Richard Sherman’s Post Game Interview Leads To Racist Tweets

Richard Sherman is without a doubt one of the league’s emotional, confident and at times cocky players. But one thing is for sure, he’s one of the leagues best defense players and arguably the leagues best corner.

After Richard Sherman made the game clinching play to send the Seahawks to the Super Bowl, Sherman had a post game interview with FOX sideline report Erin Andrews that went viral on social media. Sherman told everyone that he is the best corner in the game and took shots at 49ers WR, Michael Crabtree whom he was covering on that play.

Regardless of what you think about Sherman interview, facts remain that after the game he was emotional and got caught up in the heat of the moment. But that’s no excuse of the racism some people on Twitter spouted at Sherman.

 It’s safe to say that  on a day we honor Martin Luther King, we realize that there’s still a long way to go to eliminate racism in this world.

    The amount of truth in that statement. We are far from eliminating racism. I honestly don’t think it will ever disappear. It will also exist because people like that.

    We can start by convincing the AA race to strike that same word from their own vocabulary FIRST!

    Richard Sherman is the N-word. Do you see how Sherman treats other blacks on the football field? He treats them like their his slaves and he disrespects them. The Rednecks are right in this case, and even those that aren’t white and referring to Sherman as the N-word.

    Not cool. Not cool at all. Need to lighten up. I know, he gets on my nerves sometimes too, though there is no reason to push it like that and that far. Also he was a man enough to apologize what he said and what he said toward Crabtree, and I heard his apology and he sounded sincere.
