Just straight up racial profiling/stereotyping and, in regards to the NFL, it could mean a troubling trend.

DeSean was a salary dump and the media has jumped on the gang thing in pretty revolting fashion. He has no gang affiliation (or the loosest of connections if you reach and reach and reach) and was cut for no such thing. What he did have was a massive bonus (I forget the exact number) the Eagles were not willing to pay him, they cut him the day before it kicked in. The Eagles were preparing for that move all off-season, primarily with the acquisition of Darren Sproles and re-signing of Jeremy Maclin.

The only people who believe DeSean is a gang banger are the guys on ESPN that are talking about him rejuvenating his career following his best season and 5+ years of no off-field issues.

(I know you weren't calling DeSean a gang banger, you were saying that he was cut for his loose affiliation which isn't the case despite being drilled into people's brains on ESPN. It was a business move and there is no disturbing trend anywhere. Sports media does not care, they will find whatever story they can get the most squeeze out of)

As far as Pusha T, I know nothing about this at all

Don't give a fuck about Pusha T, but don't try and connect dots. Eagles fan here and I'm very, very tired of hearing about race and the DeSean cut.

Yeah of course an article on an Eagles fan board is gonna jump to the team's defense and try to point to every other possible reason besides race and the rumored gang ties. Not taking a side here either way but that's not a credible unbiased source by any stretch of the imagination.

You are feeding into the media. The Eagles never came out and said anything about gang affiliation. It's the media and the people who want to see it how they want to that are filling in the blanks.

An an undeniable fact in the situation: we forgave Vick for slaughtering animals, but we are going to hold Cooper accountable for a slur he used now because we're trying to rationalize the situation for a very talented play maker? I'm not the person that is more biased than the people standing behind Jackson.

Would you like to hear from veteran Brian Dawkins? Go on. One of the Eagles most reputable players stands behind the team.

What if I told you we didn't have to insert race into every situation that occurs?

DeSean Jackson thought he could sign to the Redskins and take RG3's number. That is beyond selfish. If a team wants to build a team and want to cut selfish players, that's the bottom line. No racial involvement whatsoever. The people that are putting the race into this are the issue.
