Day: July 7, 2009

Comedian Dave Chappelle had a fondness for the word “nigger.” He used it liberally in his comedy bits, even extending the racial slur to non-black people. It became a catch all handle for any and everyone. It was just an expression for him and it was one that got laughs.

To a point.

Some people were laughing with Chappelle and that infamous word. Others were laughing at him. And nothing disturbed him more than the individuals who relished in the taboo nature of the racially charged term. Those who longed to say it with reckless abandon, who argued that if Chappelle could say it, if other black people could say it, if rappers could say it, why couldn’t white people say it too?

“Super Genius” Jason WhitlockResident sports “Super Genius” Jason Whitlock made an attempt at “truth-tellin'” Monday by taking Serena Williams’ Wimbeldon win and using it as an excuse to rehash old mess about Williams being “overweight,” “a whiner,” “underachiever (!!!) and “like Paris Hilton (!!!!!!!!).”

He tries to save himself with the tired ol’ “You can call me unfair. You can even scream that I’m sexist …”

And all the people making excuses for Serena and rationalizing her failure to totally dominate women’s tennis are the very people uninterested in seeing women rise to a level of equality with men.

But we all know this is just code for “I’m about to say something so sexist that your head will pull a Linda Blair and pea soup will cover your monitors, but don’t bitch me out, ladies n’ gents! I’m just keepin’ it real … sexist!

Whitlock goes on to spend much of the column talking about Williams’ “pumpkin booty” versus a much more preferred “onion booty,” discounting her 11 grand slam wins even though they equal that of one of the greatest female players of all time, and basically calling her out as a loser despite her penchant for winning.

Case in point: Vice Chairman of the Young Republicans Audra Shay and her coon-hatin’ thread on Facebook. Let the ig’nance commence!
