    Watch Dave Chappelle’s new stand up “The Closer” and then read why he’s been dragged over hot coals and you have your answer.

    I agree with you, but I think he makes a good point anyway.

    Just throwing this out there but the bucs today removed jon gruden from their ring of honor. Warren sapp who was arrested in 2010 for domestic violence and in 2015 for assault on a hooker and was accused of sexual harrassment by coworker in 2016 is still in the bucs ring of honor.

    He had to go after the Michael Sam comment considering the Raiders have a gay player.

    My favorite Warren Sapp story is when the Bucs flew into Philly in January 2003 to play the Eagles in the NFC title game and he was arrested on the tarmac for not paying child support.

    Yeah I saw that. But heres from USA today as well as other sites that said he plead guilty to charges in both instances:https://www.usatoday.com/story/spor...-plea-deal-in-domestic-battery-case/73174846/

    "The 42-year-old former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders defensive tackle pleaded no contest in Las Vegas Justice Court to one misdemeanor domestic violence charge, court officials said.

    A judge fined Sapp $345 and ordered him to pay $2,555 in restitution, log 48 hours of community service and six months of counseling, and stay out of trouble for six months. Two other misdemeanor domestic violence charges were dismissed.

    Sapp also has to stay away from the victim, prosecutor Lisa Luzaich said. He faces six months in jail if he violates terms of the deal.

    The accusation came just months after Sapp was fired as an on-air analyst for the NFL Network after a Feb. 2 arrest in Phoenix for assaulting and soliciting a prostitute during Super Bowl weekend.

    He pleaded guilty to both charges, and the solicitation charge was dropped after he completed a diversion program.

    I don’t use the N word casually in messages, so he’s basically a retard and just not a great person for doing it in his position.

    You would think, huh? It's definitely the first thought and especially in conjunction with their infamous fan base. And yet in reality, Al Davis himself probably would've dropped him for the DeMaurice Smith comments alone. As it turns out, the Davis family have always been trailblazers on 'progressive' shit a long, long time before it became popular much less de facto mandatory.

    https://www.mercurynews.com/2020/09...-legacy-of-silver-black-and-the-full-rainbow/

    His passion for inclusion was undeniable. Yes, he wanted to just win, baby. And to just do it with anyone, baby. “He was so far ahead, it was unbelievable,” said Mark Davis, Al’s son and the Raiders’ current owner who’s steered their move this year to Las Vegas.

    “It brings tears to my eyes at how many things he was able to do,” Davis added. “He did it because it was the right thing to do, not because people wanted him to do it. People deserved the opportunity and he believed in that.”

    People such as Art Shell, the NFL’s first modern-era Black coach, who took over the Los Angeles Raiders in 1989 and made the playoffs three of his five seasons. People such as Amy Trask, who became the NFL’s first female chief executive in 1997. People such as Tom Flores, pro football’s first Latino quarterback and, later, the first minority coach to win a Super Bowl (and then another).

    Davis’ dominance with diversity went far beyond those examples. He drafted and unearthed gems from small, Black colleges in the south. He refused to play games in segregated cities where black and white players would have stayed in different hotels. He, discreetly, gave to ex-players and others in need, most of whom were minorities.

    Mark Davis vows to continue on his father’s legacy.

    “It is an issue very dear to me and I’ll do whatever I can to carry that torch forward,” Davis, 65, said. “I don’t know if I’ll be as effective but I try to do what’s right.”

    When the Raiders declared Juneteenth a team holiday, Hall of Fame receiver Tim Brown called it a beautiful thing, adding: “This keeps in line what Al was all about, and you have an organization that understands where society is right now.”

    I thought I was fairly well versed on derogatory phrases and names, but rubber lips is a new one to me. I would take that more as a loose lips type shit talk.

    And some folks here don't want me reading between the lines. Apparently I didn't read the articles properly or like one guy said I didn't bother to read it at all. Okay then

    “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

    The only thing he did wrong was use the words :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek: and queer in a business email account.
