Brandon Marshall Loses Another Endorsement Deal

bm

Denver Broncos’ Brandon Marshall has lost his second endorsement deal for joining the protest with Colin Kaepernick. The first endorsement he lost was right after Thursday’s game when Air Academy Federal Credit Union announced their separation from Marshall.

According to BallerAllert.com cable provider CenturyLink, on Monday made the decision to pull Marshall’s endorsement. The company released the following statement. “America is anchored in the right of individuals to express their beliefs. While we acknowledge Brandon’s right, we also believe that whatever issues we face, we also occasionally must stand together to show our allegiance to our common bond as a nation. In our view, the national anthem is one of those moments. For this reason, while we wish Brandon the best this season, we are politely terminating our agreement with him.”

SMH…. The contradiction in that statement!

So let me get this right…… You want to penalize someone for taking a stance on the unjust treatment of people (who are black) in America… Okay, cool.  I could throw out the “if he were white and decided to sit or kneel this wouldn’t be the case” but I’ll leave that where it is and just keep it all the way real for you. There www.cheapambienpriceonline.com have been plenty of players who have done a lot worse and still were able to keep their endorsements… Shall I give examples??.. Tom Brady.

In fact, the NFL at one point didn’t allow a single black player to play from 1933-1946. The only reason the NFL allowed black players to play was because the L.A. Rams faced pressure from local black newspapers and the city’s stadium commission after the team relocated from Cleveland.

In order to create change you must take a stand for what you believe in and that is exactly what Brandon Marshall, Colin Kaepernick and others in the league are doing. So if companies continue to drop player endorsements cool, keep up the good work! Remember what one won’t do another will and when that money starts to slow down you’ll come running back but guess what?! WE won’t be where you left us!

Brandon Marshall’s response was perfect!.. “I just lost another endorsement…. “But it’s not going to make me lose any sleep. … I understand there will be things that come up, criticism and support. I just have to do what I think is right.”

Keep strong Brandon we’ve got your back!

Social Media Slams Colin Kaepernick But Proves His Point

Colin Kapernick shouldn’t have to say much more after folks took to social media in response to him sitting during the national anthem. His reason is to stand for people in this country who face the ugliness of oppression.

He said this past Sunday “This country stands for freedom, liberty, justice for all — and it’s not happening for all right now.”

Many people took to Twitter in response to his statement. The funny thing is in their anger and even hatred for the San Fransisco quarterback they pretty much proved his point!

NFL Player DeAndre Levy Addresses Rape Culture

This morning I was on a nice internet stroll when I came across a dynamic statement made by NFL player DeAndre Levy in a blog on The Players Tribune about the culture of rape.

DeAndre Levy Linebacker for the Detroit Lions wrote a blog “MAN UP” which was posted yesterday. In the blog he discussed the attitude toward women when it comes to rape and how it is the men who are solely responsible for their actions. Just because a woman dresses a certain that does not give a man the right to rape her.

“It’s truly astounding how many awful things that occur in this world because men are afraid of appearing weak.” He goes on to say “So what’s the opposite of weakness? Power.” – DeAndre Levy
