Gayton McKenzie on his uncontrollable desire to want to make money and how he made it happen. KICKSTART:  Let’s start from the beginning, who is Gayton, where was he born, what kind of childhood did he have and what aspirations did you have as a young boy growing up? KICKSTART: What is a hustler and why did you feel the need to address him directly and guide and shape his ambition? Nombuso: Why do you think a lot of hard working entrepreneurs cannot reach your level of success despite putting in so much effort? Nombuso: In your book, you are quoted as saying, “No matter how good your plan is, most people will not give money to a young business person- not while there are so many tried and tested old dogs out there.
When it comes to investing, do you follow the trend of also investing in tried and tested old dogs, or do you have plans of becoming a trailblazer in this respect by investing in a youth-owned business? Gayton: The answer to the first part of your question is that, it breaks my heart truly to see young people when they meet me to say we need funding when I know they won’t get funding because by funding young people you take a risk while there are established businesses that will certainly give you a return.
Nombuso: Here is another quotes from your book that I’d like to discuss with you, it says , “Don’t have the silly belief that you have to respond to every attack, every bit of gossip about you, every rumour or worst of all, every tweet you come across about you on anything and everything. Nombuso: On 3 Talk, a viewer tweeted that there was a mine that almost collapsed because its CEO was an ex-convict who couldn’t speak English and that you are a disgrace to society.
Nombuso: We hold you in high regard and unlike other journalists from the other publications whom we won’t mention now, who continue to speculate on why ZAR Cape Town and Joburg was closed, we actually know why because it’s all in the book.  Why did you feel the need to tell it all?
Gayton: The problem that we have in this country is that there’s very few people that would call in like you did and that’s why I was willing to talk to KICKSTART.
Nombuso: Your honesty is actually quite encouraging because we are a young company that’s open to learning. I see people like yourselves opening businesses, very good businesses and sometimes I see them going nowhere, because you all want to be prim and proper about your businesses. On that captivating note, we’ve come to the end of part one of this eye-opening interview with the legendary Mr.
Till next time, remember to keep knocking on those doors and if they won’t let you in, you should consider using the window to get in.
A A LARGE rose-tree stood near the entrance of the garden: the roses growing on it were white, but there were three gardeners at it, busily painting them red. The Queen turned crimson with fury, and, after glaring at her for a moment like a wild beast, screamed "Off with her head! The soldiers were silent, and looked at Alice, as the question was evidently meant for her.
Alice thought she might as well go back and see how the game was going on, as she heard the Queen's voice in the distance, screaming with passion.
The hedgehog was engaged in a fight with another hedgehog, which seemed to Alice an excellent opportunity for croqueting one of them with the other: the only difficulty was, that her flamingo was gone across to the other side of the garden, where Alice could see it trying in a helpless sort of way to fly up into one of the trees. The moment Alice appeared, she was appealed to by all three to settle the question, and they repeated their arguments to her, though, as they all spoke at once, she found it very hard indeed to make out exactly what they said.
The executioner's argument was, that you couldn't cut off a head unless there was a body to cut it off from: that he had never had to do such a thing before, and he wasn't going to begin at his time of life. The King's argument was, that anything that had a head could be beheaded, and that you weren't to talk nonsense. The Queen's argument was, that if something wasn't done about it in less than no time, she'd have everybody executed all round. The Cat's head began fading away the moment he was gone, and by the time he had come back with the Duchess, it had entirely disappeared; so the King and the executioner ran wildly up and down looking for it, while the rest of the party went back to the game.
OU can't think how glad I am to see you again, you dear old thing!" said the Duchess, as she tucked her arm affectionately into Alice's, and they walked off together. Alice was very glad to find her in such a pleasant temper, and thought to herself that perhaps it was only the pepper that had made her so savage when they met in the kitchen. She had quite forgotten the Duchess by this time, and was a little startled when she heard her voice close to her ear. The other guests had taken advantage of the Queen's absence, and were resting in the shade: however, the moment they saw her, they hurried back to the game, the Queen merely remarking that a moment's delay would cost them their lives. They had not gone far before they saw the Mock Turtle in the distance, sitting sad and lonely on a little ledge of rock, and, as they came nearer, Alice could hear him sighing as if his heart would break. So they went up to the Mock Turtle, who looked at them with large eyes full of tears, but said nothing.
