(Washington Examiner) — If you stretch the news from D.C. Superior Court Monday, former Redskin Albert Haynesworth came out a winner. Last April he was charged with sexual assault for allegedly fondling a waitress at a downtown hotel. In court action, prosecutors did not pursue the sexual charge. Whew! Not so fast. Haynesworth dodged the sex rap, but he admitted to a charge that, in my book, is foul and disgusting. Repulsive, even. Here’s what the very large, very aggressive defensive tackle admitted to doing, according to the U.S. attorney: In the wee hours of Feb. 13, Haynesworth was entertaining a group of about 15 to 20 in P.O.V Lounge, Hotel W’s rooftop bar. It’s a wonderful, iconic perch in the capital, with views of the Treasury Building and the Washington Monument.
There’s one thing white America never has to worry about and that’s a white man making a point about how undesirable the female members of his ethncity are. For the latest spectacle of self hate, we turn to Washington Redskins player Albert Haynesworth who was recently indicted on one charge of sexual abuse, having been accused of fondling a cocktail’ waitresses breast.
According to the indictment, Haynesworth told a security guard, “I didn’t touch her” and that the waitress was “a little black girl” and he “doesn’t even like black girls.” Later, according to the indictment, Hanyesworth told detectives “I know what this is about, she is just upset I have a white girlfriend. I couldn’t tell you the last time I dated a black girl. She was trying to get with me.” (Source: dcentric.wamu.org)
Although people tend to make rash remarks when feeling defensive, why does it seem that Black women are so attacked by their men? What if the accuser had been a white woman? She probably would’ve been called a Itchbay, end of story. But Haynesworth had to take it there and really convey his dislike for his sisters. White women are never demonized in these narratives, since they are simply accepted of being representative of all women. But Black women, over and over again, absorb very specific attacks in the media and in everday life. Sadly, Black men are not always there to defend their women,which is not the case amongst other cultures and ethnicities.
(The Grio) – Albert Haynesworth said Saturday his $100 million contract doesn’t make him a slave to the Washington Redskins.
In an interview with 106.7 The Fan, the two-time All-Pro defensive tackle said the big paychecks don’t mean he can’t push back when the team asks him to play a different position.
Haynesworth, who rarely speaks to the media, was upset this year when the Redskins switched to a 3-4 defense and told him he would be playing nose tackle.
