Editor's Note: This post contains content that includes profane language and is therefore NSFW. It has not been confirmed that Richard Sherman actually wrote this, although many sites are running with the story as if he did. Sherman is highly educated, having been an honor student and having graduated from Stanford; in addition to the uncertain nature of a post from a star NFL player appearing on a random website, the spelling and grammar errors in the post make attribution to him highly dubious.
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is already well-known as one of the NFL's more outspoken players. But his latest alleged remarks hit the nail on the head when it comes to the major problems with the Black Lives Matter movement which has swept the nation over the last year.
Sherman spoke out after BLM activist King Noble posted an unauthorized photo of him and Seahawks teammate Marshawn Lynch on his website last week.
“When are we gon Kill These KKKracka Bro.”
Sherman fought back by leaving a reply for King Noble on his website with the handle “RSherman25”:
I did not believe this when I heard about it. I watched your videos. I started a life in the gehto [sic]. I banged like a fool till I woke up. I was not suppressed by any man or woman, white or black.
I worked myself up from Compton High School to a scholarship at Standford University and I did it myself. I take pride in what I have accomplished both as a black man, and an athlete. I could have stayed in LA and banged and used drugs and thought that it was all the white mans fault [sic]. But that would be a lie. We are who we want to be, that is what is great about america [sic]. We are all born with the same chances in life..white or black…YOU choose to be a woman-abusing racist loudmouth. I would love to debate you on national tv [sic]. And if you condone senseless black shootings of whites and police officers, you better make that a debate on Springer, so I can bitchslap your ignorant ass!
You are what is keeping and making the black race look bad. Wake up fool. Do not glorify this half a man, he has worked for nothing. He chose to keep himself where he is, not the white people. It is time to take responsibility for your own actions, and not act like a stinking fool. Kids and young black men and women look at this site, and believe that they are abused. That is a bold-faced lie. It is out of the mouths of cheap thugs like you that are hurting our young and taking away the chances they have to make themselves a productive part of society. Brothers and sisters: the only slavery in america now is the one you put yourself into Rise up like Doctor King as taught us, and be a real human being [sic]. We are all in this together white and black. Peace to all and I hope this stupid fake hate stops real soon. We are all brothers and sisters. Do not be fooled by the tyranny of evil men like this lift yourself up educate yourselves and work hard for a good life [sic]. No one owes you anything stand proud as a person of color , and do something meaningful with your life [sic]. I did and I am the best at what I do! Peace out, R Sherman.”
King Noble has been in-and-out of the headlines over the past few weeks for his threats against white Americans as a leader of the BLM movement. According to Vox, he is a leader of the “F*ck Yo Flag” group that initially planned a series of protests on September 11th:
King Noble also delivered a violent and racist rant during a live online broadcast on BlogTalkRadio late last month, in which he declared that it is:
"...open season on killing whites and white police officers.”
“Today, we live in a time when the white man will be picked off, and there’s nothing he can do about it. His day is up, his time is up. We will witness more executions and killing of white people and cops than we ever have before.
It’s about to go down. It’s open season on killing white people and crackas.”
