A country with such systemic, deep rooted racism, that black men can get paid millions upon millions of dollars to throw footballs and bounce basketballs, or to sit inside in an air conditioned soundstage wearing a $5000 suit talking about other black men throwing footballs and bouncing basketballs. Yeah, sure sounds like a terrible country to be a black man. LOL [/quote] And most of them have a white wife or girlfriend. [/quote] I think some of these people really think there is a genocide being perpetrated by the police against black men in America. That half Japanese half black tennis player Osaka almost pulled out of the US open to “use her platform” to talk about the genocide. While we are at it, I’d like to talk to her about how the Japanese committed brutal genocide against the chinese prior to and during WW2. That’s reality. She should be banned for life from sports for that as far as I’m concerned. So why hasn’t one reporter informed her that only 14 unarmed black men were killed by police last year? The real genocide is in the cities being done by blacks against other blacks. This gaslighting will never end. [/quote]
The NFL plans to have the words "End racism" and "It takes all of us" stenciled in the end zones this season, Commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday.
“The NFL stands with the black community, the players, clubs and fans confronting systemic racism. We will not relent in our work,” Goodell said on a conference call, according to NFL.com and Pro Football Talk.
NFL Executive Vice President Troy Vincent also reportedly said players will have the right to boycott Week 1 in protest.
In separate news, Vincent said Tuesday that the league is finalizing plans to pump in crowd noise at games, according to ESPN. That includes setting a maximum decibel level.
