Justify My Thug

Richard Sherman.  Man.


This whole Richard-Sherman THING is amazing on so very many levels.  You have Sherman himself, who is a fascinating individual.  You have the role that sports plays in our society and its importance on greater racial issues.  You have the reaction of people.  You have the meta-reaction that social media always creates with modern stories.  And, also, you know, somewhere in all of this is a football game.  I could write for HOURS on this but I'm going to make this short.  This post has two points:  1) To bring everyone up to speed on the story and 2) To paint, what I think, is the real picture of Richard Sherman.  But first, we must jump.