This was quite a new idea to Alice, and she thought over it a little before she made her next remark. So Alice began telling them her adventures from the time when she first saw the White Rabbit.
Alice said nothing; she had sat down with her face in her hands, wondering if anything would ever happen in a natural way again. The judge, by the way, was the King; and as he wore his crown over the wig, he did not look at all comfortable, and it was certainly not becoming. The Hatter looked at the March Hare, who had followed him into the court, arm-in-arm with the Dormouse.
This did not seem to encourage the witness at all: he kept shifting from one foot to the other, looking uneasily at the Queen, and in his confusion he bit a large piece out of his teacup instead of the bread-and-butter.
Here one of the guinea-pigs cheered, and was immediately suppressed by the officers of the court. For some minutes the whole court was in confusion, getting the Dormouse turned out, and, by the time they had settled down again, the cook had disappeared.
ERE!" cried Alice, quite forgetting in the flurry of the moment how large she had grown in the last few minutes, and she jumped up in such a hurry that she tipped over the jury-box with the edge of her skirt, upsetting all the jurymen on to the heads of the crowd below, and there they lay sprawling about, reminding her very much of a globe of gold-fish she had accidentally upset the week before.
Alice looked at the jury-box, and saw that, in her haste, she had put the Lizard in head downwards, and the poor little thing was waving its tail about in a melancholy way, being quite unable to move. As soon as the jury had a little recovered from the shock of being upset, and their slates and pencils had been found and handed back to them, they set to work very diligently to write out a history of the accident, all except the Lizard, who seemed too much overcome to do anything but sit with its mouth open, gazing up into the roof of the court. There was a general clapping of hands at this: it was the first really clever thing the King had said that day. At this the whole pack rose up into the air, and came flying down upon her: she gave a little scream, half of fright and half of anger, and tried to beat them off, and found herself lying on the bank, with her head in the lap of her sister, who was gently brushing away some dead leaves that had fluttered down from the trees upon her face. First, she dreamed of little Alice herself, and once again the tiny hands were clasped upon her knee, and the bright eager eyes were looking up into hersa€”she could hear the very tones of her voice, and see that queer little toss of her head to keep back the wandering hair that would always get into her eyesa€”and still as she listened, or seemed to listen, the whole place around her became alive with the strange creatures of her little sister's dream. So she sat on with closed eyes, and half believed herself in Wonderland, though she knew she had but to open them again, and all would change to dull realitya€”the grass would be only rustling in the wind, and the pool rippling to the waving of the reedsa€”the rattling teacups would change to the tinkling sheep-bells, and the Queen's shrill cries to the voice of the shepherd boya€”and the sneeze of the baby, the shriek of the Gryphon, and all the other queer noises, would change (she knew) to the confused clamour of the busy farm-yarda€”while the lowing of the cattle in the distance would take the place of the Mock Turtle's heavy sobs. This interview  takes an in-depth look at the  lessons to be learned from his latest book, A Hustlers Bible, while at the same time sharing with us the process he followed in escaping his shady past to become one of SA’s most influential and powerful entrepreneurs of our time. It is really one of a kind.  Why do you think the book is such a huge success despite you having so many haters?
A hustlers bible, I think, we have sat around the table with the staff and thought; ‘why is this book just doing so well’.
How did you arrive at this conclusion because when somebody verbally attacks you, one’s first instinct is to fight back and put them in their place?
If people say ZAR Cape Town is closed down, you can go to ZAR in Cape Town we are doing row upon row in business.
Alice thought this a very curious thing, and she went nearer to watch them, and just as she came up to them she heard one of them say "Look out now, Five! The three soldiers wandered about for a minute or two, looking for them, and then quietly marched off after the others. Alice looked up, and there stood the Queen in front of them, with her arms folded, frowning like a thunderstorm.
