    Here is some additional black privilege to add to that:

    A Broward County, Fla. judge has allowed Deandre Baker to travel for work.
    It's a moot point right now since Baker has been barred from the Giants' "virtual" offseason, but it clears the way for him to participate in training camp if and when that happens. Baker has pled not guilty to all eight charges he's facing stemming from last week's alleged armed robbery.

    I was going through profootballtalk and looking at the comments section. I found this comment from someone from the We Wuz Kangs mindset so I decided to go on the attack. Let's see if PFT actually lets my comment go through. I have had a little luck commenting on this rooney rule story and gotten alot more likes than dislikes. I also see alot of positive comments regarding the lack of diversity on the field:

    Here’s the realest things ever written for all you white boys on here complaining about why there is a diversity problem amongst execs and why that same logic doesn’t apply to players. Prepare to have your minds blown. If it’s the best player plays on the field and the majority of those players are black wouldn’t that same logic apply to the front office and coaching as well? In the front office it’s straight nepotism. Every thing the “best player plays ” crowd hates. So if it’s best player plays and the majority of the players are black and we have a good ol boy network of nepotism that prevents opportunity…? Oh and the argument some of y’all have about why the league is predominantly black has nothing to do with black men being gifted anything it’s that were just better athletes in general. Stop hating and trying to live vicariously through these athletes. Smdh.

    __________________________________________________________________________________________

    Bad take. There are plenty of good and very good black athletes. However there are many who are recruited at certain positions due to being black and afforded opportunities predicated on skin color rather than ability. The inverse is true for white athletes – they are written off at positions like CB, S, RB, WR, DL because they are white. Plenty of white athletes will be told during the recruiting process right to their faces that since they are white the college/university will not recruit them at certain positions – namely CB, WR and RB. Also you see many more white defensive players get recruited and get switched to white appropriate positions such as TE and OL. Additionally white WRs are disproportionately required to bulk up and convert to TE and white RBs are converted to FB.

    I find it ridiculous that the best RB in the NFL can be white yet there aren’t 20 more white RBs on NFL rosters. Jordy Nelson was a dominant outside WR and yet the league is riddled with mediocre black WRs who have yet to reach their “upside”. Let’s not forget about Wes Welker – the most dominant slot WR in NFL history – somehow he is written off rather than opening barriers and giving more white athletes a chance. The notion that somehow after Jason Sehorn no white person has the ability to play CB – also ridiculous. Let’s be honest there are plenty of bad black players in the league – piss poor secondaries giving up TDs, missed tackles, zero fundamentals, lapses in mental focus. You can spout your “the best players play BS” all you want – but I just laid out a nice opening argument to blow it up. Blow up college recruiting and all the recruiting services and start recruiting the best players – stop racially slotting players and ignoring white athletes if they play certain positions. You may think blacks are better but when it is not an even playing field in recruiting and the systematic discrimination goes unchallenged we will not see the best players on the field.

    Also don’t say white boy unless you want to be called boy yourself – that is another nice example of the racial double standard that exists in this country. You folks can’t be the aggressors and the victims too!

    Unfortunately I feel it is going to be like water off a duck's back to him, its hard to make most people; even some racially aware people acknowledge the caste system (although the coach thing has probably made it much easier) let alone a black athletic supremacist. The NFL is one of the greatest affirmations of these views and he would be disillusioned if he realized the 69% black league wasn't entirely meritocratic. Although what really ticks me off is that he criticizes people criticizing the player composition stating it's because black men are "better athletes in general" but won't concede under his own logic that the coaches might be white for reasons other than nepotism (claiming nepotism when the league is openly incentivizing black coaches :lol:)... Wants to have his cake and eat it too.

    That was a great post, for Caste Football, but IMO it won't dent a normie's psych, not even close. Facts, logic and reason are basically terra igcognita to the vast majority, psychological pain on the other hand that's our baby, but most people are too nice even those here on CF especially the guys who post 500 word posts on 40 times then wonder how TPTB are still "racist" against whites. Myself I should have been an interrogator at Gitmo but those morons in the CIA watched too many stupid movies.

    I do see quite a bit of dissent in the comments and alot of likes for comments asking about the lack of diversity in the draft. I think the main thing for white fans to do is connect the last dot which is why the disparity exists. Once that connection is made then I see alot more people openly questioning the caste system.

    WIR, what if is true? what should he have done? punch her in the face? If it was a female being groped/sexually assaulted by a dude then he would be in jail and he would be convicted and listed as a sexual offender after he gets out of jail.

    I don't know he's behind a rock and a hard place, if his name doesn't come out he won't become a butt of HBO comics, what had me smirking about this was this final set of scenes of this 1980's sophomoric movie.....

    PS, note this has adult themes and note the water buffalo dean and the herd of elephants that kills the hero of the movie....

    I can add the Saul Alinsky advice keep it fun for your supporters then they will go out and do what needs to be done, and IMO it is very fun to mock authority, especially the Caste Clowns. Trying to educate the enemy with a "discussion" or "debate" that is a mook's game setup so the conservative plays the stooge to be dunked on over and over. It is not that I don't appreciate the guys who dig deep into the draft and the workouts and the scouting, that is all great info, but to watch them cling to the anchor of failed tactics is painful, as if they can appeal to the authority of the Caste System to end its "racism" against whites or to educate the fence sitting normies who blow with the wind and in the end want to be on the winning side, so painful to watch.

