    This article could be posted within any number of threads: the tales of Colin Kaepernick buffoonery, the empowerment of white identity from Trump's campaign, or any of the weekly NFL threads where blanket TV ratings in all markets continue to shrink.

    'B/R Mag' is the Sporting News/Bleacher Report's attempt at a "serious" sports journalism webzine. Of course, it's a complete SJW cuckfest that mostly focuses on the nobility of all the unarmed black teens who were murdered by racist cops simply for hatred of the color of the skin. I suspect this piece fell onto a "broken clock" conclusion here, revealing that political party support is neatly split along racial lines in NFL locker rooms (albeit a small sample size).

    Graphics like this must be encouraging to white fans who aren't quite "racist" but are quickly turning that corner en masse. The poll asked 44 NFL players (22 white and 22 black) who they would vote for. The framing is a bit deceptive, since whites are a pronounced minority in varying degrees within every locker room.

    Anyway, the article is rich with anecdotes that fail to carry water for the anti-white narrative. The recurring theme is that white players simply decline to discuss politics at all with their black teammates, who at worst will end friendships over Trump's "blatant racism." I recommend reading through the whole thing - just don't expect to be able to leave a comment at the bottom, lol.

    Here are some choice excerpts:
    Make no mistake: this is still a partisan article, and the author (a black man) tries to slander Trump with many unsubtle turns of phrase. My impression after re-reading is that this relatively simple, unpolished piece will get a lot of traffic and traction because it vindicates both blocs of readers (pro-white and anti-white). Also, I find it encouraging that this biased black journalist is effectively out of proverbial switches to tan the hides of his sport's "racist" white audience. There is a reason for hosting no comments underneath. (no fledgling website could ever properly police its audience with a part-time police force)

    I heard about that poll on Colin Cowherd's show. In my opinion, this election has become a huge divide and conquer psyop. I'm not sure if the poll gave the players a "I'm not voting" or a Gary Johnson option. Amazingly, a black female asked me about the election and I told her I wasn't voting. She stated that if Trump was elected, he was going to deport all Blacks and Mexicans. I pressed her on the issue, stating that the President doesn't have that power and reminded her that her life didn't change with a black president. She held her ground and said she was in literal fear. There seems to be a hopeless ignorance, distrust, irrational fear, and overall Idiocracy surrounding this election.

    Donald Trump is the least of the NFLs problems. The NFL is full of self-important, uneducated and ignorant black players who are beneficiaries of the racial spoils caste system that gives them the opportunity over just as good or better white players - that's what their problem really is.

    In reguards to the black linebacker who "cant be friends with a Trump supporter". ... If you can end a friendship over a difference of opinion, then I'm sorry, but you were probably never friends to begin with, and in a twist of irony, who's the one being intolerant?

    The division seems to be, as usual, blacks getting their noses out of joint because everybody doesn't agree with their view point... So they start pouting and the white guilt crowd typically backs down like scared rabbits... Finally, that's starting to change and they don't like it..

    The strange thing to me about this whole election is the divide between what I see and read in the media as opposed to real life. I have friends with black friends whom I've talked to about this election. One black guy was for Trump. 2 reasons, #1 he hates Clinton #2 he can't get decent construction contracts due to the influx of Mexicans under bidding him.
    The second black guy was unsure. After I explained how Trump would create jobs and has a history of creating jobs, he said "yea I think Trump would be a lot better for the economy." Neither one spoke anything about racism or BLM. We all know blacks aren't known for their patriotism but these guys being in their mid to late 20's have felt the sting of not being able to get a job. Blacks only care about something when it hits them in their pockets. When you explain to them in layman terms how the Clintons are professional crooks, you speak a language they understand, and race doesn't need to be part of the conversation.

    The Weekly Standard just put out an article on the decline of the NFL. Ironically the founder is none other than #Nevertrump jewish neocon Bill Kristol. With that said it is a decent read laying out some of the reasons the NFL isn't that good anymore. It's nice seeing these types of articles pop up week after week.
