Deion Sanders Calls Out White Reporter for Racism

Sanders called the reporter a racist.

In a recent radio interview with KRLD-FM 105.3, NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders responded to allegations from an unnamed white reporter that his state-funded charter school, Prime Prep Academy, illegally recruited football and basketball players. He emphasized that he has nothing to gain from the athletic success of his school.

“First of all,” Sanders said, “This was all started mainly by a Caucasian reporter from a news station, Channel 8, you know who I’m talking about, and he seems like he’s the African-American killer…It’s always something against a brother. And that bothers me. I’ve never been accused of cheating with anything, in any sports, in any arena, in my life…Now to be accused of something as stupid and as simplistic as this and all I have is 30 kids out there.”

Sanders’ school is in Ft. Worth and Oak Cliff Texas.

Sanders said he thinks he’s being targeted because he “provokes change” and is giving kids in low-income areas a chance to stay in school.

“I’m trying to get kids to college,” he added. “The majority of my kids don’t even play sports.”

  • Neon Deion certainly does “provoke change”. I stopped liking him after I found out that was just another sorry racist. I watched the report from the guy he is calling names and it had nothing to do with race. There was a story and the guy was telling it. It is the school district that isn’t letting the team play, not the reporter. Does Sanders really expect the news channels not to report on the story because it irks him? What a douche he turned out to be. Had us all fooled for so long.
