drop the name, and why it's good. i'm reading 'dread empire', off the hook ...
I'm reading the life and hard times of Charley Burley
um its good because
I guess becuase, Charley Burley is the coolest. More or less.
he was an uncrowned welterweight fighter from the 1940's who fought with a style of a fighter from the 1800's and was frozen out of championship fights because he was a) black and b) extremely good
Charley was smooth
impossible to even touch let alone hit.
there is a rare silent film of one of his fights. this fight took me years to find. Charley fought like
he wasn't even made of matter
like he was weightless
he makes Floyd Mayweather Jr look like a heavyweight
evevery top fighter of his era avoided him like the plague. Sugar Ray Robinson baltantly ducked him. He was quoted as saying he wanted no parts of Charley Burley. White fighters also blatantly ducked him. everyone ducked him.
because of that he had trouble making a living as a fighter. he was too good for his own good
his is a strange tragedy
so there's no recorded footage of his fight? ...
yeah there is. here is the story
the silent film reel was finally transcoded and released a few years ago on a private boxing tracker. the instructions were to not under any circumstqances share this fight to anyone who was not already a member of the tracker. boxing collectors are extremely selfish types. and I feel this is wrong.
this fight did eventually leak (I won't say by who) though and the fight is now fairly common. some guy even put it on youtube.
this is the only footage of Charley Burley that exists
oh Charley Burley is the lightskin guy. his mom was white.
i donno if it's the olden-style shot footage or his boxing, but the moves are real quick. moves fast ...
Just started Brave New World.
reminds me a little of joe louis, the brown bomber
@topic: ive recently finished dune messiah, and im not reading anything new at the moment. but ive been continuing my reading of race and culture by sowell, and also rereading emperor of china by jonathan spence
thomas sowell is my nigga.
Only thing im reading at the moment is A wind up bird chronicle by haruki murakami. Probably wont finish because the print is annoyingly small and the publishers used shit paper which makes my thumbs feel funny.
mine komf by adof hetlar
its ok.. not enough jew hating
word. sowells chapter on the real history of slavery in black rednecks & white liberals is a must-read.
maybe you could find a better version? books are often published in different forms. ill check that title out though
lol. u serious? ...
not cause i hate the jews just cause it was 4:20 and i had to force myself not to have fun. long story short.
