‘Tis the Season For Social Justice Messages on NFL Helmets, End Zones and Hats

Football season is upon us, despite liberal leadership’s cancel culture in full force

NFL Social Justice

Football season is upon us, despite liberal leadership’s cancel culture in full force. Stenciled in the helmets this year, players can choose from six phrases: “End Racism,” “Stop Hate,” “It Takes All of Us,” “Black Lives Matter,” “Inspire Change” and “Say their Stories.”

The end zones will read, for the second straight year, “It Takes All of Us” and “End Racism.” The league is also bringing back the “Say Their Stories” initiative and begin a new one where each team will “highlight its social justice work during a regular-season home game in Weeks 17 and 18.”

“We are committed to Inspire Change and the social justice work that inspires change for the long term,” said Anna Isaacson, NFL’s senior vice president of social responsibility. All of the initiatives “will provide a unified time frame for us to further amplify all of the work that our clubs are doing and that will lead into the playoffs where Inspire Change will continue to take center stage” added Isaacson. “The key message for us as the season is starting, we are ramping up again in a big way with our social justice work.”

End zone stencils will remain in place for all home games except when another specific cause is to be recognized, such as the Salute to Service game. “Salute To Service” will replace “End Racism” in one end zone and “It Takes All of Us” will still remain in the opposite end zone,

Another addition will be a knit hat that can be worn on the sidelines of Weeks 17 and 18 by players, coaches, and other personnel “to add visibility to the cause.” The hat will also be sold at retail, and “100% of the league’s proceeds will be donated to Inspire Change grant recipients.”

    Not watching NFL again for another year. It’s a shame they had to bring politics into the sport. I’ll stick with little league football & high school football.

Racist Rock: Boulder Removed from UW-Madison ‘Painful History of Discrimination’

Published

Rock

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is spending somewhere between $30,000 and $75,000 for good use; to move a rock. But not just any rock, no, this is a racist rock. “Chamberlin Rock, located on top of Observatory Hill, is named in honor of Thomas Crowder Chamberlin, a geologist and former university president” reports the Wisconsin State Journal.

However, “for some students of color on campus, the rock represents a painful history of discrimination” the article explains. The 70-ton boulder was removed from the “heart of campus” at 6:30 am Friday morning following demands from students over the past year.

The boulder will be moved to university-owned land southeast of Madison near Lake Kegonsa. In its place, the university plans to place a plaque to honor the former university president. Wisconsin State Journal reports:

The boulder was referred to as a “n——-head” — a commonly used expression in the 1920s to describe any large dark rock — at least once in a 1925 Wisconsin State Journal story. University historians have not found any other time that the term was used but said the Ku Klux Klan was active on campus at that time.

UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank approved the removal of Chamberlin Rock in January but the Wisconsin Historical Society needed to sign off on the rock’s removal because it was located within 15 feet of a Native American burial site…

… The Black Student Union led the call to remove the rock last summer. Nalah McWhorter, the group’s president and a UW-Madison senior, said in an interview this summer that the demands to remove the boulder had been around even before she arrived on campus three years ago.

“I’m grateful that we have had the opportunity to do this and that the rock will be removed,” she said. “It was our demand, and it was something that we put all the work in for.”

The Black Student Union worked with Wunk Sheek, an Indigenous student organization on campus, to lobby for the rock’s removal.

“We did all these presentations,” McWhorter said. “We went through all of these meetings during an academic year with a lot of other stuff going on, so the work really relied on us, as students, and as Black students.”

‘#NegotiationsSoWhite’: AOC and Cori Bush Denounce Bipartisan Infrastructure Group For Skin Color

Published

AOC

Far-left Democrat lawmakers, living up to the party’s long history of associating race and value, denounced the bipartisan group of Senators negotiating an infrastructure bill for the color of their skin.

“Is this the Bipartisan Infrastructure Group or the audience at a Kid Rock concert?” Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) tweeted, adding, “#NegotiationsSoWhite.”


“A lot of times, ‘bipartisan agreements’ are just as defined by who people in power agree to exclude than include,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tweeted.


“This from AOC, by the way, is not an argument. It is pure ad hominem that says noting about the bill or its merits,” senior writer at RealClearInvestigations Mark Hemingway
tweeted in response to Ocasio-Cortez.  “A healthy culture would repudiate her for judging legislation solely by the skin color of the people supporting it.”

The criticism of the members of the bipartisan group for the color of their skin comes a month before the anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech.

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character,” King said at the time.
