Reports today say Miami and the Texans have agreed in principle to a deal for Deshaun Watson, but the Dolphins want clarity on his legal issues before going through with it. Another report states NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said the league does not have the necessary information to put Texans QB Deshaun Watson on the commissioner’s exempt list, which allows Watson to be paid but not play. While his legal issues play themselves out. This is coming on the heels of finding out the NFL knew about Jon Gruden’s racist, sexist, homophobic e-mails to another league executive on the Washington football team’s e-mail since July and said nothing even after they were leaked. In addition, the league has refused to make public what else they found in their review of over 600,000 e-mails proving once again the NFL is nothing but lip service when it comes to diversity. They can put all the slogans they want in end zones, run commercials until the cows come home about their commitment to change, but in the end, nothing fundamentally changes within the NFL’s good old boy network, and the NFL should be ashamed of that…but sadly they won’t be.
In the Matrix Morpheous tells the Merovingian Everything begins with a choice. To which he responds: No, wrong. Choice is an illusion created between those with power and those without.
When it comes to those who have made the vaccine some sort of political statement they often say this is America I’m free and I have the choice to do with my body what I chose to do. But the reality is they have been told by those in power that they should not take the vaccine, don’t be a sheep, and follow the crowd they are told. They have been duped into believing that they are making a choice not to be vaccinated when in reality it is those in power who have chosen for them and like sheep they follow along.
Choice is an illusion created between those with power and those without.
