Report: Cooper had been contacted about video before it was released

Posted by Mike Florio on August 4, 2013, 10:07 AM EDT

Although Eagles receiver Riley Cooper has done a fairly admirable job of falling repeatedly on his sword regarding one of the NFL’s most unlikely off-field incidents, there’s one specific wrinkle in this story that makes us wonder whether he’s simply saying what he thinks he needs to say in order to make it all go away.

“The last few days have been incredibly difficult for me,” Cooper said in the Friday statement regarding his temporary (or possibly longer) departure from the team.  “My actions were inexcusable. The more I think about what I did, the more disgusted I get.”

That last sentence is the one that caught our eye.  Cooper didn’t utter a racial slur in a public place on Wednesday, when the video surfaced.  He said it on June 9.

Unless he was so drunk that he doesn’t remember saying it, how does the disgust not begin to grow until July 31, when the video became public?


Cooper supposedly learned of the video “a couple hours” before addressing it with reporters the day it surfaced.  According to CrossingBroad.com, the site that purchased the video for only $150, Cooper previously had been made aware of the video via Twitter.  Per the report, people “tweeted at” Cooper 10-to-15 times about the video since the middle of June; Cooper reportedly blocked two of the people who were sending Twitter messages to him about the video.

Regardless of whether the folks who had the video were trying to extort money from Cooper (like the guy who ended up getting 18 months in prison last year after pleading guilty to extorting Robert Griffin III), it’s hard to completely reconcile the tone and content of comments made by Cooper after the video surfaced with the notion that he knew about the video before it was released.  Given that Cooper’s perceived sincerity will be a key factor in whether the locker room can move forward, that could be a subtle yet important point for one or more of his teammates.

And if Cooper had a chance to buy the video before it was released, maybe he should have.  After the Griffin incident occurred last year, a league source told PFT that extortion attempts happen “[m]ore often than you realize.”  In many cases, the player who is being extorted pays the money and moves on.

If the video netted only $150 from CrossingBroad.com, Cooper likely could have had it for not much more than that.  Given everything that has happened since the video surfaced, it could have been the best investment Cooper ever made.

Civil rights activists remain silent on Florida school bus beating video

A viral video showing the beating of a 13-year-old white boy by three African-American youths in Florida has left hundreds of thousands of viewers horrified, but critics say the case doesn't seem to be attracting much sympathy from self-styled civil rights activists.
 
In the chilling video, three 15-year-old boys repeatedly beat and kick a victim police said was left with a broken arm and two black eyes.
 
Although Florida came under fire in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting and George Zimmerman's acquittal by activists Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson - who called it an "apartheid state" - neither has spoken publicly about the bus incident. But one reason the case has not become as racially charged as other attacks may be that many news outlets have either not shown the first few seconds, before the victim goes down behind a seat, and others blur out his face to the point his race is no longer apparent.
 
The bus driver, 64-year-old John Moody, can be heard frantically calling a radio dispatcher for help, although he was criticized in some quarters for not physically intervening.
 
"No, you've got to get somebody here quick, quick, quick," Moody pleads on his phone as the assailants take turns landing windmill punches and vicious kicks on the cowering victim. "They about to beat this boy to death over here."
 



"They about to beat this boy to death over here."
 
- Florida bus driver John Moody
 

The attack took place July 9 in the St. Petersburg-area community of Gulfport. But the horrific cell phone and surveillance video only came out only recently. Police say the three youths, all African-American, attacked the boy after he told officials at their dropout prevention school that one of them had tried to sell him marijuana.
 
Most of the focus has so far been on Moody, who retired two weeks after the incident. Moody went on CNN earlier this week to defend himself.
 
"Me jumping in the middle of that fight with three boys, it would have been more dangerous for other students on the bus for as myself," he told Morgan. "There's just no telling what might have happened."
 
Moody stopped the bus, and police said the suspects used the emergency exit of the bus to escape. Joshua Reddin, Julian McKnight, and Lloyd Khemradj, all 15 years old, were arrested a short time later. All three were charged with aggravated battery and have since been released. Reddin is also charged with unarmed robbery.
 
Pinellas County school policy does not require a driver to intervene and prosecutors have said Moody will not face charges, but Gulfport Police Chief Robert Vincent told WFLA that Moody should have stepped in.
 
"There was clearly an opportunity for him to intervene and or check on the welfare of the children or the child in this case, and he didn't make any effort to do so," Vincent said.

