The usual anti-racism crowd is punting.....
In early June, Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints refused to take a knee because he didnt want to insult the flag. Black NFL players lined up to denounce him.
Ignorant, said his black teammate Emmanuel Sanders.
Drews words were extremely painful to hear, another black Saint, Malcolm Jenkins said, and I hope he rectifies them with real action.
If you dont speak about racism, then youre a part of the problem, said A.J. Brown of the Tennessee Titans.
A month later, in early July, DeSean Jackson of the Philadelphia Eagles posted on Instagram an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory attributed to the noted sports fan Adolf Hitler. None of Jacksons NFL peers, black or white, has said a word. Colin Kaepernick, who is usually so vocal about racism, has been uncharacteristically silent. The New York Times, usually so quick to denounce imaginary offenses against the speech-code mania of the day, said nothing at all. The leaders of Black Lives Matter didnt order their minions to add this outburst of racism to their to-do list either.
From which we conclude that Jacksons knee-taking peers in the locker room, the icons of BLM and the gatekeepers of the paper of record either agree with him, or think its not a big deal, or think that black racism toward Jews should be overlooked in the name of the greater cause of anti-racism. In a way, it doesnt really matter which. Any society that establishes any of these beliefs as acceptable normalized as the guardians of speech now say is heading to perdition.

I would say that it is because blacks only see black racism ... nothing else matters. How many have denounced Farrakhan? Jesse Jackson gets away with calling New York Hymietown. Al Sharpton incites a riot against a Jewish-owned Harlem department store which results in a number of deaths and walks free.
As for DeSean Jackson, I expect his release from the Eagles any minute now. Not that it matters as I don't think there will be an NFL season this year. And I am done with the BLM ass-kissing NFL anyway.
I assume that is a rhetorical question.
I think it’s pretty clear.
“DeSean Jackson is the man”.
I doubt this idiot even knows who Adolf Hitler is, what country he ruled, and when he lived. He also probably thinks the Third Reich was an 80s music group.
And that The Holocaust is a Manhattan night club...
Cause he is Black.
Because they’re mostly uneducated dumbasses?
Uh, because that's what his coreligionists believe and support, and everyone else in the NFL is either intimidated, or couldn't care less.
If it weren’t for Americans. Hitler would have thrown your black ass in a fire pit bro. No lie.
Right with you and if any NCAA Big 12 teams pull this BS, I am done with them as well. All indications to date say that they will.
The commies wrecked another institution. That’s o.k. I’ll never watch another moment of these morons running around a field and kneeling against my flag and spitting on my country.
Didnt Malcolm Jenkins (now with Saints) play with Eagles ?
Not much of a college education he got there.......
Nothing quite so ironic as a bunch of black racists lecturing everyone else on ‘racism’.
You guys are killing your sport.
The Kansas City Chiefs need to change their racist name... As do the Celtics, the Fighting Irish and the Toronto Raptors... Did anybody ask the Raptors if they wanted their name associated with basketball? I highly doubt it... And the 49ers... Making fun of a bunch of chumps who went to California for fools gold. And what about the Patriots... We all now know that all the Patriots were apparently slave owners.
And my absolute favorite... ‘The Masters’. When is somebody going to pick up on the fact that the only ‘Masters’ in George prior to that golf tournament were ‘slave’ Masters.
Because they agree with him.
I agree with the first reason given - they probably agree with him.
I’ve been done with NCAA and all of their racist, anti-white BS for quite a while now.
Columbus Blue Jackets. The surname and the nickname.
