Pissing While Black

Sooooo… Let me get this shit straight…

A kid plays for one of the best Philly High School teams of all-time. Playing alongside legendary ballers like Hank Gathers and Bo Kimble, they dominate Philadelphia scholastic basketball in the mid to late 80s. Wide eyed, with a bright smile he is embraced by the city.

Then he seemlessly transitions to LaSalle. Again, playing alongside a legendary baller, Lionel Simmons, they dominate the MAAC Conference and consistently rank among the best teams in the country.

This guy, Doug Overton, is very high profile. Everybody knows him. In fact he has a Big 5 Hall of Fame career at 20th and Olney. He’s widely recognized as one the “good guys.” He’s always accessible to younger players, fans and the media.

After college, he embarked on a 14 year professional career, 10 of which were spent in the NBA.

Overton’s pro career took him all over the world…

1991–1992 Rockford Lightning
1992 Illawarra Hawks

1995–1996 Denver Nuggets

2001 New Jersey Nets
2001–2002 Kansas City Knights
2002 FC Barcelona
2002 New Jersey Nets
2003 Sioux Falls Skyforce
2003–2004 Los Angeles Clippers
2005 Michigan Mayhem

All of those cities… All those state… Different continents…

Never, not one time was there ever a question about Doug Overton’s character.

Never…

In May 2006, Overton returned to Philly and joined the staff of Philly Coaching legend Phil Martelli at St. Joseph’s as an assistant men’s basketball coach. While on campus for two years there was never even a whiff of inappropriate behavior.

Never…

In 2008, he became an NBA assistant coach with the New Jersey (now Brookyln) Nets. Five years later he was named head coach of the D-League’s Springfield Armor. While he coached at the professional level his conduct was always exemplary. There was never an instance where his judgement was called into question.

Never…

In 2016, my alma mater, Lincoln University needed a basketball coach. I spoke to Overton for countless hours about that job. I encouraged him to apply. I supported his application. Once he was named Lincoln’s coach, Black Cager Sports Media was at the press conference.

When the Lions invaded Cheyney’s Cope Hall and took down the Wolves in front of a packed house, Black Cager Sports Media was there.

We caught up with Overton after the game…

Always… At all times Doug Overton conducts himself in a dignified manner. He has a lovely wife and son completing a Bachleor’s degree at Drexel. He’s an outstanding role model for young men in Philadelphia.

But…

While walking his dog on April 30, according to police…

“[Overton] was exposing himself on the Cynwyd Trail. One of the callers told police the man appeared to be touching himself around his genitals. Another witness told police the man’s penis was outside of his pants and that he was continuously looking at a female in the area. The witnesses then told police he was seen walking on the trail with his penis exposed.”

Well… he was taking a piss…

I’ve been pissing for 52 years… For the last 51 of those years I’ve touched myself around my genitals when doing so…

Since I’ve been out of diapers, pissed with my penis outside my pants… Gotta shake it at the end or your draws get wet…

The part where he was continuously looking at a female and walking with his penis exposed?

Fuck Outta Here!

I play golf… I piss outside…

I take long trips on interstates… I piss outside…

Sometimes I drink 1 or 4 beers… I piss outside…

The Lower Merion police, the witnesses and the local media need to stop with the bullshit!

You want us to believe there was something sexual about this man taking a leak in a park?

I’ll be in court for this hearing… I gotta see these people so afraid of Black penis.

Youngbucks take notes… Look at the writers putting this out there… Look at the media outlets smearing this man after 30+ years of impeccable behavior…

Pay attention.

Maybe he shouldn’t have pissed outside… Give him a ticket… He’ll pay the fine…

The concerted effort to damage his reputation is straight bullshit…

Fuck Outta Here!!

  1. I agree ,
    I knew that was what it was before it was clarified . On a trail he was most likely off of the trail and they newsey behinds was getting closer to see
    What he was doing. I would be looking like back up , you know if I were a guy.

  2. I went to high school with Doug Overton. I lived on the same street as Doug Overton’s family. Doug has always been respectful even as we were young kids on the block, at the playground, in High school and at ever game I I attended from 1984-1988 at Dobbins Tech. Please people don’t say what you have not truly seen. Doug’s a Good Brother and you couldn’t pay me to believe this B*** S***!!!

  3. Someone please let me know when the court proceedings are to occur. I have known Doug Overton for a good portion of my life. My brother Rodney Handy coached him until he went to college and I also work with him to groom him athletically and mentored him. I have always known him to be a respectable young man. He has never done anything that required legal intervention. This report is typical of what anyone of African American decent will encounter in the Montgomery County area. It is a place where you can never really feel comfortable if you’re are a person of color. But then again, where can your ever be comfortable when you are a person fo color. The accusations against him are ridiculuous.

  4. Set up written all over this. Any way they can disgrace our Black males white society is going to try. Black men and Black women
    you must stay on guard as to what you do in the crazy world we are living in! They are watching for that intruding moment to distroy
    YOU!

  5. I just want to THANK YOU so very very much for having my brother in-law and families back! I appreciated your article so much and thought that it was so appropriate to remind the people one how much Doug has done for the kids in the community and let people know that today it’s Doug tomorrow it could be you! People never cease to amaze me. How something so small could get so out of control. So proud of the Overton family they are truly troopers for what they have had to endure! Thank you again and I pray for your continued success in all you do. Hope to one day meet you and give you a great big hug! 😄🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
