The New Minority

Posted in: Sociology of Sports | Comments (0)

A few years ago I wrote an article about the National Football League “Sexy Play”. This was a story about the NFL using language to promote homosexuality into the NFL. I spoke about how the league was moving in small increments to promote the homosexual agenda into the NFL. Read the article NFL Sexy Play, you will see that I was right in my observation. You see, when you watch television look for the subliminal messages that are being said or viewed. While you men were sleeping here is some of the language that has been subliminally used to promote the Gay Agenda.
• Diva
• Sexy Play
• Man Crush
• Monday Man Crush
You Men have slept so long or been afraid to stand up for truth out of fear of being labeled as a homophobe. The Homosexual community has finally found the poster child to represent them in the National Football League; something that they have been seeking since the early 1970’s. In the early 1970’s the Washington Red Skins had a receiver who was gay. However, I will not mention his name because during his playing career he chose to keep his sexual preference private. However, Michael Sam is the new homosexual poster child that the league was looking for to promote their homosexual agenda. The NFL’s draft coverage of two men kissing on national television was inappropriate. No one thought about the impact that this would have on the children that were watching the NFL Draft. Wow, it’s really screwed up; just a few years ago everyone was in an up roar when Janette Jackson exposed her breast during the Super Bowl Football Half Time Show. As I recall, the network wanted to fine her and made her do a public apology. However, on the other hand two men kissing one another on national TV receive praises around the world. Where are the religious leaders? Where are you Joel Olsteen, T D Jakes, Creflo Dollar, John Hagee, Billy Graham etc. Kurt Warner, you speak about being a devout Christian. You once said that Tim Tebow should tone it down with the praising of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. However, you have not been out spoken about the Michael Sam Homosexual kiss on national TV. Yeah, I know just as I figured it’s all about the money. You guys speak with TWO TONGUES.
Men, it is time for you to BE A MAN and stand up for your children innocents. You have to guard their mind, eyes, ears and touch. You know, it only takes a crack in the structure to create curiosity. Too many times at a young age we have seen children expose to alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, sex and violence which has ruined their lives. My Great Grand Mother always said curiosity killed the cat. So Moms and Dads through your relationship you are the role model in their young lives. No one can do it better than you. I want to thank my Mother for telling me the truth about Man and Woman. I can remember when I was in the fourth grade I was walking home from Coconut Grove Art Festival and there were two men walking together holding hands. All of a sudden they stopped and started rubbing on each other’s back and then they kissed in front of me, I was stunned and confused. I knew that this was not right because immediately my stomach became nervous. I rushed home to tell my mother what I had just seen. She calmed me down and told me that what I saw was wrong. She said that God made Man and Woman for each other. She went on to discuss the male and female reproduction system in how they differ and how they work together in the reproduction of life. As I look back on that pivotal moment in my life I am thankful for her honesty and not making excuses for this life style.
I am quite sure that I will receive a lot of negative comments. However, that’s not my concern. I knew that I could no longer sit back and say nothing about what’s taking place, especially when our children’s minds are subliminally being attacked through cartoons, music, videos and television. You see the final straw was two days ago. While sitting with some young children at a table talking with them. Out of the blue one of the boys decided to grab the other boy’s face with both hands on each jaw and pull the boy towards his lips to kiss. However, with my attentiveness I was able to stop it before it took place. I immediately told the parent what happened. The parent of the aggressor thanked me and spoke to his son about that type of behavior.
Men it is time for you to BE A MAN. Don’t let society force a life style on your children that is not right. Plenty of you Men will come under fire for your heterosexual belief. Don’t fold, together we stand and divided we fall and if you fall sometimes you can’t get up. To my Black Brothers our MANHOOD is under attack from Hollywood. The new subliminal message is Gay is The New Black. You Brothers should not be quite with this labeling. It’s time to boycott these programs that tries to manipulate our Manhood. Remember we the viewers have the power. Let’s make father’s Day BE A MAN DAY and do the things that fathers do with their families. IF WE MEN DO NOT STAND UP WE WILL BE THE MINORITY. So let’s turn the New Minority back to the Majority.

