    As an example of unequal treatment and black privilege, look at the difference in the treatment of black quarterback Jameis Winston and white quarterback Mitch Trubisky.

    The DWFs and mainstream media want Winston to be an NFL starter and he had 30 interceptions last season.

    Mitch Trubisky has never had more than 12 interceptions in a season. Him the DWFs and mainstream media are trying to run out of Chicago and make sure he never starts again anywhere.

    Example of black privilege: on NFL.com there is a Week 14 Truths section and one of the ‘truths’ is Taysom is not the answer and never will be. This despite playing very well over the last few games, showcasing much more throwing ability than people thought while minimizing his running. He goes through progressions.

    Meanwhile Jackson in Baltimore who is much less a passer and also an exceptional runner gets the keys to the car and gets named MVP last year (while playing very average ball this year) and no questions. And the midget over in Arizona is named the most dynamic player in the league...

    I have white cucks more than anything in this world...

    You know... if things in this country continue to deteriorate maybe the country will fracture between the United States of America (us) and the Socialist States of America (them).

    And perhaps there will two football leagues and the SuperBowl becomes the final game between the two. Their team would be littered with black divas who lack strength of body and character while ours would be filled with 70% or more white men with grit. I would love to see the all-black socialist team get whipped each year.

    Here's another insightful article from Jason Whitlock. Starts a bit slow but is worth a read.

    BLACK MATRIARCHY PLAYS SIGNIFICANT ROLE IN THE PLIGHT OF BLACK COLLEGE FOOTBALL COACHES

    The college football world told Derek Mason, Lovie Smith and Kevin Sumlin — three of its 13 black Division I head coaches — to turn in their playbooks and leave a forwarding address for the remaining dollars left on their contracts.

    Soon, the TV opinionists, radio talking heads, college football beat writers and everyone else concerned with being on the right side of Twitter will begin the process of excoriating college football as racist.

    The excoriation will grow louder when the NFL’s Anthony Lynn joins his white brethren, Dan Quinn, Matt Patricia and Bill O’Brien, in the unemployment line.

    In recent years, when high-profile black football coaches have failed, the coroner has never really examined their body of work in search of a cause of death. It’s as if, for black head coaches, death is expected, that there’s nothing to learn.

    The prevailing wisdom among the woke is that all black problems have white solutions. Things didn’t work out for Mason at Vanderbilt, Smith at Illinois and Sumlin at Arizona because college football hasn’t hired enough black coaches.

    Football is racist. Everyone knows that. The white men who coach it, organize it, fund it and select the head coaches are the modern-day Calvin Candie, the fictional Mississippi slave owner in the movie Django Unchained.

    Maybe that’s all true. But I’m not sure that explains why 41 years after Wichita State made Willie Jeffries the first black man to lead a Division I football program that big-time college football has yet to produce its version of John Thompson or Nolan Richardson.

    Fourteen years after Illinois State University made Will Robinson D-I’s first black basketball head coach, John Thompson won a national title at Georgetown and built a dynasty that rewarded Thompson’s top assistant coach (Craig Esherick), oldest son (John Thompson III) and greatest player (Patrick Ewing) with the head coaching position. A decade later, Nolan Richardson matched Thompson’s feat, winning a national title at Arkansas and appearing in three Final Fours. Richardson’s top assistant, Mike Anderson, would later become the head coach of the Razorbacks.

    I bring all this up because I spent Sunday, Monday and Tuesday this week researching, thinking about and discussing the plight of black college football coaches.

    I’m amazed at how little information about black college football coaches is actually out there. It’s easy to find story after story complaining that college football decision-makers are racist or biased. Maybe I didn’t know where to look, but I couldn’t find a comprehensive list of the black men who have been named head football coach of a Division I school.

    I spent a day and a half compiling my own list. By my count, 50 black men have led a Division I program. Here’s a link to my full list. Check it out. Perhaps I missed someone.

    My point is everyone loves to complain about the lack of opportunity for black college football coaches. No one has actually examined what we (black men) have done with the opportunities we’ve earned and what we can learn from those successes and failures.

