It was first brought to my attention on Twitter when someone sent a Tweet asking ; "When did ESPN hire Realbrother?" I can't front, I was flattered after seeing Rob Parker's comments about Washington Redskins quarterback RGIII being a "Cornball Brother" for having a White fiance and rejecting his black race and culture even asking that people don't call him or think of him as black.

I have long been a lone voice against black self-hatred and the belief held by ninety-percent of blacks --99.9% in the UK, Canada & what remains of Nazi Germany-- that our race and culture is simply inferior to that of whites. So to have someone else espouse what I've been saying for years was comforting.

But alas my optimism was tempered when it was announced two days later that Parker had been suspended by ESPN indefinitely for his comments with no real explanation as to why. We learned this week that the suspension will be for thirty days after Parker gave in to white racists at ESPN demanding a retraction of his comments and an apology.

The problem is again apologize for what, not acting like black self-hatred and brothers buying into the myth of genetic white superiority doesn't exist?

Parker in making his comments on the First Take Show was very thorough albeit a bit nervous in explaining his motivation for questioning RGIII's consciousness as a black man.

"We know what happened with Tiger Woods." Parker proclaimed making an excellent point. I couldn't help but think of OJ Simpson on the extreme end of the Sellout spectrum.

The racist nut Skip Bayless who has something negative to say about any black athlete that refuses to date or marry a white woman or swear his allegiance to the white race quickly made reference to RGIII's braids, as if to suggest if Clarence Thomas had nappy dreads he'd be any less of a Herman Cain/Allen West/Tim Scott/Armstrong Williams.

Stephan A. Smith who bills himself as a no nonsense pull no punches independent voice was visibly peturbed with being reminded that he was black offering that the normally vociferous commentator  was indeed uncomfortable with as he put it; "where we are going". Its at that point the You Tube video ends so we never get to see what fully developed thoughts if any Smith had.

I've been monitoring Twitter & the news for any comment from anyone black or white works at ESPN willing to defend the right of blacks to discuss issues that deal with the emotional health and well being of athletes in a month where we lost Jovan Belcher because of those same issues, but alas nothing, not a peep from anyone at ESPN even if to only offer that we should have the discussion. Parker other than his apology dictated by his Corporate Masters hadn't made any comments in fact hasn't used his Twitter account since.

Friday we got a statement from Marcia Keegan, vice president of production for ESPN who oversees "First Take".  She writes:

 "As a direct result, clearly inappropriate content was aired and then re-aired without editing. Both were errors on our part. To address this, we have enhanced the editorial oversight of the show and have taken appropriate disciplinary measures with the personnel responsible for these failures.
"We will continue to discuss important issues in sports on 'First Take,' including race. Debate is an integral part of sports and we will continue to engage in it on 'First Take.' However, we believe what we have learned here and the steps we have taken will help us do all that better."

 The first line of that statement that Parker's comments were inappropriate and that the show was "re-aired" without editing those comments out is not only stupid its dumb. You suspend somebody for inappropriate comments and don't tell them why? And you suspend them in part because YOU re-aired  those comments?

And hell yes its racist for whites to suspend a black commentator for comments that wouldn't have been an issue at all if a white commentator questioned Joe Montana walking out on his white wife with the blond model that was in his shaving commercial. Nobody was suspended over criticizing Tiger Woods for cheating on his white wife and her even assaulting him and vandalizing his Caddy.

Do you blame black commentators for remaining silent in the face of this double standard?

I don't want anyone to lose their job for Rob Parker or RGIII or any single cause and or issue but I do want an honest discussion about white racism, black self-hatred and the myth of white genetic superiority that is holding America back. What Rob Parker said on First Take was the honest to God truth and to condemn him for it was wrong and somebody other than me should have spoken out about it.

BY Theron K. Cal

I write this column on the Sunday before the Tuesday when America will hopefully do the right thing and re-elect Barack Obama as the President of the United States.

