Jews don’t tend to play tackle football. We’re more likely to own a sports team than to play for one.
Domestic violence usually means that two morons have been going at each other and the littler one lost. I was not sickened by the video of Ray Rice knocking his fiance out cold. I saw in that clip two idiots bickering with each other and the more fragile one lost.
I am embarrassed as a Jew that “domestic violence” is another hysteria that some left-wing Jews will use to push for more laws, for more government intrusion into our lives, and to fight what is natural, normal and healthy. Asking for consent during every step of courtship is not natural, normal and healthy. It’s not hot. It’s anti-nature.
If left-wing Jewish activists like Anna Isaacson really want to take back the night, they’ll support a racially segregated America. That way women will be safe to walk the streets in white and asian neighborhoods and they’ll be less likely to date and mate with black men (who have a much higher rate of domestic violence and other forms of criminal violence than other groups).
What sane person would expect that a violent and destructive game that primarily employs lower-class blacks, often chewing them up and leaving them crippled for life, will teach America anything good?
The NFL’s domestic violence problem is a black problem. It is overwhelmingly black players who are getting in crime trouble. But the news media narrative is that it is all the fault of the goyim running the NFL such as Roger Goodell.
Sports shows how different races have different gifts. Orientals and Jews, for instance, don’t tend to dominate in the NFL. Blacks do. On the other hand, Orientals and Jews do better than average in school and in post-school earning. Orientals and Jews dominate in tech companies, blacks dominate in basketball, Jews dominate in pornography and gangster rap, Christians dominate in American oil companies, etc.
Steve Sailer writes: “Ray Rice beating up his fiance (now wife) is the worst thing in the history of the world because Rice is a man, but Fox beating up women for money requires our You Go, Girl approbation because Fox is an ex-man.”
“Lex at What Would Tyler Durden Do points out the logical weirdness in the current condemnation of all-world NFL running back Adrian Peterson for beating one of his four year old sons with a stick in a rare attempt at interacting with one of the uncertain but no doubt large number of children he has spawned, while giving a pass to Peterson procreating at random.”
I’m all for leaving the government out of the bedroom, the bathroom, and the shed where you whip your boy with deciduous branches. … But Adrian Peterson isn’t really a dad. He’s a football player who likes to stroke his ego by impregnating women so the world may know the power of his seed. … He didn’t even know he had one kid until that kid was beaten to death. He may have as many as seven kids around the country.
Every summer Peterson hosts a Meet Dad Camp at his estate in Texas where his multitude of bastards get a couple weeks bowing down to the peacock before receiving some Vikings swag and a Greyhound ticket back to their moms. Just because you pay the court ordered child support and you like to brag about your reproductive powers doesn’t make you dad.Charles Barkley says all the black dads in the South whoop their kids like this. Great. … Make the Lorax weep with all the trees you fell just to make the perfect switch. But you can’t lacerate your rent-a-kid the day before he’s packed in the FexEd box and delivered back to his real home. Get some perspective. Adrian Peterson isn’t a throwback disciplinarian. He’s just a pretend dad who likes to hit kids with real sticks.
NEW YORK — Sitting behind a sparkling glass table frosted with the NFL logo, the woman handpicked by Roger Goodell to help save his football league leans back, folds her arms and listens. It’s early October, only a few weeks from the Ray Rice fiasco, and tensions at the league’s Park Avenue headquarters are high. In the next hour, Anna Isaacson will gather input from a cast of experts and finalize the domestic violence and sexual assault seminars the league will soon roll out to all 32 teams.
The subject is complex. The stakes are high. No detail — not even something as seemingly insignificant as the program’s title — can be overlooked. The group started with “Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Education 101.” Boring. In an email chain a day earlier, someone proposed “Setting the Standard.” Isaacson was unimpressed…
The fact that this woman is making these decisions is surprising, to say the least. At 35 years old, with limited prior experience working on domestic violence and sexual assault issues, Isaacson is the most unlikely of NFL saviors. Her athletic career consists of one Little League baseball season. She taught herself the rules of football by reading “Football for Dummies.” She landed her first job at the NFL in 2006 by applying on the league’s website. Yet on Sept. 15, when the league was in crisis as a result of its fumbling the Rice case and other domestic violence accusations involving NFL players, Goodell named Isaacson the league’s first vice president of social responsibility…
At Barnard, she had marched in “Take Back the Night” campaigns to raise awareness for sexual assault and domestic violence. Although she has never been a victim, she said, the issues have “touched my life and, frankly, shaped who I am.”
