DeSean Jackson and Stephen Jackson Can Both Eat Bags of Rancid Dicks (S.J. Can Have the More Rancid Ones)

DeSean Jackson posted an anti-Semitic fake-Hitler quote and now, Stephen Jackson is digging in with his defense that basically boils down to "it's OK to be anti-Semitic if you're Black."

This crap--
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson said he has no hatred toward the Jewish community and issued two separate statements of apology with "a promise to do better" after he posted on social media Monday an anti-Semitic message that he attributed to Adolf Hitler and admiration for Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
--does not fly. This isn't a hell of a lot different from Trump posting his racist shit and then proclaiming that he "loves all Blacks" as he points to the one Black guy attending his rally. Saying that one didn't recognize racist bullshit as being racist bullshit is not believable. Neither is his apparently self-professed ignorance about who Hitler was.

Being part of any minority group does not give one a free pass to spout racist bullshit.

Here are a couple of pro tips: If you are going to say anything that ascribes a specific behavior or characteristics to any racial or ethnic group, then what you are about to say is racist and you should both shut your gob and reflect on why you were about to say that. If you are prefacing any remark with the words "I'm not a racist, but..", you have just proven that your first five words are lies.

As the old saw goes the, pot calling the kettle black.

At least a few of the black political pundits have have a
lot to say about those rich athletes of color and their
horrible position in life of rich privilege. For one to
go off on an anti-semite screed proves that institutional
racism is an ugly shared value.

Just another in mirror moment and the one in front of it
does not see it.

Boycott 'football'. Don't breakfast at the bar or lunch a restaurant featuring 'the game'; don't wear gangland apparel or participate in drunken promotionals. Treat it as if it didn't exist.

Football and other “organized sports” are relics of a primitive society.

Football is just organized war games.

Also a great source of brain injury.

Serious props to Julian Edelman, who has now invited Jackson to come with him to Washington D.C. where Julian will take him around the Holocaust Museum, and then tour the African American History Museum with him, before they sit down and have a discussion of the hard things.