Karoney Oliver how old are you and what school do you attend?
I am 17 years old and I attend Miami Jackson Sr. High School.
Do you have a nick name?
Some people call me Man Man and some call me Macaroni.
How did the name Macaroni come about?
Well,( laughs) the females gave me that name.
How old were you when you started playing organized football?
I was four years old.
What led you into playing the running back position?
I guess that it was natural instincts, I love getting the ball, I love running and no one could catch me.
Do you participate in any other sports?
Yes, I wrestle and I run track. I run the 4×4, 4×1, 2hundred and 1 hundred.
What was your most memorable football game?
The All Dade vs Team Florida was my most memorable.
Why is that?
Because it gave me the opportunity to showcase my talent as an athlete not only against a certain team but a group of individuals that claim to be the best at their position and not only one position but multiple positions.
What was your most fun moment in being a high school student?
Field trips
Where were those field trips?
I visited Miami Metro Zoo that was my favorite field trip. At my old school I took a course in Zoology which led to me forming a love for animals. So once I visited the zoo I was able to see many different animals and learn about their habitat which made a lasting impression on my life.
What other professions would you like to do if football does not work out for you?
I would like to be a Zoologist; I truly have a passion for animals.
How did you feel being selected MPV of the All Dade and Florida All Star Game?
It was a sorrel moment. I couldn’t believe it. It took me a while to realize that I was selected. However, it did sink in. I was proud of myself because of all the hard work and all the effort that I put in it really paid off.
Pedro Oliver father of Karoney, how did you feel about your son being selected as the MVP?
It was a long time coming. Karoney was doubted by coaches because he was said to be too small and a lot of times coaches didn’t want to give him a chance. With the All Dade All-Star Game he was given the opportunity to show everyone that it’s not how big or small you are. If you believe in yourself, put in the good work and good effort it will pay off.
What colleges are currently showing interest in you?
At this time I haven’t received any offers. However, I am optimistic.
What plans have you made if you do not receive any offers?
Yes, I have a plan, it’s to walk onto Auburn University football program and showcase my talents and once I do that they will want to offer me a football scholarship.
How are your grades in school?
My school grades are good.
What are you doing to prepare yourself for the collegiate level?
I work out every day, it doesn’t stop. It’s a constant thing you have to always stay in shape. So when your opportunity arrives you are having nothing to hinder you or slow you down.
Dad (Pedro) what are you doing to increase your sons weight?
We put him on a diet where he is eating 4 to 5 times a day. It’s a balance diet that consist meats, vegetables, fruits and weight gain protein.
My final question to you, who is your role model?
It happens to be my father. He paved the way for me. He showed me no matter how much someone doubts you and no matter how hard they try to make you out to be something that you are not, my father always showed me that you have to counter act that with heart. That’s what drives me; I’ve been doubted all my life. He always told me I have to work hard because there is always someone working as hard as you and sometimes harder than you. So when he told me that I took it upon myself to work harder, because I really want to go to college and play collegiate football. It’s still an ongoing process. He’s an amazing guy and he loves me.
So he’s a great Dad?
Yes he is.
Karoney, Sports Elite wishes you only the best and that you may obtain your dream of playing collegiate football. Also, Sports Elite thanks your father Pedro Oliver for allowing this interview to take place. You truly have a Great Father.

BLACK GOLD

Posted in: Sociology of Sports | Comments (0)

IMG_1449What was once taboo in America and in some cases could cause black men of risk being killed for looking at white women. Today Black male athletes on a larger scale can be seen dating and marrying White women. Black athletes are now a hot commodity to some white women. Could it be because there is an opportunity to strike it rich, the Mandingo physique, the coolness, since of humor, curiosity, black silky skin, intelligence, love making or love at first sight. For whatever reasons, the black male athlete has become the prey not only to white women but to women of the world.
Who is responsible for this merger? Could it be the Pee Wee Football Coach that took the black athletic talent out of the hood to make his team better? Could it be the black parent who put their son in a white program for structure and perks? Could it be the white team mate who invited his black team mate to spin the night at his home before game day? Could it be the white cheerleader who cheers for the team? Could it be the school Pep Rally that displays the athletes on stage? Could it be the local newspaper that followed their athletic careers? Could it be the college recruiter who visited black athletes at their homes and provided scholarships to Southern Universities? Could it be the University of Alabama Head Football Coach Paul Bear Bryant who organize a football game with USC Head Football Coach John McKay in hope of letting the south see how black talented athletes could help and improve their football program? Could it be Branch Rickey, who signed baseball great, Jackie Robinson to the LA Dodgers? Could it be Jim Brown and Rachael Welch Hollywood love scene? Could it be NFL TOTAL ACCESS who surrounds Host Amber Theoharis with former NFL GREATS Jaimie Dukes, Warren Sapp and Darren Sharper?
Could it be Dr. Martin Luther King’s I Have a Dream Speech which spoke about little black boys and girls playing with white boys and girls? Or could it be when Dr. King said don’t judge me by the color of my skin but by the content of my character. Black athletes will continue to thrive in sports and be attractive to women of the world. For whatever reason, black athletes have arrived; there is a new sex symbol and commodity out there on the market.
To the brothers that have found love outside of their race, there is nothing wrong with that; love has no color. What I would like to see that you guys don’t forget where you came from. Give back to your childhood neighborhoods, schools, community centers and churches. Because it was this environment that provided you with your first love in sports and accepted you as you are.

