If there was ever a story that had everything–race, sex, drugs, politics–it was the cautionary tale heating up the Internet today about Miami Dolphins offensive coach Chris Foerster and Blue Springs native turned Las Vegas “model,” Kijuana Nige Sherrod. In the way of local interest, Sherrod also played volleyball for the University of Missouri before spiking Foerster’s career as a form of racial revenge.
Among his many mistakes, Foerster appears to have fallen for a Las Vegas stripper. To show his longing, he apparently sent her a video of himself snorting a white powder–probably not baking soda–telling her how much he keens for her. “Hey babe, miss you, thinking about you,” he says at the beginning of the video.
Caught up in the fake news of the day, Sherrod repaid Foerster’s affection by posting the video to Facebook. When pressed to explain why she ruined the life of this heretofore obscure but very well paid Dolphins coach, Sherrod showed just how deeply and needlessly the media have poisoned race relations in this country.
“The white people mad at me like I forced blow down this mans nose and like I recorded it on tha low,” Sherrod wrote, pleased to show off her MU education on Facebook. “No those are his habits and he recorded himself and sent it to me professing his love. So quick to make excuses for him but will roast a minority player over an anthem, dog fights, weed, domestic issues etc. But y’all keep saying ALL LIVES MATTER STFU??”
Like so many on the idiot left, Sherrod totally misunderstands both the NFL and the media. No one sane is making excuses for Foerster. Nor did his white privilege save his career. The Dolphins forced his resignation within 12 hours of the video being posted. “We were made aware of the video late last night and have no tolerance for this behavior. After speaking with Chris this morning, he accepted full responsibility and we accepted his resignation effective immediately,” said Dolphins head coach Adam Gase.
Sherrod is a 2003 graduate of Blue Springs High. It is unlikely she read Dante in high school. If she had, she would have known that the ninth and deepest circle of Dante’s Inferno is the Circle of Treachery, reserved for “those who betrayed friends or guests.” This is not a black thing or a white thing. It is a universal sentiment, Ms. Sherrod. That is why people are mad at you.
