Minority Owners Of Washington Redskins Looking To Sell Stake In Team

Published

on

Three individual minority owners of the Washington Redskins professional football team are looking to sell off their shares in the team amid controversy over the team’s name. Again.

Yes, it seems the Redskins are forever caught in a loop of having to defend their team name from the gaggle of social justice warriors running around the nation screaming and crying about faux systemic racism and crusading for causes like renaming sports teams in order to make themselves feel important and like they have a purpose.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

Businessmen Robert Rothman, Dwight Schar, and Frederick Smith have hired an investment banking firm to conduct the search for potential buyers, which, according to one unnamed source, was happening because they are “not happy being a partner” of majority owner Daniel Snyder, the Washington Post reported. ProFootballTalk first reported that Schar and Smith were trying to sell their share of the team on Sunday.

Rothman is chairman and CEO of Black Diamond Capital, a private investment company; Schar is chairman of NVR Inc., one of the largest homebuilder companies in the country; and Smith is the chairman, president, and CEO of FedEx, which has a long-standing partnership with the football franchise. Together, they account for about 40% of the team’s ownership. The remaining stake rests with Snyder, his mother, and his sister.

The organization said on Friday that it will conduct a “thorough review” of the team’s name amid new demands that it stops referring to the team as the Redskins, which critics view as being racist and insensitive to Native Americans.

Snyder released a statement last Friday saying, “This process allows the team to take into account not only the proud tradition and history of the franchise but also input from our alumni, the organization, sponsors, the National Football League, and the local community it is proud to represent on and off the field.”

Snyder bought the team back in 1999 and has been resisting the call to rename the franchise. He’s only started to move on this after receiving enormous pressure from both the public and the corporate sponsors who help fund the team, much of this pressure the result of the death of George Floyd while in police custody.

FedEx, which has authority over the naming rights of the team’s stadium, released a statement late last Thursday that said, “We have communicated to the team in Washington our request that they change the team name.”

There was a study done a few years back from the Washington Post, where lots of Native American folks were asked whether the name of the team offended them. A whopping 9 out of 10 said that it didn’t and was actually a source of pride for them.

So who, exactly, is offended by this? White left-wing crusaders. Makes sense, right? They need to feel important and have latched on to this little “cause,” having created the hoopla from scratch to justify their own existence.

Talk about hubris.

Isn’t that an example of the “white savior complex” that the left supposedly hates, yet engages in every single day?

The newest corporation to indulge wokeism is cereal company Kellogg’s which has just launched a cereal to push transgenderism on kids. The new flavor is an amalgam of several of their cereal brands all in the same box called “All Together.” Not only does this push the woke LGBTQ agenda, but is also give kids a spot to write their own “pronouns” on the box: https://twitter.com/robbystarbuck/status/1392669858718965766 According to gay website Advocate: Retailing for $4, Together With Pride will be on supermarket shelves in May, just prior to the month of LGBTQ+ festivities. For every purchase, Kellogg’s will donate $3 to GLAAD. For the donation to occur, patrons must upload a copy of their receipt to KelloggsFamilyRewards.com. The 7.8-ounce box is full of a rainbow variety of heart-shaped cereal bites and even edible glitter. Kellogg’s famous cereal figures are gathered on the exterior illustration, including Toucan Sam, Tony the Tiger, and the Rice Krispies elves, Snap, Crackle, and Pop. “We believe that all young people and those young at heart deserve an environment where they can grow up to be their best selves,” the caption on that box read. “That’s why we’ve joined forces with GLAAD by going purple on Spirit Day to stand up against bullying in all forms, and support a more accepting world for LGBTQ youth.” There is nothing new here, at least for Kellogg’s. This company has spent bullions funding hardcore, left-wing causes for decades. And they do this limited-edition gay cereal dealio just about every year.

Survey: Liberals Wildly Over-Estimate Cop Shootings and Crime

A new poll finds that left-wingers have no idea how many police-involved shootings there are and how much crime there is.

Trump Derangement Syndrome

A new poll finds that left-wingers have no idea how many police-involved shootings there are and how much crime there really is in America today. For instance, fewer than 50 unarmed suspects were killed by police in 2020, but when asked how many they think there were, liberals falsely put the number in the hundreds. Liberals also get just about all their facts wrong about crime in general, with the leftists imagining it is hundreds of times higher than it really is. A new Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports survey found that half of the respondents who said they rely on CNN and MSNBC for their news can’t get their facts right. For instance, the lefties think that more than 100 unarmed black people were killed by police last year. On the other hand, only 22 percent of Fox viewers thought that that more than 100 unarmed blacks were shot by police. Specifically, the survey asked: “Approximately how many unarmed African Americans were fatally shot by police in 2020? Less than 50, 50 to 100, 500 to 1,000, 1,000 to 5,000, 5,000 to 10,000, or more than 10,000.” Twenty-four percent of CNN viewers and 19% of MSNBC viewers thought cops fatally shot more than 500 unarmed black suspects last year. Only 9% percent of Fox News viewers thought so. Fox News viewers (60%) and talk radio listeners (60%) were nearly three times more likely than MSNBC (19%) or CNN (23%) viewers to correctly estimate the number of unarmed black people shot and killed by police in 2020 as less than 50. “There is a strong correlation between a likely voter’s favorite television news outlet and his or her understanding of basic facts about police shootings and homicides involving rifles,” Justin Haskins of the Heartland Institute said of their results. “Compared…
