Outkick the Coverage founder and Fox Sports pundit Clay Travis trolled social justice warriors on Monday with a column about racism in sports.

The column titled, “It’s Racist To Talk About Benching Dak Prescott,” satirically trashes people claiming that it’s racist to bench the Dallas Cowboys quarterback in favor of former starter Tony Romo. (SLIDESHOW: The UFC’s Newest Octagon Girl Is Barely Dressed In These Jaw-Dropping Photos)

The outspoken pundit wrote in part:

So you can imagine how triggered I was when I took a break this morning from protesting on behalf of reparations and recounting racist white people’s votes in Wisconsin and Michigan — I’M WITH HER! — and looked up at my TV screen and saw that Dak Prescott had a bad football game. And I just knew that racists like Clay Travis were already talking about whether or not he should be benched for Tony Romo, a white man. 

This is what happens over and over again in the NFL, a white quarterback takes a black quarterback’s job on the football field even when that black quarterback deserves to keep it. The list is long and readily apparent to anyone who has been paying attention to the slavemaster’s conspiracy: Robert Griffin III, Mike Vick, Kordell Stewart, Vince Young, Byron Leftwich, JaMarcus Russell, David Garrard and other black men who have been violated by white oppressors. All of these men would have been in the hall of fame if they were white.

But they’re black. 

So they got benched. 

It’s blatant racism.

Travis completed the article by saying anybody that doesn’t support Prescott for the starting job is clearly a racist. (SLIDESHOW: UFC Star Arianny Celeste Is Nearly Naked For All Her Fans In These Pictures)

Prescott had preformed pretty solidly throughout the year, but his play against the New York Giants Sunday night was borderline laughable as the Giants defense didn’t allow him to do much. (SLIDESHOW: The UFC’s Newest Octagon Girl Is Barely Dressed In These Jaw-Dropping Photos)

With Romo waiting in the wings to reclaim his former spot, there’s little doubt that the pressure is now on Prescott to preform to keep his job. (SLIDESHOW: This Supermodel Might Be The Sexiest NFL Girlfriend)

However, for the time being the Cowboys have confirmed he will remain the starter.