All the polls show a razor close race. Networks who have accepted billions of dollars from Conservative groups and organizations as well as having been purchased and owned by those same groups buying all the advertising, implore us to tune in for the latest polls and did they mention it was close? All with the blessing of the Supreme Court courtesy of Citizens United. If you were black would you trust em'?

As a Real Brother the only Network that I can stand to watch is MSNBC which was purchased by Comcast-- the deal going through in 2011 just in time to insure the election of a white Republican President--and the reason is the other two Networks Fox and CNN skew so far right I'll break my neck tilting my head to watch.

On this Sunday MSNBC is trying something new in pre-empting their usual prison fair-- black men are scary programing to earn some of that money Conservatives have paid them by helping Mitt Romney make his case that America would be better off if our President was white even if that President is an idiot and liar.

I'll never trust the MSM again and I don't think other blacks will either.

When President Obama was elected there was really only one Network black Americans watched and that was CNN. We never saw that Network as being BET or anything but we knew they wouldn't bend the truth to push their agenda like Fox. And to be honest most of us believed that if you had one Network that was neutral then there was nothing wrong with racists having their own Network that wasn't.

But then a funny thing happened on the way to objective journalism; a black man won.

When I was a Journalism student at the University of Washington we used to joke that the school had a back end deal with David Halberstam because it seemed that each and every one of our text books was written by him. One of his beliefs was if you control the media then you control the electorate. Halberstam believed that the media doesn't simply report the news it can shape the thoughts, ideas and indeed dictate the actions of viewers.          

I never believed it but apparently Conservatives bought into it hook line and sinker. When Obama was elected, racists not wanting to give him credit focused on the Media as to the reason why.

Fox has consistently led in the ratings for many years and the fact that they were number one was not lost on CNN and MSNBC, so when Conservatives reached out to CNN and MSNBC with not only offers of loads of cash but with the possibility to compete with Fox in the ratings they both jumped at the chance, but there was an unforeseen problem.

While blacks tolerate and have even gotten used to an opposing viewpoint being presented alongside ours, Conservatives will have nothing of the sort. What CNN and MSNBC quickly found is as soon as a Conservative saw a Liberal on the stage with their guy or gal they immediately switched the channel back to Fox.

This phenomenon even extended to any positive story or suspected positive story about or surrounding President Obama. If Obama rocked the crying baby into serenity the racists changed the channel back to Fox.

Indeed a perusal of the ratings post the Conservative influx of Comcast cash has shown that the twenty-one percent new viewers that tuned into MSNBC came not from Fox but from CNN trying to be Fox Lite. In short MSNBC gained more viewers trying to get away from the Conservative point of view of CNN then were attracted to MSNBC skewing more Conservative.

This created a dilemma for MSNBC because remember they were owned now by a Conservative company that has faced more discrimination lawsuits then the ACLU allows.

Instead of drop the fake opposing racist point of view the Network decided that it would drop the Liberal point of view and simply bash Obama 24/7. What are blacks gonna do, change the channel to Fox or CNN?

My disgust with the MSM came to a head during the first Presidential Debate. Romney told one lie after another; Twenty-three million infants and shut ins are unemployed, the President doubled the ten trillion dollar debt by adding six trillion to it. Forty seven million people on food stamps in 2007 even though Obama was seated in 2009. Obama said Unemployment would be below 5.2%(only after it dipped below 8%)  and it went on and on. 

Blacks including the President left that debate confident that the fact checkers would destroy Romney, but of course they offered that Romney was far more passionate telling his lies then the President was in telling the truth so they were giving the victory to Romney. It was tragic.

Now we get this silly argument made by the same MSM that Sold Out to Conservative interests that President Obama-- the first African-American President hasn't done anything or enough for blacks. They cite the fourteen percent black unemployment due to racists being mad that the Presidents black not wanting to hire blacks or the fact that Uncle Pookie remains in prison for slangin' that crack.

The notion that a black Presidents legacy is in what he's given to or done for us as measured by racists who are afraid his success would empower blacks is silly. Blacks blame the media for this dishonest portrayal of what Obama has done for us as his success has shaken the very foundation of racism & white genetic superiority that blacks are inferior and nobody black has or ever could become President. Its so much larger than free phones and getting Pokie a pardon on his sentence.

