WATCH: Panthers' Eric Reid addresses last week's rift with Malcolm Jenkins

WATCH: Panthers' Eric Reid addresses last week's rift with Malcolm Jenkins
Reid offers details on why he called Jenkins a "sellout" after their pregame rift last week, citing a players-owners meeting from last year.

Panthers safety Eric Reid offered new details Sunday about what sparked his on-field rift with Eagles' safety Malcolm Jenkins last week.
After the Week 6 matchup, Reid called Jenkins a "sellout" and "neocolonialist."
This week, Reid spoke in depth about the November 2017 meeting, and deal, that led to his departure from the Players Coalition and his run-in with Jenkins.
"We were brought in under the premise that the NFL wanted to use their resources to help the black community," Reid said of the players-owners meeting. "We established within the first five minutes of that meeting that we weren’t there to negotiate an end to the protests. After about an hour and a half of talking, (Texans owner) Bob McNair said, 'I think the elephant in the room is this protesting.' (Bills owner) Terry Pegula follows up with, ‘Yeah, I already lost two sponsors to my hockey team. We need to put a Band-Aid on this and we need a black figure head to do it.’
"(Eagles owner) Jeffrey Lurie said, 'We can do more for the black community than you could ever imagine with our resources.' Bob McNair then said, ‘Yeah, just make sure you tell your comrades to stop that protesting business.’"
Reid went on to say that after the meeting the coalition reestablished they were not going to negotiate an end to the protests.
"The NFL said they wanted to use its resources to help the black community, so I was fine with giving my opinion on how they could do that," he said.
"That changed the last weekend of November when Malcolm called me on the phone and asked if the NFL made a donation to the Players Coalition, would that be enough for me to stop protesting? He said that they were willing to do $5 million and I told him, no, we’ve already established two times prior to this that we weren’t negotiating an end to a protest. He then asked me how much would it take. I ended that conversation."
At that point Reid and a number of other players, including former Dolphins safety Michael Thomas — who is now with the Giants — left the coalition.
“That weekend, Malcolm stopped protesting," Reid added. "He said it was time for everyone to stop protesting. He didn’t protest the rest of the year.
"The following May, the NFL and the players coalition finalized and announced their deal and within 24 hours of that, the NFL changed the policy on the national anthem requiring everyone to stand. So, those series of events are not a coincidence. The NFL used him to change the anthem policy to force an end to the protest to satisfy its sponsors, like Terry Pegula mentioned, and probably also to satisfy the President of the United States.
"We spent weeks on the phone talking about this deal, saying it wasn’t an end to the protests and he made the decision on his own to move forward and essentially allow the NFL to hide behind his black face, as Terry Pegula said, to make a change to the anthem policy to force us to stand."
Reid also gave details on the structure of the deal the coalition and the league reached saying it was set up “much like a player contract” and that it was “heavily incentivized."

Brian (Waterhead Bo) Bennett

Brian (Waterhead Bo) Bennett
So who was the biggest black kingpin of all time? Just how do you measure that? Money, volume of dope, power, cultural impact? Perhaps it was Frank Matthews… you can learn more about him in my documentary “The Frank Matthews Story” link. But in terms of documented transactions that we know about for sure, who was convicted in court: One man stands alone. Brian “Waterhead Bo” Bennett. Bennett and his Colombian Partner, Mario Villabona, were eventually convicted of moving nearly l5 thousand kilos that they talked about on certain wiretaps between December of 1987 and November of 1988. Some of the loads were as large as 1000 kilos and cheaper than $9,000 dollars each wholesale. That’s 1500 keys a month for nearly a year. And that’s just on the wiretapped phones. Who knows how much he really sold in total. Claims are made about this one and that one selling more, but 15,000 keys sold for sure is the most we know about for any black dealer. Waterhead Bo s…

LeBron James Rocks Colin Kaepernick Nike T-Shirt to Lakers Preseason Game

LeBron James Rocks Colin Kaepernick Nike T-Shirt to Lakers Preseason Game

LeBron James was wearing some exclusive Nike gear on his way to the Lakers' preseason game against the Kings on Thursday as he sported a 'Kaepernick' t-shirt to Staples Center.
James has previously voiced his support for Colin Kaepernick both as an NFL quarterback and as the face of the 30th anniversary of Nike's "Just Do It." campaign.
After the apparel brand announced in September Kaepernick would be used in advertisements going forward, James said he stood for "anybody who believes in change" and added, "I stand with Nike all day, every day."
LeBron James has long supported Colin Kaepernick and the movement the former NFL quarterback started by taking a knee in 2016.
Now, this shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to anyone. James has been more outspoken about social issues in recent years. He’s discussed matters like immigration, police brutality, women’s rights and pres…

THE KAEPERNICK 4

THE KAEPERNICK 4
Uh, U.N.I.T.Y., U.N.I.T.Y. that's a unity
U.N.I.T.Y., love a black man from infinity to infinity

For those of you who are too young to remember this bar, it comes straight from the mouth of our big sis Queen Latifah.

This song dropped way back in 93'. So i ask you all these years later. Have we followed her example?

How bout this one?

Ignorance of each other is what has made unity impossible in the past. Therefore we need enlightenment. We need more light about each other. Light creates understanding, understanding creates love, love creates patience, and patience creates unity. Once we have more knowledge (light) about each other, we will stop condemning each other and a United front will be brought about.
-Malcolm X

Can't argue with brother Malcolm bout that. Can you? What would he think of african american unity today?

Lets try one more.

"Unity to be real must stand the severest strain without breaking."
-Mahatma Gandhi

My man Gandhi. You kno…

White man lost his temper when he heard the women at the counter speaking Arabic

White man lost his temper when he heard the women at the counter speaking Arabic A Dallas man tried to buy a purse at a Macy’s store in the mall over the holidays, but lost his temper when he heard the women at the counter speaking Arabic. So he yelled at them and then lashed out at the other customers when they asked him to be respectful, reports the Heavy. “You’re being mean to her,” a customer tells him. The man retorts by asking, “Are you a bunch of Democrats? Yeah, a bunch of Democrats.” “All you Arabs and Democrats, just go back where you came from,” the man says after multiple customers ask him to leave the store. “Well, she’s making a big stand, why don’t I?” the man asks as the fracas continues. “I cannot see how so many Arabs came out of the woodwork,” he adds, as the Macy’s attendants try to accommodate his needs. “Dude, you’re the snowflake here,” observes another customer. To which the man retorts, “F*ck you. Put me on YouTube.” A video of the incident went viral. Watch: h…

New footage disproves white woman’s claim that a black child ‘sexually assaulted’ her


The woman identified as Theresa claimed the 9-year-old boy “grabbed my ass,” but the footage shows him merely brushing against her — corroborating the claims of eyewitnesses inside the store who said the boy did not “assault” the woman.

THE 'MAGA' KIDS

THE 'MAGA' KIDS
The ‘MAGA’ Kids As a adolescent i was not interested in much. Especially politics. I was worried about stuff television, music, and doing the most juvenile things i could think of. But things change. Nowadays im surprised to see many more adolescents expressing themselves in them manner of their own political views. Whether that expression is drawn on a shirt, sown on a hat, or colored on a flag. These pre-millennials are out in force. And are not ashamed to show whos side they are on politically.  What caused this change that lead to such an interest in politics in adolescent teens? Feelings, over exposure in the media, the internet for sure,but most of all, their parents.  We all know that a parents view have a huge impact on their children. Who else would allow them to come to school draped in a confederate flag. Or a t-shirt with hateful symbols or message.  But i didn't want to make this story about the parents. I want to discuss who or what got th…
