Michael Sam has a lot to learn about being a radical liberal activist.
After University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe resigned on Monday, Sam, the former Mizzou stand-out and first openly gay player in the NFL, told MSNBC that, “he did not experience any racial issues” while he was a student athlete at Mizzou:
ROBERTS: Michael, I think a lot of people — because of your personal story and the success you had at Mizzou — might be perplexed by this. To find out that there is an entrenched issue of social oppression or any type of racial injustice on the campus … During your time as a student, did you feel any type of undercurrent of entrenched racism on campus?
SAM: As a former student athlete here, I did not experience any racial issues here. But I did also see some … and nothing was done about it … It’s time for someone to do something about it, and this is what it’s all about.”
Hmm. So Sam didn’t personally experience any racial discontent on the very same campus that activist Jonathan Butler had declared “unlivable?” It certainly seemed livable for Sam, who was both black and gay, and thus would presumably be voted “the most likely-to-be-persecuted,” if you ask the #ConcernedStudents1950 crowd.
Sam telling MSNBC that he has “a lot of respect for [Wolfe], and it’s sad he had to leave under these circumstances,” was just icing on the cake.
Seriously, what an amateur. When asked whether or not racism exists? The answer is an unequivocal YES!! Especially, when the real answer is no.
