Max Kellerman — ‘NFL is racist because Justin Fields is falling in mock drafts’…

SPORTS JUNKIES -- CHECK OUT GUTSMACK

 

ESPN began the week by lying to its readers, publishing a column accusing the NFL of racism against black quarterbacks. — “When it comes to black quarterbacks in particular, the NFL has long gone out of its way to keep the position as white as the painted yard lines on the field.”

 

But Johnson didn’t go far enough for ESPN brass. Max Kellerman, who has long acted as the race apologist on ESPN, continued to push the lie that American sports are inherently racist on Tuesday.

 

“What I’ve noticed in recent years, after decades of artificial barriers being put in place for Black QBs, that Black QBs tend to fall pre-draft,” Kellerman said on ESPN’s First Take.

 

There’s only one problem with Kellerman’s take — It’s simply not true.

 

None of these ESPN talents are willing to explain why Jameis Winston, Jamarcus Russell, Cam Newton, Kyler Murray, and Michael Vick all went first overall in the NFL Draft.

They are racist because they have different colored uniforms and they are trying to beat the team that is a different color. I’m calling the cops and then BLM to protest the cops!

I don’t, and haven’t for decades, watch pro football. Never heard of any of the quarterbacks listed, save for Michael Vick…a distant bell rang in my memory of a dog-fighting incident.

Also Max Kellerman is indeed a clown. His brother was murdered by a black boxer – James Butler…no doubt Kellerman blames the murder on white supremacists.

So here’s the deal with professional sports. A caste system exists – sports are most certainly not a meritocracy and sports were one of the first “pillars” weaponized by the left in their battle to denigrate white males. Am I saying that there are not good to great black athletes? Absolutely not. Am I saying that over the past 40+ years white players are ignored and discriminated against – Yes indeed.

I have followed the draft for the past 16 years and used to be a big time NFL fan. Now I am more of a reluctant observer. Back in my early 20s I got into the whole amateur draftnik thing but began to question why so few white athletes especially at positions like WR, RB, Defensive back were being drafted. I made the obvious connections when reading about white prospects – usually the same tired clichés were applied to every white player: “Gym Rat”, “Blue collar”, “Brings his lunch pail everyday”, “Tight Hips”, “Quicker than fast”, “technician” etc. – pretty much anything to not describe a white player as actually being athletic.

I have seen white players openly mocked and denigrated on national TV – during the combine just look at how the comments made when Penn St Safety Troy Apke ran a 4.3 40. I also saw Steve Smith refer to white safety Cody Davis as a “unicorn” before he and the rest of the blacks on the pre game show started cackling. These are two examples and they are most certainly not isolated events.

The discrimination against white athletes starts more or less during the recruiting process. Look up Zane Dudek for the case of a dominant white running back getting completely ignored by all Division 1 schools. Again this is just one example of thousands over the years. Colleges/Universities, coaches, recruiters, boosters all play a role in this – check out any recruiting site and you can see how the caste system works – WRs, RBs, CBs and Safeties magically disappear. If you look at high school football there are thousands of white athletes that should be granted the opportunity to play at the Division 1 level but are simply ignored because they are the wrong color.

I apologize for the long post but want to get this message out and also promote a site that supports white athletes, is full of members that know what is going on and tracks the discrimination. The site is http://www.castefootball.us

Here is a quick write up I did looking back at the 2001 and 2011 drafts. Their is very little deviation between them in terms of the percentage of white athletes drafted – 2001 was around 21% and 2011 around 23%. Any draft this century pretty much hovers around that mark.

Again, I just wanted to invite anyone who shares this same perspective and may even have personal experience to join the site.

This makes me laugh. Who cares what the effin NFL or ESPN say? I wasn’t aware anyone even watched either anymore.
Incidentally, if the new word of the week is “EQUITY” what does ESPN and Goodell say about a certain demographic being way over-represented in the NFL? How about some equity here. Just askin’

Lets just populate all sports by race if we are going with the equality and equity route. Lets use the census bureau numbers. I am good with this. I am just playing by the radical lefts rules.

White alone 76% or White alone not Hispanic or Latino 60%
Black 13%
Native/American Indian 1%
Asian 5%
Hispanic/Latino 18.5%

The guy does make an excellent point that I think we are all overlooking: the lines on the field are in fact white. And further they look a lot like the bars of a jail cell. The jail cell that has so many of my black brothers and sisters sitting in cause the color of their skin. I don’t think any brothers need to be playing in the NFL for whitey. Winter sports are out too.

Driving a racial divide is designed to keep blacks convinced they’re victims and to keep them on the demonrat “plantation”. The worst thing that could happen for the left is for blacks to lose their sense of “victimhood” and come to recognize the demonrat party as their enemy (which of course they are). Victimhood and dependency are the two most important lies for the leftists to promote to keep blacks marching in lockstep.

Quotas… yeah, like affirmative action for whites in sports. Can you imagine the reaction by black players as they were denied positions on teams because the team’s white quota hadn’t been met?! Ha!!

All sports are just modern-day circuses*especially NASCAR that the *Un-washed masses have needed for the last 5K years to relax from working; however, this is the first time in history that the *Un-washed masses are paying these blokes more than a sandwich a day. BIG Re-set coming down on these circus performers. Society can’t go on paying these simpletons this type of money or respect our BIG experience went down the wrong rabbit hole with these Blokes.

One of the reasons I dumped the Dish and refuse to go back to any type of TV was being forced by subscription to support ESPN and the leftist news channels. Not to mention having to pay to NOT watch football, etc.

I don’t watch ESPN and have no clue about any of the players they are talking about. I gave up watching several tears ago. Cut able becuase I did not want to be forced to pay for sh*tshows like these douche bags.

If this Max idiot really beleives this crap, then why does he not resign and force ESPN to backfill him with a minority. He is abusing his white privledge by talking a job from someone disadvantaged.

If you need to judge a qb by skin color… Well, Ok then, espn… In general terms, young black qbs are athletic and can scramble/run. They are not “students” of the game like white qbs who stay in the pocket, try to put the ball in receivers hands or throw balls out of bounds (aka make smart decisions). Defenses tend to adapt much more easily to qbs who run and can’t make audibles or reads. These qbs have short careers.

So if it is racist to have a predominate amount of white people at the oscars….why is it ok to have a predominate number of black people in football? Just asking. Doesn’t matter your role on the feild. NFL is saturated with people of color. Why aren’t we pushing for EOE here?

“Racism” is specific acts committed by specific individuals. The problem is that we as a society have accepted this notion of racism as being some nameless, faceless “systemic” problem that plagues all of us. That’s BS, and unless Max can tell me exactly “who” is acting racist in the mock drafts, he is BS too.

If you look at statistics then the NFL is systemically racist and has an entrenched Black Supremacy system that is inequitable. Time for some serious conversation and a diversity plan with quotas.

It has less to do with the color of his skin and more to do with the school he’s from. Name an OSU QB that has had a sustained successful NFL career. Yep—there are none. OSU plays Slippery Rock Community College that makes its players look like men among boys. Fields will fail in the NFL.

This is exactly the opposite opinion of when ESPN canned Rush Limbaugh back in the 00″s. Because Limbaugh said McNabb was over valued as a qb BECAUSE he was black. which i never agreed with, but Rush had the right to say it and not be attacked by a bunch of racist insurgent media, who think only white people should be criticized.