    When it comes to black football coaches, everyone seems to agree that white racism is the problem.

    Should we look any further? Should we explore any other potential complications?

    In 41 years, 50 black men have been named head coach of a Division I program 71 times (some coaches have led multiple schools.) Nine of those men — Kevin Sumlin, David Shaw, Charlie Strong, James Franklin, Herm Edwards, Jimmy Lake, Ruffin McNeill, Randy Shannon and Karl Dorrell — have winning records.

    So who has been the most successful?

    It has to be Stanford’s David Shaw, followed by Penn State’s James Franklin, and then three guys who are sidelined as head coaches — Charlie Strong (Louisville, Texas and USF), Kevin Sumlin (Houston, Texas A&M and Arizona) and Tyrone Willingham (Stanford, Notre Dame and Washington.)

    Shaw is the cream of the crop. He and Franklin are the only black coaches to win a Power Five conference title. Shaw has won the PAC-12 three times. His 2015 team finished 12-2 and ranked No. 3 in the country. Franklin won the Big Ten in 2016. Only three other black coaches have won a conference title. Turner Gill (2008), Michael Haywood (2010) and Dino Babers (2015) won the Mid-American Conference.

    Shaw has won 88 games in 10 years at Stanford.

    Stanford is interesting. The school has had three black coaches, all of whom would have to be considered successful. Shaw, Willingham and Denny Green, the old Minnesota Vikings coach. Willingham won 44 games at Stanford, including a 9-3 season in 2001 that landed him the Notre Dame job.

    Denny Green took over a terrible Stanford program in 1989. In his second season, he upset No. 1-ranked Notre Dame. In year three, he led the Cardinal to an 8-4 season and a second place finish in the PAC-10. He then left to become the Vikings head coach.

    So why have all three of Stanford’s black football coaches succeeded?

    I have a theory.

    Stanford isn’t a football factory. It caters to rosters filled primarily with legitimate student-athletes from stable family backgrounds. Stanford football is Duke basketball. The racial makeup of the Stanford football team is a bit different from the typical football factory.

    By my rough count and estimate, Stanford’s roster is 52% white, 46% black and 2% other.

    It’s easier for black coaches to lead teams filled with kids from nuclear families. Black kids from broken homes and/or with broken-father relationships struggle to submit to the leadership of black head coaches. They respond better when the ultimate authority is white or female.

    I know that sounds crazy to some of you. I know that, as a member of the media, I’m supposed to just write that white racism is the explanation for every black problem.

    But the reality is that insecurity and self-hatred are bigger problems for black male athletes. You can see it in their attraction to the Black Lives Matter movement. BLM is a cry for white love and a white solution to black problems. BLM is a plea for a white daddy to save black culture.

    For the last 60 years, black culture has been ruled by the matriarchy, and a lack of respect and belief in black men. Kids raised by single mothers and single grandmothers have little regard for black male authority figures. Their irresponsible fathers and bitter mothers give birth to a cynicism that, if left untreated, quietly haunts the child throughout adulthood.

    The culture of female dominance, leadership and worship is now the default culture of black millennials. With 75 percent of black kids born into single-parent homes, baby-mama culture — and the cynicism that goes along with it — have been imposed upon black kids from two-parent homes. In order to fit in, in order to meet “Black Twitter’s” standard of blackness, Carlton from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air must conform to the culture of the matriarchy.

    In this era, the Atlanta politician Stacey Abrams would have a better chance of duplicating the Georgetown basketball dynasty than Big John Thompson.

    In an effort to connect with modern black athletes and win the approval of black matriarchal culture, all coaches are being forced to conceal their authentic beliefs. They all have to bow at the shrine of Black Lives Matter and express adoration for George Floyd, Jacob Blake, Eric Garner, Breonna Taylor, Michael Brown, etc.

    Everyone knows it’s all ********. Do you think Nick Saban believes Michael Brown, who wrestled for control of a police officer’s gun, was the victim of racism or the victim of bad decision-making? Do you think Saban believes criminal suspects have the right to resist arrest?

