DeShawn Stevenson’s Lincoln Tattoo?

Why DeShawn Stevenson has Lincoln tattooed on his neckWell, of course DeShawn Stevenson(notes) got an Abraham Lincoln tattoo on his neck because the 16th president of the United States issued the Emancipation Proclamation, even during a time when the states weren’t technically united. We knew that, but it’s nice for DeShawn to clarify it.

There has been some quibble as to why Stevenson put the tattoo of Lincoln, surrounded by two number 5s (Lincoln, for our international readers, is featured on the American five-dollar bill) on his neck two years ago. But DeShawn, in an interview with 105.3 The Fan in Dallas (as presented to us by Sports Radio Interviews), has finally clarified the thing that was pretty obvious from the outset:

“I was going to get Martin Luther King and I told Gilbert Arenas(notes). You should never tell nobody your idea. That summer, he came back and got it. So I didn’t know who to get. I got Abraham Lincoln because he freed the slaves. I just had Abraham Lincoln and, from a distance, everybody kept saying, ‘Who is that?’ So I put the five-dollar bill so everybody would stop asking me.”

Without getting too far into a history lesson, I hope this clown realizes that the purpose of the Emancipation Proclamation was more to ensure that the inbred, redneck, sister-fuckers  in the South did not secede from the Union and not so much about freeing the slaves.  Lincoln actually thought that black people were inferior and it’s not like he just freed the slaves out of the kindness of his heart.  I’m not even trying to be Malcolm X here, but if DeShawn Stevenson ever picked up a fucking history book, he would know that.
