The dark statements of DeSean Jackson | Touchdown News (NFL News)


Eagles catcher DeSean Jackson shared his anti-Semitic posts with his 1.4 million followers on his Instagram account. He notably published a picture of what he said was a quote from Adolf Hitler.

“Because white Jews (know) that blacks are the real children of Israel and to keep America secret, the Jews will blackmail America. They will extort America, their plan for world domination will not work if black people know who they were. “

This quote is not from Hitler, although Jackson seems to think it was authentic. The 33-year-old also shared quotes from Louis Farrakhan, the anti-Semitic and homophobic leader of the Nation of Islam. After receiving numerous criticisms, Jackson said that these quotes had been misinterpreted.

“Anyone who feels that I hate the Jewish community has taken my message the wrong way. I have no hatred in my heart towards anyone! “

He wanted to clear things up in a video on his Instagram account.

“My message was certainly not made so that anyone, of any race, could feel anything. In particular the Jewish community. I post stories all the time, and I probably should never have published anything from Hitler, because Hitler was a bad person, and I know it. “

His team, the Philadelphia Eagles, issued a statement in reaction to their player’s comments.

“We spoke with DeSean Jackson about his social media posts. Whatever his intentions, the messages he shared were offensive, harmful and absolutely appalling. They have no place in our society and are in no way tolerated or supported by the organization. We are disappointed and reiterated to DeSean the importance of not only apologizing but also using its platform to act to promote unity, equality and respect. We continue to assess the circumstances and are committed to continuing to have productive and meaningful conversations with DeSean, as well as with all of our players and staff, in order to educate, learn and grow. “

The league also released a reaction.

“DeSean’s comments were very inappropriate, offensive and conflicting and contrast sharply with the values ​​of respect, equality and inclusion in the NFL. We are in contact with the team handling the case with DeSean. “

Acknowledging his error, the receiver again apologized to the owner of the franchise, Jeff Lurie, and general manager Howie Roseman, both of Jewish faith. A message that goes beyond mere words. He promises to deepen his knowledge by working with organizations to make a difference in the community. Jackson and his officials also spoke to Philadelphia Rabbi Doniel Grodnitzky, according to John Clark of NBC Sports Philadelphia.

Many people, including former Eagles president Joe Banner, strongly condemned the comments, including on Twitter. In a very tense social context in the United States at present, this is a case in which the Eagles and DeSean Jackson would have done well. And that seems far from over for the receiver.
