    Controversial black sports columnist Jason Whitlock compared black conservative scholar Thomas Sowell to a house slave in a series of tweets on Wednesday. When asked what columnist he felt was closely related to Samuel L. Jackson’s character in the “Django Unchained” movie, Whitlock tweeted, “Thomas Sowell":
  • Gregory Kane: Is Jason Whitlock a 'blame whitey firster'?

    Some background might be in order before I proceed. Whitlock wrote a piece recently just after Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher fatally shot his girlfriend, then shot himself. In his column Whitlock, an African-American, (yes, that is pertinent to this story) took National Football League officials to task for allowing a game between the Chiefs and the Carolina Panthers to be played on Sunday, Dec. 2, only one day after the shocking and horrifying murder-suicide. Whitlock's column was passionate; it was eloquent; it was extremely well written. I didn't agree with much of it, but the column was indeed...
  • The vile, racist bigot Whitlock and the NRA’s history defending blacks

    12/05/2012 7:20:11 PM PST · by marktwain · 16 replies
    The vile and repugnant Jason Whitlock just keeps the hits on coming. His ignorant screed denigrating our civil rights following an incident where a Kansas City Chiefs NFL player slayed his wife and then went to the Chief’s training area to thank his coach before doing society a favor and offing himself was offensive enough to America’s one hundred plus million gun owners. Jason’s Whitlock’s inner racist bigotry was out for all to see in subsequent remarks he made, equating the National Rifle Association and America’s gun owners with the Ku Klux Klan. Here is what the knuckle-dragging racist bigot...

    On CNN contributor Roland Martin’s podcast posted to his website Monday, Jason Whitlock, the columnist who inspired Bob Costas’ commentary on gun control during halftime of Sunday’s Dallas Cowboys-Philadelphia Eagles game on NBC, revealed his peculiar take on the National Rifle Association (NRA).Whitlock spoke out against the NFL’s handling of the aftermath of Jovan Belcher’s suicide and gun issues in his Sunday FoxSports.com column. During Martin’s podcast, he likened the NRA to the Ku Klux Klan and tied the group to the dangerous street culture that unfortunately dominates “so many black youths.”“Sports gets so much attention, and people tune out...
  • Whitlock's apology to Limbaugh: Mistakes undermined message

    Let me first apologize to Rush Limbaugh. Last week in explaining why NFL commissioner Roger Goodell needed to put an end to Limbaugh's latest publicity stunt, I attributed racially insensitive quotes to Limbaugh that I read in two Missouri newspapers, saw on CNN and confirmed through a Google search. Prior to posting the article, I never found a denial of these quotes by Limbaugh, and had no reason to believe those statements were not true. It was unfair to Limbaugh. And I regret that. I've commented on some of his earlier controversies. I've long been an admirer of his broadcasting...

    About that Whitlock/Limbaugh spat Welcome, BigGovernment.com readers. A couple of points: 1. Please read what I actually wrote below, not what the inaccurate headline on Breitbart's BigGovernment.com says I wrote. I am emphatically not The Kansas City Star. I am its readers' representative. Approximately 75 - 80 percent of what I air here and in my column comes from conservatives' critiques of the paper and KansasCity.com. My record is clear throughout my years in this post. 2. I do not "defend" Whitlock's column for FoxSports here. In fact, if you will read the post below, you will see I say...

    There's a reason I call them the Black KKK. The pain, the fear and the destruction are all the same. Someone who loved Sean Taylor is crying right now. The life they knew has been destroyed, an 18-month-old baby lost her father, and, if you're a black man living in America, you've been reminded once again that your life is in constant jeopardy of violent death. The Black KKK claimed another victim, a high-profile professional football player with a checkered past this time. No, we don't know for certain the circumstances surrounding Taylor's death. I could very well be proven...

    The Black KKK claimed another victim, a high-profile professional football player with a checkered past this time. No, we don't know for certain the circumstances surrounding Taylor's death. I could very well be proven wrong for engaging in this sort of aggressive speculation. But it's no different than if you saw a fat man fall to the ground clutching his chest. You'd assume a heart attack, and you'd know, no matter the cause, the man needed to lose weight. But we don't want to deal with ourselves. We take great joy in prescribing medicine to cure the hate in other...

    Bill Maas is Pacman Jones, and we’re Maas’ enabling posse. I’m talking about all of us who sit quietly or crack jokes while Maas’ life spirals out of control. Maybe it’s fear. Maybe those of us who have known Billy Bob realize that he’s armed, dangerous and unpredictable. Maybe we fear for our own safety, so we choose to hold our tongues and ignore a pattern of troubling behavior — a sexual-harassment complaint in St. Louis, an arrest in Illinois for carrying drugs and a loaded firearm and now detained at the airport with a loaded 9mm pistol — that...

    It started with Spike Lee holding up a duplication of the USA Today sports cover story about NFL athletes and their problems with law enforcement. The story included 41 mug shots of NFL players who had been arrested in 2006 — 39 of those players were African-American. Spike Lee began the panel discussion — The Black Athlete Forum at Atlanta’s historic Morehouse College, which featured Jim Brown, Vivian Stringer, William Rhoden, Stephen A. Smith, yours truly and others — by asking Alonzo Mourning and two other professional athletes to explain whether the image was fair or unfair to black athletes....

    When I criticized his and Jesse Jackson’s irresponsible and divisive methods of seeking social justice Friday morning, Al Sharpton dismissed the attack by questioning my credibility to lodge a complaint. “There are always guys that are not in the ring who want to call the fight,” Sharpton said. “You know that going in the ring; you’re going to have critics … You can’t satisfy people who are not in the ring.” It’s a clever response. It ignores the obvious. Jesse and Al don’t want anyone else in the ring. They’ve turned the fight for racial equality into a money and...

    I’m calling for Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, the president and vice president of Black America, to step down.Their leadership is stale. Their ideas are outdated. And they don’t give a damn about us. We need to take a cue from White America and re-elect our leadership every four years. White folks realize that power corrupts. That’s why they placed term limits on the presidency. They know if you leave a man in power too long he quits looking out for the interest of his constituency and starts looking out for his own best interest. We’ve turned Jesse and Al...

    VIDEO Okay, I'm not Peach ( :O) ), but I tried to transcribe this Tucker Carlson/Jason Whitlock interview as fully as possible. Here's a [partial] transcript from Jason's interview with Tucker [on MSNBC] earlier today: TUCKER: In the course of expressing his contrition on The Today Show, Don Imus asserted his offensive language was the product of African-American culture -- not the creation of White America. Few were impressed by that claim, but our next guest believes Imus was making an important point. JASON: People that don't want to see black people advance have won. Don Imus is irrelevant...

Police arrested Simmons Sunday morning at the scene of a carjacking and kidnapping. Investigators found Sarah Whitlock, 23, stabbed to death in her apartment eight days ago.

    I am not now, nor have I ever been, jealous of professional athletes. Despite the massive amounts of money earned by today's modern pro athlete, I've never wasted a moment regretting the fact that my athletic career ended as a mediocre Division I offensive lineman. Even when I was broke and living in a one-room, roach-infested efficiency in a small southern Indiana town, I never once felt a minute of envy as my old high school teammate, Jeff George, was selected No. 1 in the 1990 NFL draft and received a seven-figure signing bonus. It must be tiring carrying the...