Alice did not quite like the look of the creature, but on the whole she thought it would be quite as safe to stay with it as to go after that savage Queen: so she waited.
She was a little nervous about it just at first, the two creatures got so close to her, one on each side, and opened their eyes and mouths so very wide, but she gained courage as she went on. This, of course, Alice could not stand, and she went round the court and got behind him, and very soon found an opportunity of taking it away.
She carried the pepper-box in her hand, and Alice guessed who it was, even before she got into the court, by the way the people near the door began sneezing all at once.
Choices were there for us, like being a policeman or a nurse but that was not even a consideration in my mind.
Let me give you an example; people used to love Michael Jackson, then they hated Michael Jackson, then they loved Michael Jackson again, now what does that tell you?
There are many books out there like Rich Dad, Poor Dad and The Secret that people look at for inspiration and as good and well written as these books are, they are written for the American public.
Anybody that attacks you on twitter, the first thing you do, you need go check how many followers they have.
Can you please address this issue again because we feel that it must be preached over and over until people get that English is not a sign of intelligence or a pre-determiner to wealth creation. You’re a hustler, you must make a plan.  You can’t make money, part-time, you can’t achieve success part-time. Even when the child poohs, she’s like ‘ooh so much pooh today.’ She doesn’t abandon the child because of the pooh problem. If you are interested in learning more about hustling to win, be sure to join us for the 2nd and 3rd part of Gayton’s heart-to-heart conversation with KICKSTART where he lays all of his success cards on the table, for us to learn from them and prosper like him. So you see, Miss, we're doing our best, afore she comes, toa€”a€”" At this moment, Five, who had been anxiously looking across the garden, called out "The Queen! Next came the guests, mostly Kings and Queens, and among them Alice recognised the White Rabbit: it was talking in a hurried, nervous manner, smiling at everything that was said, and went by without noticing her. The Cat seemed to think that there was enough of it now in sight, and no more of it appeared.
Then againa€”'before she had this fita€”' you never had fits, my dear, I think?" he said to the Queen. A But he promised me on his returnA back to the United States I would be the first media personality to interview him in New York City.A  I never will forget how confident he was that he would return victorious. I wasn’t going to be a policeman or a nurse or a teacher because those careers are limiting, money-wise.
If it’s those ones with eight followers, six followers, they want to become relevant with you.
For me, when you are just starting out, you should view your business is like it is a baby. Then followed the Knave of Hearts, carrying the King's crown on a crimson velvet cushion; and last of all this grand procession, came THE KING AND QUEEN OF HEARTS. When I grew up all I wanted money, I had an uncontrollable love for it and that is why I fell into crime. Hustlers do fail, but if a hustler falls down 330 times, only a hustler will stand up 331 times. People don’t sue the wrong people; they sue people who are successful because they want your money. It is going to cry, nag, and demand all your attention and it is also going to take your money.
There are some people who hate Nelson Mandela; there are some people who hate Oprah Winfrey. Now I know my uncle at home, in fact, every black person has a drunk uncle that knows how to speak English very well. When we started out, Kenny was managing me and we had to go give a speech to three hundred of the top business people in Joburg.
You wouldn’t go on leave from looking after your baby because it would suffer because it depends on you. I felt the need to speak out about being a hustler because what I’d  seen rich people do, in this country and everywhere else, is that they put you in a box and they say to you; ‘if you want to be rich these are three steps you have to follow. Some snakes are just haters, who are harmless and would make a comment along the lines of, ‘Aah G, why are you wearing two watches, that is so dumb’. We rocked up there with a Ferrari that we’d borrowed from a car and business cards we’d just printed at the very last minute. Be with it, never leave it, attend to it, help it to grow, fight for it and lastly if need be never hesitate to turn the world upside-down just to be make sure that your babe has all that it needs to flourish.


You have to go to university, you have to find a job and then you work until you are 65 and then you get a pension’ and you can’t even dream of drive a sports car.
I don’t really care what people say about me, the only people I care about are the people who care about me.
Given that you run the risk of that help never coming, you can wait your whole life for help.
