During my morning run I was approached by a guy on the local construction crew who saw my Huskies pullover and said he coached former four year starter, all Pac-12 Quarterback Keith Price from the age of six until he was sixteen years old. 

He told me he got a call from Russell Wilson of the Superbowl Champion Seattle Seahawks who had recently spoken with Price who expressed disappointment and not being invited to workout for NFL Scouts at the recent and upcoming combine when players are being evaluated for the 2014 NFL Draft. 

As the Coach explained, Wilson also expressed displeasure at Price not being invited to the combine and wondered if there was anything he could do to change the mind of the Scouts. The Coach said certainly--anything for the Super Bowl Champ--and Price was on a plane to his hometown of Long Beach, CA. 

They laid down some tires, ropes and put Price through the drills that would be required of the Combine making sure to document everything on film.

The workouts culminated in a marketing campaign put together by the Coach and Price's father with a forward by Wilson himself.

After a more than minor bit of cajoling, Price's father got a call from an NFL official inviting the former Compton California born St. John's Bosco High School stand out-- who's over 2,260 yards passing and 24 touchdowns, while also rushing for 579 yards and 10 touchdowns was only bested by current NFL Quarterback Matt Barkley--to the combine.

Not performing for NFL Scouts doesn't end the hopes of would be athletes with dreams of playing on Sunday. There are numerous high profile Tom Brady's who were selected dead last in NFL Drafts or Tony Romo's not drafted at all in part due to not being invited to or impressing at the NFL Combine. 

Yet more importantly, while the chances of being drafted earlier doesn't guarantee a spot on an NFL roster it does guarantee a more lucrative payday if not a colossal six-figure signing bonus. 

The Coach--who never bothered to tell me his name--said that Price needed a refresher course on his mechanics and footwork but he's confident the private workouts will give him an edge in what most consider a very weak class of quarterbacks in this years draft. If last year was any gauge the field is wide-open with EJ Manual being the only QB drafted in the first round.

Johnny Manziel
The smart money is that former Heisman winner Johnny Manziel will be the first signal caller taken followed by Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater, University of Central Florida's Blake Bortles, Eastern Illinois Jimmy Garoppolo and Fresno States Derek Carr who the Sporting News have listed above Manziel but I think they're smokin' a lil' too much ganga. 

While nobody thinks the Houston Texans would gamble the first pick on Manziel or any of the class of 2014 quarterbacks, there are a number of teams talking trades in an effort to move up with the expressed intent to draft the kid dubbed Johnny football. 

With the recent lack of interest in quarterbacks by the league a QB with the pedigree of Price just may be able to shine.  Next month the league will hold its last showcase; The Super Regional Combine in Detroit on April 12-13. We will be rooting for Kieth Price and thanking Russell Wilson for paying it forward.

Once again our boy Roland S. Martin is wrong as two left shoes with the toes turned up.  He recently published a Op-Ed on his blog entitled: Blacks Defending the N-word are Dead Wrong, the text of which you can read here: http://rolandmartinreports.com/blog/2014/03/roland-s-martin-blacks-defending-the-n-word-are-dead-wrong/

The premise of the piece is as advertised; Roland thinks whites are
superior and blacks are stupid so when Richard Sherman uses the word it means the same as when George Zimmerman does and in fact when Sherman uses it after a great play by one of his black teammates that gives Zimmy one more free murder of a black kid. 

"OK, gotcha. And for years we have gotten used to eating everything fried, but that don’t mean we can ignore the effects on our heart and cholesterol." ~Roland S. Martin

Bad analogy. Eating fried food in moderation isn't any worse on our heart or arteries than the belief that whites are superior to us and can simply blame us using the N-Word for their hatred of us.  

All studies show that the health of African-Americans is far more tied to our self-esteem, belief in our self-worth and value of our race and culture far more so than what we eat or how we react to someone using the N-word.

This notion that we have to accept the white interpretation of the N-word when used by us is absurd. Anyone who'd use that term would have far more racial pride than to even consider what a racist or supremacist would think. 

And no, anyone who would work the word into casual conversation especially with whites listening in would have to be an idiot, nobody does that. 

