They have played a single game this year, a 2-0 defeat of Luxembourg in a friendly in March.Uganda on the other hand have since made history of their own, returning to the African Cup of Nations finals for the first time since 1978.Uganda’s appearance at Gabon 2017 has been followed by three friendly matches, all drawn against Kenya, Ethiopia and Senegal ahead of today’s match.Cranes also have in their line-up a survivor that the Cape Verde team will know well – Geoffrey Sserunkuma.The current KCCA top marksman was part of then Cranes coach Mike Mutebi’s side that fell 1-0 in Cape Verde in 2004 but scored Uganda’s goal in their win in Kampala in 2005.“The Cape Verdeans play a flowing game but we managed to keep them silent at Namboole hence the win when I scored.

Barkley says ‘unintelligent’ Blacks ‘brainwashed’ to choose street cred over success

first_imgNBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley is not scared and is one of the most outspoken celebrity athletes of modern times, like him or not.So it comes to no surprise whatsoever that the former Philadelphia 76er superstar told Philadelphia radio hosts too many Black people are caught up in a culture that’s more concerned with street cred than intelligence.Speaking on the radio show “Afternoons with Anthony Gargano and Rob Ellis,” the current “NBA on TNT” commentator was asked his opinion on Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson, who was the subject of an article detailing allegations he wasn’t “Black enough.”Barkley did not detour around his feelings, but instead plowed through the controversial topic:“We as Black people are never going to be successful, not because of you White people, but because of other Black people. When you are Black, you have to deal with so much crap in your life from other Black people,” Barkley said.Barkley said African Americans are too concerned with street cred than true success and that’s holding the community back.“For some reason we are brainwashed to think, if you’re not a thug or an idiot, you’re not Black enough. If you go to school, make good grades, speak intelligent, and don’t break the law, you’re not a good Black person. It’s a dirty, dark secret in the Black community.“There are a lot of Black people who are unintelligent, who don’t have success. It’s best to knock a successful Black person down because they’re intelligent, they speak well, they do well in school, and they’re successful. It’s just typical BS that goes on when you’re Black, man.”What do you think of Barkley’s scathing comments? Agree or disagree?last_img read more
