NFL strategy of re-opening league in time for election has Trump calling on his NFL billionaire buddies to grant his wishes by any means necessary. This time rich black people are asked to put themselves and families at risk because of a Donald Trump edict or request by proxy.
At the start of the 2014 season, NFL surveys revealed that the league was approximately 68% African-American and about 28% white, with the remaining 4% comprising Asian/Pacific Islander, non-white Hispanics, and those preferring a Mixed Race category.
Some commentators refer to NFL owners as slave masters and of course the players are regarded as glorified slaves.
Trump, of course, has allies in this project. Many NFL owners are billionaire Trump supporters. They handed him millions in 2016 and are prepared to do the same in 2020. Trump’s “reopen sports” committee includes no union reps, no health authorities, no women, and no people of color, but does include friends of Trump like the execrable Jerry Jones, owner of the Cowboys, and scandal-marred Bob Kraft of the Patriots. He and his cronies want the games back, even if it means watching from hermetically sealed bunkers while the players risk their lives.
For his part, Commissioner Roger Goodell has proven over the years that he cares little for the health of the players, 70 percent of whom are black. Some players joke that NFL stands for “Not For Long” or “Nigga for Lease.” Most players are in a terrible situation, with the average career lasting only three years. If they don’t play, they will lose their jobs. They only have a small window to earn a hefty NFL salary, and aren’t in a position to tell the franchise owners to take their celebrity death match and shove it. The NFL owners hold all the cards, so the only thing stopping them from opening prematurely would be their consciences. In other words: nothing.
Now it’s up to the fan base. Personally, I never have been a pro-football fan. The NFL has not received one red cent from me. Therefore, I won’t be contributing to Trump’s re-election by proxy the NFL. Will you help the NFL help Trump “Make America Great Again”?
It certainly seems black people systemically participate in their own demise. If you are a NFL fan you help in the election of Donald Trump who in return has a constituency which advocate an ideology antithetical to the interest of African-Americans. Since the election of Trump that same constituency has allowed their feelings to boil over resulting in multiple cold blooded murders of unarmed blacks by white citizens and law-enforcement. Again, owners of the NFL donate millions to the election and re-election of Donald J Trump. Hike!