…Thus far, Isaacson and her team have created the new training sessions every player and league employee will go through and have persuaded league executives to sacrifice more than $10 million in advertising revenue to run a series of anti-domestic violence PSAs during televised games.
…Friel explained to one of the league’s player engagement representatives that they must educate players not to look for signs of no during a sexual encounter, but rather, signs of yes. “And you have to consent to every piece as you move ahead,” Friel told him. “If you consent to kissing, it doesn’t mean you consent to go farther. If you consent to go farther, it doesn’t mean you consent to go all the way. And frankly, if you consent to go all the way, you can change your mind in the middle of that. It’s important to educate the players that this is a healthier place for them to be than waiting for someone to push them off and say no.”
…This, Isaacson knew, would not be a day for the Brooklyn accent. Before the event, Clare Graff, an NFL publicist and close friend, encouraged her to ditch her comfortable Crocs for a pair of heels. Then Graff hinted at a little makeup. “I just asked, ‘Do you have any makeup around?'” Graff said. “It was just for the press conference. I’m not her day-to-day stylist.”
…Isaacson trusts the plan. Although critics might contend she’s absurdly optimistic, she believes the league can become a leader in domestic violence and sexual abuse awareness and prevention.
Different races have different strengths. As the black reverend and former NFL star Reggie White said:
Why did God create us differently? Why did God make me black and you white? Why did God make the next guy Korean and the next guy Asian and the other guy Hispanic? Why did God create the Indians?
Well, it’s interesting to me to know why now. When you look at the black race, black people are very gifted in what we call worship and celebration. A lot of us like to dance, and if you go to black churches, you see people jumping up and down, because they really get into it.
White people were blessed with the gift of structure and organization. You guys do a good job of building businesses and things of that nature and you know how to tap into money pretty much better than a lot of people do around the world.
Hispanics are gifted in family structure. You can see a Hispanic person and they can put 20 or 30 people in one home. They were gifted in the family structure.
When you look at the Asians, the Asian is very gifted in creation, creativity and inventions. If you go to Japan or any Asian country, they can turn a television into a watch. They’re very creative. And you look at the Indians, they have been very gifted in the spirituality.
When you put all of that together, guess what it makes. It forms a complete image of God. God made us different because he was trying to create himself. He was trying to form himself, and then we got kind of knuckleheaded and kind of pushed everything aside.
As a Reggieist (i.e., one who considers human biodiversity both a reality and a net blessing), I’m pleased to point out that IQ tests can’t accurately measure at least one mental faculty in which blacks tend to outperform whites and Asians in real life. Despite lower mean IQ’s, African-Americans are not a race of talentless dullards, but are instead the most charismatic contributors to 20th Century popular culture. What mental factor underlies the black revolutions in music, sport, oratory, dance, and slang? Subjective, improvisatory creativity.
For example, like a lot of NBA stars, Scottie Pippen’s below-market contract, ill-timed trade demands, team-damaging pouts, and numerous child-support obligations imply that when given time to think, he often chooses unwisely. Yet, in the flow of the game, he’s a Talleyrand at real-time decision-making. Leading a fast break, there are no permanent right answers. Even “Pass the ball to Michael Jordan” gets old fast as defenses habituate. Similarly, the NFL running back, the jazz soloist, the preacher, and the rapping DJ all must heed others’ expectations and instantly respond with something a little unexpected. IQ tests — by necessity objective and standardized — can never measure this adequately.
Further, despite his data’s inevitable shortcomings in this regard, Jensen does report that blacks possess particular mental weaknesses and strengths. Among individuals with equal g’s, whites and Asians (like males) are typically stronger in those visual-spatial skills so useful in engineering and many skilled trades. In contrast, blacks (like females) often enjoy better short-term memories and thus can mentally juggle more balls in social situations. (This probably contributes to the black advantage in improvisation). Jensen’s findings confirm my intuition (NR, 4/6/98) that while whites and Asians tend to be less masculine than blacks in physique and personality, they are typically more masculine than blacks in mental abilities. Put bluntly, whites and Asians tend to be nerdier than blacks. How many blacks would sincerely disagree?
