Jermichael Finley’s Wife Drags Him On Twitter For Comments About Athletes
Sadly, but somewhat predictably, one Black NFL player after another has publicly displayed not only their lack of awareness, but unabashed apathy toward the plight that affects them as well as their brothas and sistas.
Jermichael Finley recently went on a sunken rant claiming that athletes are out of bounds for discussing race and political issue because they are “roll models” for children. Listen to this fumblin’ azz fool:
While Jermichael has received plenty of backlash for his moronic stance, none was stronger than the thumb-lashing he got from his biracial wife, Courtney. Mrs. Finley took to Twitter to FLAME her husband for spouting off such headassery:
This serves as a reminder @jermichaelf88 in case you have forgotten; you are black. The athletes (foremost people) you are telling to sit down (or stand) and shut up are the very men that are protesting for your safety and equality in a country that has nearly revoked that right based on your skin color. As a biracial mother of 4 black boys, that have been left to be raised by a single mother, I have deep and desperate gratitude for those that use their platform to fight for our community’s justice, safety, & equality. Your social media comments are absurd & offensive not only to me but to a nation that is crippled with hate. Don’t attempt to silence men that are brave enough to be a voice to those that have had their cries muffled. Don’t be so pathetically thirsty for attention that you choose to devalue another man’s motives. Don’t choose to be so insulting and imply professional athletes have no place in changing the world. Most importantly, don’t forget to look in the mirror and see that you too are black and have an obligation to derail racism as best you can for yourself and others. If you don’t want to be part of the resolution to the racial inequalities in this country that’s on you, but for the sake of our 4 sons, don’t be part of the problem. I pray you will reevaluate your stance.
Couldn’t have said it any better. If Jermichael’s ignorant azz is too scared to speak then he needs to sit his scary azz down. Don’t get out here and speak out against brothas who actually have the courage and dignity to do what’s right.
BTW, 4 years ago, Jermichael was exposed by his baby mama when she took to Twitter to tweet Courtney about his OTHER mistress.
Guess he got tired of sleeping on the couch. Flip it to see more pics of sunken Jermichael and woke azz Courtney
