“Reverend” Jesse Jackson, the infamous race-baiting glory hound, would like to have a long conversation with Texans owner Bob McNair.
When there was the inevitable flood of butt hurt after Texans’ team owner McNair said “We can’t have the inmates running the prison,” at a recent NFL owners meetings, Jackson saw the perfect opportunity to put himself in the spotlight again, and gave a highly divisive interview on the telephone Sunday with The Houston Chronicle.
Predictably, Jackson accused NFL team owners, including McNair, of having a “plantation mentality.”
Evading the fact that half of the NFL consists of convicted felons, justifying McNair’s comments, Jackson said that McNair should be sanctioned.
Despite McNair’s public and private apologies, the ingrate players still chose to throw a group tantrum on the sideline during the national anthem. McNair emphasized he was not speaking of players when he made his statement, but no one could blame him if he were.
Jackson claimed to have reached out to McNair and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and hasn’t heard back from them, and went on to suggest that the NFL should provide extensive details about closed-door meetings regarding the national anthem protests.
“They really should make the minutes of that meeting public,” Jackson said. “I understand there were some other things said that were just as bad from other owners. They have kind of a plantation mentality. The players are objectified in some sense.
Mr. McNair is a product of the South. They act like he’s a victim or misunderstood, but those players have made him a wealthy man.
“Mr. McNair said he’s sorry, but he also said what he said in an uninhibited way when he’s in a private meeting with the other owners. There should be some kind of sanctions. Other owners heard him talk that way and they shouldn’t condone that kind of talk.”
Jackson then deployed his perfected victim card, making it sound as if team owners were shunning him, then followed that up with his well-rehearsed plea for “equality” and “fairness”. Predictably, the same dead horses he’s been beating for decades.
“I reached out to Mr. McNair, I haven’t heard back from him,” Jackson said. “I reached out to Jerry Jones, I haven’t heard back from him. I would love to talk with him and Jerry Jones and put together a plan. There’s a way to to increase equality and put together a plan for fairness. This is a solvable problem.”
The master race-baiter Jackson applauded players, including former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, for their “courage in protesting” and suggested they take it further.
“The players should escalate their nonviolent protests,” Jackson said. “Donald Trump called them ‘sons of bitches.’ Kaepernick is not degrading the flag. He’s kneeling to pray, which is in our best tradition. If we had not knelt and prayed nonviolently, where would be today as a society?
“Blacks and whites couldn’t have played together and stayed together and celebrated together. If not for the civil rights movement, you couldn’t have had that team in Houston. We were successful in our protests and the walls came down.”
Of course, Jesse Jackson will never admit the role white Americans played in making racial equality happen in America, and that minorities are actually living in a favored status and have increased privilege through Affirmative Action, easier entrance into colleges, and the ability to play the race card at any moment to receive bonus minority privilege.
Just like the NFL players and Mr Jackson are doing right now.
