RICHARD WILLIAMS, THE GOAT!

“I’VE NEVER MET HIM, AND I DON’T WANT TO MEET HIM.” EARL WOODS IN SPORTS ILLUSTRATED.

“I DON’T THINK MUCH OF THE WAY HE’S HANDLING HIS DAUGHTERS,” WOODS SAID. “HE HASN’T ALLOWED THEM TO REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL..” AND: “ALL OU HAVE TO DO IS LISTEN TO THEM. YOU CAN HER THE GIRLISH ATTITUDE AND THE GIRLISH CONDUCT. . . . THE GIRLS ARE NOT ON THE ROAD TO MATURITY. THEY’RE IN A TIME WARP.  FEEL SORRY FOR THEM.”

 

WHAT IF HE WASN’T SO FULL OF SELF HATE?

WHAT IF HE WASN’T SUPERIOR IN HIS OWN MIND?

WHAT IF HE WASN’T SO ARROGANT?

WHAT IF HE WASN’T HIGH CLASS?

WHAT IF HE WASN’T SUCH AN EGOIST?

WHTA IF HE WASN’T SO FULL OF VANITY?

WHAT IF HE SAW HIS BROTHER WORTH ELEVATING?

WHAT IF HE SAW HIS BROTHER WORTH POURING INTO?

WHAT IF HE WASN’T ENTITLED?

WHAT IF HE WASN’T SELF RITEOUS?

WHAT IF HE WASN’T SO DISDAINFUL TOWARDS HIS BROTHER?

WHAT IF HE WASN’T OFFENSIVE SOUNDING?

WHAT IF HE WASN’T SO INSOLENT?

WHAT IF HE WASN’T SO ARROGANT TOWARDS HIS BROTHER?

WHAT IF HE SAW HIS BROTHER WORTH EPOSING?

WHAT IF HE SAW HIS BROTHER WORK EMPOWERING?

WHAT IF?

I GUESS THE DIVIDE AND CONQUER WORKED……

IT REALLY DIDN’T.

THIS IS PROOF THAT ONE DOES NOT NEED:

A GOOD NEIGHBORHOOD

HEALTHY LIVING ENVIRONMENTS

PRIVATE LESSONS

ELITE CLUBS

PERSONAL TRAINERS

ALL OTHER THINGS THAT POOR PEOPLE HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO AFFORD WILE SIMULTANEOUSLY BEING TOP, PRODUCING EXCELLENCE AND GREATNESS OF WHICH IS THE REASON OUR CHILDREN ARE PREFERRRED, COVETED, DESIRED, CHOSEN AND EQUIPPED BECAUSE THEY BRING THEIR A GAME, ILLUMINATION, AND DOMINANCE IN WHATEVER SPORT THEY SET OUT TO DO.

HE WAS A TOUGH, HARD, AUTHORITARIAN, NO NONESENSE, CONFIDENT, BOLD, AND DETERMINED FATHER FIRST AND COACH NEXT.

THEY ROSE TO THE OCASSION.

HE WAS EQUIPPING HIS DAUGHTERS TO NOT ONLY FACE BUT CHAMPION 4 “STRIKES” AGAINST THEM BEFORE THEY EVEN BEGAN THEIR PROFESSIONAL CAREER:

VISION THIS DAY HERE, TO OWN THIS WHITE MALE DOMINATED SPORT

ACCEPT THEMSELVES AS WORTHY WOMEN IN THIS SPORT

OWN AND BE PROUD OF BEING AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN IN THIS SPORT

EMBRACE THEIR DARK HUE IN THIS SPORT

AND THEY DID IT ALL 

America created DISTANCE and DOLLARS and attached “ELITE” club to it.
America began to DEFUNDED what came natural to us ( OUR MUSCLES AND MINDS) but when we jumped those UNNECESSARY and racist hurdles; WE ALWAYS proved that poverty wasn’t synonymous with skills, gifts, talents, brilliance, creativity or magic so what do we do and have always done?
WE DEBUNKED THE LIE AND REWROTE OUR NARRATIVE.
In observing the girls enjoying the volleyball court, I look out at how this is said to be a “white ” dominated sport BUT NOT REALLY.
This country create ways for us to be locked out and locked up by rules, laws, codes, policies, mandates and other things.
SAME game but different methods.
CLUB is nice and all but that price tag is mighty steep, yep it is worth it when your child is passionate and not because it is something the parents is initiating.
Yep, I struggle but this sport  is something they not only LIKE, ENJOY, IS GREAT AT PLAYING, HAVE BROUGHT OUT THE LEADERS WTIHIN THEM BUT THEY ENJOY HELPING THE LITTLE SISTERS COME UP AS WELL.
America DEFUND THE HELL OUT OF THE INNER CITY COMMUNITIES and then add DISTANCE AND DOLLARS and just knew inner city poe folks could not and would not be able to compete because once we do IT IS A DONE DEAL.
When we enter ANY room, court and field we come to honestly ENJOY PLAYING THE GAMES but make no mistake about it WE ARE THERE TO WIN and THAT WE DO ESPECIALLY IN THE #89Blocks world.
There is absolutely nothing mediocre, inferior or minute about us inner city dwellers.
When afforded access, opportunity, privilege, inclusion and honor ;we DEBUNK the lie and snatch those false narratives and DEMAND our respect as we rise to the occasion and yes, DOMINATE.

MR. BILL RUSSELL WARNED US AS HE WAS STILL THE GREATEST,
“RACIAL INJUSTICE IS RAMPANT THROUGHOUT EVERY SECTOR OF AMERICA.” AND “AT THAT TIME IT WAS NEVER ACCEPTABLE THAT A BLACK PLAYER WAS THE BEST, THAT DID NOT HAPPEN.”
