BLACK MEN KNOW MORE ABOUT THE (NFL) NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE THAN NEGRO FIELD LABORERS OF THE 1800S
The Civil Writer Magazine
As we kick off football season, I’d like to argue that the National Football League have more relevance to African Americans than any other sports other than NBA Basketball. When any sport is invoked young Black males can spat off statistics like a professional TV sportscaster in front of a teleprompter. From names, positions and player stats. When it comes down to knowing family genealogical information they give you a look like a Deer in the window of a taxidermist shop. Young Black males and females are raised with no familial ancestral history. Whatever they know about family goes back to the 40s that is spotty at best with great grandparents who can be just as clueless because they were born in the 1940s where the priority was jobs and money and not necessarily ancestry. Young Black males cannot be completely at fault. To know about family should be a genetic predisposition that increases the likelihood of developing a genetic bonding to the past. But in today's society there is so many distractions for example money that has destroyed the memories of the past.
I am hard on the Black males but I really should make note of how our Black families are really at fault with family history, being they are led to know more about Jesus's genealogy than their own. If they are so concern with Jesus's genealogy then find your own family and pass it on.
