The Stacked Deck

It’s hard being a White football player. In a sport that’s becoming increasingly dominated by the worst elements of Black America (they make up 68% of the NFL), Whites are a minority (28%) and can’t even get attention at certain positions.

Running backs, wide receivers, and most defensive roles are seemingly reserved for Blacks only. If you’re a White guy at any of those positions, the odds are stacked against you for getting noticed by the big college programs. No matter how talented you are, you aren’t Black.

That’s an element getting left out of the story behind the murder accusations against a young, college-bound linebacker named Brian Bell. Bell plays a position that is mainly associated with Blacks—albeit, not to the same extent as it is with running backs and corner backs.

The promising athlete out of Georgia was offered a full ride to Florida State—a powerhouse program—until it was snatched away by a crazy conspiracy theory that could only arise and gain credence in the Black community.

Two years ago, a Black teammate of Bell’s somehow managed to trap himself in a wrestling mat and died of asphyxiation. This bizarre incident (quite naturally) prompted speculation that foul play was involved, but after a lengthy investigation it was determined that 17-year-old Kendrick Johnson was solely responsible for getting himself stuck in the gym material. However, this conclusion didn’t satisfy his family and they insisted that their son was killed by a wide-ranging conspiracy of White folks out to get him for an earlier fight with the attention-grabbing Bell.

According to this conspiracy, the video footage that shows Johnson as the only one walking into the gym with the mats was altered. The police didn’t investigate properly because they were in league with the Bell family, which the patriarch of is an FBI agent. Johnson also didn’t stuff himself into the rolled-up mat, he was bludgeoned and then placed in there! Despite all evidence to the contrary, this theory has taken on life in the town of Valdosta, Georgia. And it was enough to force FSU to drop Bell and convince Ebony Magazine to publish libelous attacks on the player and his family.

The Bell family hit back with a $5 million lawsuit against the Black culture pub. But that didn’t stop USA Today from running a frontpage headline on the twisted story. Despite the magazine basically admitting the conspiracy story was false—and even printing a black community leader saying it was not true—they paint the story from the first few lines as a case of a White power structure disenfranchising Blacks. Since Whites represent the majority of city leaders, it’s apparently plausible they were all in cahoots to cover-up the murder. Even though no charges were ever filed and every investigation has determined there was foul play involved, Bell can’t play for the Seminoles because the team wants to avoid bad press—and prominent Black activists turned the screws on administrators to drop their offer to the high school phenom.

Yet, this is the same program that defended Jameis Winston at all cost. Winston, a Heisman Winner and National Championship MVP, was accused of raping a White girl in the Fall of 2013. Charges were never filed because, as the New York Times later uncovered, no serious investigation was launched and the school and local police remained fully behind their star quarterback. He later grabbed headlines for stealing crab legs from a grocery store and chanting “Fuck her in the pussy!” in the university cafeteria. Winston is expected to get selected high in the upcoming NFL Draft.

The two stories reveal quite the contrast in the way White and Black athletes get treated by the press and the institutions they play for. Winston’s position is one that the media is, as Rush Limbaugh said in one of his few lucid moments, “very desirous that a black quarterback do well.” It’s one of the few White-dominated positions, and the quarterback is the leader of his team. Having more Blacks succeed means they can officially establish the sport as theirs. Winston’s indiscretions are less important than his potential success as a Black quarterback, and in the age of rape culture, Black athletes are the only ones who have a shot at fair treatment—even though they seem to be the only ones actually raping co-eds.

Bell, on the other hand, is a victim of another hoax where the White man is the designated villain. His promising career is in doubt, and the linebacker has received numerous death threats and intimidation from the smear campaign directed against him and his family. While schools, like FSU and its rival Florida, take in known criminals and clear-cut thugs all the time, one upstanding White guy gets the shaft thanks to Black pressure.

More importantly, it reveals the unimportance of truth in our society. Blacks are willfully choosing to believe in this absurd story—just like how they believed Michael Brown had his hands up and Trayvon Martin was shot in the back. The media is more than happy to perpetuate these falsehoods and they have found a permanent place in our culture. The narrative of black victimization at the hands of White oppressors always trumps the truth in our society. The narrative of White frat boys raping girls left and right trumps the truth on our college campuses. Poor Brian Bell didn’t even have a chance when he first was accused.

This should be an eye-opening lesson to Identitarians. We know have we the truth on our side, but what we need now are the powerful narratives to spread our ideas. The truth won’t set us free, only a message that will inspire our people to action. It works for every other race, why not us?