Who can forget when Bone-Thugs and Harmony won the Grammy and the Brother got on stage and spontaneously yelled out... Nigga Whaaaat! 

Who are we kidding here? I know I'm not the only one that noticed Lupita mouth the word S-H-I-T when her name was announced. Its called context and its different when we use the N-word and Michael Dunn uses the words "Thug and Gangsta". He doesn't have to use the N-word, we know what he means. 

As blacks we aren't supposed to be intelligent enough to know the difference between a racist using the word "thug" and Seahawks using the N-word among one another. Its insulting because it assumes a lack of intelligence that typifies the white version of the word.

The Laws of language dictate those who use the word get to define that word, which still leaves room for multiple cultures to have different meanings for the same word. I heard at least one, "That's Gangsta" on that Oscar stage the other night and I guarantee you it wasn't the same meaning that Michael Dunn used before he murdered Jordan Davis. 

"At some point its time to grow up and admit that the N-word is corrosive and nothing more than a continuation of white supremacy. This is not a debate. This should not be a lengthy discussion. It’s time to have more self-respect for our ancestors and us and strike the hateful word from our vocabulary. "  ~Roland S. Martin

Wrong. This deferring to whites in regards to this word is the height of buying into the MYTH of white supremacy. They can't use the word, we can, end of story. 

You don't see us complaining about the only movie they see fit to give an award to is the Slave movie made by a bunch a Sellout Brothers married to white women. Life is oftentimes not fair. 

Nobody black is condoning the white version and historical context of the N-word. We are simply asserting our knowledge of our version of the word and how it has nothing to do with their version no matter how its said or interpreted. 

Please let me and Roland know who's side you fall on and wish him better luck next time. 

Those are my thoughts as usual I invite yours. Don't forget The Real Brother Radio Show, Weekdays on the Black Talk Radio Network.

I think I've figured out why our so called Black leaders, our revolutionaries--the Sellout Brothers Sold Out Dr. King and Malcolm X--are so afraid to accept our progress and move on to the next goal as opposed to going back to 1960 to start over again marching for Civil and Voting Rights and full U.S. Citizenship.
Whenever we have a victory be it Obama winning elections the Seahawks winning the Superbowl or the Slave Movie made by the Black people married to White women wins an Oscar we get a spat of Black Need2Grows reminding us that nothing has changed in 200 years and that Slavery is still going on in the NBA.

What they don’t realize is this cynical self-defeatist nonsense is a turn off to anyone considering supporting these Black organizations and individuals because what they’re suggesting has nothing to do with the reality of the moment.

Nobody’s suggesting that our recent victories mean Blacks have full equality or that America is post Racial and its OK for us to all marry a White girl but can we at least acknowledge that rejecting the myth that Whites are superior has at least–even if in a minor way–worked?

If we really examine why Racists are using Stand Your Ground Laws and Voter ID Laws and Citizen United Supreme Court decisions to oppress and re-enslave Blacks you will find that they looked at Civil Rights and Voting Rights laws and saw the success we had with LAWS the COURTS and are simply copying us.
Obama signs a James Byrd-Matthew Shepard Hate Crime Law that says you can’t kill someone because they’re Black and Racists in Florida and 26 other States make a law saying the exact opposite?
How weak are we as Blacks that tactics that we employ are being adopted by Racists and we dont’ even acknowledge their effectiveness?

Instead of rejecting and censoring voices like mine that are calling for us to acknowledge our victories while moving to the next battle the next goal the next Civil Rights movement in favor of denying our victory in the hopes that well go back to 1960 and start all over again, we need to listen to me and stop trippin.

I last week addressed the Black idiots Jelani Cobb, Imani Perry and NY Times Columnist Charles M. Blow and how they scrambled to defend the MYTH of White Supremacy for their MSM masters who are on pins and needles that Obama's Brothers Keeper initiative will elevate the scum of the earth-- in the minds of society-- the most hated life form on the planet; young Black boys. 

Well since that column we've had Part-time Brother Toure' of the Talented Tenth weigh in as well as "Fox News, please hire me, I'll be a good slave" Don Lemon who dubbed Obama, "Finally...the Black President."  