    On the other hand is me a guy who loves to have people make clowns of themselves and ClownWorld is the galaxy's biggest clown producer, providing a target rich environment.

    Jay Glazier said on Fox sports that Taysom Hill was the man Sean Payton wanted to be the man when Brees leaves. He then went on to say that the Saints signed Famous Jameis to back up Brees. My question is what is Hill going to be doing while Jameis getting the backup reps? I think he is fixing to get the Tebow treatment. He will break his body down playing multiple positions while getting just a few snaps at QB.

    Aldon Smith reinstated. I won't go into details, pretty sure most are aware of the Trainwreck he's been off the field.

    And the Cowboys just offered Dak a 5yr 175mil contract, lol.

    I'm assuming Hill will be even more involved as a RB/WR. Saints have made it clear it that Jameis is there to be a backup QB while they continue to use Hill as jack of all trades. Let's just hope both Brees and Hill stay healthy this season.

    Chickillo was always noticeable on the field during the little time he was used by the Steelers, who had no use for him just as they had no use for Tyler Matakevich (now with Buffalo). Both have starting talent, hopefully one or both will follow the career path of Mike Vrabel, who was also pathetically underused in Pittsburgh before going to New England and starring.

    Saints signed LB Anthony Chickillo, formerly of the Steelers, to a one-year contract.
    Released in a cap move in March, Chickillo was lightly used for the Steelers' excellent 2020 defense, contributing just 143 snaps in 11 games. Headed into his age-28 campaign, Chickillo was a key reserve for years in Pittsburgh, but he could have a difficult time cracking the Saints' loaded 53-man roster.

    Why do people want Taysom Hill to play QB? He is much more useful as a WR/RB where he can use his wheels to be a caste buster. The last thing I want is to watch him waste his unique talents trying to learn how to play QB at a high level. We've already got guys doing that. We need him running and catching the ball for the world to see that yes we do have guys that can to that and why aren't there more?

    I agree. I love how he is a swiss army knife do it all type athlete. If he were younger, maybe develop him but at this point, I would line him up all over the field. To be honest I would love to see him mostly
    stick at running back and throw to him out of the backfield too. The kid could easily play a ton of snaps and help out their other rb's. He has Mike Alstott type talent. Wish he was younger but he is like a clone
    of Peyton Hillis. Size, speed, power and elusivness. No matter where he plays just play the kid!

    I would like him to play QB for one reason, he's white. Qb is the position that blacks covet now and if Hill can keep one from being the starting QB that's where he needs to play.

    And today's arrested player is. . . drumroll please:

    Packers DL Montravius Adams was arrested on Tuesday.
    Adams was arrested on three misdemeanor counts including possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, driving without insurance, and having a suspended/canceled/revoked vehicle registration. According to the Georgia police report, Adams was pulled over for driving on an expired registration but was discovered with less than an ounce of marijuana in his possession upon having his vehicle searched with probable cause. The team has yet to release a statement.

    I'm more excited about Tommy Stevens. He is like a younger Hill at this point. He weighed in at almost 250 pounds at his pro day and ran a 4.49. Perhaps he can develop into the dual threat qb that people are talking about and have Hill be a jack of all trades. Have some sort of dual run/pass options with both of them being a threat to throw it? The possibilities are endless. I like this shift in finding "football players". A majority of the time a guy that is well rounded at several positions is going to be White. These highly specialized affletes that can't adapt need to be phased out. I mean its kind of ridiculous there's tons of backs that can't pass block or even run a route effectively, wide receivers that can only run a limited route tree, hands of stone, can't run block yet they are still considered elite.

    Montravious was a 3rd RD pick too! I'm glad he was a bust, opened the door for Lowry(6th Rd) and Lancaster(UDFA) to start. Much to the dismay of many Packers DWFs and Media.

    I find it so painfully ironic that if you look through twitter like I do, you’ll notice that a bunch of self hating white goofballs and people in general think the NFL is racist and favors whites because they saw a post saying Taysom Hill might be good, etc. Thousands of people watched that draft, saw 2 out of 32 players drafted in the first round be black, and decided that seeing a tweet praising a white player they don’t like proves the nfl is racist and favors whites.

    I click on the profile to see who’s saying this stuff, it’s some scrawny self hating white product of incest from Ohio wearing a 90s all star game nba jersey with some goofy Jordan’s. “No cap Taysom hill just hyped cuz he white lmfao”. What I would do to beat this kid within an inch of his life.

    See this all the time on Twitter. Makes absolutely no sense to me, white people actively denigrating their own race. Some self-loathing white tweeted an obvious shot at Will Shipley by stating that the ‘little white boy signed for Clemson’. Just shook my head. I read somewhere that it’s some kind of mental illness to hate your own race, seems like there are a few sick whites out there.

    IMO those "self hating whites" are an asset to be dunked on and they will help you do it. Gotta maintain your frame while you get them to say it louder while you express your doubts.
