Former Philadelphia Eagles great Hugh Douglas tweeted about embattled current Eagles WR Riley Cooper:
S/O to Riley Cooper.. For keepin it 100.. At least now we know!— Hugh Douglas (@Bighugh53) July 31, 2013
In case you missed it (and how could you, after all, given our MSM?), Cooper used the "N" word in a video taken at a Kenny Chesney concert. He was fined by the team and forced to undergo re-educa, er, um, "sensitivity" training.
Now the ... funny thing:
Hugh Douglas was inebriated and threatened to beat up his colleague Michael Smith three times Friday night, a source who witnessed the altercation at the House of Blues in Orlando tells The Big Lead. According to the source, Douglas, who appears on Numbers Never Lie on ESPN with Michael Smith and Jemele Hill, was trying to get on stage where the DJ was playing, and threatened to beat up Smith if he couldn’t help out. After the third threat, Smith tried to walk away, at which point Douglas grabbed Smith’s wrist and hurled two racial epithets at him, calling him an “Uncle Tom” and a “House N—-.” Smith, the witness says, turned around to protect himself, at which point onlookers rushed in to break it up.
Of course, Cooper's transgression was plastered all over the front page of Philly.com; Douglas' was relegated to the NFL section of their sports page. But, alas, that's how the MSM rolls racially, and we all know that by now.Posted by Hube at August 9, 2013 07:11 AM | TrackBack
