Jay Feely Wonders if Black Person Would be Defended Way Carson Palmer Is
Arizona Cardinals kicker Jay Feely stirred up the racial pot Tuesday tweeting about Carson Palmer’s retirement from the NFL. Here’s what he wrote:
Feely apparently is auditioning for a spot as a future talk show host after his NFL career ends, because going to the race card is an excellent way to ignite debate. Responding to his point, yes, I do believe most fans are more sympathetic to the plight of white players compared to black ones. However, this situation is different.
Much like Sportress of Blogitude wrote, I support any and all players’ efforts to escape Cincinnati. I don’t care if you’re white, black, Asian, Pacific-Islander, or Antarctican (is that such a thing?), I don’t wish anyone the misfortune of playing for that disaster of a franchise. Look, if man-bander Nick Lachey calls your franchise a joke, then you know it’s a bad situation. I really think something would be wrong with a person if they did not want out of Cincinnati.
