It’s been a while since posting some news pieces that I discovered, but man, was I happy when I found out this video from The Advise Show.
To give you all some context, football player Kareem Hunt was in hot water for allegedly assaulting a white woman, but news surfaced that she called him and other Black people the N-word, so now the mainstream media is backing off after seeing that he was the victim in this situation. Social media ripped the MSM a new one when they exposed this abusive female.
On TV, Shannon Sharpe and some reporters talk about the Kareem Hunt situation, and something glorious happened. He verbally owns the female reporter who said that Kareem Hunt should face a lifetime ban. Sharpe calls out this double standard by saying that should be applied to doctors, lawyers, police officers, etc. if they did the same thing. Man, her body language just screamed “I just lost this argument” when he checked her.
I could care less about sports media, but that clip was freaking awesome. More people need to call out these bigoted double standards especially when they would NEVER do or say the same things about people of other races. Seriously, is she going to call out Ben Roethlisberger for the stuff he did? How about Peyton Manning for that sexual harassment case? Hey, maybe we can add women like Ronda Rousey or Hope Solo since they legit assaulted people (family members for the latter). Oh wait…she’s too much of a bigot and a coward to do those things with those examples.
How is it that whenever Black men do something bad (real or alleged), people want them to be fired and banned, but when a other people do the exact same thing, they get treated with kid gloves? Seriously, screw people’s racist hypocrisy! If you are offended by this, then something’s wrong with you and not me on this situation.
Good on you, Shannon Sharpe. I may not pay attention to sports or most mainstream media-related things, but you did a great job by dropping that truth bomb.