    It’s all a charade. The athletes know it. A white coach can shed a tear or two inside a team meeting and pacify his players.

    But for black coaches, the charade is much more serious. Their burden of BLM proof must rise above a reasonable doubt. Team meeting tears are not enough. They must issue bold and provocative public statements to the media denouncing whatever BLM has told them to denounce. They must pretend they live in daily fear of being killed by police. They must invite Dr. Harry Edwards or a local race-baiting equivalent to speak to their teams.

    Black coaches must prove their blackness on command.

    It’s a burden. They just want to coach football and share the values that helped them become successful. Football coaches, regardless of color, generally fit a profile. They’re stubborn, conservative, disciplined, traditional and family oriented.

    David Shaw, Kevin Sumlin, Charlie Strong, James Franklin and Herm Edwards come from similar, two-parent backgrounds. Their parents were educators or members of the military or coaches. They were raised in the patriarchal culture commonplace in the 1960s and 1970s.

    Today’s black matriarchy makes coaching more challenging for them. At Stanford, Shaw has the luxury of leading a locker room less hostile to strong black male leadership.

    That’s my theory. Feel free to reject it. I won’t be offended. Don’t you be offended when I reject the assumption that white racism totally explains the plight of black coaches.

    many of them are inept quota hires and that is why i bet against them, show a coaches ATS record and i will show you a coach who exceeds or underperforms expectations. That is the great equalizer that leftists won't talk about or could never in a million years understand. Numbers don't lie, especially when they are green.

    Good stuff from Whitlock. I'd rather deal with a thousand Malcolm X's than one Martin Luther King Jr.

    The most sickening thing in race relations today is the petting that goes on between white liberals and MLK-type blacks - rich white liberals paying blacks to act like pets and star in their "I'm not racist, I'm one of the GOOD whites" ads, and the MLK-type blacks petting the white libturds in return and saying, "Yes, you're a good boy, here's your anti-racist cred, now let's declare bloody jihad on those White alt-righters together."

    I hope the path of black activism goes full Malcolm X and they tell the Democratic Party exactly where they can stick it. Let's face it, neither the liberal dream of MLK nor the cuckservative dream of blacks magically turning conservative by the millions are ever going to come true. This is the best we can hope for.

    Agree. "Integration" doesn't even work well on the NFL-field and there all "social injustices" should be gone since they're all millionaires...

    All I can say to blacks is that small (l) liberal America has a place for black Americans, socialist, progressive ideological America has a USE for black Americans. If that idiot word "racist" means anything then I might be one of some sort but I am no racial bigot which are two words with real meaning.

    In short in America 2020 it's probably even odds that a white football player gets as fair a treatment from a black coach as a white coach, especially if you avoid trying to communicate with him using lefty cuck language and spoke to him like a man and put your cards on the table. I could be wrong.

    Looks like Gesicki will miss some time with a bad shoulder. Bummer as he was having a breakout season.

    Raiders are also down 4 defensive starters so I expect to see plenty of Heath along with Crosby, and Kwiatkowski as always.

    *NVM Heath is out as well with a concussion. He still had a good bounce back season after being caste out of Dallas.

    A chance we see Leavitt at Safety? Don't The Raiders have another pale face at LB as well?

    They have DE Carl Nassib, who plays quite a bit. LB Tanner Muse missed his entire rookie season unfortunately with an injury.

    Forgot about Nassib, disappointed I haven't seen many Raiders games so I am looking forward to tomorrow night.

    Looks like this Outkick media-outlet has an opportunity to be the alternative to the liberal-marxist propaganda that’s constantly on ESPN.

    Jason Whitlock is also affiliated with Outkick.... I was wondering where he went.

    Outkick is a breath of fresh air and is co-owned by Jason Whitlock. Here's his perspective as described by the site: "Whitlock’s point of view is driven by four things: 1) his Christian upbringing; 2) his football upbringing; 3) his father’s Booker T. Washington approach to life; 4) American patriotism. Among other things, Whitlock will write daily columns, podcasts and look for the next generation of fearless journalists."

