DeSean Jackson says anti-Semitic post was taken ‘the wrong’ way

Desean Jackson should be punished for anti-semetic remarks

It feels like this should probably go unsaid in 2020, but sharing and endorsing an apparent quote from Adolf Hitler is probably a bad idea. That’s a lesson that Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson somehow learned the hard way on Tuesday when he found himself in hot water following some ill-advised social media posts.
  • Jackson posted two different pictures with positive remarks about Louis Farrakhan, the late Nation of Islam leader who has been identified as anti-Semitic
  • The WR also posted a quote he attributed to Hitler, in which “white Jews” are accused of trying to “blackmail America”
  • “(They) will extort America,” the quote read, “(and) their plan for world domination won’t work if the Negroes know who they were”
  • Jackson deleted the post with the quote attributed to Hitler, but later re-posted it with Hitler’s name blocked out
You’ll be shocked to hear that people didn’t exactly receive Jackson’s posts well. After a significant amount of backlash, he posted a series of apologies, saying he never meant to offend the Jewish community. (As a tip for the future: Praising supposed Hitler quotes is a good way to avoid that!)
  • Jackson: “Anyone who feels I have hate towards the Jewish community took my post the wrong way. I have no hatred in my heart toward no one! Equality. Equality.”
  • Philadelphia Eagles statement: “We have spoken with DeSean Jackson about his social media posts. Regardless of his intentions, the messages he shared were offensive, harmful, and absolutely appalling. They have no place in our society, and are not condoned or supported in any way by the organization. We are disappointed and we reiterated to DeSean the importance of not only apologizing, but also using his platform to take action to promote unity, equality, and respect.”

At the end of the day, it seems like Jackson was trying to share a message that he thought would empower the Black community… but, man, what an absolutely terrible and misguided way to go about it. And him saying he “probably shouldn’t post anything that Hitler did because Hitler was a bad person and I know that” sounds like a third grader apologizing to his teacher rather than a 33-year-old professional athlete who should know better.
