Teh stoopid is strong with this one!
When will the liberal media learn? It’s an evergreen question because they never do. This time around, Deadspin is the perpetrator of a race hoax targeting a literal child who was just trying to enjoy a night out at a Kansas City Chiefs game, and senior writer Carron (yes, really) Phillips has already doubled down on his smear amid justified blowback for his story.
“The NFL needs to speak out against the Kansas City Chiefs fan in Black face, native headdress,” was Phillips’ story on Deadspin, run with a side profile photo of a young boy with black paint on his face.

The ‘angles’ of this story are just plain ridiculous! And trying to spin it to blame the CHILD for dressing in his favorite team’s colors and headdress is beyond the pale!!! I’m truly glad to see people/fans pushing back on this idjit and pointing out that fans for EVERY team paint their faces/bodies/other body parts in the two colors of their teams! And the whole stealing Native American symbols isn’t flying either.
Unlike the Washington team and others in other sports, KC hasn’t bowed to the progs and changed their team name or symbol (Good for them!).
I remember when Florida State got jumped on about the Seminoles name/likeness and the Seminole Indians spoke out saying they APPROVED of the linkage and profited from it! I note that particular ‘charge’ hasn’t been brought up again… snerk…
There is also a move afoot (ahorse) by other Native American tribes to have the Washington team reverse the decision and go back to the Redskins.
I just hope it works!!!
