The Games People Play Clouds Consciousness
I truly believe that as professional sports has expanded so has the consciousness towards social justice declined in our black communities. Look around people are more interested in discussing and seeing sporting events than working on solutions to our community problems. Yes, there was professional sporting events in the 1950's, 1960's and 1970's but not at the magnitude that now exists. So much so that it seems that sports have overtaken the nation's black psyche, we can go from watching a horrific act of injustice to watch first and ten in a blick of an eye. The funny thing first and ten is more important to more than that act of injustice. We are being fed sporting events to keep our conscious mind starved.