Man in coma after black mob of 50 pummels him
 
'She saw them strip him of his pants and go through the pockets'


Al and Jessie probably high fived when they heard this one

St. Paul, Minn., man is in a coma today, fighting for his life after a black mob beat him, stripped his clothes off and left him for dead. Even if he recovers, he will have permanent brain damage.

Ray Widstrand thought he had nothing to fear from moving into a black neighborhood on the East Side of St. Paul. This young white guy and aspiring filmmaker thought he had nothing to fear when he decided to take a Sunday night stroll through his adopted part of town.
 
Nothing to fear from a crowd of 50 black people fighting outside a nearby party. So he stopped to check it out. Soon, however, the mob’s attention turned on him.
 
“The first person who struck him had hit him with a can in a sock,” said one witness in a police report. “The man went down and a ‘whole bunch of little eastside boys’ began to kick the man. She saw them strip him of his pants and go through the pockets.”
 
When police arrived, the black mob scattered, leaving only Ray behind.
 
“He had blood coming from his nose and mouth and was unresponsive,” said the police report. “As of August 8th, the prognosis for recovery is slight, and should he live, he will suffer permanent and protracted loss of brain function.”
 
Four black people have been arrested so far.

oooh, seems Oreily is taking racist and hate monger the Rev Shakedown artist Al Sharpton to task.  Cheesy

Things Just Got Real Personal in Feud Between Bill O’Reilly and Al Sharpton

Bill O’Reilly took his feud with Al Sharpton to the next level on Thursday, alleging that the so-called civil rights leader came to him and asked for money to benefit his broke Harlem charity a few years ago, a request that O’Reilly was happy to grant. But that hasn’t prevented Sharpton from going on MSNBC and slamming the conservative TV host as anti-poor and even insinuating that he is a racist.
 
O’Reilly began on Thursday by claiming Sharpton lied about a report he did on food stamp fraud when he took his comments completely out of context. On his show Tuesday, Sharpton accused O’Reilly of attacking the poor after he did a report about a healthy man receiving food stamps so he can surf all day and not have to worry about employment.
 
“Sharpton, obviously taking my comments totally out of context, not even mentioning Jason the surfer and basically not telling the truth once again,” O’Reilly responded on Thursday.

He then dropped the “crusher” about Sharpton, who he says has been portraying him as a “racist and a brutalizer of the poor.”
 
“A few years ago, Sharpton told me that his charity in Harlem, N.Y., was out of money and that it could not provide Christmas presents and Christmas dinner to hundreds of poor people in Harlem,” O’Reilly explained. “So I gave Sharpton a $25,000 donation to prove the gifts and food.”
 
“I never mentioned it, because it wasn’t necessary to mention it. But now it is. To prove exactly what kind of person Sharpton is,” he added.

Apparently, FOX News chief Roger Ailes has close ties to Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton...

http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/kincaid/130814
August 14, 2013

Fox News goes gay: a presentation on "The Rise and Fall of Fox News" at August 20 ASI conference in D.C.

Excerpt:

At the August 20 conference, ASI President Kincaid will himself narrate a PowerPoint presentation on "The Rise and Fall of Fox News," focusing on how the channel has gradually abandoned its viewer base and why conservatives should look elsewhere for news and information. Acknowledging that the channel began and succeeded as a platform for conservative voices ignored by the major media, Kincaid will nevertheless explain why he is troubled by a series of liberal hires at the channel and a new book that documents Ailes' relationships with civil rights agitators Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. He will also discuss the real reason why Glenn Beck was fired from the channel. To cover or attend the conference, which is being held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., please contact Phil Kent at (404) 226-3549 and/or philkent@philkent.com

A Department of Homeland Security manager in charge of buying weapons and ammunition for the government is, on the side, running an inflammatory website that throws around gay slurs and advocates the mass murder of "whites" and the "ethnic cleansing" of "Uncle Tom race traitors," according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Ayo Kimathi, who calls himself the “Irritated Genie,” told his supervisors that the website was set up to sell concert and lecture videos.

But the report showed the site's content strayed far beyond concert promotion, warning about a coming race war. His website, “War on the Horizon,” declares, “in order for Black people to survive the 21st century, we are going to have to kill a lot of whites – more than our Christian hearts can possibly count,” the Alabama-based SPLC said in its report.

