Jets receiver says Tom Brady got free pass because he’s white; ‘Black Players Matter?’

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is just the latest NFL player who can can thank “white privilege” for saving him from league discipline, a New York Jets player charged Tuesday night.

Screenshot (353)On Showtime’s roadcast of “Inside the NFL,” wide receiver Brandon Marshall said Brady’s four-game suspension for his role in the “Deflate-gate” scandal was reversed because white players are treated more leniently than black players.

Marshall, who is a regular panelist on the program, said he wasn’t alone in his opinion that race played into Brady’s ability to avoid punishment, according to ESPN.

“This is not just from our locker room, this is from locker rooms across the states,” he said. “This is how guys are feeling; this is not just my opinion. These are conversations I’m having with guys.”

Marshall’s comments came as the panel discussed how players inside the league would ultimately view the recent decision by a judge to reverse Brady’s four game suspension by the league.

“I think that there are three different types of players’ views in this thing,” Brandon said.

“No. 1 is the fighter. I think there are guys in the fight with Tom. When one player’s rights are upheld, then all players’ rights are upheld. It’s not about what he did, if he’s right or wrong. It’s more about the process,” he said.

“The second is cowards — I call them cowards. That’s the guys that are afraid to face Tom Brady. They want him suspended; I don’t believe in that.”

The third, Marshall claimed, was “the race card.”

“There are a lot of players out there that believe that white players — specifically, at the quarterback position — are treated differently,” he argued.

The problem with that argument, of course, is that in Brady’s case the decision was made by a federal judge who was ruling against the league.

In other words, it didn’t make any sense at all.

But that’s just logic.

The only question left is how long it will be until the “social justice warriors” begin making “Black Players Matter” signs.
