I canNOT stop laughing at this Riley Cooper mess.
So...dude used that word and got caught on tape. Folks were saying it's no big deal, yada, yada, yada. Michael Vick even came out and was like...dude ain't a bad dude. Folks on the internet saying he was just keeping it reall and if that's how he felt at the moment so what, blah, blah, blah.
Then yesterday he was at practice...you know...playing football with a whole bunch of Black dudes and NOBODY would stand next to him when they weren't on the field in a play. Nobody talked to dude. Didn't look his way. Just pretended like dude didn't exist.
They kept it real.
NOW...the team has excused him from practice to attend sensitivity training. For keeping it real Riley Cooper style even though you play a VERY physical sport for a living with a lot of really big Black guys who are feeling some kinda way about you right now.
So here's what I'm wondering...how are they going to deal with Black football players using it? what if a Black guy says t in the locker room? Will he be excused as well? Can you separate the "way" someone says a word from the actual word in a situation like that which could possibly end the entire career of Riley Cooper?
Has the Eagle's coaching staff opened up a can of worms that can be corralled? Will this finally be the start of that word TRULY not being used by ANYONE?
What say you?
