It’s a cloudy, rainy Tuesday morning. All is pretty much quiet on the sports front. So is there any better way to start your day with the newest Marcus Haye pile of poo? This time, he’s talking the accusations of racism against Chip Kelly, and Chip’s need to respond to them. The headline, “Chip Kelly needs to address racism talk,” almost makes you think it’s something you’ll totally agree with. You won’t.
Over the past five months, an astounding amount of energy has been spent trying to disprove the observations of three Eagles who, at the risk of their own ruin, said they believe Chip Kelly has a problem with black men.
Well, I am not one to tell someone who has experienced racism when they are or aren’t experiencing it. But I will say this: LeSean McCoy did nothing “at the risk of his own ruin.” He completely lacks self-awareness and has shown that again and again. And I don’t know what astounding amount of energy Hayes is talking about. A majority of people who deny that Kelly has a problem with race simply push the allegations aside or say “Well, I don’t think he’s a racist.” Both require minimal effort.
Predictably, there was a massive rush to disprove it, and thereby make everyone’s life less prickly.
Are you guys ready? I’m gonna say something I’ve never said about something Marcus Hayes has written: This is a good point.
