Why Do African Americans March on MLK Day In Seattle?

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

kenya marketLadies and gentlemen thanks for coming to my website to read my posts and my thoughts here on “Music Inner City News Magazine” and “Sports Inner City Online” www.sportsinnercity.com  It means a lot. It really does. One thing that bothers me is MLK Day here in Seattle.

WHY do African Americans get together every year at Garfield High School to talk so called “unity” and to speak about racism and exclusion of African Americans and people of color and more topics concerning people of color? Why? To me every MLK Day here in Seattle gets me very very upset! People then march to downtown. FOR WHAT????

Watching African Americans “trying” to have some type of unity FOR ONE FREAKIN DAY!!! It is a damn joke ladies and gentlemen! Do we as African Americans have unity during the year? I SAY HELL NO!!

Readers AFRICAN AMERICANS HAVE NO UNITY IN SEATTLE as far as I am concerned. African Americans have ZERO mom and pops stores in the Central Area or Rainier Valley. ZERO folks!! Also African Americans have ZERO malls full of businesses like the picture here of a mall on Rainier Ave South here in Seattle FULL OF BUSINESSES RAN BY CITIZENS OF KENYA!!

I ask you readers how come we do not a mall full of businesses ran by African Americans? NOT ONE!! The Asian American community and now East Africans HAVE MALL AFTER MALL AFTER MALL AFTER MALL of businesses. AFRICAN AMERICANS A GRAND TOTAL OF ZERO!! Asians run Viet Wah grocery stores and of course have a community in the INTERNATIONAL DISTRICT/CHINATOWN FULL OF BUSINESSES RAN BY ASIAN-AMERICANS!!

I listened online to the MLK Jr. event at Garfield High here in Seattle. I did NOT hear speakers telling us or asking us African Americans to be small businesses owners like other races. What I did hear is the same ole same ole blaming the white man for our condition.

This is BS!! Truth be told my worse enemies as a business man HAS BEEN MY AFRICAN AMERICAN PEOPLE!! Real talk ladies and gentlemen Uwajimaya-Pics_Outside-Store-Front_IMG_0812real talk for sure. Blaming Trump for everything. Can we blame Trump for African Americans not opening up MALL AFTER MALL of Asian and now East African businesses? HELL NO!! Can we blame Trump for many young poeple buying $5,000 rims to put on a 1989 Monte Carlo?

Buying rims instead of pooling our money like the Asians and East Africans and having a meeting at someone residence to discuss opening up a new business. This is what African Americans as a whole in Seattle like to do. Buy a new car etc instead of opening a new business.

Asians and East Africans have total unity. They do not wait until a special day to unite. Truth be told I have a story to tell but NO AFRICAN AMERICAN has asked me to speak on MLK Jr. Day. I had and still have a dream. I wanted to be a broadcaster when I was a teenager and I worked my ass off to have a name all over the music industry. I have TWO PROGRAMS that air 24-7 all over the west coast and stream online. Now I am trying to blow up my NBA webcast “Sports Inner City/Off The Court”

Hopefully I will obtain a badly needed Angel Investor or major sponsor. I say a prayer everyday. I don’t wait until MLK Jr. to try to act African American for a day and then the next day back to the same. That ain’t me. I can go on and on about the fake MLK Jr. Day here in Seattle.

Where are these so called leaders who show up at MLK Jr. Day every year when ANOTHER young brotha or sista is shot and killed in the streets of Seattle? WHERE IS THE DAMN OUTRAGE??? I don’t see it!! But let a white officer shoot a black person we are outraged. Give me a break readers. This upsets me big time.

So in ending, why do African Americans march on MLK Jr. Day in Seattle? Sorry to say to me it is a joke and total waste of time. I am sure many of you will not agree. That’s ok. I am a big boy.

Bryant Gumbel Puts David Stern On Blast!

ARTICLE FROM thegrio.com (Full story click here)

Veteran broadcaster Bryant Gumbel is fed up with the actions of NBA Commissioner David Stern because of his actions or words in the on going labor talks between the players and the owners over this NBA lockout.

Gumbel had some stong words for Stern. Please read the article in the link above. Bryant basically called Stern a slave master and the NBA players are their slaves. And because of this we may not have a NBA season. Which will be TERRIBLE.

Bryant as a sports fan is pissed and so am I readers. If you check out Stern he can come off as arrogant and uppity. Like “I am Dave Stern and who are you?” Meanwhile days are passing by and we the fans of the NBA have already had two weeks of the season canceled. This is just not good.

Bryant should also put Micheal Jordan on blast for not being in the meetings. MJ in my opinion should get his ass off the golf course walking around with a big cigar and help the players!! You see MJ was a all time great  and is now a owner. No one in the meetings can say that. He can come from both angles. MJ should be in the meetings.

And so should Kobe Bryant, KG, LeBron, Melo, Amerie, Dirk, Jason Terry and other vets of the NBA. Get in the meetings and help Derek Fisher to hammer out a deal so we the fans can enjoy the NBA. We will keep in up to date with the NBA lockout right here.  Gordon Curvey
