A Colored Look At The Past

There are many photography purists who think it’s a sin to colorize old black and white photos.  I used to think so too – until I saw this exhibition on Distractify (a really cool website.)  Check it out and take a look around the place.  I think you’ll like it.

Hypocrisy Scores Touchdown In NFL Game

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

In Monday night’s football game, Husain Abdullah intercepted a pass, ran 37-yards and scored the second touchdown of his career. He fell to his knees and touched his head to the ground in a traditional Muslim gesture of thanks to Allah. The yellow flag of ‘foul’ was immediately thrown and his team was penalized 15-yards. The charge? “Unsportsmanlike conduct/excessive celebration.”

But wait – don’t players do this shit all the time?  Don’t they point to the sky giving God all the credit?  Make the sign of the cross?  Kiss their religious tattoos? Thank the sky? Isn’t Quarterback Ted Tebow KNOWN for dropping to his knees after a touchdown?

Of course – but there’s a big difference here: Abdullah is Muslim and America is Christian.

Horseshit!  America is not a Christian nation – it’s a nation of religious freedom.  If you allow Christian gestures in the post TD celebrations, you’ve got to allow ALL religious demonstrations. Personally, I’d prefer any of them to butt-bumping, chest-pounding, dancing, and diving into the fans dripping with machismo.  If I had the choice, I’d select a short, professional nod to the cheering crowd – AND THEN GET ON WITH THE DAMN GAME!

UPDATE: Tuesday the NFL apologized for the call.
