Has Al Sharpton Been Complaining About Double Standards For So Long That He Literally Can't Talk About Anything Else?
Ridiculous. Ridiculous, I tell you. We claim we are so concerned about equality while we let the NFL get away with banishing one man for domestic abuse and employing another that is guilty of the very same thing. Of course the white man that laid his hands on a woman can still get a job. Just another sign of the racism that continues to exist in this country. When will these blatant acts of discrimination in the workplace end? Wait, what's that you say? They are both black? Oh, my bad guys, must have taken a sip of Al's overly sweetened Kool-Aid there for a second.
Hey Al, what the fuck are you talking about man? Maybe go a day without crying about double standards and the phrase won't just dribble out of your mouth during very single conversation you have. Have a meaningful discussion that's not race related for once in your life and you won't be applying non-applicable prejudicial strategies that aren't even moderately close to existing in this situation. There is only one double standard that is keeping Ray Rice out of the NFL and Greg Hardy in the NFL. It's the same double standard that keeps me out of the NFL and Drew Brees in the NFL. One is really good at football, and one is not as good at football. They both served their suspensions, although it's debatable whether or not they were harsh enough, and they both are able to be signed by NFL teams. Ray Rice isn't being held back by anything but his talent. Talent that would have to be far less excessive if he wasn't caught on video punching his future wife. Greg Hardy isn't in the NFL because he's a middling pass rusher. He's in the league because, unfortunately, he's one of the best the NFL has to offer. If Ray Rice could say the same then we likely aren't talking about Al Sharpton's frivolous utterance of the term "double standard".