Also checking in; Stop and Frisk maven and multi-billionaire
Michael Bloomberg as well as "We need to find a new politician Obama's not the guy" George Soros. 

All collectively praising the President in all of his naivete' and for all his too little too lateness before proceeding to offer that Whites are superior and their racism and superiority is systemic and therefore beyond the control of Blacks to erode.

I can't even front I bought it, Black Need2grows saying that Obama's message of personal responsibility was simply pandering to White supremacy and so much blaming the victims of racism as opposed to the real problem, institutionalized racism. 

Wrongly, I was willing to accept that at face value. Now that I see how quick they are to throw shade on the Presidents latest efforts those systemic arguments ring hollow as lame attempts to usurp any influence that the first Black Presidents success would have on young Black men who society simply can't stand. 

Its been six years since a then Senator Obama announced that he was running for President and in a Nation of three-hundred million people only on two occasions have I heard anyone offer that the election of a Black President would empower people like me.

That America wouldn't think the election of a Black President would at least have the partial affect on young Black men that Tiger's ascendency in the world of golf did is naive at best and just plain dumb at worst. 

That so many are nervous that we are seeing the ripple effect or as The Grio called it the Obama Effect is a natural progression and another example of how elections have consequences.  

The issue is two fold; 1)People who have a vested interest in seeing Black men remain on the bottom of the proverbial totem pole will resist any attempt to change that paradigm. 2)We have to simply ignore them in spite of their claims of wanting to help the very people they're shooting coming out the 7-11 and at the gas station parking lot with their music too loud. 

It was Senator Obama while on the campaign trail who offered; "Folks in power are reluctant to give up or even share that power." Most thought he was talking about the Bush administration and the Republicans but he wasn't, he was talking about the Clinton's. 

Its important because we really have no reason to think people like Bloomberg, Soros and Toure' would be against the empowerment of young Black men yet, as the good Senator said, "Folks in power are reluctant..."

What we must do is reject the pessimism and obstructionism of those who will criticize the Presidents efforts to overtly reach out to those most empowered by his very success. Was it necessary? No it really wasn't Black men are empowered by Obama whether he personally reaches out to us or not. 

Yet, by not personally reaching out to Black men those who hate Black men could always sell the lie that Obama doesn't care about us and that murdering Trayvon and Jordan Davis for looking like him is OK. Let's send the message that its not. 

Those are my thoughts as usual I invite yours.

Black Idiot(100% Sellout) Charles M. Blow is WRONG again. His latest hit piece on Blacks to please his Racist bosses at the N.Y. Times centers on President Obama's Brothers Keeper initiative.

The problem that so many Bousgie Black Need2Grows site is that Whites are Superior and their oppression of young Black males is SYSTEMIC and therefore any efforts to get these young Brothers to reject the MYTH that Whites are superior and nobody Black stands a chance against these White Gods, are futile and amount to so much pissing in the wind. 

What these Idiots fail to realize is people like President Obama, Jay-Z and Rick Ross and them are multimillionaires who these Black boys definitely identify with. The fact that they had fathers that their mothers killed off or left their White babies momma's for their Black families back in Kenya only helps their identification with these young Brothers.

While I understand how Racists would fear America's most successful African-American male of the 21st Century and his success as EMPOWERING to a group of Black boys that they have decided are better off shot dead coming out the 7/11 or in that gas station parking lot cause their music's too loud, I think the move to highlight the value and worth of these future Obama's, Jay-Z's and yes Rick Ross's is a far more noble endeavor then killing them.

Whether my cynical view that Black Idiots like Blow and others who are quick to appease Racists that this effort like so many other half-hearted attempts to turn Black boys White-- and thus more acceptable to Racists-- too will fail or if their caution is from a general belief that Whites are superior and anything Blacks might do to empower these boys is doomed from the jump, the reality is validating the existence of Black boys by using successful former Black boys is a valid strategy.

In conclusion, we cannot let White fear, caution or Bill O'Reilly style hate prevent this effort by President Obama to be used as another chance to take him down a peg or put him in his place. The bigger picture is, more future Obama's will be better for all of society even White society and therefore should be our focus.

Those are my thoughts as usual I invite yours.