However the hotel had 13 floors and they wanted to extend it to 21 floors and we did not want to be in the middle of the floors. So A Hustler’s Bible speaks to them, it speaks to township living, it says to our people; here is a man that comes from minus zero but still managed to prosper. They came to us and said guys we going to move you and we said well it’s going to cost you a whole lot of money.
Particularly for many black people who couldn’t go to study but they had to pay for their sibling’s studies, there is no reason why he should now sit and say all right, my sibling will make it and I will not make it. So this book speaks to them, it speaks to township living, it says to people; you know what, here is a man that comes from minus zero. You can’t wait until you are 60 and have a heap of unutilized business plans and complain that nobody wanted to help you.
This is not enough to make me leave my mission of bettering myself to respond to a silly tweet.
Even the guy who went to university and studied in a particular direction should not feel like they can’t make something great out of their lives without opportunities in that particular direction. They think you have to be very well versed in English to be successful and that is just rubbish. A hustler is someone that does something about that, who makes a plan when there is no plan, who forms a path where there is no path. Where I can do good, I do good, but I’m not going to live my life worried about people that should actually be worried about their own lives. But if, for example, somebody goes to your editor and fellow worker and says something negative about you, now that is a different matter because this person is now playing with your bread and butter. People would say that ‘How could he be in charge of a mine when he doesn’t speak like the queen?’ I don’t need to speak like the queen.
And believe me when I say that with A Hustlers Bible there are a lot of people that hate me but they still go out and buy the book.
If I waited for help I would still be waiting however I realized very quickly that nobody is going to give me funding. That gives you enough reason to respond and say ‘hey wait up, I heard you said this and that, and what you said was not true.’ Now those are things you respond to, to defend your character and integrity.
So the things you have been reading aren’t true, it’s mostly tabloid hearsay, unlike KICKSTART, the other publications do not bother to call us.  They said ‘ZAR Cape Town is closed’ yet it’s not closed. That is a very good thing because the book is not about Gayton McKenzie being the person that my haters perceive me to be. And believe me when I say that, there are a lot of people who hates me but, when it comes to A Hustler’s Bible they still go out and buy the book. This year, Kenny, my business partner, has held a party at ZAR in Cape Town, not on the street, in the club. Which is a very good decision because the book is not Gayton McKenzie; it is two totally different entities. Some people think that if you do not have money you are unsuccessful; we need to change that mindset. I just want to tell people the dog is not dead yet, don’t give up no matter what, go out there and make it. At the end of the day to be honest with you, it doesn’t bother me, because I know who I am. A My second week at the course I got in early and became bored while waiting for my homeboys. We have these beliefs that we want to force other people to believe in but I know better because I look at those beliefs and I side step aside and I do the total opposite.
People ask me ‘why do you wear a cap when you go into a board meeting?’ I do it because I can.
I went to the restaurant where I was going to meet him later and I made it my mission to study the menu because I had never been to the restaurant before.  So I asked the waiter, ‘so how do I pronounce this, what is this, what is that for?’ and he taught me stuff I never knew.
A My teammates and coaches were often challenged by my "Just give me the ball and get the hell out of my way" attitude. A I was not the best athlete on the field or on the court, but I thought I was.A When the game was on the line I wanted the ball in my hands.
I had five other guys that came in, one by one and they’d wave at me with great excitement from a distance. People want you to follow the same rules that have been written by people that have already made their money; the truth is that they don’t want you to make money. We waste our time on trivial stuff, instead of making money, building your life and helping other people, we are now busy investigating who is gossiping about us. If you have been knocking on doors that won’t open, it’s time to go around and go to the windows. A A It was a hot evening and the constant in and out of the woods was not a pleasant undertaking. When your editor was telling me that even government officials are not helping her, I realised that it was because she is speaking to the apes; it’s time that she goes to Tarzan. Hijack Tarzan, that being the MEC or whoever who has the real authority, at a function and just tell them who you are and that you are struggling. What I thought would be a nine-hole outing turned into eighteen holes and a White House visit and a Presidential appointment in 1969. General William Rogers, Hattie, President Nixon and HBA Petey and I would become great friends and in 1965 we would meet again. A The United Planning Organization a self-help community organization was hiring "Neighborhood Workers." A They hired three, me, Petey and H. A Two years later Rap would be named Chairman of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee.
