Now Playing Tracks


Richard Sherman does it again! This time he wrote an article coming to the defense of former Philadelphia Eagles receiver Desean Jackson. If you haven’t heard Desean was recently released from the Philadelphia Eagles for allegedly having Gang Affiliation or has they put it “gang ties”. Richard Sherman wrote that Desean wasn’t a gang member and he is a real stand up guy. Just like Richard, Desean grew up in the inner-city where they both have children friends that chose a different path than them. Richard would go on and make many valid points in the article like how Desean was released for “gang ties” but The other Eagles receiver Riley Cooper (who is white) is given a contract extension after he said”I will fight every nigger here.”, last season. The main thing that stuck out to me was the fact Richard came to his defense. This is how Black Athletes should move! The NFL teams already is owned by rich white males, that’s why it’s important that black athletes show solidarity and stick up for each other. The media would try to always make black athletes the bad guy and write stories to add to that. Black players commit certain crimes in the league and since they’re black they get fined and scorn.

Because women of colour experience racism in ways not always the same as those experienced by men of color and sexism in ways not always parallel to experiences of white women, antiracism and feminism are limited, even on their own terms… The failure of feminism to interrogate race means that the resistance strategies of feminism will often replicate and reinforce the subordination of people of colour, and the failure of antiracism to interrogate patriarchy means that antiracism will frequently reproduce the subordination of women
