Coastal Empire First Black Rodeo

Take Me To Post Comment Form

I'm excited about the Coastal Empires first Black Rodeo. The fact that it's being called the "First Black Rodeo" will upset some.

I'm sure the reason they choose the name has to do with the fact that it's unique and you don't see many minorities participating in the local rodeos.

Instead of taking offense-think about attending and experiencing something different. It's for all; "First Black Rodeo" describes the crew.

If you love the rodeo--come out and have a good time.

Information below..

PoliticsNation, I am being completely sincere with this question. With the racial problems this nation is currently experiencing, why would anyone support any event that segregates the races and only allows one race to take part in it?

timeontarget commented on Sunday, May 29, 2016 at 14:51 PM

I'm sorry but it's reverse discrimination and that seems like it is race baiting.

If I'm wrong PN I apologize right now.

how would people feel about a "white rodeo"? and that is why racism isn't getting any better, black rodeo, miss black hinesville, miss black america, B.E.T. and so forth.

PoliticsNation commented on Monday, May 30, 2016 at 18:39 PM

Let me start by saying,,the words below are strong but truthful.

The reason blacks have their own banner is because historically, whites did not want us under theirs. Whites would abscond to all-white neighborhoods- worship in all-white churches, played golf at all-white country clubs. Whites learned white history in all-white schools; kept the peace with an all-white police force/juries, and gained powers in all-white political parties.

Let too many women of color win the Miss America pageant and whites will holler- why don’t we have a Caucasian Miss America? Never mind the fact that it had been just that up until the early 70’s. All white every single year since 1921. Lets not even talk about television programming. I grew up in a time when almost every single show or sitcom was white. Period.

“On the other hand, such non-white gatherings as history months, black-owned businesses, minority organizations and clubs, and even beauty contests, have often been a response to white supremacy -- a way of reasserting, and even repairing, something about a racial group that white supremacist ideology and practice has long denigrated, and damaged.”

Blacks could sit on their butts and feel sorry for themselves every time whites excluded them from something, or they could become pro-active. Start their own versions of country clubs- Masonic organizations, churches, educational institutions and the like. I could imagine it started like this-- They don’t want us in your stuff? Then we’ll build our own. Problem is whites are blind to the racism that keeps us out- then turn right around and complain when we congregate amongst our own. Lest we forget; Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "It is appalling that the most segregated hour of Christian America is eleven o'clock on Sunday morning." Whites in effect Created the all black magazines- the all-black schools; all-black churches and racially-themed prom celebrations. All because they couldn't stand to be around blacks..

It's time to get out of the past. That's the problem now. Ohh. 60 years ago it wasn't fair. It's been more then fair since. Even giving afermitive action preference to make up for not having the same opportunity back then. This generation had the same opportunitys that everyone else has. Yet we either have to lower the standards or give them extra points so blacks can pass fire and police exams. Quit living in the past. Racism will slowly fade away when people quit using the race card and separating people based on race. Things like black only events.

PoliticsNation commented on Monday, May 30, 2016 at 19:38 PM

cpl--First of all Affirmative action benefits white females more than blacks.

2nd---Police and Fire Fighter test--only a small number of minorities sat for the test; so the numbers are flawed. If you look around more minorities are working in the field as officers/chiefs. Also, this year alone most valedictorians where minorities--college and high school. Most minorities could pass the test if they choose to go into the field

3rd racism-- If American racism were a thing of the past, nine men and women who went to church that Wednesday evening would be alive.

gacpl commented on Monday, May 30, 2016 at 20:34 PM

And if you followed the whole story you would know that seeing blacks riot in the street was the trigger to violence. It doesn't make it right. But if there weren't any riots of criminals getting killed. The 9 would still be alive

MikeLongCounty commented on Monday, May 30, 2016 at 21:02 PM

Well PoliticsNation, from the tone and the commentary, you see why I don't agree with it and never will. We all know of the injustices in the past, but that is where they are...in the past. Racism still does exist today, and it always will, but events like this one will always make it worse. The only thing high-lighting one race over others does, is fuel more racism. But I will say I believe in this organization's right to have this rodeo and establish their criteria for participation. Just as I do for any other group of people. The difference is that if some groups (whites, males, Christians, conservatives, heterosexuals) wanted to have an event of their own and alienate others from it, and just have their group take part, they are called racist, sexist, and haters. For that matter males and females can't even have their own restrooms anymore with being called haters.

And this is why we have Trump, as the GOP nominee for president, because people are tired of just accepting these prejudices.

And as for "racism-- If American racism were a thing of the past, nine men and women who went to church that Wednesday evening would be alive".

Yes this is true, but if racism also were a thing of the past a white woman in Detroit wouldn't have been gang-raped by a group of blacks, as her husband was held down and forced to watch last year.

