Le racisme americain

Hier, Dimanche le 5 Fevrier, on a assiste a une manifestation typique de racisme americain. A l’occasion du plus grand evenement sportif de l’annee (le “Superbowl”), plusieurs dizaines de gladiateurs millionaires se sont heurtes violemment devant un public assoife de sang. 75% de ces gladiateurs etaient  des Noirs, bien sur. Auparavant, deux femmes noires se sont vues forcees de chanter l’hymne national et un autre chant patriotique devant un public survolte. A la mi-temps, une autre femme noire, accompagnee sur scene de dizaines d’autres Afro-Americaines   agissant sous la contrainte d’au moins un million de dollars de cachet a du se donner en spectable a demi nue sous un jeu violent de lumieres accentuant encore sa nudite et celle de ses co-victimes. Le jeu de lumieres utilise pour mieux exploiter ces pauvres femmes noire s’est revele tellement violent qu’il a fini par couper le courant electrique pour le match proprement dit. Encore une fois, les Noirs sont au premier rang de ceux qui souffrent!

PS desole pour les accents. Cela prend trop de temps.


About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.

    No matter how hard we try, we just don’t get it do we?
    I remember when Rush Limbaugh wanted to buy the St Louis Rams. Here’s what Black Pulitzer Prize winner Karen Hunter said on MSNBC:
    “I can just see the visions of plantation grandeur dancing in his head as we speak. Yeah, it doesn’t make you a racist to want to own a team. But, it does kind of with all his history question his power position over these players who make millions of dollars and his ability to be able to move them around, deny them contracts and do whatever he wants willy-nilly. It’s the ultimate power position to be an owner of an NFL team.”
    Since electing Barack we now live in an almost post racial society. To quote one of his favorite expressions “There’s still work to be done”. Like having the correct number of NFL team owners and coaches. Low or no interest small business loans to minorities to open concession stands could help as well. It’s all about fairness and a level playing field you understand. We need outcomes because opportunity has not been enough to make the fundamental changes necessary to prove we’re over being a racist nation.
    Not sure what that will look like, but then, I just don’t get it.

  2. Bruce: My piece was tongue-in-cheek.

    I know it was, and firing on all cylinders as usual! I enjoyed it even though I had to run it through a poor computer translator.

    We’re on a similar wavelength so all I had to do was color it in a little.