A I would become a Roving Leader (Youth Gang Task Force) for the DC Recreation Department and Petey would find his new home in radio at WOL.
A Three UPO "Neighborhood Workers" would go on to establish their own independent idenities. A Petey would win 2 Emmy Awards and in 2007 there was a feeble attempt to do his life story on the big screen. He is now in jail serving a life sentence for the murder of a black Deputy Sherrif in Fulton County, Georgia. Brian McIntyre.A  He was sitting almost alone and there was no one waiting in line (compared to today's media circus). A  I looked down and notice that all the white media were seated on one side of half-court and all the blacks were seated on the other side of the half-court line. He stepped in front of me and said "I got it."A It would be the start of the 4th quarter that Mark returned to the press table table and apologize for his unprofessional actions. A There were other mistakes like someone thought a black Judy Holland was VP material---far from it. A It took a minute but in the meantime, he was making an effort to bring about change in his own way.
A But according veteran (32 years) sports writer Bill Rhoden of the New York Times, progress in sports media pressrooms around the country are on a slow boat to China.A His recent appearance on the widely acclaimed television news show Meet the Press, he said, "the NBA, NFL and MLB are still dragging their feet. Media pressrooms at Deadline are still the last plantations.A A Pioneering broadcaster and former NBA CBS basketball analyst Sonny Hill and now a sports talk show host on WIP Radio in Philadelphia said, "I am not surprised by Rhoden's statement, very little has changed in media pressrooms. A One of the problems there is no networking among blacks who have moved it up the ladder." A That is an understatement. A  The copy rights for Inside Sports is own by News Week Magazine and it is own by the Washington Post. A A First, there was a a problem with the PR Men from hell, Brian Sereno and Matt Williams. A A It was brought to my attention that Sereno was disrespecting the ladies of The Roundball Report. A The meeting was set before a Wizard's game in the press louge but Scott Hall was the lead man. A He listened and we disagreed on some points but when we walked away from the table we were on the same page.
A The community and everyone in it was a friend, the old and the young, the black and the white and the healthy and the lame.
A I was honored to speak at his retirement held at the arena just before the Bullets moved to Washington and changed their name to the Wizards.A Denny Gordon was in ticket sales and it seem like he knew everyone who brought a ticket.
A He was made the scapegoat after being sold out by his assisstant coach Bernie Bickerstaff and others.
A The meeting revolved around a charity all-star game scheduled for the Bahamas, the island home of NBA star Mycal Thompson. A Magic Johnson was one of All-Stars participating.A Representatives from the NBA included VP Ron Thorne, Legal Counsel Gary Bettman and head of security Horace Balmer. A A Gary Bettman is the Commissioner of the NHL, Thorne is somewhere lurking in the NBA, Balmer has since retired and Magic is a role model for Black America? A A The short lived existence of basketball legend Michael Jordan as a Wizard's player and Executive in the front office. A After the story broke he and several teammates made light of it during introductions of a game. A He was eventually suspended for most of the 2009a€“10 season.A The thing that I find disturbing about this Donald Sterling charade is that folks are acting like they were surprised by his rants against blacks. A A I also notice the same "Old faces and voices" are called on to respond to the racist acts by men like Sterling---when they are a part of the problem . A He and Sterling were good friends because "Birds of a feather flock together." A  Check Magic's history out and you will discover the two have a lot in common. A Magic's claim to be a minority owner of the LA Dodgers is another sham (token black face). James Brown (CBS Sports) another mis-guilded brother claiming to be a minority baseball owner and an expert on racism.
A He did finally admit on the late George Michael Show (Sports Machine) "I have no say in making baseball decisions as a minority owner." A His role as a minority owner is to be paraded out on Opening Day as the black face to read the starting line-ups.
