There is a saying in government: If all you have is a hammer, everything you see is a nail.
And if you’re a Woke leftist, everything you don’t like or understand must be ‘racist.’
Such was the case with an alleged “sports” publication called Deadspin, which continued its deadspin into sports culture oblivion with an ill-conceived and frankly ignorant post on Monday, which targeted a child for having fun at a football game.
During CBS’ broadcast of a Kansas City Chiefs game, the camera caught a glimpse of a young fan wearing a Native American headdress.
It only showed the right half of his face, which was painted black.
Instead of doing more research, Woke sports media sites accused the kids of wearing “Black face,” a demeaning form of mockery of African Americans popular in the 1930s, and have since failed to retract their accusations despite the abundance of known facts flying in the face of their half-baked narrative.
One of those sites was the Woke sports commentary publication Deadspin.
The NFL needs to speak out against the Kansas City Chiefs fan in Black face, Native headdress https://t.co/9eGBsA8nca

The main problem is that the left side of the child’s face was painted red, plainly repping Chiefs colors, while the other half was painted black.
Any thinking person knows that this would not be “Black face”; in addition, wearing a Native American headdress has nothing to do with “Black face.”
It flat-out makes no sense.
Holy sh*t the writer doubled down. pic.twitter.com/jVsobqxjFu

“Deadspin published a hit piece on a little kid for wearing face paint of his team colors,” the popular X account End Wokeness remarked.
“They even used a camera angle to make it look like he was wearing blackface. I hope he sues them into oblivion.”
It would be bad enough just to write an attack piece on a child while pushing an ignorant political agenda, but the writer of the piece, Carron J. Phillips, even doubled down.
LoLo, a user on X, clearly showed the child wearing his game face.
That writer is a POS. Honestly hope to see more Chiefs fans come dressed like this to the next game. pic.twitter.com/xhdNp4iXAl

“How soon they forget,” Syzmon Thomas said, while referring to Nicholas Sandmann, who prevailed in his defamation lawsuits against the corporate media. “I hope the parents sue.”
