Randy Moss Run Out Of The NFL

By Walter L. Hilliard III

“When you do a good job, you want to feel like you’re appreciated.  I don’t feel like I’m appreciated.”

This is what Randi Moss told the media.  He simply spoke his mind and the media crucified him for it.

But retire?  I think he should have kept fighting, and proved his critics wrong.

Moss, the NFL leader in touchdown catches, retired today.  How did this happen?  Why did this happen?

Well, you’ll never hear the truth if you listen to the sports media because they’re the one’s who created Moss’s negative image, leading the best teams, teams Moss wanted to play for, to not give him a shot.  And when he did get chances his last couple of years, teams did not throw to him much or try to put him in a position to succeed because they had a negative perception of him as being arrogant and selfish.

Sure, I remember acting Moss acting like he was wiping his behind against the goal post in Green Bay after fans ridiculed him, like so many around the league did, mainly because the media always depicted him negatively.

Why would Moss, or other controversial Black athletes, do such things?  Because they feel cornered and abused by the mainstream media and the fans that feed off of the negative stories about them.  And what most people don’t understand is that Black men have been abused so much that they, or many, are often going to get to a point where they feel they have to strike back.  The are very aware of the injustice that occurs on a nightly basis when mostly White sports personalities belittle them and characterize them as incompetent, selfish, troublemakers, and criminals.

Michael Irvin, one of the NFL’s biggest House Negroes — said Moss should beg to get into the NFL’s Hall of Fame, and tell them he was just a “young, dumb kid.”

You see, this is what happens when you let most of the NFL’s Black players talk to the mainstream TV audience — they say all the things the mainstream media likes to hear:  “Weez Black folk is sooooooooooooo grateful, Mista Boss Man, that you would allow us to play in your league.  Weez just don’t know how to thank ya, sirrr, and if you allow me to — I will chastise dem Black field Negroes that don’t appreciate all you do fo’ us, sirrr, every chance I gits.”

Boss Man:  Thans, Mike.  You’re such a good boy!

I hope Moss returns one day, but not until the Uncle Tom, butt-kissing, go-along-to-get-along Black personalities in the media start standing up to their White counterparts and challenging them when they stereotype and assassinate the characters of Black athletes.

But I’m sure that will be a cold day in h#% before that happens.

Black people, never send a boy to do a man’s job.

Good luck, Randi!
