NFL’s Richard Sherman Condemns Black Lives Matter

Posted by Steve Markowitz on September 16, 2015

Richard ShermanOne of the best players in the National Football League is Seattle Seahawk’s Richard Sherman.  This brash-talking, hard-hitting defensive back is feared throughout the league by opposing teams.

Sherman is a wonderful American success story.  Coming from a disadvantaged background, he went on to attend Stanford University where he was a star football player and obtained a great education.  He parlayed this into success in the NFL.

Recently, Black Lives Matter activists King Noble used an unauthorized photograph of Sherman, adding to it a violent and racist message: “When are we gon Kill These KKKracka Bro.”  Sherman was livid and his response unequivocal, posting a response included below.  It is disappointing that President Obama is not as clear in his related statements to the American people.

Sherman’s post:

I did not believe this when I heard about it.  I watched your videos.  I started a life in the gehto [sic]. I banged like a fool till I woke up.  I was not suppressed by any man or woman, white or black.

I worked myself up from Compton High School to a scholarship at Standford University and I did it myself.  I take pride in what I have accomplished both as a black man, and an athlete.  I could have stayed in LA and banged and used drugs and thought that it was all the white mans fault [sic].  But that would be a lie.  We are who we want to be, that is what is great about america [sic].  We are all born with the same chances in life..white or black…YOU choose to be a woman-abusing racist loudmouth.  I would love to debate you on national tv [sic].  And if you condone senseless black shootings of whites and police officers, you better make that a debate on Springer, so I can bitchslap your ignorant ass!

You are what is keeping and making the black race look bad. Wake up fool.  Do not glorify this half a man, he has worked for nothing.  He chose to keep himself where he is, not the white people.  It is time to take responsibility for your own actions, and not act like a stinking fool.  Kids and young black men and women look at this site, and believe that they are abused.  That is a bold-faced lie.  It is out of the mouths of cheap thugs like you that are hurting our young and taking away the chances they have to make themselves a productive part of society.  Brothers and sisters: the only slavery in america now is the one you put yourself into Rise up like Doctor King as taught us, and be a real human being [sic].  We are all in this together white and black.  Peace to all and I hope this stupid fake hate stops real soon.  We are all brothers and sisters.  Do not be fooled by the tyranny of evil men like this lift yourself up educate yourselves and work hard for a good life [sic].  No one owes you anything stand proud as a person of color , and do something meaningful with your life [sic].  I did and I am the best at what I do!  Peace out, R Sherman.”