One of Kimathi’s former supervisors at DHS told SPLC’s Hatewatch that, “Everybody is the office is afraid of him,” and that his co-workers are “afraid he will come in with a gun and someday go postal.”

The supervisor, who was not named, continued, “I am astounded he’s employed by the federal government, let alone Homeland Security.”
Kimathi, who works for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which is a division of DHS, reportedly got the go-ahead from the government to create and maintain his website.

That’s because as a law enforcement agency employee, he is required to get permission in writing if he engages in outside activities which includes everything from working a second job to volunteering.

The SPLC says Kimathi obtained official permission but did it by misrepresenting the true nature of his site.

“He told management that it was an entertainment website selling videos of concerts and lectures,” the report said. “He called it simply WOH, never saying that WOH stood for War on the Horizon.”

ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen said in a written statement that the agency “does not condone any type of hateful rhetoric or advocacy of violence of any kind against anyone.”

It is not known what disciplinary actions, if any, will be taken against Kimathi.

“Every ICE employee is held to the highest standard of professional and ethical conduct. Accusations of misconduct are investigated thoroughly and if substantiated, appropriate actions in taken," she said.

Kimathi's site even includes President Obama, who is technically his boss, on its own enemies list.

According to the WOH website, the organization was “created for the purpose of preparing black people worldwide for an unavoidable, inevitable clash with the white race. Whites around the world are absolutely determined to exterminate Afrikan people in all corners of the earth."

The mission statement also claims to prepare blacks intellectually, spiritually, psychologically and physically for “a global clash that will mean the end of white rule on this planet or the end of the black race as we know it.”

Calls to WOH for comment by FoxNews.com were not immediately returned.

Is the Media Covering Up the Beginnings of a Race War?

No national debate over spate of black on white crimes

Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones
Infowars.com
August 23, 2013

Despite engaging in a seemingly endless and racially-charged national debate about the Trayvon Martin case, the US corporate media has shown no interest in reviving this obsession despite a spate of black on white murders, at least two of which indicate a racially-charged hate crime motivation behind the killings.

Image: Chris Lane.

George Zimmerman’s acquittal last month drew a line under nearly 18 months of hand-wringing over the threat posed to black people by racially-charged hate crimes. Black ideologues like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and others were constantly in the headlines holding up the Trayvon case as a dire warning that African-Americans could now be targeted for murder merely as a result of the color of their skin.

In light of several high profile black on white murders in recent days, the invective has been noticeably less verbose. The most anger Jesse Jackson could muster over the gang-initiation hate crime slaying of Australian student Chris Lane was a tepid tweet stating that the incident should be “frowned upon.”

Lane was slaughtered by a gunshot to the back as part of a gang initiation by three juveniles, an incident which the media initially tried to downplay as “bored teens.” Two of the suspects are black. It subsequently emerged that one of the suspects had posted racist tweets on his account before the murder, stating “90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM.” Another reads, “Ayeee I knocced out 5 woods since Zimmerman court!.” “Woods” is a racist term for white people.

Barack Obama, who personally inserted himself into the Trayvon Martin case on two separate occasions, was “not familiar” with Lane’s murder, according to the White House.

Meanwhile, in Spokane Washington, 88-year-old World War Two veteran Delbert Belton, who survived being wounded during the Battle of Okinawa, did not survive a brutal beating carried out by two black teens outside a pool hall.

Image: Delbert Belton.

As one respondent to the story remarked, “If this had been 2 white kids beating up an old black dude, it’d be all over the national news by now.”

The story has received local attention but comparatively little national coverage, despite the Drudge Report prominently linking the story. Drudge has consistently highlighted the problem of black on white crime over the last few years and been attacked for doing so.

The national media has also largely ignored what could be the most shocking story out of all three – the apparent “Trayvon-revenge” killing of David Santucci in downtown Memphis by three African-Americans named Mario Patterson, Dondre Johnson and Jerrica Norfleet.

According to Santucci’s brother Miguel De Diago, police are covering up the fact that the murder was a racist hate crime and that Santucci was killed because he was white in revenge for George Zimmerman’s acquittal. Although authorities claim the murder was motivated by robbery, nothing was taken from Santucci, he still had his wallet, keys and cell phone on him after being shot dead.

These three murders all occurred within the last two weeks, but the press attention they have received in comparison to the Trayvon case has been virtually non-existent.

Trayvon Martin supporters have made the claim that these murders have not sparked a national debate because the culprits were arrested and charged, unlike George Zimmerman who was initially released.