Finally, I'm watching Chris Matthews on his special weekend contribution to the Romney Campaign, he more than anyone else with his "thrill up my leg", "I forgot he was black" comments are responsible for Conservatives buying up every media outlet in this Country. Matthews offers; "If President Obama is re-elected then he can thank Bill Clinton".  Our media refuses to give President Obama credit and it turns our collective stomachs.

If Obama wins on Tuesday blacks will never forget how the MSM simply threw us and our President under the bus, if Romney wins blacks will never forget how the MSM simply threw us and our President under the bus.

RB vs. The Right Sphere's LIES On Obama

Real Brother here. Play resumes. I wanted to debunk the lies of the Right Sphere Racists in regards to promises they claim President Obama made and later broke. If you are inclined to see the lies for yourself you can view them here: http://www.therightsphere.com/2012/04/president-flip-flop-barack-obamas-broken-promises-policy-reversals-and-continuous-flip-flops
President Obama's Flip Flops, Broken Promises
There were sixty-four items listed by the article that were billed as "flip flops" and or "failed promises" that Candidate or President Obama has made and each and every one of them are false. I will address each in the order the Sphere presents them; 1) Obama said, he "Wasn't ready to run for President"  but six years later ran for President. This one is easy and silly as yes in 2002 Senate Candidate Obama did offer that he was not qualified to run for President but six years later why not?  Saying he wasn't ready six years before being ready is hardly a flip flop or broken promise.

2) Obama Voted Not To raise Debt Ceiling as Senator but lamented Racists trying to default on America's obligations in order to shame and embarrass him because he's Black.  Sen. Obama first counted votes to make sure there were enough yes votes before making his symbolic no vote. Also, Bush eventually spent twelve point three TRILLION DOLLARS in borrowed money which remains as the highest deficit spending in the history of the Nation. Protesting this reckless spending was the right thing for Senator Obama to do. That President Obama would cut Bush's Deficit in half is hardly a flip flop or a broken promise.

3) Obama Promised to End Bush Tax Cuts and then extended them for two years after Racists balked at offering more Stimulus because of the success the first Stimulus had in growing the GDP twenty-five percent and creating eight million jobs. Using the Bush Tax Cuts in order to get an additional eight hundred billion for the middle class was prudent and the Bush Tax Cuts will expire in 2013.  

4) Obama Promised to Not Raise Taxes on Poor or Middle Class and then raised taxes on Millionaires and Billionaires. No Obama promised not to raise "Payroll Taxes" and he didn't.

5) Obama Promised to Raise Taxes on Millionaires & Billionaires but didn't offer the "Buffet Rule."  He did, he did offer the Buffet Rule and its being voted on this week by the Racists.

6) Obama Promised to Eliminate All Taxes for Seniors. That's a damn lie; a President can't eliminate State & Local Taxes for Seniors and only Congress can end the minimum seven percent tax rate. 

7) Obama Promised Paygo and Then Offered to Extend the Bush Tax Cuts without paying for them. First of all Obama NEVER promised Paygo it was a demand that Racists made of him that he was willing to adhere to to please them. The fact that Racists never demanded the Bush Tax Cuts be payed for proves they're full of crap. 

8) Obama Blasts Racists For Talking About Spending Freezes While Spending Twelve Point Three Trillion Dollars and then proposed a spending freeze of his own in 2013 after reducing spending by Seventy Five Percent. Silly.  Since when have Racists been for more Government 

9) Obama Promised to Reduce Earmarks and then Reduced Earmarks. How is that a promise broken or a flip flop? Reducing Earmarks is not the same as NO EARMARKS ever.

10) Obama Promised All Contracts over Twenty Five Thousand Dollars Would Be Competitively Bid and then found out that some of those contracts were competitively bid on. What's the problem? Please define what a Racist thinks a competitive bid is?

