Barring further idiocy, this will be my second-to-last post on the NFL’s recent idiocy.
So a bunch of black NFL players have been trying to turn the National Conversation to the topic of violence. Dear Lord, REALLY? Are you guys seriously that fucking stupid? I always thought the image of dumb jocks was just an invidious stereotype. Maybe there’s something to it.
OK, dickheads, wish granted.
What fraction of white cops have killed a black man?
What fraction of NFL players have committed a violent crime?
If I support the NFL, I guess I’m supporting physical assault. I wouldn’t want to do that! Better not have anything to do with the NFL.
This site was down due to “extreme traffic” on September 26, 2017. I’ll bet. All of a sudden, American fans have had their attention called to the fact that NFL players are claiming to be angels. Seriously, fuckwits?
Even the Huffington Post isn’t buying it, for fuck’s sake!
I don’t usually cite HuffPo, unless it’s for a laugh, but since NFL players are now claiming to be morally perfect little angels who are entitled to lecture everyone else:
Why Aren’t We Talking About What This Study Discovered About NFL Violence?
Researchers have found that NFL players get arrested for violent crimes more often than 20- and 30-something men.
HuffPo also notes that this understates things, because the study only counted arrests while the player was on an NFL roster, and the average NFL career is only 6 years. In contrast, the comparison group, men in their 20s and 30s, has no such limitation; it spans 20 years.
(So the disparity would go the other way if NFL players weren’t especially violent, by a factor of 20/6 = 3.33. I.e., NFL player are more than three times as likely to commit violent crimes as the general male population in that age group.)
Look, if even The Huffington Post can’t stomach the bullshit of your left-wing cause, it’s time to re-think.
At PJ Media https://pjmedia.com/trending/2017/10/01/now-wall-street-threatens-nfls-act/ we learn that
Contrary to the Black Lives Matter narrative, the police have much more to fear from black males than black males have to fear from the police. In 2015, a police officer was 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male was to be killed by a police officer.
Black males have made up 42 percent of all cop-killers over the last decade, though they are only 6 percent of the population. That 18.5 ratio undoubtedly worsened in 2016, in light of the 53 percent increase in gun murders of officers — committed vastly and disproportionately by black males.
Maybe talking about disparities in murder rates by race isn’t the way to go here, assholes.
