The Philadelphia Eagles’ Riley Cooper Would Have Got in Less Trouble for Committing Murder
Under the current Minority Occupation Government, the historic American nation exists only to be exploited. And the worst crime for Americans is not murder, rape, or treason—but whites saying a forbidden word.
The destruction of a public figure for saying a forbidden word is now an established American ritual. The dust has yet to settle on the Paula Deen n-word debacle, but another manufactured controversy has taken over the headlines. This time, it comes from “America's Opiate”--the National Football League. The sacrificial victim: the Philadelphia Eagles’ Riley Cooper, one of the few white wide receivers in professional football.
The National Football League is dominated by black players, in my opinion partly because of institutional bias and anti-white racism. As a result, the sport is pervaded by a ghetto culture, including frequent use of the “n word.” As one NFL player, afraid of giving his name, stated recently
The ‘n-word,’ as they like to say, is all over. I will tell you this, it’s said all over—on the field, definitely in locker rooms. This is really nothing new.
[Riley Cooper may have bigger problems ahead, By Joseph Santoliquito, CBS, August 1, 2013]
However, Riley Cooper is white, and the current much-vaunted “white privilege” does not extend to using a forbidden word. Cooper has become this generation's John Rocker because a video has surfaced of him drunk, cursing, using racial epithets and uttering the n-word in an altercation with a black security guard at a Kenny Chesney concert in June.
Since the video became public, Cooper has been the target of one of the Main Stream Media’s Two -Minute Hates, especially from sports reporters, notoriously PC. He has also been excused from the Eagles training camp to “undergo counseling”. [Eagles excuse Riley Cooper from camp to focus on counseling, By Nate Davis, USA Today, August 1, 2013] Finally, he has been fined by the Eagles—all for using a word that his black teammates, remember, throw around with impunity. [Eagles fine Riley Cooper for insensitive comment, By Dan Hanzus, NFL.com, July 31, 2013]
And Cooper's real struggle is just beginning. He must now beg forgiveness from the likes of the Eagles. Black quarterback Michael Vick. When Vick was put on trial for dog fighting, Civil Rights groups demonstrated in support of him and Affirmative Action academic Melissa Harris Perry [email her] intoned about the racial overtones of his trial on MSNBC.

This is not a theoretical possibility. A few years ago, the NFL penalized the New Orleans Saints for having a bounty/slush fund to reward in-game performance metrics achieved by defensive players that included monetary bonuses for those who intentionally injured players.
Generally, there’s an unwritten rule in the NFL is that players will not intentionally try and injure one another. But Riley Cooper can no longer rely on it. Black NFL Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe openly told CBS’s Joseph Santoliquito that black players will be out for revenge
“But what he did open was a can of worms for everybody else that plays on the opposite side of the football that’s gonna be teeing off on him. Because most of the safeties in the National Football League are African American. Most of the corners—African American. A lot of the linebackers—African American. Those are the guys that he’s gonna have to face. Those are the guys that he’s gonna have to make amends to.”
Simultaneously, of course, the NFL is also dealing with another scandal—that of New England Patriot tight end Aaron Hernandez. Unlike Cooper, Hernandez is not accused of anything serious—just murder. Hernandez, like terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, has an enthusiastic female cheering section who claim that his arrest has just made him sexier. [Women flock to defend Patriots star Aaron Hernandez as hundreds say he's 'too sexy' to be jailed for murder, Daily Mail, June 2, 2013] Other NFL players are also rallying to Hernandez—brothers Mike and Maurkice Pouncey wore “Free Hernandez” hats to a club.
Murder is something we can joke about. But a white NFL player using the n-word is a case for serious soul searching. [What Riley Cooper can expect in counseling, by Lindsay H. Jones, USA Today, August 2, 2013]
In racially divisive situations, black NFL players feel completely free to advocate violence. For example, half black/half Latino New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz Tweeted out a threat to George Zimmerman after he was exonerated of murder charges, writing to his 340,000 plus Twitter followers: "Thoroughly confused. Zimmerman doesn't last a year before the hood catches up to him." [NY Giants WR Sends Threatening Tweet: 'Zimmerman Doesn't Last a Year Before the Hood Catches Up to Him', Breitbart, July 13, 2013]
While Cooper's behavior was crude, it pales in comparison to larger problems in the NFL: no less than 27 NFL players have been arrested over the off-season. [This year's NFL Fantasy Prison Draft, By Paxton Delaney, The Daily Caller, June 27, 2013]
And black players with serious legal problems have been welcomed back to the NFL without consequences. Thus Michael Vick returned after serving his time in prison.
And in 2000, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis was involved in a situation that was eerily similar to the one Aaron Hernandez finds himself in now. [Slayings not forgotten, Ray Lewis not forgiven, By Brent Schrotenboer, USA TODAY, June 18, 2013] But he emerged unscathed and the NFL openly celebrated his retirement season this year as if it were the coronation of football royalty.
After a loss to Lewis’s Ravens in the AFC Championship game last year, the New England Patriots' Wes Welker's wife wrote on Facebook:
“Proud of my husband and the Pats. By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis’ Wikipedia page. 6 kids 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay. What a hall of fame player! A true role model!”
Wes Welker’s wife apologizes for ripping Ray Lewis, By Cindy Boren, Washington Post, January 22, 2013
Needles to say, the real scandal was not Lewis's behavior, but Anna Burns Welker pointing it out. Lewis accepted her ritual apology, sort of. [Ray Lewis forgives Wes Welker’s wife for murder comments By Cindy Boren, Washington Post, January 19, 2013]
The point is that to Black Run America, Ray Lewis truly is a “true role model”--a symbol of everything this society values—wealth, fame, celebrity, lack of restraint.
More than elections, these kinds of incidents show the real situation in American politics. What is happening to Cooper is exactly what is happening to Paula Deen: a public Soviet-style show trial, where the verdict is never in doubt. The objective: to warn white Americans they have no freedom of speech or even thought. If they voice an unacceptable sentiment in an unguarded moment, their lives will be destroyed.
Ask Mel Gibson.
Ask Paula Deen.
Riley Cooper would have been better off murdering someone.
