Football is racist. Heck, everything else is so why not … *eye roll*
As Twitchy readers know, Scientific American shared a piece that wasn’t at all scientific and one that many people would question whether it was American at all claiming football is racist.
Sorry, they said, ‘anti-Blackness’ but pretty sure that just means RAY-SIS.
And as many of you can likely guess, most people thought this was impressively STUPID. Editor in Chief of Scientific American, Laura Helmuth, said if you disagree with the fact that the football system is anti-Black that you’re proving it’s anti-Black.
Don’t look at us, we just work here.
“To dismiss the almost certain breaking down of their bodies as just part of the game is a process of objectification and commodification … The anti-Blackness of the system is inescapable.” Important analysis of football from @tracie_canada on @sciam https://t.co/Ru7fLn5kiN

It gets better.
annnnnd the replies to any tweet about systemic racism prove the existence of systemic racism

So disagreeing with her crazy proves the crazy she was spewing? Really?

Self perpetuating arguments are usually wrong.
“This is evil. To disagree with that is evil. That makes you evil.”
You leftists use this with every argument you put forward, which instantly tells the rest of us that you have no idea what you’re talking about.

You’re evil and if you disagree with us that you’re evil that proves you’re evil.
Sort of like the whole ‘you’re racist’ argument.
You’re racist and if you claim you’re not a racist that proves you’re a racist.
I see you’re the Editor in Chief of Scientific American. Do you have any magazines you can recommend that discuss science?

Of course, she could have just asked Tony Dungy …
As a black man and former NFL player I can say this article is absolutely ridiculous.

People used to wonder if they were smart enough for college. Now they have to wonder if they’re stupid enough for college.

You made an ass of yourself because that is what racists do.
You were called on it because that is what decent people do.
You don’t get to preen and pretend you are superior when you are the baddie.