However, this misses the point entirely. During Zimmerman’s trial, no racially-based motivation for the shooting was uncovered, yet a national debate about race ensued. In at least two of these cases, there are clear indications that two white men were indeed the victims of racist hate crime, yet the outrage has been comparatively muted.

Image: Murder suspects.

As Pat Buchanan highlights, “interracial violence is overwhelmingly black-on-white,” yet the national debate over the Trayvon Martin case would suggest the opposite. The media is deliberately avoiding difficult questions about why black culture encourages broken homes and criminal behavior in preference of manufacturing the myth that blacks are under some kind of endemic hate crime assault from whites.

In reality, crime statistics drawn from Justice Department and FBI figures show that “Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit violent crime against a white person than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.”

Facts cannot be labeled “racist”. The deliberate policy of the national media in hyping the idea that blacks face a growing hate crimes threat from whites – when it clearly appears that the opposite is true – means the genuine problem of black violence and how to address its root causes for the benefit of all Americans no matter what their skin color is being buried.

I think it's creating strive and hostility then literal war. I could seen that being the way forty years ago. But now I think it'll just make people think a savior needs to come to solve these racial problems. Though a savior already came, the one they reject, the one that paid for the sins on the cross.

As a white man I will admit racism still exists by some white people as well. Their stories are more often, then not, in the news though.

I remember in my college Sociology class, my professor said how the reason racism still exists today, is b/c black and white children's parents alike are still teaching hostility toward the other races to their kids.

Pt being that even public schools are doing their part to subtlely spread this propaganda too. Seriously, either my professor is completely deluded, or he was making it up out of thin air b/c he was lecturing so much and had to say something.

And don't forget all of the entertainment stuff like the tv/movie and music industry that is doing their part too. The way they're pulling it off is very subtle.

‘I Don’t Know What to Think’ About White House’s Silence on Chris Lane Killing, Says Oklahoma Governor

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin said on Sunday she thinks it would be a “nice gesture” for President Obama to speak out about the tragic murder of Australian student Chris Lane.
 
“What do you make of the silence of people like Al Sharpton, and, quite frankly, the silence of the president?” Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday, asked Fallin.
 
“I don’t know what to think about that,” Fallin replied. “It would be nice if our nation were to certainly express their condolences.”
 
Wallace, pressed Fallin again, highlighting how the president vocally spoke out about the Trayvon Martin shooting.
 
“I think it would be a nice gesture for him to do that, especially since the country of Australia has expressed their sentiments,” Fallin responded.

At RNC event, speaker says African Americans have taken a back seat to gays, immigrants

The Republican National Committee commemorated the 50th anniversary of the March of Washington and Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech with a luncheon Monday.
 
The most rousing speech of the luncheon came from Bob Woodson, the head of the Center for Neighborhood Enterprises. Woodson criticized black leaders over Trayvon Martin, the black Florida teen who was shot to death by George Zimmerman. Zimmerman was acquitted in Martin’s death. Woodson, who is black, said groups including gays and immigrants have been prioritized over poor black people in American society.
 
“Everybody has come in front of them on the bus — gays, immigrants, women, environmentalists,” Woodson said. “You never hear any talk about the conditions confronting poor blacks and poor people in general.”

Woodson also criticized the “moral traitors” who mourned the death of Martin but not Chris Lane, the Australian baseball player who prosecutors allege was shot to death in Oklahoma by three boys, two whom are black.
 
Conservatives have strongly criticized black leaders like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for treating the cases of Martin and Hale differently.
 
Woodson said King would mourn for both equally.
 
“If Dr. King were alive today, he would not be just talking about justice for Trayvon Martin,” Woodson said. ”He would also give a prayer for this 18-year-old man, this little baby, who was shot in the face by two black kids.

“We should pray for the families of these people just as we do the family of Trayvon Martin. We should not wait for a white face before we get outraged. Evil is evil, whether it wears a white face or not.”
 
Recognizing that strong reaction to his words, Woodson didn’t back down.
 
“I’m sorry to be the skunk at the garden party, but I think if Dr. King were alive today, he would step on some of these sacred issues,” Woodson said.
 
At the end of his remarks, Woodson was greeted with a standing ovation.
 
Other speakers at the event include King’s niece, Alveda King, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.).

Oh really?  Roll Eyes

How about taking a look at your own community and tell me that African Americans are taking charge of their own community. Where are all those father's at? ALL these years whining for special attention and getting it, and yet the black community is as big a disaster as ever, and it sure isn't because they don't get public assistance!

