New York Daily News
Wanna distract public attention from your school district's lousy academic ratings? Shift the topic to Colin Kaepernick by writing a letter to the Washington Redskins imploring them to give him a tryout! And say you're teaching your students valuable lessons in the process. That's the thinking of seven members of the Prince George’s County, Maryland school board who seem more concerned with social justice than academics.
In the three years since the mass shooting by ISIS supporters in San Bernardino, California, the liberal media have grown increasingly hostile to the gracious tradition of praying for shooting victims, suggesting prayer is an obstacle to their left-wing gun control agenda.
In ridiculing President Donald Trump and NBA basketball player Kevin Durant for their strained relations with the media, New York Daily News sports columnist Carron J. Phillips compares them to dictators and bullies.
Building off a Monday rant by ESPN's Max Kellerman, New York Daily News writer Chuck Modiano demanded on Thursday the New York Giants sign you know who: cop-hater Colin Kaepernick. Since NFL free agency began in spring 2017, one liberal media type after another demanded teams sign the Castro-loving, America-bashing, former anthem kneeler even though Kaepernick and his copycat protesters have damaged the NFL's ratings.
As the 50th anniversary of the protest-marred 1968 Olympic Games nears, the New York Daily News' Carron J. Phillips and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are glorifying Colin Kaepernick, as well as the two disgraced sprinters who staged a black power salute during the national anthem in Mexico City. The International Olympic Committee stripped Tommie Smith and John Carlos of their medals and expelled them from the Olympic Village. A 1968 headline in the Evening News declared, "Games are Rocked by Black Power." Media reporting has shifted 180 degrees since then, as many reporters sympathize with radical social justice warriors.
Whining about racism is what the New York Daily News' Carron J. Phillips does for a profession, even if he has to invent it. Today's whine is about how African-Americans Serena Williams (seen berating the umpire at the U.S. Open) and Alabama football quarterback Jalen Hurts always have to be the bigger person, no matter how pained they are by criticism, because they are black. Phillips brings in two world-class whiners and race-baiters, LeBron James and Jemele Hill, to help him make a case for racism perpetrated on black athletes.
The New York Daily News joins a growing chorus of sports media raising the argument that Nike has hijacked Colin Kaepernick's social justice protest against racial inequality and police brutality. Dave Zirin, the "fire-bellowing" sports editor of The Nation, charged that Kaepernick's cause can't be "branded" by Nike. Kevin Blackistone, writing his version of that narrative for the Daily News, and a frequent panelist on ESPN's Around the Horn talk program, stunningly says Nike was never about social justice.
Today in the 21st century, we have a serious problem with white male sexists and racists who are dictating what women and minorities can wear on and off their playing fields. They're putting evolution on hold with their micro-aggressions of sexism and racism, complains Carron J. Phillips, the sports, race and social issues columnist for The New York Daily News.
To Carron J. Phillips of The New York Daily News and many African-Americans, Jim Brown had always been an icon. One of the greatest pro football players of all time, Brown, now 82, was a voice for the culture as a civil rights activism with a legacy like none other. However, since he's voiced some support for President Trump and been an opponent of national anthem protests, he's less noteworthy, wrote Phillips.
Jaclyn Peiser’s front-page New York Times autopsy for a fading New York tabloid, “Daily News, Lean but Brassy New York Staple, Cuts Staff in Half.” Peiser mourned the brutal downsizing announced at the local tabloid rival whose hard-left turn in recent years failed to save it. The right-leaning New York Post, on the other hand, is clearly loathed by the Times.
The New York Daily News announced on Tuesday that the tabloid-style newspaper -- best known for its bizarre front pages slamming Republican President Donald Trump -- to “fundamentally restructure” its focus on “its digital audience.” A memo released by the newspaper’s executives stated: “We are reducing today the size of the editorial team by approximately 50 percent and re-focusing much of our talent on breaking news -- especially in areas of crime, civil justice and public responsibility.”
The National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) is not fighting hard enough for social justice and is failing Colin Kaepernick yet again. But college football players are woke on America's racism. That's the latest complaint by Carron J. Phillips, who makes a living from race grievances as the sports, race and social issues columnist for the New York Daily News.
