Former ESPN contributor Jason Whitlock penned a very interesting op-ed in OutKick this week that is worthy of reading.
In the current climate, it will be interesting to see how his fellow African-Americans perceive his words because they are far from the liberal narrative the left is pitching.
After seeing the leaked video footage from the George Floyd arrest, Whitlock believes strongly the racial narrative was a hoax.
Now We Know
To be clear, nobody is saying that Chauvin kneeling on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes was right.
What we are saying, though, is that some of the actions taken by officers are now far more understandable now that we have seen more than a security camera snippet with no sound.
Whitlock touches on all of this in his op-ed, stating, “The video does not justify officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes.
“But it does offer context why Chauvin would be reluctant to believe Floyd’s “I can’t breathe” cries.
“Nearly every word out of Floyd’s mouth was a desperate lie.”
Whitlock also calls out leadership among all the major sports for buying into the narrative very early on turning sports, the great unifier, into something polarizing, now the great divider.
Our major sports are now directly responsible for creating a larger racial divide in the country, yet the heads of these sports won’t care because they are insulated.
Whitlock also goes after Lebron James for his role in perpetrating this fraud against the American people.
He concludes, “When those riots happen, the Three Stooges, LeBron James, Colin Kaepernick and all the other entitled millionaires will be locked in their gated bubbles watching poor people’s lives destroyed on CNN.”
