I will say it again, social media is one of the most abominable creations ever. It is adding to the destruction of society and being exploited by evil people. Jason Whitlock with very thoughtful words once again.
It just made Patrick Mahomes a half black/half white man, and by all accounts great guy the highest paid player in NFL history after making Russell Wilson, another black man and all-around good guy the highest paid player last year. Yeah, that’s racist. It just shows if you work hard, do the right things, perform and don’t be a total prick (Colin Kaepernick) the NFL, one of the county’s ultimate meritocracies, will reward you. I only mention Mahomes racial background to destroy the narrative. I do not care if he is black, white, brown, green or pink! He earned it.
And Jason Whitlock crushes another dinger:
As he points out he was the product of and benefitted from a stable family. He then quotes numerous statistics on how not having a two-parent family leads to numerous bad outcomes, and trashes BLM over their pledge to destroy the nuclear family. You want to know why black Americans as a whole have so many problems? It isn’t “racism”, it is single parent families. That’s it!
Well, that did not take long. About 48 hours. Far less time than it took to debunk the Jesse Smollett case. I guess we cannot call it a “hoax” as there is no evidence it was done on purpose, but almost as disturbing was the rush to judgement by media, NASCAR and a bunch of moronic celebrities (big surprise) as well as the opportunism shown by those involved, especially Bubba Wallace. Will there be apologies or at least some “we were wrongs”? Don’t hold your breath. Anyone with two brain cells realized form the get go it well could have been a hoax or a mistake. Turns out it was likely the latter. A handful of vile race-baiting leftists in media have stooped to write “yeah but” articles claiming the America is a horrible racist country with entrenched systemic racism. Repeat after me: the US is the most diverse country on the planet and actual racism is very rare. Yes it exists, but it is not around every corner. You want to see a racist country? Visit Japan or China. Parting comment: NASCAR is dying after an incredible run in the 1990’s and 2000’s. This will not help.