How about complaining to your fellow black business executives, entertainers, and athletes. Seems they are doing financially just fine.

In less than a dozen rich blacks, the community could raise $1 billion in a second to assist with those poor black kids. Surely the rich African Americans would toss some cash to their own wouldn't they?

Yeah, right! Hasn't happened yet, has it?

You first need to complain to your own seeing you choose to take the race angle.

Hypocrites.

http://news.yahoo.com/zimmerman-lawyer-ask-florida-pay-300-000-legal-042625962.html

Zimmerman lawyer to ask Florida to pay up to $300,000 in legal costs: report
8/27/13

(Reuters) - George Zimmerman, whose acquittal in the shooting death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin sparked protests across the United States, will ask Florida to pay up to $300,000 of his legal expenses, his attorney told the Orlando Sentinel on Monday.

Zimmerman will rely on state law that allows a defendant who has been found not guilty to be reimbursed for costs associated with a case, the paper reported.

Mark O'Mara, attorney for the 29-year-old Zimmerman, will soon prepare a motion seeking authorization of the payments and will submit that to the judge who presided over the case, the lawyer told the Orlando Sentinel on Monday evening.

O'Mara could not be reached for comment.

Zimmerman could not recoup attorney fees under the law, but he could seek costs related to the trial such as expenditures for expert witnesses and an animated video that defense attorneys showed jurors, the Orlando Sentinel reported. The costs could range between $200,000 and $300,000, the paper said.

Zimmerman, who is white and Hispanic, was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter on July 13 in Florida after a racially charged trial in the shooting of Martin, a 17-year-old African-American, in February 2012. Thousands of people demonstrated across the United States after the verdict.

Zimmerman was a volunteer neighborhood watchman in the central Florida town of Sanford, Florida, at the time of the shooting and said he acted in self-defense.

NYPD: Man Brain-Dead Following Random Rampage In Union Square

Witness: Suspect Vowed To Attack 'Next White Person Who Walks By'


It came out of nowhere.
 
A man allegedly went on a rampage in Union Square on Wednesday afternoon and left a complete stranger brain-dead in the process.
 
Police said that the attack may have been a hate crime.
 
Friends of Jeffrey Babbitt, 62, were shocked to hear about the random act of violence that left the gentle, retired train conductor in a coma, CBS 2′s Dave Carlin reported on Friday.
 
“I don’t believe that. I don’t know why that happened. He is very nice,” Igor Sapozhnikov said.
 
Babbitt was minding his own business as he walked through the crowd near the chess boards in Union Square when a man made a hateful announcement and began his rampage, witnesses said.
 
“He said ‘the next white person who walks by I’m going to [expletive],’” one woman said. “His fist went in and the man’s head bobbed and he hit the ground and you could hear his skull hitting the ground.”
 
The man continued his rampage before demanding to see police officers.
 
“He stood there and hit two more people and asked for the police to come,” Michael Benson said.
 
Stunned witnesses counted a total of three people attacked. The suspect, Lashawn Marten, 31, remained at the scene until police arrived.
 
Babbitt was on the ground with blood flowing from his head. Nearby were two other victims icing their faces.

Because of Marten’s alleged comments about targeting white people the incident could result in hate crime charges in addition to felony assault charges, according to Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.

“Obviously our Hate Crimes Task Force is involved in aspects of that case,” Kelly said.
 
Witnesses said they were amazed at the brazen, public nature of the assault.
 
“This is such a crowded area. You’d expect it in a back alley, but there are so many people here. That’s the strange part,” Garrett Browning said.
 
Babbitt was taken to Bellevue Hospital. Family and friends said that he is in a coma and has been declared brain-dead.
 
His 92-year-old mother, Hedda, was by his side. She shared a Sheepshead Bay apartment with her son. He was her primary caregiver.

National Media Completely Ignore NY Man Left Brain Dead By Attacker Shouting 'I Hate White People'

NewsBusters asked Saturday if the media will report a New York man becoming brain dead as a result of an unprovoked attacked by a man saying "I hate white people."
 
So far with the exception of local New York coverage, the answer is a resounding "No."
 
Analyses of Google News, LexisNexis, and closed-caption transcripts found absolutely no national reporting of Jeffrey Babbitt, the 62-year-old retired train conductor now in a coma at Bellevue Hospital.
 
