Halloween nowadays brings a bevy of social media content as people show off their over-the-top costumes in an effort to go viral. This year, Antonio Brown’s NFL exploits and unemployment was a popular costume choice for many.
However, some fans chose to go beyond just impersonating Antonio Brown and referred to the Pro bowl receiver as “Antonio Clown.”
The costume could be considered creative as the receiver is jobless and has legal issues pending, but a majority of fans chose to go with the clown moniker.
The unsettling aspect is that most of these fans are predominantly white and seem to harbor vitriol towards Brown. The issue is the vast majority of the costumes lack in creativity and demean Antonio Brown without an attempt at tying back to his NFL antics much if at all.
There’s just something hella uneasy about a bunch of bitter white folks looking to demean a black multi-millionaire because he didn’t just shut his mouth and catch the ball.
Many will argue Brown brought this upon himself with his actions, but does it really make him a clown for wanting to leave the Pittsburgh Steelers and subsequently the Raiders? We can all probably relate to not feeling like a work environment was right for us and wanting to move in a new direction.
Patriots owner Robert Kraft has his own scandal, yet allegations against Brown led to his release from the Patriots.
This narrative does not help a post-Colin Kaepernick NFL at all in which the big wigs operate as plantation owners and any field hand player that dares to speak up and have an opinion will be punished and ostracized.
Antonio Brown certainly could have acted differently in many instances and he has to deal with that as he can no longer find a team to play for. On the other hand, the toxicity of racially charged NFL fans rears its ugly head yet again.
Adam Thielen calls out Kirk Cousins and the narrative is not him being a diva. Andrew Luck chooses to retire after training camp and gets paid his guaranteed money.
Ask yourself if Antonio Brown on the Steelers (prior to Raiders saga) before all of this would receive the same treatment in either of those scenarios. The answer is no. We all saw when he critiqued Ben Roethlisberger and how that quickly manifested.
Brown caught wind of his mockers and seemed to take it in stride on Twitter, playfully jabbing at fans who dressed as him.
No matter how you feel about Antonio Brown it is clear there is a negative attitude that many fans take towards Black players in the NFL who are outspoken, whether it’s for a good cause like Kaepernick or more selfish personal gain like Antonio Brown.
Both are met with hatred and no attempt of understanding. Hopefully, the fan base can grow to the point of respecting and understanding the men under these helmets.
When Remy Ma is not active actively playing the purpose of mother, fact Tv star or rapper, she’s chaotic with her work as 1 of the hosts on State of the Lifestyle, the bootleg, hip-hop model of The Watch.
During a modern episode, Extra fat Joe’s responses about the blackness of the Latinx group and significantly, his ethnic track record (he’s Cuban and Puerto Rican), ended up brought up.
Jinx, an additional of the hosts on SOTC, felt some style of way about Joe employing the n-word in his new music. But Remy Ma, who considers Joe her “brother” and long-time mate, predictably came to his protection.
“He’s Black, like, that is it,” explained Remy. “Joe is Black and which is it. Interval.”
“I see him as a Black particular person, to me,” chimed in co-host Eboni Williams.
“That’s however not the same factor,” explained Jinx.
You can observe the whole discussion participate in out on the State of the Society down below.
So here’s the point: Extra fat Joe is suitable that MOST Latinx persons have African descent and hence, can and should be regarded as Black. And if they are Black, then logic follows that they can be opted in to making use of the n-word.
But here’s the issue: Not all Latinx men and women are black or at the pretty minimum, visibly Black.
Latinx is a cultural designation. Latinx men and women are a combination of European, African and Indigenous People.
So though it’s real that A lot of Latinx men and women are black, there are some who aren’t and some who are but really do not search it. So the problem then turns into: How black does somebody have to be to use the n-term?
That concern was in no way questioned or addressed, but that’s truly what lies at the root of the question.
Or maybe, just probably, we really should all (black, white, Latinx or otherwise) end building complicated regulations on who can use an offensive term and just decide out of this convoluted attempt to “reclaim” the n-word. It ain’t value the hassle.
