Score one againt the PC Police folks. In possibly the biggest sign that racism is still dead, Riley Cooper graces the Philadelphia Eagles Calendar for White History Month.
Alot of you naysayers might think that this is just a concidence that Cooper is Mr. Febuary, specially considering that Riley has walked hand in hand with so many civil rights leaders he should be called “Mr. March.” But No NFL player has done more to raise awareness about how he is sorry for offending anyone then Cooper.
There are no coincidences in the meritocracy known as the NFL- Riley Cooper earned that spot. Hes the Jackie Robinson of formerley racist white players and the fact that hes breaking the color barrier of being the first white player honored for black history month ought to bring a tear to your eye.
Unfortunateley you cant even make a joke any more in this world without a PR guy coming out and telling you that your not supposed to laugh at it no matter how unbelevable it is, and asking you to please leave this screening of Gone Girl.
“If anything, it was an honest mistake,” Eagles PR rep Brett Strohsacker tells TMZ Sports.
“It never crossed our minds. I will look into this issue and see what the thought process was.”
Cant wait for the Patriots Chinese calendar featuring Aaron Hernendezs fiancees for the year of the rat folks.