A A This is the same Michael Wilbon that I had at least two recent conversations about the use of the N word as a term of endearment. A I have to give him credit, he will at least talk to me face to face and not behind my back.
A I tried to explain that his rationale that his grandfather's use the word as a term of endearment does not make it right today. A I told him he should not go on national television saying it is okay to use the N word among friends and family. A It gives bigots like Donald Sterling the Green Light to do the same among his friends and family.
A Plus, Michael told me he was not going to appear on the ESPN Show Outside the Lines because the white host had no horse in the race!
A A I wish that Magic, James, Michael and the rest of the media experts would defer to black men like Hank Aaron, Dr. A But they wear the battle scars and have been on the front lines of the civil rights movement in real life and in the sports arenas of America.
A In other words, they have been there and done that.A I guess that is wishful thinking, especially when everyone wants to be an expert on television.
A In the meantime, they don't know their asses from a hole in the ground but the beat goes on and on. A Auerbach would go a step further in the 1966-67 NBA season, when he stepped A down after winning nine titles in 11 years, and made Bill Russell player-coach. A A trailblazers, RED AND DOTIE AUERBACHi»? ON INSIDE SPORTSA Russell would eventually be the first black to win an NBA championship.


A There are far too many crying "Foul" and playing the victims in this charade, to include some NBA owners.A Let me start with my homeboy, the great Elgin Baylor who was the Clippers GM for over 2 decades. His teams were perennial losers on the court and in attendance, but he picked up his check every two weeks and kept his mouth shut. A A In his deposition, Elgin spoke about what he called Sterling's 'plantation mentality,' alleging the owner in the late 1990s rejected a coaching candidate, Jim Brewer, because of race. A Talking about an organization needing a change of name and a face-lift---meet Leon Jenkins.A Jenkins seen above at a press conference trying to explain why the li»?ocal branch was honoring Sterling during the 100th Anniversary of the organization next month.
A A He explained the previous award had been approved by the man he replaced and he just went along to get along. A A Sterling won't be the first to sleep black and think white when it comes to sex, politics and money.
Slave owners lived by the credo and in modern day history there was the late Senator Strom Thurmond. A Nike NBA rep John Phillips and I met with VP Rod Thorn, League Counsel Gary Bettman and Head of League Security, Horace Balmer. A The meeting centered around whether Magic Johnson, Mycal Thompson and a group of NBA All-Stars would be allowed to travel to the Bahamas for a charity basketball game without league approval.
The game had been played in the Bahamas the previous year without incident or controversy.A It was obvious that there was a power-play being made by the league office to cancel the game. Thorn open the meeting by asking who was going to be responsible if one of the players was hurt during the game?
A Magic suggested that the topic of conversation just might be centered around an injury to a player. I tried to explain that playing the game was no different then one of the players participating in a pick-up game on a New York City playground in the off season. A What is this some kind of plantation?"A The room went silent and Horace Balmer the only other black in the room just shook his head and seem to be lost for words. A Thorn called off the discussion and promised to get back to us but he never did.A In the meantime, Magic Johnson disappeared and changed his number. A Mycal was a class act but his hands were tied when Magic decided to do his Houdini act.A Gary Bettman now runs the NHL, Ron Thorn is still in the NBA somewhere calling the shots, Horace Balmer has since retired and Magic is the face (black) in the middle of the Donald Sterling charade.
A When all is said and done, the real victim despite all of her baggage is the girlfriend (The Whistle Blower) V.
A NBA Commissioner Adam Silver during his annoucement as it related to the punishment of Donald Sterling apologize to black NBA pioneers Earl Lloyd, Chuck Cooper and Magic Johnson. A He reminds me of the controversial Celebrity Chef Paula Deen who alledgely use The N word to describe her love for black folks. A  How should we expect her to know if she has never walked in our shoes ?A  When it is a part of your DNA it is difficult to rid yourself of the gene.A  A One morning I was watching Ms.
