MTV TAKES ON WHITE MALES

It's good to see someone finally taking on the tough targets. These brave souls risked their jobs and reputations to take on white guys. What balls. Look at me gender appropriating. What nonspecific genitalia that took. These white devils, for so long, lumped people into a box and judged them based on nothing more than the color of their skin. And it's taken generations to rid this country of the awful desire to stereotype people on nothing more than race. I mean, the pure ignorance of those awful white men, and no one else, to judge people on a trait they were born with. It's taken such work to shed this country of racism and there's still a lot of work to go. But once we get those thick headed, white, male idiots to stop looking at the world through the prism of race and gender, this world will be a better place.
Now, as a Disabled American, let me defend these white pigs. Maybe they're actually like every other group of people. Maybe they're just a group of individuals that are being lumped into a box based on their race and the actions of only a portion of that group. Maybe it's wrong to judge them based purely on their race since that's what minorities have been fighting toward for centuries. Maybe if we're too cowardly to make videos like this, scolding women or black men, we shouldn't do it to anyone. But it seems more fun to become everything we thought was wrong about that group. It's easier to talk down to this group because it won't impact our jobs or reputations. It's less complicated to continue dividing people by dividing racial lines further, rather than try to erase them.
I acknowledge the struggles of minority groups in this country. I also don't think it's necessary for the white executives at MTV to coddle these groups. By making this video and not putting out the same for other groups, it does one of two things. Either white men are the only group in this country with flaws and it's okay to target and stereotype them. Or other groups are so weak that it's up to these white MTV execs to coddle and protect them. So either stop being self-hating white people who need to be white knights for everyone else. Or realize that if you don't like when a group marginalizes and talks down to you, maybe it's not how any of us should behave.

UPDATE-They took the original video down so if you didn't get to see it, here it is with some guys commentary mixed in.

PATRIOTS FANS SHOULD DEMAND AN APOLOGY FROM THE NFL AND THE MEDIA...AGAIN

A lot of Patriots fans are looking for blood today. They want the Steelers punished as harshly as the Patriots were for deflated footballs. They want Roethlesberger persecuted, the way the GOAT was. They want a full scale investigation that results in the tarnishing of a franchise and their quarterback, no matter how undeserved it may be. I don't want any of that. I feel that Tom Brady was a martyr for this cause. He accepted the incredible wrong that was done unto him, so no man would have to suffer the same fate. All I want is this. I want the media and the league to get down on their knees, like the filthy whores they are, and admit we were right.
We nailed it Patriots fans. For almost two years we've been called self obsessed, cocky, egomaniacs with an inferiority complex. All because we made one simple point. Deflategate never would've happened with any other team. We heard clowns like Bart Hubbach tell us to just sit back and take it. No oe is out to get us. The league was just doing it's job. But when another historic franchise breaks the exact same rule, it's barely a story an hour later.
A rational thinker would think the media has two options. Go after the Steelers with the same passion with which they went after the Patriots. Have Mark Brunell weep on camera talking about deflated footballs. Have Bill Polian tell us it's a worse offense than steroid use. Line up the idiots who cheered on Goodell for suspending Brady, and have them demand the same of Big Ben. Or your other option. Admit entities like ESPN have never been interested in journalistic integrity. But instead are out to sensationalize what should be non-stories in the interest of grabbing ratings and pushing the agenda of their daddy, the NFL.
The easiest part about meeting my request is, we all already know this. No one thinks the media has any interest in reporting actual news. We live in a world where stories about reality TV stars make headlines on CNN. But as any addict will tell you the first step is admitting you have a problem. So get this monkey off your back. Stop living the lie that ESPN is out to report accurate news and Roger Goodell just has the best interest of the league at heart. The truth will set you free kids. It's okay to gang up against the cool kids. Just admit it's what you're doing.

LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT CHRIS SALE TO THE RED SOX

Boy am I happy today. As a Red Sox fan I'm usually bitching about the team or bashing the manager. But today was a great day. I will say, it's sad the Mayor of Ding Dong City, Travis Shaw has been recalled. But they got good value for him. And the big deal I LOVE. Chris Sale is a true ace. Not the David Price, Ace Light we had to drink last year. Sale is a jersey cutting kook who wants to anchor a staff. With Pretty Ricky Porcello coming off a Cy Young, you can push Price back to the 3 starter and the pressure is off that mental midget. I start Porcello on Opening Day but arguing about which Cy Young candidate to start where is a good place to be. The Mets, Cubs and Giants might stand in the way of the Red Sox being the best staff in baseball. But in the on paper, in the American League, no one is close after this move.
The people against this deal love making every prospect out to be the next whoever. My rule is I don't judge these guys until I watch them, which usually isn't until they hit the majors. The two guys you heard about most were Benintendi and Moncada. When Benintendi got here, he immediately proved he can play. When Moncada got here, he fed into the stereotype that the Cuban players that come over are physically beasts but lack the fundamentals and baseball skills. It's becoming hard to trust a lot of the Cuban born guys. You can twist that into a Donald Trump statement if you'd like, but the evidence is there. It's not a giant sample size but I hate to remind people of what the Red Sox thought Rousney Castillo would be.
Now, I'm purposely being unfair to the kid to prove my point. Moncada was barely up here and didn't have a real defined role when he was. He could end up being great. But I've learned something a lot of baseball fans refuse to acknowledge. The guys you can't miss prospects, usually can miss. From Craig Hanson to Ryan Kalish to Ryan Lavarnway, Garin Cechini, Daniel Bard, Will Middlebrooks, Ruby De La Rosa and on and on. Maybe it's just my weak peepers but you can't find those guys anywhere. All of whom were once can't miss guys. There are many others whose names I couldn't think of. That should tell you all you need to know about them. Chris Sale is an ace. A superstar that will absolutely help the Red Sox win in the playoffs. I don't mind giving up on the dream of a prospect to get that guy here.
