In response to DeadAhead2's comment:
Oh god. He's a disgrace. I used to work with a cousin of his. Even he is embarrassed by his cousin's antics.
The race baiting antics by Jesse Jackson, Sharpton, etc, are a disgrace. No one cares what the skin color is, it's a slang term for a crappy person who promotes violence to solve problems or issues that they may have.
Aaron Hernandez is a thug, for example, and he's not black.
Yep. Well said.
It's not a skin color, it's a mentality. The black community needs to smarten up and stop looking for excuses, they just look stupid.
If I'm Sharpton or James I give I tell Richard Sherman this little peice of advice:
If you want people to say your the best corner in the game, let them say it, not you.
If you want people to recognize/respect the fact that you got all A's in high school, graduated from Stanford etc..then act like you did.
It's too bad, he's a heck of a football player, playing in the Super Bowl and people associate him with the behavior of a thug. Right or wrong, they do, and it's his own doing.
Perhaps if leaders in the black community would speak out more about the actions of their own instead of making excuses for those actions, they would serve their race better. Al Sharpton and Jesse James to me have zero credibilty.
