“I’ll Take ‘Fight Songs’ For $1000, Alex!”

The Categories Are…

PHILADELPHIA (BASN/BASN NEWSROOM) As Sister ‘Reetha would say, “Let’s call this song exactly what it is.”


Hail to the NIGGERS!

Hail Victory!
COONS on the Warpath!
Fight for old D.C.!
Run or pass and score — we want a lot more!
Beat ‘em, Swamp ‘em,
Touchdown! — Let the points soar!
Fight on, fight on
‘Til you have won
Sons of Bitches – Rah! Rah!, Rah!
Hail to the NIGGERS!
Hail Victory!
COONS on the Warpath!
Fight for old D.C.!


Now…that version was after the 1980s: here’s their Old Skool version:





Hail to the NIGGERS!
Hail, victory!
COONS on the warpath!
Fight for Old D.C.!
Scalp ‘em, swamp ‘um
We will take ‘um big score
Read ‘um, Weep ‘um, touchdown
We want heap more
Fight on, fight on
‘Til you have won
Sons of Bitches
Rah! Rah! Rah!


So you honor the ‘fighting spirit’ of Washington’s pro football team by endorsing scalping (removing of an opponent’s scalp) as collateral damage of the battle? Interesting – wonder how many Native/First Nations brothers and sisters feel the same way?


Ohhh…what’s that you say? The lyrics aren’t correct?
Well, they sound correct to me – and, while I will not pretend to know what Native brothers and sisters are feeling, that’s likely what it sounds like to them!


Throw down whatever convoluted logic you wish; those who say or believe the Washington Football Team’s nickname is not a pejorative are full of shit – or paid to be fulla shit!


Any Black person whose has felt the sting of that word and condones by their actions rooting for that team and what their nickname is needs a checkup from the neck up…


Team Owner Daniel Snyder – is fulla shit; to continue to pretend the team’s nickname doesn’t disparage. Bet your ass you wouldn’t hear


Hail Victory!
Make all that Moolah


Because when the name is changed – his franchise will be worth even more…and doubtless he knows that.


So let’s stop all the mind games; the team’s nickname is an insult to Native people. You know because you’ve been told so – and each time you’re told (and you dismiss it) only magnifies your arrogance, your pettiness – and your stupidity.


And let’s not try that “tradition” horseshit either. To some folks in this country, stringing up a Black man or water fountains/bathrooms designated for different ethnic groups was “tradition” too!




The Black Athlete Sports Network never needed a press conference to say they won’t use that word; we simply didn’t do it as practice; until we  had to point out the madness which comes with this obvious slight to Native people.


I’m just tired of you muthafuckas runnin’ this game…and the NFLPA should be too – knowing you might get fined for saying Washington’s team name if someone crack back blocks or clips you.


We’re going to cut to commercial; don’t make us have to come back and go “Double Jeopardy!” on your ass…


Always outnumbered…never outgunned.
