Before we get into this, here’s what I found really interesting. Former Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley and his wife Courtney are finished.
I didn’t say surprised. Only interesting. When Finley played for the Packers there were rampant rumors that he stepped out on her… incessantly.
Well, they’re clearly done now. She just mentioned how she’s been left alone to raise their four boys.
How we got to this information is another matter entirely. You won’t be surprised to know it was because Finley opened his mouth.
Earlier this week, Finley went on Twitter and criticized guys who are sitting in protest during the National Anthem, this year. Naturally, that tweet has now been deleted.
I ignored the whole thing because I’m tired of talking about this shit. And by this shit, I mean all of the political bullshit and idiots that perpetrate it daily in this country. But kudos to you Michael Bennett and Marshawn Lynch for making a statement and standing up for what you believe in.
Finley also went on TMZ to defend his stance.
And then Courtney went the hell off!
This serves as a reminder @jermichaelf88 in case you have forgotten; you are black. The athletes (foremost people) you are telling to sit down (or stand) and shut up are the very men that are protesting for your safety and equality in a country that has nearly revoked that right based on your skin color. As a biracial mother of 4 black boys, that have been left to be raised by a single mother, I have deep and desperate gratitude for those that use their platform to fight for our community’s justice, safety, & equality. Your social media comments are absurd & offensive not only to me but to a nation that is crippled with hate. Don’t attempt to silence men that are brave enough to be a voice to those that have had their cries muffled. Don’t be so pathetically thirsty for attention that you choose to devalue another man’s motives. Don’t choose to be so insulting and imply professional athletes have no place in changing the world. Most importantly, don’t forget to look in the mirror and see that you too are black and have an obligation to derail racism as best you can for yourself and others. If you don’t want to be part of the resolution to the racial inequalities in this country that’s on you, but for the sake of our 4 sons, don’t be part of the problem. I pray you will reevaluate your stance.
Notice how she inconspicuously threw in this one?
As a biracial mother of 4 black boys, that have been left to be raised by a single mother…
I sure as hell did. Way to be a man, Big Fin!
As you probably expected, Finley has since backtracked on his comments or something…
I've taken my own advice & reached out to someone, so I can educate myself on how to contribute to solving racial injustices in America.
Seems a little contrite to me.
But hey, what would you expect from Jermichael Finley?