Not one word on ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, or NBC.
 
Potentially even more curious, the largest newspaper in New York, the New York Times, appears to have not reported this attack despite it occurring in its own backyard.
 
If Babbitt were black, and his assailant shouted "I hate black people" before inflicting what appears will be a death blow, would America's media be so disinterested?
 
Or would this be headline news much like what we saw with Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman?
 
Sadly, we all know the answer as our media have once again shown that they are only interested in white on black hate crimes.
 
The other variety just don't fit the agenda.
 
*****Update: It turns out the New York Times did report this matter at its website Friday and in print Saturday. Unfortunately, the name of the assailant was wrong and the article didn't include Babbitt's. That's why it appeared this event had gone unreported.
 
Readers are advised the errant report was a total of 152 words buried on page 21.
 
I guess that's the importance the Times gives to black on white hate crimes.

Parents Upset After Trayvon Martin Day Planned During Local Homecoming Week

Parents were upset after Carrick High School approved a plan to have a Trayvon Martin theme day during the school’s homecoming.
 
The homecoming committee, and school voted and approved the theme which is part of school spirit week.
 
Parents were upset that kids were being encouraged to wear hoodies to school during the Wednesday theme.

The 17-year-old’s shooting death let loose a firestorm of protests in February of 2012. Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in February 2012 in Sanford, Florida.
 
Tensions have since eased and headlines have faded, but at Carrick High School, Martin’s memory has not. And to commemorate Martin, students planned to wear hoodies to make it a positive thing.
 
But it was not seen as positive by all.


 
“I am a little worried about that with the different people, how they’re going to react,” said parent Jennifer Kagle.
 
“If they want to wear the hoodies to represent him and the kind of person he was, they should do it,” said parent Bruce Bergener.
 
Student Bryan Bergener said, “A lot of people were complaining, like, the school advisers to change it.”
 
It brought up some controversy to the point where there were people giving mixed signals about it,” said Homecoming Committee member Javon Jordan.
 
After getting numerous complaints, the school now says the theme has been cancelled.
 
Mondays’ theme is bright color day, Tuesday’s theme is twins dress alike day, and Wednesday is now Bucco hat day.
 
“So we just used Bucco Day to put everybody together, put everybody as a whole,” Jordan said.

Of course it was Obama that started this as another distraction to all his problems in Washington..

Racism of Sports Logos Put Into Context By American Indian Group

 An American Indian organization has shed new light on the context of how offensive and racist sports team images like the Cleveland Indians and Washington Redskins is to their community.

The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) published a powerful poster featuring two baseball hats that each have a stereotypical racist image of a Jewish man and Chinese man to show it has the same connotation as the Cleveland Indians. The hats were titled “New York Jews” and “San Francisco Chinamen.”

The quote on the poster reads, ”No race, creed or religion should endure the ridicule faced by the Native Americans today. Please help us put an end to this mockery and racism by visiting www.ncai.org“.

The organization has spent years trying to get offensive sports team names and logos changed like the Cleveland Indians and Washington Redskins professional teams.

President Barack Obama said Saturday he would consider getting rid of the Washington Redskins name if he owned the team.
He just interjected that out of no where... and now the media will run with this as far as they can

Jefferson Keel, President of the NCAI told the Indian Country Today Media Network that President Obama’s remarks last week “underscore the fact that has become increasingly obvious.

“[That name] originated in the bounty paid for Native body parts and human flesh. It does not honor Native people in any way, and has no place in modern American society,” he explained to the network.

Keel also shared that the word Redskins is a racial slur to the Native American community and that it is very offensive.

But the thoughts and beliefs of native people are the basis of the debate over changing the team name. And looking across the breadth of Native America — with 2 million Indians enrolled in 566 federally recognized tribes, plus another 3.2 million who tell the Census they are Indian — it’s difficult to tell how many are opposed to the name.

The NFL has said it will meet with an Indian tribe pushing for the Redskins to drop the nickname, although NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he did not know if he or whether owner Dan Snyder would attend.

That group, the Oneida Indian Nation, held a symposium on the topic in Washington on Monday, timed to coincide with the NFL meetings.

At Monday’s session, a member of Congress, Minnesota Democrat Betty McCollum, said the league and team are “promoting a racial slur” and “this issue is not going away.”

After Goodell’s news conference Tuesday, a spokesman for the Oneida Indian Nation, Joel Barkin, issued a statement that read, in part: “The fact is that the league will not truly be listening to critics of this racial slur unless its commissioner gets personally involved.”

