Kareem AbdulJabbar The Baltimore Uprising Is Not Just About

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the Hall of Fame former NBA player who won six championships and transformed the game with his patented “sky hook,” underwent quadruple coronary bypass surgery last month. When the protests grew angry in Baltimore over Freddie Gray’s death, Abdul-Jabbar’s heart was broken.A voice for the disenfranchised much of his life, he has spoken or written about social injustices with eloquence and perspective. For Time magazine, Abdul-Jabbar, still recovering from heart surgery, weighed in with strong, insightful positions that show how in tune he is — and how other athletes can follow his lead.The former center started his essay by writing: “The curfew has been lifted in Baltimore, and now all of God’s children are once again tucked back in the snug routine of their daily lives. The black temper tantrum is over, America. We can all go back to watching Castle boyishly charm his way through murder mysteries. Order is restored.“Except, as Sportin’ Life says in Porgy and Bess, ‘It ain’t necessarily so.’”Abdul-Jabbar used sports lingo to make the point that more uprisings could be on the horizon and that the impact of the uprising will not end any time soon. “What happened in Baltimore isn’t just a one-and-done situation,” he wrote. “This wasn’t just a slight sprain in the ankle that we’ll be able to walk off by morning. This was a violently shattered bone that will have America limping forward on crutches for months to come, maybe even years.“One thing that history has taught us is that civil unrest is rarely just about what incites the incident. From what information the public has been given, Freddie Gray’s death seems like a malignant cocktail of negligence and abuse, and the charges brought against the six officers seem to confirm that. But we’ve seen this all before — many times.”Significantly, like many, including the protesters indicated, the response to the death of Gray is bigger than that one horrible action, Abdul-Jabbar conveyed. And he rightfully expresses worry over the idea that the outrage will flicker and not rage.“The Baltimore uprising isn’t just about Freddie Gray. The image of the cops carrying him, his legs dangling uselessly, his neck crooked awkwardly is a visual manifestation of the impotence many African Americans have felt over the past year as death after death of black people at the hands of police keep adding up,” Abdul-Jabbar wrote. “After each death there is the usual flurry of outrage, protests, political promises, celebrity tweeting, and condemnation of protestors. Then nothing happens until the next death, which is often tragically close behind. About 70 unarmed Blacks have been killed by police between 1999 and 2014. The only thing that seems to change is that the list of the dead keeps getting longer.”Abdul-Jabbar was not well-liked by the media during his playing days because he saw through them. He saw most of them as vultures seeking inflammatory information or personal info that was no one’s business. So, he often was described as “surly” or “petulant.” The reality was that he was insightful and a deep thinker who was intellectually superior to the reporters who covered him.That mind — and his courage to speak out on racial injustice — came through when he wrote: “Baltimore is the most recent in a long, frustrating line of protests that … reveal a larger pattern of systemic injustice. For African Americans, it feels as if we are all gathered together in the path of giant steamroller. We shout up at the driver to put on the brakes, but he keeps shouting for us to get out of the way. But there’s no place to go. We keep backing up and backing up. In Baltimore, it felt as though everyone’s back was against the wall, and there was no place to back up to anymore. If shouting doesn’t get the driver’s attention, maybe something more drastic will.“Baltimore protestors weren’t just expressing their anger over the treatment of Freddie Gray; they were expressing their frustration over living in economic circumstances that makes them seem less than human to those in power. Worse, they have little hope that these circumstances will change.”Not many people — forget about an athlete — express such keen insight, especially considering his fame and wealth have him as far physically removed as one could be from Baltimore. But Abdul-Jabbar clearly is connected. “What’s even more frustrating for African Americans across America witnessing the events is the blatant attempt of some in the media to portray this as (1) the result of “thugs” who want to exploit Gray’s death to stock up on some free TVs and (2) an anomaly that doesn’t represent America,” he wrote. “Both attitudes exhibit the kind of racial profiling that is at the heart of the problem in the first place.”He ended his nearly 1,100-word essay with a history lesson. “America was born out of protest. We felt economically suppressed and politically repressed, and we changed things. Slaves weren’t freed by benevolent leaders wanting to do the right thing. No one gave the American worker better and safer conditions out of gratitude for a job well done. Vietnam veterans didn’t get their benefits from an Agent-Orange-denying government by sitting at home waiting patiently. Each time, Americans took to the streets to be heard.“I suggest we all pay attention to what’s happening in Baltimore, because it’s very likely that unless the economic and injustice issues raised there are addressed in a meaningful way across the country, we will be seeing many more Baltimores throughout the election season.”With that, Abdul-Jabbar threw down the figurative mic. The man who perfected the “sky hook” had scored a slam dunk. read more