This award was longed overdue and I wonder why it took the NAACP so long to finally recognized Mr. Belafonte in accepting the award asked, "Where are today's black leaders?A  Our children's blood is still running in our streets---there is work still to be done. The coalition stated it will urge President Obama to mention an urban jobs plan in his state of the Union speech on February 12th----Good luck! Ben Carson of John Hopkins University Hospital.A  His prayer and message was centered around health care, the economy, American debt, and tax reform, thus taking dead aim at President Obama's platform for the nation. Carson spend 25 minutes talking about the nation's ills and solutions with the President sitting less than 5 feet from him.A  When all was said and done, President Obama was not looking so Presidential! Carson set the record straight from the very beginning.A  He made it clear he was not taking any wooden nickels.
In 2010, he became that series' youngest driver and the first black driver to win a race at Greenville-Pickens Speedway. A close friend of mine that has been partially paralyzed by strokes, pays for aids to "help". If they show up, they usually just sit and do nothing, root through her jewelry and personal effects, and some have been caught stealing jewelry.
One was there when she collapsed with another stroke, and instead of calling for help, she called her boyfriend and left, leaving her patient to manage on her own. It runs M - F from 10am - Noon and starting on Monday July 22 will repeat from 4pm - 6pm each day. My opinions about Tiger Woods or any other issue are mine and I could give a damn about what Feinstein or anybody else things about them.
In their prime at theA Washington Post, they were among the best sports writers in the country. A I was up close and personal with the sports department.A Kindred and Chad were talented writers but you could not trust them, Cornheiser and Feintstein's talent, they easily blended in with the landscape of the paper. A Feinstein called Wilbon the biggest ass kisser in sports media, if that is true he had great teacher in Cornheiser.
A When Solomon tried to kick Cornheiser to the curve (fire him) in the 80s he was able to move to the Style section of the paper.
A One black female Washington Post columnist wrote a book titled "Plantation on the Potomac." A She was describing her employer. A Hopefully, they were asked to participate and were of the same mindset as Wilbon not comfortable with Mr.
A Goodell makes more than any player in the NFL and he never has to make a tackle or catch a pass.A The owners recent pay out to the players for injuries suffered on their watch was peanuts compared to the billions they make year in and year out.

With the high-scoring Macauley, elite passer Cousy, and new prodigy Sharman, Auerbach had a core that provided high-octane fast-break basketball. In the next years until 1956, the Celtics would make the playoffs every year, but never won the title. Brown was desperate to turn around his struggling and financially strapped franchise, which was reeling from a 22a€“46 record.[5]A The still young but already seasoned Auerbach was made coach. A Nike NBA rep John Phillips and I met with VP Rod Thorn, League Counsel Gary Bettman and Head of League Security, Horace Balmer.A The meeting centered around whether Magic Johnson, Mycal Thompson and a group of NBA All-Stars would be allowed to travel to the Bahamas for a charity basketball game without league approval.
A He was right on point.A To this day I think Magic had a previous discussion with the league office. James Gholson, Red Auerbach, Biff Carter, Jessie Chase, Morgan Wooten, Everett Cookie Payne Sr., Frank Bolden, Dr. Leo Hill, Roper McNair, Earl Alfred, Maxwell Honemond, Tilman Sease, William Roundtree, Charlie Baltimore, Jaky Mathews, Ferdinand Day, Nick Turner, Walter Brooks, Ted McIntye, and my saviors, Dave Brown and Bighouse Gaines.A  They knew their Xs and Os, but more important, they were there for our highs and lows.A  Where have all those flowers gone? We never could have made it without them.I have given up on the Pigskin Club, but keeping hope alive for the DC Recreation Department and the Roving Leader Program. BELL 12-25-1940---8-1-2013A A GOOD COP WHO BROKE THE CODE OF SILENCE IN THE WASHINGTON, DC POLICE DEPARTMENT.
A The real Serpico is seen leaving the Bronx Courthouse alone after testifying before the Knapp Commission on wide spread police corruption in the department. A In the old days police A would carry a "drop knife---an inexpensive weapon cops would bring along on patrol to drop onto or next to suspect that they had taken out so that they could say that he had threaten them. A Today you don't even need to do that; all that you have to do is justify the use of deadly force if you are a police officer is to say that you feared for your life, for whatever reason. If the victim dies, that just means there will one less witness around to contradict the test-lie. A In the case of Officer Michael Slager of the North Charleston police, it appears he was being extra-carefulto cover his tracks.
