A bunch of people messaged us about this tweet that they believed came from NFL insider Ian Rapoport:
Did you guys miss that on TV? The part where 60,000 people started randomly chanting the same racial limericks at the same time? It was remarkable how they all did it without any coordination of planning. But you know those Bostonians, racism just runs in their blood.
How stupid do you have to be to believe this? Just look at the handle – @sp0rtstalkjoey. Yea, that’s Ian Rapoport’s handle. Definitely. Oh, and you know those blue checkmarks? Twitter and Facebook do that so you can avoid embarrassing yourself like all these idiots did:
This is why Adam Jones’ lie, and the media’s perpetuation of that lie is dangerous – because when you tell a lie enough times it becomes the truth. This was retweeted hundreds of times until Twitter eventually took down the account. But it just goes to show you how quickly people will jump on the “Boston is a racist city” narrative. Fact don’t matter. You’re all a bunch of bigots. End of story.
But it’s nothing new really. After all, the entire premise of black lives matter is rooted in a lie about a gentle 300 pound giant who was shot and killed while his hands were up. People believe this shit because they want to believe it. It fits their narrative and their agenda so they role with it, facts be damned. After all, the racism-industrial complex is big money. All these media outlets get record ratings because of it, and the people who have the cure for racism get paid to “fix” it.
