You bring up a great point here. Nice article.
Have to admit you have a great point, there is much more outrage for an old,
rich owner than a young, stupid player. And, Sterling did not commit
any physical act of violence, he was only illegally recorded speaking garbage.
Ray Rice committed serious physical injury to a woman and then spoke garbage at
a press conference. Married her for protection against her testimony?
Totally agree. A man knocks his woman out and drags her around like a caveman
and the media and the NFL yawn. Before this excellent article came out I
wondered where's the outrage ?
I think he should be banned for life...what he did was far more serious than
what the Clippers' owner did. But he won't be. Racism has the front
page nailed down. Perhaps if this offending player were white and his girlfriend
Nice article. Sterling loses his NBA team for regrettable remarks,
but a Rutgers professor says the Isla Vista shooting is due to "white
privilege." I haven't heard anything about sanctions to her.So, to sum it up, you can talk smack about whites, but not blacks, and you can
hit women, but you can't talk about gays.
The local media wants to hang BYU for "sock gate" and it's been the
constant fodder for talk radio for two weeks. Seem ironic that the Ray Rice
situation gets swept under the elevator rug!
Great posts. To me it's just another illustration of how incredibly out of
whack our society has become. Oh for the good ol' days, but it'll
never happen. Follow the money, folks. Pro sports are so outlandlishly
worshiped that all reason and sense has flown the coop.
You have a good point here. When you get punished for talking mean
to a teammate (who is big and strong and able to defend himself)... but nothing
happens when you knock out a defenseless woman... there's something wrong
with how we look at things, and justify some, while punishing others.Ray Rice should get at least the punishment Incognito got. Instead...
nothing. I guess they're saying she deserved it?
great article, we can thank our president for how people think about these
situations, he has changed the moral compass of our nation!
The NAACP would do more good by focusing on the group they are trying to help,
rather than going around blaming everyone else for the struggles of that
Where's the outrage in the aftermath of any case of domestic abuse?
It's never there, and that has a lot more to do with religion than it has
with president Obama.