It’s In The Blood

Posted in: SPORTSELITE - Youth | Comments (0)

IMG_1852At the age of three, Mark Wynn had a love for sports. I can recall Mark on Christmas morning on the front lawn with his Christmas football, raising his hand in the air and pretending to blow a whistle. As he blew his make believe whistle, he ran towards the football and kicked it very well. I was amazed with his foot and eye coordination. He then picked up the football and ran with it as if he was being pursued by an opponent. Man, I thought that this little kid was extremely fast to be so young. After he became bored with his football, he put it aside and started to play with his T Ball set. Once again I was impressed with this little kid, his hand and eye coordination was amazing. Without any assistance Mark was able to hit the T Ball with great power. Not only did he hit the T Ball well, but he was able to hit the ball from both sides of the Batting T without losing any power. At such a young age he displayed the physical mechanics of a seven year old boy.

As Mark continued to grow he developed a love for basketball. Around the age of 8 he could be seen in the driveway dribbling his basketball and doing a cross over with ease. For such a little guy he could shoot and dribble the basketball very well. Mark’s favorite part of his home was the driveway. That was where his basketball goal was and where he could be seen shooting hoops and working on his 3 point shot. There was not a day that passed that Mark wasn’t outside shooting hoops. The weekends were his favorite. This was the time that his cousins would come down to Coconut Grove to visit the family house. In his mother’s family there were 15 siblings, 9 girls and 6 boys. So when it came to basketball he could be seen competing with and against his older cousins, sometimes against his uncles. These games between Mark and his cousins were very competitive and sometime ended with tears being shed. However, the competition was welcomed. It was an opportunity to improve his skills. Along the way, he developed some swagger and some trash talking. Hey, it’s Miami, that’s what we do. He even impressed Dwayne Wade, who he once met during a Summer Basketball Camp.

Prior to Mark playing basketball he also played Pop Warner Football. His father Mark Sr. kept him involved in playing sports year round. Playing football Mark performed at a high level. One could tell that this kid had the “IT” FACTOR. He could play any of the skill positions. His little stature didn’t keep him from challenging his opponent on offense or defense. He played with a lot of heart and took that mindset with him to Coral Gables Sr. High School.

IMG_1869In his 2013 senior football season Mark led the Cavaliers team with 9 interceptions playing Free Safety and broke Coach Billy Rolle’s record. He also broke NFL Great, Neal Colzie’s interception record that stood for 49 years at Coral Gables Sr. High School. He is a game changer. With his on the field leadership skills he was able to help his team win their district and proceed deep into the playoffs. The season may be over for some players however Mark will continue to play football. Mark has been chosen to play in the All Dade All-star Football Game.
As Mark prepares for the All-Star game, he is currently playing Varsity Basketball and once the season ends he will then go into Track and Field where he will compete at a high level. If he had the time, he would also play baseball and would play it well. Baseball was his grandfather Sidney Wynn’s first love. Sidney played Professional Baseball in the Black Negro League. Sidney Wynn was a great athlete that excelled in many sports. I guess that you could say that it’s in the blood.

As many young athletes dream of making it big as a professional, Mark continues his dream as well. He understands that he must remain focus and continue to make smart decisions. Mark believes that if he stays on the straight and narrow path that he is destined to achieve his goal as a professional athlete. He has managed to have a variety of colleges take notice of his talent. To name a few, Northern Illinois, Marshall, U CONN, Ole Miss, Boston College, UCF,USF,FIU, Bethune Cookman, and Temple University. Whichever school that provides Mark with a scholarship will be fortunate to have a game changer on their team.

SO WHAT ABOUT YOU

Posted in: Spiritual Inspiration | Comments (0)

What do you want to do with your life? What are your dreams? If you could write your best life story today, what would it say?

Is your first reaction to hesitate? Perhaps you most often see and describe yourself in terms of past experiences or present limitations. Perhaps you see yourself more in terms of losing or just surviving rather than fulfilling your dreams.
If you’ve packed away your dreams, dare to unpack them today. It’s time to enlarge your vision. Dare to ask God to rekindle those dreams in your heart and mind. He wants to do big things and new things in your life. God wants us to be constantly increasing, to be rising to new heights. He wants to pour out “His far and beyond favor” on you (Ephesians2:7).

Quite your heart and receive God’s Word: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).

Friend, if you will get in agreement with God, this can be the greatest time of your life. With God on your side you can’t possibly lose. He can make a way when it looks as though there is none. He can open doors that no man can shut. He can cause you to be at the right place, at the right time. He can supernaturally turn your dreams into reality.

NEVER ALLOW YOUR WRONG THINKING TO KEEP YOU FROM GOD’S BEST.