A Probably he could have gotten away with simply declaring, as he did in the radioed report, that Walter Scott "took my taser," and that would have probably have sufficed to exonerate him. A But Slager having shot Scott eight times in the back--as everyone can see in the now famous video--perhaps felt that he needed a little help explaining what he was up to.
A So apparently dropped his Taser next to Scott's body, which would obviously help to make the case that Scott "Took my taster."A If you think that what happen in North Charleston is a unique case, its not.
A Only recently, in another case, a policewoman in Pennsylvania first Tasered a black man then shot him twice in the back as he lay face down in the snow. A Unless honesty is rewarded more often then corruption, the police will lose credibility altogether. A I wrote a letter to President Bill Clinton in 1994 addressing this very issue, saying that honest cops have never been rewarded, and maybe there ought to be a medal for them, he wrote back but nothing change. A If enough testi-lying is uncovered, then who is going to believe the police even when they are telling the truth?
A A Until now the shoot first fear of my life mantra has eliminated any cause for concern in the taking of life by police. A When a civilian committs a crime, every nuance is looked at, the better to "throw the book at" the suspect. A The other day I got a letter from a journalist in Argentina who was complaining about police and judicial corruption there. A I wrote back to him, there are good cops, even where you live, but if the good cops don't want to be painted with the same broad brush as the bad cops, they need to come forward and expose the guys who are doing bad things. A Take New York City detective who was caught on camera recently abusing an Uber driver with threats and foul language, A This was truly disgusting behavior.
Yet predictably enough the detective union leader, Michael Palladino, was out there making excuses for him, suggesting that, well, it was only one incident, and everyone has a bad day. A Afterward Police Commissioner William Bratton announced he was removing the detective's shield and placing him temporarily on desk duty while an investigation is conducted . A But this man needs to be demoted to uniform at the very least, or "back in the bag" as we use to say.
A Imagine what he is capable of doing under the cover of darkness if he can talk to someone like that in broad daylight. A There are plenty legitimate incidents where police believe, correctly, that their lives are in danger. A I was in a few of those situations myself during the course of my career.A But unless the police forces and society as a whole take action we're not going to be able to distinguish between the legititimate claims and made-up testimony.
A A long time ago Norman Rockwell painted a famous picture of a friendly neighborhood cop bending down to help a little boy. A For example; I could name someone who is a great athlete but a lousy human being or I could name someone who is a great human being but not a great athlete. A Heading the list is Muhammad Ali (The Greatest), Red Auerbach (NBA), Dave Bing (NBA), Lenny Moore (NFL), Bert R. Sugar (Boxing), Lee Jones (NBA), Roy Jefferson (NFL) and Harold McLinton (NFL), finding pro athletes like them today are far, few and in-between. A And that is a sad commentary when you think about the hundreds of men and women I have interviewed on Inside Sports and worked with as a youth advocate (Kids In Trouble). Moore, LB Dave Robinson (2013 NFL Hall of Fame inductee) and WR Roy Jefferson host KIT toy party. A Sam Jones (NBA), Lenny Moore (NFL) and Roy Jefferson (NFL) participate in KIT clothing drive for needy children at Union Station. A Bert Sugar (Boxing) receives KIT Life Time Achievement Award and Dave Bing (NBA) pays tribute to KIT Saturday Program All-Stars.I had the opportunity to hear an interview on Sirius A XM Radio (channel 126) on the Maggie Linton Show recently, her guest was NFL Washington Pro football player, wide receiver Peirre Garcon.
A I have not been very impressed with todaya€™s pro athletes and their give back commitment to their family, friends and community. A He has three older sisters making him the youngest and the only one born in the United States.His father died when he was 4 years old leaving his mother to raise him and his 3 sisters alone. A My background is similar to Peirrea€™s, my mother had to raise 4 boys alone with an assist from Grandma Bell.