EXCLUSIVE OPINION: Man Falsely Accused of **** by Sharpton: Advertisers Must Drop Support

 "How can any type of commercial advertiser be comfortable with having Al Sharpton as a spokesperson?"


Steven Pagones is a former Assistant District Attorney in the State of New York. He became the victim of Al Sharpton’s defamatory smear campaign to label him a rapist of 15-year-old black girl Tawana Brawley in 1987. Now he speaks out at Truth Revolt. To help stop advertiser support for Sharpton, sign our petition:
 
In November of 1987, 15-year-old African-American girl Tawana Brawley went missing. When she was found, it is alleged that she began telling people that she had been approached, kidnapped, raped, sodomized, and her body scrawled on with human feces by individuals whom she supposedly described as resembling white police officers. Law enforcement officials began working with her, but she soon enlisted the efforts of attorneys Alton Maddox, Vernon Mason, and a then-obscure supposed civil rights leader named Al Sharpton.
 
Soon thereafter, all cooperation between the Brawley camp and law enforcement was cut off.
 
I remember very clearly the day I was first accused of being involved in the kidnaping and **** of Tawana Brawley. I was preparing to attend a Christening on a Sunday when my phone rang. I picked up the phone, and the person asked if I was Steve Pagones; it was a media member inquiring about team Brawley’s allegations about me. I didn’t know what he was talking about. Then he dropped the bombshell: the Brawley team had said I was responsible for raping Brawley. I stammered, disbelieving, “That’s absurd. There’s not a shred of truth to it.” For the next 24 hours, my phone didn’t stop ringing. I was on the front page of every major newspaper in the state, and many across the country. It was simply unbelievable that the allegations had been made – and that the Brawley team made them without any evidence or support whatsoever. As soon as his charges hit the media, I had to hire around-the-clock security. I received death threats on the phone, in the mail. I had to hire armed guards for my family, for my property. My whole life was turned upside down.
 
Worse, because of the atmosphere and the race-baiting going on, I had to prove my innocence, as opposed to anyone having to prove my guilt. It was draining, emotionally and physically. Eventually, a grand jury found not only that I hadn’t had anything to do with whatever happened to Brawley, but that the entire story was a hoax.
 
It was deeply horrible for me and my family – and it was especially horrible dealing with someone like Sharpton, who knows no bounds, who has no concern for responsibility or decency, and who has no intention of providing accountability for the damage that he does. Sharpton’s decision to spew hatred and outrageous lies about me and about law enforcement was a crucial one – I realized there was no stopping him but by suing him. I had two goals: holding Sharpton accountable, and clearing the record. So I brought a defamation suit against Sharpton, as well as Maddox and Mason. It took almost ten years to get them into court; they did everything they could to delay, to fight, to exhaust me. When we did go to court in 1997, a trial that should have taken a month at the most ended up taking eight. A judgment was rendered, and I was legally vindicated.
 
But Sharpton was never really held accountable for what he did. You can watch him every night on MSNBC. He visits President Obama at the White House. Matt Lauer interviews him on NBC’s Today Show. And advertisers pay his salary.
 
I don’t think very highly of MSNBC to begin with. But in spite of that, I was dumbfounded over their decision to hire Sharpton. Look at his history, his rhetoric, the damage to race relations that he caused -- not only in my case but in other matters he was responsible for escalating – and now they’ve given him a platform anyway, a platform from which he can push his hatred. It may be disguised hatred, but it’s hatred nonetheless. I can’t help but question the philosophy and honesty of any network or advertiser that can give him access to such a huge audience.
 
And I truly do not understand those companies that choose to advertise with Sharpton. I would like to think that when an advertiser spends money, it wants to be involved with a person who has a history of integrity, who has a history of telling the truth. Sharpton doesn’t represent any of those ideas. How can any type of commercial advertiser be comfortable with having Al Sharpton as a spokesperson? While it is true that Sharpton has on occasion served a legitimate purpose in representing individuals who may have been harmed, that should not allow him to get away with the statements he has made about me and the damage he has caused to others; the media and advertisers should not be allowed to rehabilitate Sharpton without him providing any honesty and accountability. I have a hard time viewing Al Sharpton as a civil rights activist. I view Al Sharpton as being nothing more than an opportunist and a race-baiter.
 