11) Obama Promised to Give Working Families a Child Care Tax Break and then gave ALL working class families a Tax Break regardless of whether or not they had children of child care age. How is that a broken promise or flip flop?

12) Obama Promised Two Billion in Additional Funding for NASA and then added Ten Billion Dollars of PRIVATE funding for NASA while cutting Government funding for the agency. Racists against the private sector? Since when? Promise kept.

13) Obama Was Against the Iraq War and then ended the Iraq War thirty days earlier than promised. How the hell is that a flip flop or broken promise? 

14) Obama Opposed the Iraq War and as Such the Surge. And? Had we never entered that War the Surge would have not been necessary.

15) Obama Got Unanimous Congressional Approval for the UN Resolution to go into  Libya as per the Constitution  but Racists in Congress simply lied about it and said he didn't. Silly and stupid 

16) Hot Mic Moment RE: Russia; How is having more flexibility after he's re-elected a flip flop or a broken promise? No it was the truth.

17) Obama Isn't Willing to Protect Israel because he's a secret Muslim. Please, that's nonsense.

18) Obama Hates the Sudan and Egypt because they are in Africa. Please, that's more nonsense and is not a flip flop or broken promise its just plain dumb.

19) Obama Promised to Ease the Embargo on Cuba and Obama has indeed eased the embargo in Cuba. What? Easing is easing not a total resending of all sanctions. 

20) Obama is soft on Iran, because he's a secret Muslim. Again that's just plain stupid.

21) Obama criticized NAFTA and as President hasn't supported NAFTA and? 

22) Obama Said He'd Reach Out to Hugo Chavez and as far as we know hasn't reached out to him. If true then I'm sure the President has a good reason nothing worth destroying America over.

23) Obama Promised to Give a State of the Union Address and not a State of the World Address. Where do these Racists come up with these lies? Prove to me Obama said anything about a State of the World Address?

24) Obama Has Ended America's Image as a Racist Hypocrite of a Country by electing a Black President and this has hurt the image of America among Racist Nations. Good, America is not served by being seen by the rest of the world as Racist.

25) ENERGY POLICY;  Obama criticized Bush invading Iraq to steal their oil thus making the gas prices go up while imposing sanctions on Iran for their Nuclear program causing gas prices to go up. Can you say FALSE EQUIVALENCY?

26) CAP & TRADE; Obama promised Cap & Trade and then imposed emission standards that reduced our dependency on foreign oil by two million barrels per year by improving the fuel efficiency of American autos. Where is the broken promise or flip flop?

27) Obama Promised to Use the Strategic Oil Reserves Only in an Emergency. Who's to say Racists destroying the Country to punish it for electing a Black President and using high gas prices as their excuse is NOT an Emergency?

28) Obama Didn't Approve of Keystone; Obama didn't approve of Keystone because an environmental study wasn't done. Obama approved of the Southern portion of the Pipeline. Weak Racists weak. Keystone was a Texas Oil Refinery earmark that would have NOT increased America's gas supply or created significant jobs.

29) Obama was Open to Nuclear Power Until the Japanese Nuclear Plant melted down during the Earthquake. Being "Open" to Nuclear Power is not a promise to advance it.

30) Obama Never Passed the Dream Act; The Dream Act came up for at least two votes but Racists voted it down. The President did sign an "Executive Order" adopting the Dream Act provisions as policy. Racists will NEVER get the Hispanic vote so please stop trying.

31) Obama was Against the Mandate in HCR until Racists offered that if he included one in his Bill they'd vote for it. Obama remains against the Mandate but not to the point to where he wants Racists to outlaw the entire Law.

32) Obama NEVER promised Single Payer, he said he was for it but NEVER promised it. Again no flip flop or broken promise.

33) Obama Promised that Racists Could Keep their High Priced Private Insurance unless it becomes more profitable for Private Ins. Companies to sign onto Obamacare but that doesn't mean Racists can't still find High Priced Private Insurance if they're that stupid.

