    Raiders owner Mark Davis under fire for "I can breathe" tweet

    Cut you damn hair already



    In the aftermath of the verdicts announced in the George Floyd murder case on Tuesday in Minnesota against former police officer Derek Chauvin, sports teams and leagues have jumped into the fray to offer statements in support of the guilty verdicts.
    The Las Vegas Raiders went a different route, taking a pithy slogan that was meant to reference Floyd’s dying words “I can’t breathe” by turning it into something else?

    TwitterThe Raiders received pelters for their “I can breathe” statement, which appeared to try and spark a triumphant tone that accountability prevailed in this case, but ended up sounding glib and insensitive in reference to the man who was murdered.
    While many waited for the Raiders to hastily erase the tweet, as often happens in situations like these, it turned out team owner Mark Davis claims “full responsibility” for the controversial tweet.


    In addition, Davis said he was trying to use the words Floyd’s brother Philonise used in a press conference after the verdict on Tuesday. Furthermore, he has no plans to erase the tweet.


    But Davis also said he was not aware that the words “I can breathe” have been used mockingly by some white people in response to Black people killed by police in the past.


    And as a result, Davis said he understood that the slogan sounded less celebrating a just verdict in a single case and to many, rather tone-deaf in a broader context.


    It’s worth noting that the Davis family, including Mark, and the Raiders have a long history of racial progressivism in comparison to the rest of the NFL. Mark Davis was one of the first people in a position of power in the league to support Black Lives Matter and has steadfastly supported efforts to promote racial equality, including financially.
    But in this case, the owner tried to offer his support and it fell flat, something he has acknowledged. It certainly happens, but hopefully everyone can learn from the experience.

    That drug addict fuk was saying he couldn't breathe as soon as they put the cuffs on him. Enough about George Floyd, world is a better place without that loser. No more pregnant women will have a gun held to there stomach during a armed robbery by Floyd. He is rotting in hell now. RIP. I can breathe

    Stake1 is a known name changer and troll. Also past posting bets. Never has a play until 7th inning or later. Then the fake tickets come out. Busted this fraud.

    You are Vitterd 24/7.

    It’s been posted here several times. Guy was loaned 3,000 bet points by another poster and it was never paid back. The other poster was just here asking for it and beerman ignored him.

    You've lost all credibility here, I need screenshots and links to the thread. Otherwise you're just talking out of your ass again

    I think once the screen shot of my 2.5 line was posted( that you said wasn’t available anywhere).....that ended any cred you thought you have here. Remember you said “ the one place I didn’t check”. Lmao. Then uscphilly guy posted the same line.

    Seriously, you’re a broke loser and should just go away. Those who know you, think the same. It’s not just me. Keep stalking though. Your PM’s are fun to read. I have access.