I’m not looking for, nor do I expect an apology from someone like Al Sharpton. Rather, what I hope to see -- and what I hope the networks and advertisers would push for -- would be for Sharpton to admit that he now knows that Steve Pagones and the other individuals he lied about had nothing to do with whatever happened to Brawley. In my opinion, until Sharpton comes clean about the things that he’s done in the past -- until he’s able to confront his demons and set the record straight -- he’ll never gain the legitimacy he’s hoping to gain. He’ll always have that history, no matter how much the media try to rehabilitate him. He’ll always have to live with the Tawana Brawley story, with the damage that he caused to race relations. That’s going to be his legacy.

Bob Costas: Redskins Name Undeniably a ‘Slur’
10/13/13

NBC Sports anchor Bob Costas weighed in forcefully Sunday on the controversy over the nature of the Washington Redskins’ name, which has stirred debate amid the  NFL team’s refusal to change its moniker.

In his half-time essay segment during NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” telecast of the Redskins-Dallas Cowboys game, Costas parsed the uproar over the Redskins and other sports franchise names that have been seen as insensitive in the modern era to various minority groups.

He noted that some teams have adjusted their names over the year’s in light of modern-day sensitivities, including other teams dubbed “Redskins,” a derogatory term for Native Americans.

Costas, an influential voice in the sports world, acknowledged that the name is used with “benign” intent in the present day by the team and its owner, Daniel Snyder. But he left no doubt about his reasoning on why there is a public campaign to pressure the team to change the name.

“Think for a moment about the term ‘Redskins,’ and how it truly differs from all the others.  Ask yourself what the equivalent would be, if directed toward African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians, or members of any other ethnic group,” Costas said.

“When considered that way, ‘Redskins’ can’t possibly honor a heritage, or noble character trait, nor can it possibly be considered a neutral term.  It’s an insult, a slur, no matter how benign the present-day intent. It is fair to say that for a long time now, and certainly in 2013, no offense has been intended. But, if you take a step back, isn’t it clear to see how offense “might” legitimately be taken?”

Here is a full transcript of Costas’ remarks, provided by NBC:

With Washington playing Dallas here tonight, it seems like an appropriate time to acknowledge the ongoing controversy about the name “Redskins.”

Let’s start here. There is no reason to believe that owner Daniel Snyder, or any official or player from his team, harbors animus toward Native Americans or wishes to disrespect them. This is undoubtedly also true of the vast majority of those who don’t think twice about the longstanding moniker. And in fact, as best can be determined, even a majority of Native Americans say they are not offended.

But, having stipulated that, there’s still a distinction to be made. Objections to names like “Braves,” “Chiefs,” “Warriors,” and the like strike many of us as political correctness run amok. These nicknames honor, rather than demean. They are pretty much the same as “Vikings,” “Patriots,” or even “Cowboys.” And names like “Blackhawks,” “Seminoles,” and “Chippewas,” while potentially more problematic, can still be okay provided the symbols are appropriately respectful – which is where the Cleveland Indians with the combination of their name and “Chief Wahoo” logo have sometimes run into trouble.

A number of teams, mostly in the college ranks, have changed their names in response to objections. The Stanford Cardinal and the Dartmouth Big Green were each once the Indians; the St. John’s Redmen have become the Red Storm, and the Miami of Ohio Redskins – that’s right, Redskins – are now the Red Hawks.

Still, the NFL franchise that represents the nation’s capital has maintained its name.  But think for a moment about the term “Redskins,” and how it truly differs from all the others.  Ask yourself what the equivalent would be, if directed toward African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians, or members of any other ethnic group.

When considered that way, “Redskins” can’t possibly honor a heritage, or noble character trait, nor can it possibly be considered a neutral term.  It’s an insult, a slur, no matter how benign the present-day intent. It is fair to say that for a long time now, and certainly in 2013, no offense has been intended. But, if you take a step back, isn’t it clear to see how offense “might” legitimately be taken?

Bob Costas needs to take a look at Keith Olbermann and all his political rants that he did on the NFL air. NFL fans dont care one whit about the MSM Liberal political agenda and frankly they dont want to hear about it. The NFL should get rid of Bob, it isnt the place for you Liberal media bias as much as you try to make NFL fans liberals most arent.

Oh and Bob, I live in North East Ohio, and i have Sioux Indian in my heritage, and we arent getting rid of the Cleveland Indians or Chief Wahoo, no matter how many times they let us down.  Tongue
