Atlanta native and Miami Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder had some interesting things to say about London in the UK:

“I couldn’t find London on a map if they didn’t have the names of the countries. I swear to God. I don’t know what nothing is. I know Italy looks like a boot. I learned that. I know (Washington Redskins linebacker) London Fletcher. We did a football camp together. So I know him. That’s the closest thing I know to London. He’s black, so I’m sure he’s not from London. I’m sure that’s a coincidental name.”

SMH.

    What a sad but realistic example of some young black men in America. What will he do after football? I’m almost in tears and very embarrassed.

  • SW10

    good example showing how stupid some americans are.

    “hes black so he is not from London” U can not be from Miemi than.

  • Kay

    Lawd, Lawd, Lawd!!!!! Is that Negro serious????? My son is 13 and knows way more than he does!!! And he runs track, plays basketball and is on the honor roll!!!

  • elle

    So why doesn’t he just educate himself?

    He can always learn.

    smh

  • gnagi73

    I think that comments shows clearly how much emphasis is put on sport and making money but not on education

  • RequiemForAjerk

    He is clearly an idiot if he does not know about England. Especially when it comes down to money and power, thats the place to be born at. I am a young African-American and it is quotes like this that make us look bad.

    It sounds like he’s trying to be funny but he really just sounds like a moron.

    ha this is funny how yall hating. i bet if i give you all a map you couldnt name them either. its funny he is rich and dont know nothing abroad, but you are broke working 9-5 and you know where everything is at. I guess he is to busy to be online all day and you have nothing else to do but be online all day.

  • Smartie

    He continued to say “I know they speak English in London so I’m happy about that”. Somebody please take this fool and Wyclef for comparing T.I. to Malcom X to reading day at the “liberry” as Channing would say so that they can LEARN something. Please tighten up your braids and your brain.

  • Keepin'ItFactual

    It’s a shame that this person will now have a passport. I rather enjoy traveling on international flights without the class of people who never go anywhere. Oh well.

  • Lorna (London Girl)

    The title of the article is “They speak English in London?”

    He didn’t actually know they speak English in London the capital of England

    Um yeh we’r just going to go ahead and fly to England…….

    Crowder “what language do they speak in England”

    ERRR THE CLUE IS IN THE NAME!

    You are quite obviously just like him. This fool made and idiot of himself but to you it’s all ok just ‘cuz he’s rich. He ain’t rich honey, he just has some extra change in the bank. Let’s see what he’ll be doing ten years down the line. And I suggest that you go and educate yourself as well because you so obviously need it. Pair of ignorant arses. That should tell you that I live in London. Fool!

  • Monte

    I’m sure he makes 100x more than I do, and cant even point out the general vacinity of london! He must have gotten RAPED on his contract! Sad, sad, sad. See what happends when your good @ sports in D1 colleges. They just give u the passing grade. Im not from Pluto but I can find it on the the solar system!!! But then again Pluto’s not a planet anymore, but i’m sure he didn’t know that.

    That Florida education goes along way

  • Monte

    Even though I think he was joking

  • lacyd

    In his defense, geography wasn’t really my cup of tea either (but as long as I can read, I can point it out on a map). But I do hope that he was being sarcastic when speaking of what language they speak in England. I really, really do.

  • Monte

    You have all the time in the world to joke when u haven’t won a game all year!!

  • Alicia

    It’s so sad but that’s how a lot of these athletes are. They get a free pass through school, but never really learn anything b/c they’re put in these classes where the professors treat them like celebrities and pass them no matter what their academic progress is. I go to a division 1 football school and I see this all the time. athletes receiving “A”‘s in their classes but they can’t spell for their life!! I hope they get a good agent that doesn’t decide to dick them, lmfao. SMH
