Fox Sports writer and commentator Jason Whitlock, who is black, did not mince words when he wrote an opinion piece about the events at the University of Missouri and the resignation of university president Tim Wolfe.
Whitlock referred to the protests as “bullshit” built on “lies stacked on top of lies.”
The sports writer began his piece by drawing contrast between the Mizzou protesters who are receiving national media attention, to the death of nine-year-old Tyshawn Lee who has received relatively little media attention.
Whitlock said in part:
The execution of an innocent black boy draws the attention of a handful of local dignitaries while the death of a black teenager foolish enough to wrestle a cop for control of a gun helps foment unrest on a nearby college campus seven months after then-attorney general Eric Holder destroyed the fallacy of “Hands Up Don’t Shoot.”
Lies stacked on top of lies create the bullshit we’re witnessing in Columbia, Missouri. Clever faculty members, in my opinion, baited a small group of misguided black students into stirring a racial shitstorm strong enough to attract Twitter-addicted journalists looking for their next relevancy hit off the Black Lives Matter crack pipe.
The absurdity of the past week at Mizzou couldn’t be duplicated on South Park.
Whitlock also targeted the protesters’ claims of rampant racism throughout the University of Missouri saying:
A redneck showing his ass with verbal garbage while driving a truck isn’t racism. It’s a redneck showing his ass. Racism is a system of exploitation rooted in race. The NCAA amateurism charade is a solid example. Walter Byers, the white conservative modern architect of the NCAA, described the system he created this way in his 1997 memoir:
“Today the NCAA Presidents Commission is preoccupied with tightening a few loose bolts in a worn machine, firmly committed to the neo-plantation belief that the enormous proceeds from the college games belong to the overseers (administrators) and supervisors (coaches). The plantation workers performing in the arena may only receive those benefits authorized by the overseers.”
Whitlock, who previously labeled Thomas Sowell a “house negro” and supports gun control, also challenged protesters to go to the ghettos of Chicago and create a “safe space” there. He even asked in the article which place needs a safe space more, the University of Missouri or inner-city Chicago.

Whitlock ended his piece by arguing modern-day liberals have reduced racism to a bunch of “code words” and “dog whistles” instead of the politics and policies that Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks fought for.
