If you are looking to pick a fight with a black man, a Kenny Chesney concert is the place to do it. At least that’s what Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver, Riley Cooper thinks. Video footage has surfaced of a drunken Riley Cooper attending a Kenny Chesney concert at Lincoln Financial Field.
Cooper and friends were in a semi-private area near the stage. You can’t tell what caused Riley to become agitated but from the video you can see & hear the NFL star yell “I will jump that fence and fight every nigger here, bro” while pointing at the crowd and camera. Yes, you heard that “E & R” correctly. He went there.
And like clockwork, Riley Cooper takes to his Twitter account to issue an apology.
Okay, look Coop. If you think black people don’t know that white people sit around and call us “Nigg-ER” you are wrong. We know. You have the right to say whatever you want. Just know that if you say it around us, we receive the right to lay the hands of Black Jesus on you. Learn to pick your battles. I’m quite interested to see how the NFL will handle this. Given that a good 80% maybe 90% of the league is African American, someone is going to make an example out of Cooper. I can almost be sure of it.
As far as this “apology,” are ou apologizing because what you said was disgusting or because you got caught and now we all know you’re racist?