34) Obama Agreed to a Health Care Law That was Deficit Neutral and Saved 100 Billion over ten years and was paid for. The CBO says the ACA is Deficit Neutral and Saves 100 Billion over ten years but Racists LIE about it and claim their analysts say the Law violates the Law which is silly because its LAW. 

35) Obama Promised the ACA Will Cover Up to 30  Million people who are uninsured later amended to be 50 million people. Racists tell the lie that 25 million people won't be covered and that's just a bold faced lie unless those 25 million are illegal aliens because illegals aren't covered.

36) ACA was Passed using Reconciliation: This LIE is dumb because the President had used Reconciliation on something else and didn't have it available. No, Obama got a 51% majority in the House and a 60 vote majority in the Senate no Racists voted for it. 

38) Obama Promised that ALL Debates and Votes on the House & Senate floor are to be televised on C-SPAN. They were, to suggest they weren't is a LIE. They never said they'd take the camera's home with them.

39) Obama Promised to Punish Employers who Hire Illegals by Deporting Their Illegal Workforce. More illegals have been deported by Obama than any other President. Taking away their cheap labor force is punishment enough.

40) Obama Denounced Torture so of course Racists will lie and say its still going on. Also Obama did denounce Military Tribunals and tried to bring all the detainees to trial in the U.S. but Racists wouldn't allow it. Some were tried here but no its not a broken promise or flip flop its a fact of Racist political reality.

41) Torture and Abuse Photos of Gitmo Detainees Were Released and then the Obama Administration stopped releasing these type of  humiliating photos; No, the photos were leaked by the Racists at Wikileaks and Freedom of Information Acts and news organizations, You Tube hacks etc. The policy of the Government is to not release these type of photos but if they are its not a broken promise or flip flop its a breach by Racists with little respect for the President because of his race.

42) Senator Obama Criticized President Bush's Abusive Use of the Patriot Act; and then used the same Patriot Act to get Osama Bin Laden; That's OK because abusing a Law is different than using the Law correctly. 

43) Obama supported PIPA and FISA and Restricting Internet Freedom; This is stupid because none of those Bills EVER made it out of Congress and who's to say the President would have signed the Bills if they did? The internet is one of the few places where Real Brothers can actually support the Black President so why would he want to censor one of the few places of his support? 

44) Obama Promised he'd go into Pakistan and Capture and Kill Osama Bin Laden and then did it.  Racists have no argument of flip flop or broken promise there and need to quit.

45) Obama Said He'd Accept Public Funding for His 08' Presidential Campaign because he was Black and felt that he'd never raise more than the Two Million Dollars that a Publicly Financed Campaign would afford him. David Geffen, Steven Spielberg and Oprah said don't do it they'll give him three million so he decided against Public Financing. Again, since when are Racists against the free market and private sector? When it benefits someone Black. It was NOT a promise or flip flop it was a sound business decision.

46) Obama Agreed To Seven Debates With the Racist NUT John McCain. McCain not realizing who he was dealing with asked for a series of Town Halls with small Racist audiences hoping to be able to bully and intimidate Obama with Racist Tea Party Nuts in the audience with automatic assault riffles. Obama wasn't trying to let these Racist Idiots assassinate him and sought to limit his public appearances to safe secure public places. No flip flop or broken promise just commonsense. 

47) Obama Promised to Raise the Minimum Wage To $9.75 per hour.  That's a damn LIE. Obama promised no such thing and again Racists need to quit.

48) Obama Called for Civility after Tea Party Racist Jerrod Loughner MURDERED Six and Wounded Thirteen Presumed Obama Supporters in Tucson AZ.  Racists continued to MURDER and Terrorize the Obama Supporters in defiance of Obama's call for Civility. That Racists refuse to be Civil is NOT a broken promise or flip flop on President Obama's part. Its a testament to how violent and stupid Racists are.

49)  Obama has Opined that Racists who MURDER and Mame their way into power are UN-Patriotic. I agree. This is not a broken promise or flip flop its a FACT. Murder of your political opponents is extremely UN-Patriotic.

