Controversy Brews, Sparked By Seattle Seahawks Team Members’ Comments Regarding Quarterback Russell Wilson “NOT BEING BLACK ENOUGH”! Charles Barkley Weighs In… Making The Topic Go Viral! [VIDEO]
The subject of "Race" has interestingly become somewhat TABOO and somewhat of an EXTREMELY sensitive topic lately. Many don't want to discuss the topic, or believe the subject matter is irrelevant in today's society and believe that continuing to bring it up only reinforces and generates negativism regarding "Race".
Do you agree?... or ... Do you think the topic is worth continuing to discuss?
I'm always reluctant to write about News that involves "RACE" or possible "RACISM" because it seems "the messenger" is always the CULPRIT behind "Keeping Racism Alive". Well, that is certainly NOT my intent, and I will continue to cover SOME of the News Stories relative to "Race" because I think they are import topics of discussion that should not be brushed under the rug... but I certainly DO NOT post these News Stories for the purposes of "FUELING RACISM".
The latest of these topics concerns some African-American NFL Seattle Seahawks players speaking out to say that their "Fellow Black Quarterback" (Russell Wilson) is "NOT BLACK ENOUGH". The comments were exposed by Columnist Mike Freeman and subsequently led to comments made by Former NBA Star, Charles Barkley which REALLY STIRRED THINGS UP!!!!
Below are all the elements regarding what's going on... WATCH & LISTEN (BELOW) and tell me what you're take on all of this is:
