Eagles star wide receiver DeSean Jackson posted what was largely taken as anti-Semitic messages on social media Monday, highlighting a quote from none other than Adolf Hitler.

The Instagram story featured a quote attributed to Hitler that said “[white Jews] will blackmail America and [they] will extort America, but their plan for world domination won’t work if the Negroes know who they were.”