Racism and hatred will always exist, but certain things make it worse. What also makes it worse is that the church crime made national news, but the gang-rape was hardly even covered, and when the report was initially released the race of the suspects were not even mentioned. That's worse than racism, that's deception and lies.

PoliticsNation commented on Monday, May 30, 2016 at 21:43 PM

@Mike-we can go back and fourth all day about crimes reported and unreported and etc.

The lady you mentioned was being ganged raped by a group of black males and dozen of black women were being arrested and raped by a white law enforcement officer.


I think what the world needs is love and empathy for all mankind.

Sheran commented on Monday, May 30, 2016 at 21:43 PM

Damn good post Mike, Thank You sir.

Sheran commented on Monday, May 30, 2016 at 21:55 PM

I think more people need to speak up against all crimes against all people and leave race out of it. This blog sounds like a Al Sharpton speech. Al makes money out of hate speeches and sets buildings on fire to avoid the IRS and visits the White White House like it's a bathroom. I also think he's PN's mentor!

up2sumptin commented on Monday, May 30, 2016 at 22:12 PM

Yes PN, the world would be a lot better if we tried to walk in other people's shoes. There is very little love or empathy in the world today.

PoliticsNation commented on Monday, May 30, 2016 at 22:13 PM

@Mike--I appreciate your feed-back. I don't agree with most of it but we can agree to disagree and keep it classy.

PoliticsNation commented on Monday, May 30, 2016 at 22:16 PM

@up2--Thanks. I value your input and insight. You bring it home for all of us.

HMJC commented on Tuesday, May 31, 2016 at 16:06 PM

Not sure how supporting an event that is divisive in nature is positive for a community nor the nation. As for transgressions of the past; they are the past and will only remain that way is if we propagate change and look forward to the future which by the way will never truly happen if we choose to live in and blame all of our woes on the past. Time to move on

gacpl commented on Wednesday, Jun 01, 2016 at 10:33 AM

PN you are a big part of the problem, you constantly are posting anything race based. you even posted when some white criminals got committed a crime. to point out that white people can be criminals. if we posted when a black criminals committed crimes you wouldn't be able to blog here anymore, there would be no space left. and as far as fire exams, a blacks right group sued several fire depts, due to the tests being too hard for black people to pass them.

PoliticsNation commented on Wednesday, Jun 01, 2016 at 14:25 PM

@gacp you may want to look at the stats--Crimes are committed by all races in large numbers...no secret there bud. It's funny how you are able to label what's racist and what's not....but you have a problem when I do it. So It's racist when I post a blog about white's committing crimes? but it's okay when others post crimes committed by minorities. Unfortunately, it's people like you that need to take a hard look at themselves. You're lost in "out dated theories and old talking points that others use to make themselves feel superior:"your mindset dates back to the 1800's. Well, I hate to break it to you--look around the world--it's changing--those old talking points are dead--i'm sure as a cpl you're far down the chain and someone that you don't approve is calling the shots. Have a seat..I've raised black males and one daughter...they are all college graduates and working great jobs--they had no desire to work in law enforcement/public service--if they did--they would have passed the test with flying colors and many others. You hate my blogs because the truth makes you uncomfortable. No race is superior over the over-we are all flawed. Most of you have been taught that the color of your skin made you better or smarter than the next person--lie. Minorities have been through a lot but we've taken lemon and made lemonade. Keep your eyes open--You haven't seen nothing yet!

up2sumptin commented on Wednesday, Jun 01, 2016 at 14:45 PM

I kinda see where PN is coming from. I was reading an article. Where people are calling for the mother whose child fell into the gorilla pit to have her children taken away by DFCS. People are also commenting on the father's possible criminal history even though he wasn't present when the in incident took place. Yet, went prior incidents ocuurred none of the vile and threatening statements occurred. The difference is those were white families and this one was black. I do think that racism is alive and growing in this country. But I also think that racism is a circular problem at times. I just don't know know how to break the pattern.

PoliticsNation commented on Wednesday, Jun 01, 2016 at 14:58 PM

@HMJC--Have you ever eaten at a Mexican, German or Chinese Restaurant? Do you have a problem with Jewish Holidays? Do you have a problem with any of the Holidays that other cultural groups celebrate to honor their heritage or traditions? Why is it an issue when blacks celebrate their cultural or choose to label it as such.... Think about it...Never seen anyone raising cain about the Jews or other groups labeling events as such...You don't have to label an event by your ethnicity because we've been taught about Western History all of our lives--you don't need a special event or holiday because we celebrate Western holidays with out question.

It's labeled that way to attract little minority kids that don't know a black cowboy exist because they're not taught that in school or that it's not a dream to ride a bull or master a rope and etc...

Holidays--you don't give a darn about!
