Provoked Thoughts: Kwame Brown

"Why in the hell are 2 steel rims 18 inches in diameter, 10 feet off a wooden floor that is 94 feet long x 50 feet wide played with a rubber ball with a circumference of 75 centimeters got our black communities all tied literally in knots? I mean why? How is it that this one particular player has taken over as the conscious voice of black men? I am just asking because when he was playing with that rubber ball, his voice was null and void, about the pertinent black issues confronting black America. Hell, did he even attend the Million Man March? But now that his pockets are full and he isn't jeopardizing a damn dime. He's become the voice of black reason this season. I am just asking because as an educated black man I am trying to understand this situation."
