Smith defended Kobe Bryant’s comments about the Miami Heat’s Trayvon Martin tribute, calling Kobe’s statement “spot on”. Then he defended Mark Cuban’s statement comparing Black males with hoodies to Skinheads! So fuck Stephen A Smith! Hate to see The Man check another brotha but I hope this deflates that big ass head of his!

“The Paradoxical Commandments
People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.”

Officials have discarded more than 4,000 pounds of potatoes at Alger Correctional Facility in Michigan after maggots were found in a shipment from a food supplier Wednesday.
The potatoes were from a supplier for Philadelphia-based Aramark Correctional Services, which handles prison food service in Michigan and elsewhere.
“We have told our local Michigan supplier that this is completely unacceptable and does not meet our high quality standards,” Aramark spokeswoman Karen Cutler said in a statement. “The president of the produce company is personally investigating the situation and has agreed to allow a third party auditor to inspect his facility.”
Michigan Department of Corrections spokesman Russ Marlan said the potatoes weren’t served or brought to the kitchen area.
Cutler says that the alleged incident is merely a smear campaign against Aramark in an effort to nationally privatize prison food services rather than outsource.
Proponents feel private industry can often do the job more efficiently and more cheaply, unencumbered by union and administrative rules, while opponents say a focus on the bottom line leads to cutting corners that creates danger for inmates and employees.
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder’s administration is approaching a decision on possibly reconsidering Aramark’s 3-year, $145 million contract. Earlier this year, Michigan officials reported two incidents of maggots found in a prison’s food service area in Jackson.
In Ohio, maggots in food, staffing shortages and reports of running out of main and side dishes are among recent complaints against Aramark.
An Atlanta man says that tensions got so high between him and a white UPS driver that the driver fashioned a noose out of packing material and handed it to him during an office delivery.
According to WSB-TV, David Mitchell said that during a routine workday that includes receiving packages as they come into the office where he works, the white UPS driver, whose name has not been released because UPS is still investigating the incident, began acting strange.
"I go pick up and this is what he made in front of me and handed to me. Signifying a noose. A makeshift noose," Mitchell told the news station.
Mitchell said that the driver shoved boxes in his chest prior to fashioning the makeshift noose out of packing material.
"It is under investigation, and we are taking this very seriously. We have met with the customer, and there is nothing more to share since it’s still being investigated," a UPS-issued statement read, WSB-TV reports.
The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident as a hate crime.
Mitchell told the news station that the beef between him and the driver started to escalate after an incident in the loading dock area a month ago.
"He refused to give me the package to deliver and I said, ‘I work here,’" Mitchell told the news station.
Mitchell notes that UPS told him that it has reassigned the driver to another route but hasn’t issued any serious punishment.
"They said it’s a ‘he-said-she-said,’" Mitchell told WSB-TV. "I don’t go to work with makeshift nooses in my back pocket."
