A flag and 15 yards for a slur

Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words will never hurt me. Or so we once thought.

America's schoolyards were tough places to play in the old days, where kids settled their arguments with skinned knuckles, bloody noses and a minimum of grown-up interference. But that was when the well-prepared scholar arrived for the first day of school with a Big Chief tablet, a clutch of Eberhard Faber No. 2 pencils, a bag lunch (if he could avoid the lunchroom), and an apple for the teacher. Now it's against the law to bribe a teacher, an iPad mini has replaced the Big Chief and most important of all, every kid needs his lawyer.

TOPICS: Sports; Weird Stuff
KEYWORDS:
Never heard of anything so stupid in all my life. Rappers and black "comedians" use the N-word every other word out of their mouths, but it's considered "artistic expression", so no one says a word about it. They also talk (because that's all rapping is) about murdering cops and raping women, but once again they get a free pass because of the color of their skin. The rapper in chief invites these thugs to the White House where they have a sleep over in the Lincoln bedroom, eating all the fried chicken and chitlins they want because the first rapper just wants to be one of da brothas. George Washington is rolling over in his grave knowing this nothing is trying his best to destroy the country that the Founding Fathers fought and died for. And less not for that the first brotha flew the US Flags at Half Staff when a drug-addicted black singer died of a drug overdose, but completely ignored it when a former two-time American Ambassador passed away who also happened to be one of the world's greatest entertainers. This is the kind of low-class nothing this country elected, not once but twice. How much lower can we sink as a civilized society.

Sickening.

Did he even order the flag fly at half-staff when Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed?

I would think not because when they say it it will not be "hate speech."

The only thing good about punishing foul language at the line will be that the NFL might be able to live telecast the sound more loudly and clearly than they generally have in the past with less fear of offending audiences.

This might actually lead to making the games a bit more exciting.

There are lots of things that the players can say to each other to intimidate, threaten, or confuse their opponents without stooping to profanity.

Blacks dominate all professional sports except hockey and golf, in spite of compromising just 15% of the US population. But Jimmy the Greek gets fired for stating the obvious.

This crusade started as a way to eliminate what is primly called "the n-word" in pointed and polite discussions of the word, but has quickly morphed into a crusade against "the f-word" as well..."The f-word"...[refers] to "fag" or "faggot."


MiG-15, NATO code name--Faggot

The MIG-15 was code-named “Fagot”, not “Faggot”. According to militaryfactory.com and Merriam-Webster, the dictionary meaning is “a bundle of sticks”.

On paper, they will.

In practice, we'll see which lily white linesman or referee has the stones to toss the flag when a Charles Woodson or Terrell Suggs utters the super nasty no-no word. I won't hold my breath.

“Faggot” means the same thing as “fagot,” but it seems to be the preferred spelling in America.

“Faggot” means the same thing as “fagot,”

It doesn't, in the context in which the plane was named. The NATO nomenclature was "F" for role as a fighter and two syllables for a jet aircraft.

From everything I have read on the subject, the name "Fagot" for the MIG-15 has nothing to do with homosexuality, and I have never seen the plane referred to with two "g"s in its code name.

But frankly, there are plenty of other ways we can tweak the left.

“Seems like ever since Baraq came on the scene, the national discussion is constantly about race. Everything is about race”.

And it’s always the “first black president”. Criticize anything about him and you’re a racist. What I want to know is why is he called, 1000 times a day on TV, the “first black president”. If his race is going to be mentioned (and I don’t know why it should be), why is he never called what he is, the nation’s first “bi-racial” president, or “mullato” president.

When this empty-suited Marxist was running for president he constantly talked about his WHITE mother and his WHITE grandparents. He didn’t want to be referred to as a black man because he said he was bi-racial (which he certainly is).

The minute this lying race-baiter becomes president it’s black this and black that, and you’re a racist if you criticize him in any way, shape or form. His white mother and white grandparents were thrown under the bus the minute he said his oath of office.

If this nothing was not completely destroying the country as the US president, he would be teaming up with Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to stir up racial trouble all over the country. Anyone ever saw all the pictures of all the blondes this arrogant creep ran around with him when he lived in Hawaii. Back then he was “white”. He never talked to a black woman till he married his current wife, and that was for obvious reasons. He wanted to play the race card as the way to get into politics and needed a black wife. The nation’s first bi-racial (not black) president makes me sick to my stomach and has destroyed the country that thousands fought and died for all over the world. It will never be the same.

I occasionally hear references to "MiG-15's" in San Francisco, West Hollywood, Silverlake, etc., places where one doesn't see too many North Korean fighter planes. Wonder why? The Urban Dictionary provides a clue.

MLB isn’t dominated by black athletes like NBA or NFL. There are less US blacks playing pro baseball now than in the 70s.

Most Hispanics playing aren’t black, they are Latino.

In any case, in 2012 the MLB was 63.9% white. That’s up from the all time low of 60.3% in 2004. In 2013 the NFL was 29.26% white. In 2012, 78% of all professional basketball players were US blacks.

“Most Hispanics playing aren’t black, they are Latino”

You have black hispanics and you have black latinos. You have white hispanics and white latinos. I consider them one in the same. The vast majority of latino/hispanic baseball players are of black ancestry. So that means one thing, even in Latin American countries the blacks are better at sports than the population of European ancestry. You can also watch the Summer Olympics. All sprint races are dominated by black athletes. All endurance races, once dominated by white athletes, are now dominated by black Africans. All sports that require jumping and running are dominated by black athletes. Weight lifting, I think, is probably still mostly of European stock.

Look, if the MLB is 60+% white then blacks aren’t dominating that sport no matter how you want to define them. Not because of any lack of talent, skill, smarts, or athletic ability, but because the nature of the baseball skill set generally allows more competition from whites, Asians and non black hispanolatinoblackwhite whatevers. The NBA and NFL skill set and physical requirements generally allows less competition from those others, usually on a purely physical level. Also, the skill set for baseball at the major league level usually requires very frequent repetition at a very young age, usually from fathers.

I never meant to say that MLB was dominated by black athletes. But the vast majority of the black players in baseball are hispanic/latino. I agree with you about the skill set in baseball allowing for more white players. Not so much in basketball and football, where its who can run the fastest and jump the highest. And, let’s not forget that black kids grow up idolizing ball players instead of their fathers. They all think they can make it to the NBA. And I think I read somewhere where you have a better chance of walking on the moon than you do making the NBA.

I think part of the reason that so many bullpens are full of tall athletic white lanky kids throwing 95+ in recent years is that they have started choosing baseball instead of trying to compete with tall athletic black lanky guys at younger and younger ages in basketball.

You are right about the physical requirements in football and basketball. The great equalizer in baseball is hitting a round ball fair with a round bat, especially when it’s 90+ and your timing is messed up with slower breaking balls and change ups. If you can do that, some of the other more physical skills that might be lacking don’t matter as much.

Probably the greatest hitter of all time Ted Williams said hitting a baseball was the hardest thing there is to do in sports. He would be asked how he was so good at it and he would say he practiced all the time and still missed more than 60% of the pitches.

Yup, baseball is a game of failure, at least for hitting. You are doing really good if you manage to do it 3 times out of 10, in the modern era only a handful have even approached 4 out of 10, with one surpassing it. No one has ever done it half the time.