    Blacks could of chose the Booker T. Washington path to assimilate into black culture and some have embraced that mentality. If I recall correctly from one of my history courses in college Washington essentially viewed the free blacks in the same vein as the immigrants from Europe who had been granted opportunity as freemen and to work their way up into the middle class just like immigrant families did. So hard work and education were emphasized to get ahead.

    Up until the 1950s it did seem like blacks were doing well - plenty of strongholds for blacks in urban centers like Harlem, Chicago, Atlanta took root and as far as I can tell there were no ghettos, absurd crime rates, widespread drug use. The biases they encountered were the same as biases encountered by Irish, Italian, Polish etc immigrants had endured as well. Once Brown Vs Board of Ed hit and the following civil rights movement, war on poverty, war in drugs hit the black community was destroyed. That’s my basic interpretation of what occurred. It may be a simplistic overview but I think it touches on all the basics.

    As far as Whitlock it is interesting how he was initially selected to put The Undefeated website together for BSPN before he was fired. I am sure his take and vision for that site was different than the black supremacist site it has become. I do hope that outkickthecoverage grows in popularity and have to thank @wile for initially posting those articles here. It may be worthwhile to reach out to outkick to see if they will have the gumption to broach the caste system as it applies to football.

    All that's on the mark, though because of segregation and other policies blacks certainly had it much worse than the last big European ethnic groups to come here. What really devastated the black community was LBJ's Great Society, where the government replaced the father in black families and black women were given incentives in the way of government handouts to have children out of wedlock and with no father figure present. The same formula of government as daddy combined with feminist social policies was so effective that it was then applied to the White community. Illegitimate births and fatherless homes are now more common among Whites than they were among blacks 60 years ago.

    While that was going on, blacks were propagandized by schools and the media to accept the "systemic racism," "critical race theory" view of history, much as Whites have been. The total onslaught of communist indoctrination since the late 1960s has resulted in the unspeakably bad current state of the U.S., including all the social dysfunction and distrust and enmity between the races that exists below the surface level. Yet at least half the country hasn't fallen for it as the fraudulent Nov. 3 election shows, and men like Whitlock represent an ongoing re-thinking taking place among blacks about their relationship with White leftists and the Democrat Party. It's still small to be sure, but nonetheless is taking place.

    I really do appreciate someone like Whitlock who isn’t afraid to question the Democratic Party and Marxist policies in general. He has the ability and influence to open other black eyes, in ways similar to a Candace Owens. A sizable portion of blacks are waking up.

    Don, cannot agree more with your last post as well as Leonardfan’s.

    To be honest, these days it's easier to find a fair and unbiased world view from (an educated) black person than your average white college graduate. Less PC ******** as well.

    Whitlock continues to produce thoughtful articles. Is there any other prominent media figure who write editorial articles about sports that attack the prevailing leftist narrative? Steve Sailor occasionally?

    Sounds good up to a point but the guy is still pushing that "equality" baloney that nobody believes in these days and probably never in the past ever believed in. We all have to get away from that completely. Just go by, I love my people and that's all there is to it. But also, make sure you get it across, you don't hate anyone because of what they are. You only hate what some people do. And that unfortunately, black people by far, do most of the bad things in our nation.

    I like to say, "I love my race like I love my children; I don't hate other races, just like I don't hate other people's children, but I can never love them the way I love my own children."

    Anyway, like I said before, I hope a divorce between the black community and the Democratic Party is forthcoming. To be clear, blacks voting conservative in large numbers is an unrealistic pipe dream, but every black that goes Malcolm X is half a vote for our side.

    In a bit of good news it sounds like Wentz has no desire to be a backup QB with the Eagles so hopefully he can force his way out in the offseason. I am sure the dwfs/black racist fans and media are all eager to get Wentz the last push out the door with Philadelphia to make the short sighted decision of making the quoatback their next black savior so I do hope that happens. Wentz needs to be sure to land with a competent coaching staff and a less moronic GM.
