Black Monday: NFL’s Social Engineering Backfire

If you are  watching the NFL, shame on you. Unless you enjoy watching Leftism EAT ITS OWN.

Because if that’s the case, you will love this story. I begin with Holy Mother of Colin Kaepernick, what’s going on in the RACIST NFL!? Let’s begin with black quarterbacks.

As the Undefeated reported Dec 2017:

Before Tuesday, how many of you realized Geno Smith was on the roster of the New York Giants?

Yes, Smith’s been pacing the sidelines for the disappointing Giants (2-9) this season. Now Smith, the former second-round pick who has played four games the past three seasons, gets to make NFL history. When he takes his first snap at the start of Sunday’s game at Oakland, the Giants will end their run as the only team never to start a black quarterback.

Smith will be one of nine black quarterbacks to start in Week 13. Have African-Americans finally broken through at a position they were long discouraged or blocked from playing because teams thought they lacked the smarts? Is the quarterback position in the NFL getting blacker?

Remember when you could count the number of black quarterbacks to play in a decade on one hand?

So the NFL is not racist, right? They are making strides, if only the league with 68 percent blacks and not lots of black quarterbacks stopped changing the measuring stick. But they didn’t.

Next stop, head coaches and general managers. As one person argued, 

“…the NFL used to be the standard for promoting minorities with the Rooney Rule, which requires teams to interview at least one minority candidate for head coach and general manager jobs. The rule has been a model for hiring both in and out of sports. The owner for whom the rule is named, Pittsburgh’s Dan Rooney, lived to its word when looking for a coach in 2007. He hired a black defensive coordinator from Minnesota, Mike Tomlin, who has since taken the Steelers to two Super Bowls.”

And the racist NFL responded. It hired quite a few black coaches. In fact, at the beginning of the 2018 season, 30 percent of head coaches were black. Then came black Monday.

Ironic the media would have the balls to call what happened on Monday, December 31, 2018 “Black Monday”. Because on that day FIVE black coaches were fired!

To put this in perspective, of the EIGHT coaches fired, FIVE of them were black. The NFL had their “black coach clean out day” on Black Monday. So now how will black players survive in the league. I mean, what self-respecting Negro wants to win a Super Bowl under a WHITE COACH?!

As for Black Monday, AZ Central went straight to race:

If you don’t see race as a factor in the firing of Arizona Cardinals coach Steve Wilks after just one season, that’s good. We agree on that.

But that doesn’t mean people who see it differently are wrong.

The NFL has a problem with race, and firings like Wilks’ help illustrate it.

Since 2000, 10 coaches have been dismissed after just one year. Three of them are black.

There’s never been a time in NFL history when 30 percent of head coaches are black. At most 25 percent of head coaches have been, which has happened twice, in 2011 and last year

Those are amazing statistics as I alluded earlier. What industry do you know that employs 68 percent blacks, most of whom are millionaires. Then, their bosses are 30 percent black, all millionaires.

Given that blacks are 13 percent of the population, the NFL should be sued by white folks, don’t you think.

CBS reported on the first black coach to get the axe in 2018, namely Hue Jackson.

Dumping Hue Jackson might have been the smartest move the Browns made this season. Since firing him in October, the Browns have gone 5-3 under interim coach Gregg Williams after losing their finale to the Ravens. Williams has been so successful that the Browns plan to seriously consider him for the full-time job, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora has reported.

It came as no surprise that several NFL head coaches (six at the time of publication were fired after Sunday’s games, and there are eight openings right now) were fired on Monday, of course—we call the day after the regular season ends “Black Monday” for that very reason.

Fox News offered insight on the other black coaches fired at the end of the 2018 regular season:

Todd Bowles

A few hours after the New York Jets wrapped up their season on Sunday with a 38-3 loss at New England, the team announced that Todd Bowles time with the team was over.

Bowles, 54, was hired in January 2015 after New York fired Rex Ryan.

The Jets got off to a solid start under Bowles, who guided them to a 10-6 record in his inaugural season, but New York just missed out of the playoffs in Year 1 and then fell far short in each subsequent season.

Van Joseph

After back-to-back double-digit losing seasons with the Denver Broncos, Vance Joseph was shown the door.

Joseph met with general manager John Elway on Monday after his team finished its 6-10 season and was dismissed with two years and about $6 million left on his contract.

Joseph acknowledged after the Broncos’ 23-9 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday — in which there were more than 12,000 no-shows at Mile High Stadium — that a two-season record of 11-21 wasn’t good enough by Broncos standards.

Steve Wilks

Arizona Cardinals Coach Steve Wilks told staff on Monday he will not be back with the team, the Arizona Republic reported.

Wilks was let go after completing a 3-13 season, which tied the franchise mark for the fewest wins in a season since the team moved to the state.

“I walked into this organization with integrity and, whenever that times comes, I am going to walk away with integrity,” he previously told The Republic about his job security.

Marvin Lewis

The Cincinnati Bengals fired coach Marvin Lewis after 16 years with the team, wrapping up what was the second-longest head coaching tenure in the league.

Lewis leaves Cincinnati with an 0-7 mark in the postseason, the worst record by an NFL coach. The Bengals haven’t won a playoff game since the 1990 season, tied with Washington for the fifth-longest streak of futility in league history.

A third straight losing season, punctuated by plummeting attendance, prompted change-resistant owner Mike Brown to finally cut ties with Lewis.

Let’s be clear. These coaches sucked. They got their shots and they blew it.

Nevertheless, here’s what The Guardian reported last year around this time, as they complained about the lack of black coaches:

NFL owners spent much of last fall dragging black players to their feet, trying to break the anthem protest lest the cry for racial equality grew too loud for the advertisers’ comfort. This winter, they’ve spent much time trying to keep white men in charge of their teams.

Another handful of head coaches has cycled out only to be replaced by a group just as white as the one before. In a league that is nearly 70% African American, only 25% of the head coaches are considered minorities, meaning the NFL has a lot of white coaches trying to balance the social justice concerns of their players with the bottom line of irritated owners.

This offseason was an opportunity for NFL teams. When seven coaches were either fired or retired at season’s end, the owners could have embarked on a diligent pursuit of talented African American men to coach their teams. Instead, they whitewashed the rule book, contorting themselves around good policy in search of familiar faces to fit beneath their headsets.

For seven open jobs, owners appear to have found six white men. In today’s world, in a league like the NFL, that’s a real feat, a test of ingenuity. But this is an offseason where the Detroit Lions dumped their most successful head coach in more than five decades, Jim Caldwell – a black man – who produced three winning seasons and two playoff berths in four years.

“We didn’t beat the really good teams,” said general manager Bob Quinn when he explained Caldwell’s firing.

I’ve played a multitude of sports. And I was coached by a variety of coaches of varying ethnic backgrounds. What I cared about most was winning with honor.

Ask yourself how far the NFL must go when the league is mostly black players, a significant number of black leadership, and yet this still isn’t enough for Leftists.

And you wonder why America became a loser? Not me. I know how America became a loser. But now we are winning again.
