Becoming White…

I’ve always heard that being White in America is the best thing ever.  That with it come all of these perks and all of these entitlements.  That White people have the most fun in the whole world.  That your status in society is higher and you can further yourself and career more easily just by being white.  That you won’t get random searches when traveling in the airport.  That you can walk by a car filled with people at night and they won’t lock the doors out of fear.  That everyone will treat you with respect.  That it doesn’t matter that I can’t dance.

I stand before you today, a brown man, who has had his first taste of “Whiteness” and I am here to say that this shit sucks.  This weekend I went to the beach. I applied sunscreen for the first time in my life.  And for the first time in my life I have sun burn (is it one or two words?).  White people, you lied to us all.  For the first time in my life, I stand before you part White (due ONLY to my sunburn) and this feeling sucks.  Being White sucks.  Today, I may be a dark, crispy brown, but inside I feel White, only because on the outside I have some red.  So White people, I feel your pain.  You may have all those perks of “Whiteness” but this sunburn (tried it this way and it didn’t correct me on spell check) crap is painful.  It’s not easy being White, I don’t know how you guys do it….

Game 2

First and foremost, that wasn’t a charge on Kevin Durant.  That WAS a foul on LeBron James.  The referees were inconsistent.  But that’s not why the Thunder lost last night.  They lost because for some reason, they forget how to play basketball in the first quarter of NBA Finals games.  It’s the reverse LeBron.  Granted he came up with a big shot in the 4th last night.  Despite how shitty their first half was, the Thunder still had a shot at the end of the game.  I’d have prefered them to hold for last shot, win or go home scenario, but they decided to go quick (and KD was fouled, it wasn’t called) and try to score.  Didn’t happen. Game ends on free throws.  LBJ showed up again in the Finals, Wade was meh.  He was runnin’ like a guy with a hip injury in that 4th quarter.  MVP of this game goes to Shane “Bank Shot” Battier.  I think that guy just hit ANOTHER 3 pointer.  If I’m the Thunder, I can take losing because of LBJ and Wade, but when these other guys start scoring shit, you’ve gotta clamp down.  Oh and in the battle of horrible coaching, Scotty Brooks, congrats on your LVP award.  I was shouting for the last 8 minutes of the game to have a line up of Ibaka, KD, Westbrook, Harden, and Sefalosha.  That is your best defensive line up and when Fisher isn’t hitting the open 3, Thabo is just as good as an option.  He made the switch to that lineup with about 3 minutes to go, and the Thunder roared back. I have ZERO coaching experience and I knew to do that.  For the most part the stars have shown up.  Harden and Wade much better games, Westbrook and KD still solid, James again with a career high Finals game (clutch shot and 12-12 free throws).  If the Thunder realize they need to start playing at tip off and not in the 2nd quarter, they have a good shot at this.  Either way it looks like this thing is gonna be a good tight series.  Get your popcorn folks.

This was probably an offensive foul on Ibaka. Yep, the officiating is horrible. Call it like you see it zebras! Just be consistent! Don’t ruin this shit David Stern!
