Jameis Winston’s Legendary Moment Derailed by Post Game Speech Talk

Last night Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston led his team to a comeback victory over the Auburn Tigers in the Rose Bowl. His statline wasn’t anything spectacular as he went 20 for 35 passing for 237 yards and 2 TDs.

When the pressure was the greatest though, Winston shined bright going 6/7 for 77 yards and threw the game winning TD to Kelvin Benjamin.

That should be the story. Today we should be celebrating a Heisman winner who brought his team back and bucked a trend of disappointing Heisman performances by a QB in the title game. Instead we are talking about this:

dee hater tweet

Unfortunately Dee Dee was not alone in this line of thinking but her words do strike a particular chord. Her choice of words are all too familiar to people of color who are not “speaking properly.” And if you are going to make the argument that her words are harmless,then answer me a simple question: why did she delete the tweet?

For what it’s worth Dee Dee didn’t have anything to say publicly when this speech was given by her son’s teammate:

Is that because it was a teammate of her son AJ or because we didn’t catch her? If the same thing was said about her son, how would she react?

But wait, here is her son sounding not so eloquent himself:

To her credit Dee Dee did “apologize if she offended anyone” and is “far from  racist.” It’s funny though, she didn’t apologize for calling the kid stupid but don’t you call her a racist! I bet she has a black friend too. Look. it is one thing to make jokes about him being nervous or sounding like a young Ray Lewis but what she said crossed the line.

As always I hope we can keep moving beyond these types of situations but yet again I’m reminded of how far we have to go.

  1. Thank you Dee Dee Kent McCarron Bonner McCarron (back to previous married name because NFL) for showing the world your ugly bitterness & disgusting hypocrisy. She may not be *racist but she is infamous for attacking people on Twitter who even constructively & professionally critique AJ. (*tweets about Jameis sent by her nephew & favorited by other son Corey & Katherine show how much they hate him.)

    She promotes herself as a charitable soul who loves children yet has never, not once, tried to promote the efforts to find her brother Dustin Kent’s niece, Brittney Wood – even before he was arrested the first time. Brittney disappeared almost two years ago from his neighborhood.

    Dee Dee and her family knew Brittney (obviously) but has never even so much as sent a RT about her. Nor has she spoken out against her brother’s multiple charges of [email protected] & inc3st of multiple children under 12 (large family ped0 ring). She has never distanced herself from her parents who housed him & are likely the “mysterious” benefactor paying for his very expensive private attorney… unless the longterm coverup goes into even deeper pockets.

    A note to Dee Dee (albeit unlikely you’d ever read here) – your brother Dustin goes back to court again in Baldwin County on Friday for five of his numerous indictments, correct? Here’s hoping that karma bus keeps on rolling through the charges in Mobile County!

    I also hope you find some of that integrity you always preach about and finally try to do some good for the child victims in your own family. MCSO & KlaasKIDS are still looking for Brittney’s body in Dustin’s old neighborhood – your dad still owns the trailer, right? Maybe you can use that as an opportunity to finally contribute.

  2. Man up north we clown southerners all the time, black white or whatever. I don’t see how its racist when a white person does it. Was she out of line, yes, but her tweet is no worst than some of the things that I read you yourself say Littal. Racism is still an issue, but this is not one of them.

  3. Here is a quote from Dr. Boyce Watkins: “The wealth extraction from the black community by the NCAA easily exceeds one billion dollars.”

    In addition to the fact that BCS executives like John Junker made millions of dollars plus free luxurious, private country club memberships is proof that college sports is a monumental scam similar to what Bernard Madeoff constructed!