50)  Obama Formed the Simpson Bowles Commission and Then When Racists Rejected Their Proposals Blamed Obama for not accepting their proposals. Congress should have passed Simpson Bowles and then we would have found out whether or not the President supported their recommendations.

51) Obama Promised to Post Bills Online Before They are Voted On, So when Racists Filibustered or Delayed a vote until the last minute leaving NO TIME to Post the final Bill online before the vote Racists complained that it was a broken promise. Had incomplete or inaccurate Bills been posted the same Racists would complain about that. 

52) The President Promised to Convert the 600,000 Vehicle White House Fleet to Clean Energy by the Year 2015. By April 1, 2011 50% more vehicles have been converted to clean energy. See update here:      Its not 2015 yet but the Government is well on its way to reaching its goal. The LIE that NONE of the fleet has been converted is silly.

53) Obama Accepted NO CONTRIBUTIONS from Super Packs or Corporations during the 08' Campaign but after Citizens United relented and encouraged donors to support his Super Pack for 2012. This is NOT a broken promise or flip flop due to the Supreme Court actually Changing the Law.  Obama cannot bring a butter knife to a gun fight. Racists still have a financial advantage due to 450 years of Racist fiscal policy. 

54) Obama Supported the DC Hand Gun Ban. This is a LIE because the President was No Longer a Senator and as such didn't have a vote in the matter as a Candidate running for President. Second the President said he Supported the Courts Decision to strike down the Ban. Third the President knows Racists would go nuts if he attempted to restrict gun laws. The President signed a Bill to allow weapons to be carried into and used in Federal Parks.

55) The President Promised to Support Public Education yet Nixed the DC Voucher Program where 20 Million Students sought Vouchers to a private school that holds 500 students. No, the answer is to simply fire the Racist, White Supremacist, Black man hating wish they were White Sellouts who refuse to teach Black & Latino children that have corrupted our Public Schools.

56) Obama in 2002 Said That We Should Discuss The Failed War on Drugs but he didn't think legalization was the answer. Today Obama says we should Discuss the Failed War on Drugs but he doesn't think legalization is the answer. Racists say that's a flip flop and broken promise and that's just silly.

57) Obama Criticized Unions That Supported Hillary & John Edwards because they were White and later accepted their support. How is that a broken promise or flip flop? What, the President is supposed to criticize the Unions for supporting him? Unions have traditionally supported Democrats just not a Black one.

58) Senator Obama Voted Twice to Uphold the Late Term Abortion Law in Illinois. Racists claim that Obama is Pro-Abortion because he supported the Illinois Law. Had Obama voted against the Law they would have said he was Pro-Abortion. 

59) Obama Said He Wouldn't Wear The Flag Pin that Racists Who Don't Believe in Freedom for All Americans were Wearing. Now The President wears the Flag Pin. This is NOT a flip flop as America has proven that they reject the Racist exclusion of Blacks as Americans.

60) Obama Criticized President Clinton for Breaking Up Black Families and Forcing Black Men Out of the Home with Devastating Welfare Reform. Yet Obama has used Clinton to ease the fears of Racist Democrats uncomfortable with a Black President. This is not a broken promise or flip flop as Obama continues to criticize Clinton for Welfare Reform and NAFTA. 

61) Obama Spent Twenty Years Learning & Honing His Skills Under Christian Reverend Jeremiah Wright. How this is a flip flop or broken promise is beyond me. If anything it proves that Obama's not a Muslim.

62) Obama Promised to LIMIT the Number of Lobbyists in his Administration. He NEVER promised NOT to accept money from Lobbyists or to not want their votes. That "some" lobbyists like Joe Biden's son were allowed into Obama's Administration is not a broken promise to REDUCE or LIMIT the number of lobbyists. Obama NEVER said No Lobbyists At All.

63) Racists link to Politifact looking for money from Racist organizations who have made up more lies about Obama simply to fund raise. I will NOT address their nonsense because most of their lies mirror the Sphere piece. If there are specific points Racists would like for me to address I will.
