The two worst type of people on the Internet right now are, 1) those who find a way to make every issue into a racial crisis, and 2) those who think Tom Brady is a cheater because of some PSI. What do you get when you put them together? This:
Yup. They went there. They somehow found a way to make Deflategate a racial issue.
A black football player got a 2 game suspension for knocking out his fiance in an elevator, because the only evidence was her unconscious body being dragged out of an eleavtor. A white football player got a 4 game suspension for some missing PSI that a chisler lawyer was paid $10 million to say that he thinks he knew about. But please, tell me more about Tom Brady’s “privilege.” Because if the most egregious, arbitrary, and vindictive punishment leveled against the greatest player of all time doesn’t prove that white privilege is a real thing, than nothing ever will.
Theroot.com (where this link can be found) is run by known poopsmooch Henry Louis Gates Jr. Remember that guy?
Back in 09 Skippy Gates forgot the key to his house so his limo driver tried breaking in. A concerned neighbor saw it and called the cops. Unfortunately the cop who had the misfortune of showing up, James Crowley, was white. Therefore when he asked Skippy for ID he was greeted with, “Why, because I’m a black man in America?” After refusing to provide ID Officer Crowley told him that he could speak to him outside, to which Skippy famously replied, “Yeah, I’ll speak with your mama outside.”
I don’t give a shit. “I’ll speak with your mama outside” is still one of the greatest lines I’ve ever heard. It’s the reason I can never stay mad at Skip Gates.
But it doesn’t change the fact that he’s a professional asshole by nature. All Crowley wanted to do was see an ID from Gates so that he could get the fuck out of there as quickly as possible. After all, Skippy would be the first person to complain if the racist Cambridge police let some burglar who refused to identify himself rummage through his house unabated. Instead he followed Crowley outside, kept calling him a racist, and was arrested for general dooshnozzelry. There is literally nothing you can do to please people like Skip Gates. Nothing.
Let’s check out what Internet geniuses are saying about this on the Facebook machine…..
PSI and killing dogs are the exact same thing. Strong argument. Strong.
Richard Sherman tested positive for steroids in 2012. Obviously steroids help you out a lot more than some PSI. Obviously. But yet Dicky Sherman was suspended a grand total of ZERO games because he won his appeal on a bullshit technicality. As a matter of fact three members of the “Legion of Boom” tested positive for roids that year, including old friend Brandon Browner. Sherman was the only one who didn’t miss a game. But please, tell me more about how a millionaire with a Stanford degree, who has successfully branded himself as the biggest asshole in the game, is an oppressed black man in America.
Oh look, another unproven allegation about a hypothetical situation that never happened. This is definitely healthy discourse. Definitely.
I agree with my man Heyward that the whole Jackie Robinson Little League thing was bullshit. But the fact of the matter is that they got caught red-handed. Those kids lived outside of the district. That’s a fact. Ted Wells said he THINKS Brady was generally aware the balls were missing some PSI. That’s an opinion. See the difference Heyward?
It’s like the perfect storm of butthurt and race-baiting.
Yea, if Tom Brady were black, he probably would’ve been arrested for some missing PSI. It’s a VERY serious offense. Then they would’ve taken away the Lombardi Trophy away from the Patriots. You know, because the quarterback was black.
He seems nice.
Ahhh yes. Poor oppressed Ray Rice and Adian Peterson, whose lone crimes included beating the shit out of a woman and a child. Why did everyone make such a big deal out of that anyway? Who doesn’t beat the shit out of their wife and children once in a while? Anyone can relate to that. But general awareness of some missing PSI? There’s no coming back from that.
Sweet baby Jesus, make it stop. Castrated? Emasculated? Lynched? That’s honestly what people think would happen to Tom Brady over some PSI if he were black? I think the worst part about these comments are that someone actually named their child Blynthia. That’s the real crime here.
The bottom line is that people like Skippy Gates and Roger Goodell are basically the same kind of people. They pander to morons like this. They are the new Pontius Pilate’s, offering up the unruly mob Barabas in order to further their own careers. But in the end, Tom Brady will rise again.