Tonight Alives Jenna McDougall On The Specialness Of Warped Tour

first_img Facebook The Australian band’s lead singer lets us in on why the annual summer festival has been so important during its 20-year runRenée FabianGRAMMYs Jun 22, 2018 – 11:52 am Australian band Tonight Alive formed down under in Australia in 2008. Comprised of vocalist Jenna McDougall, guitarist Jake Hardy, bassist Cameron Adler, and drummer Matt Best, the band has gifted the alt-rock community with four full-length studio albums so far, including their latest January 2018 LP, Underworld.As Warped Tour veterans, our host, Ryan J. Downey, caught up with the band’s lead singer McDougall at the first day of this year’s festivities in Pomona, Calif., on June 21, where she dished on the “evolution” of performing at the revered summer festival, the advice she would share with her younger self and why the Warped Tour community has been so important during its 20-year run.So you have obviously done the Warped Tour before. Is it bittersweet knowing this is the last time?A little bit. I think it’s going to become a little bit more painful as we get into it, recreating that bond and feeling it again. It’s been a pretty life-changing tour for us. This is our fourth time.I was going to ask you if you could sum up Warped Tour in one word, and I suppose life-changing, it’s hyphenated, that counts.I feel like evolution. It just gives you a chance to embody what you want to embody and be who you want to be. You get to put that in practice every single day and really manifest your highest devotion to yourself, highest devotion to your band. I love it.What was your impression of Warped Tour growing up, obviously not growing up in America. Was it just something you always inspired to like, “I want to be on that someday, I want to go to that someday”?We did, absolutely. We grew up in Australia, and its so far removed from everything. Every band we loved was American and all we wanted to do was become an international touring band.  I remember being 14 and watching YouTube videos of Rufio. They were one of our favorite bands growing up and we got to tour with them in the following years. … We were really young when we heard about Warped and we never got to be fans of the festival. We are fans of the festival, but we see it from a different perspective. We see it from the inside out or outside in.This is your fourth Warped Tour. What do you wish that you would have known the first time that you know now, the fourth time, that makes your life easier out here?Maybe not even totally related, but just in general, what I wish I knew when I was younger is that I don’t have to try. You just be. Just be who you are and you emit a frequency, you put out a signature and people will pick up on it or they won’t. And that’s OK. It’s not a reflection of your worthiness or your ability to be interesting or your skills or anything like that. It’s not a reflection of that. It’s just a reflection of whether you resonate with people. I think I always tried to perfect and control how people would receive me or our band. And now it’s just amazing we get to come back this many times. I’m just happy to be here and play the music we know people love now. We don’t have to project anything. So I think that comes with age as well as experience.I want to ask you, we’re asking everybody that’s here, if you could say anything to Kevin [Lyman] and those who run Warped Tour, given it’s the last time, a thank you or anything like that.Everything I could say, they know. This has been a life-changing experience for me. It’s given me a chance to cultivate a sense of sense, a sense of identity, a sense of connecting with people and figuring out what matters to me. I love the fact that it’s six weeks long. I’m sure in the past it has been longer, but the fact that you get to do this everyday, it really challenges you and tests you. It wants you to know if this is important enough. And it is. And it creates passion and it feeds your fire and that’s the opportunity that they put in front of us as artists but also that they put in front of kids as well, to come to a place where that energy of being an outcast and a rebel and an anti-conformist is amplified, and the safety. There’s a bubble that surrounds us and it pulls us all in. I just feel for the people that live in one city and only get to see this once a year, and we get to do it 36 times a year.It’s a place where all of us outsiders can come together and belong somewhere.One-hundred percent. I don’t want that to go away. But we’ll find other places.People will always find community in music, and music like Tonight Alive.
