NFL star Dez Bryant takes rare moment to talk ‘racism’ in America, and his perspective might surprise you

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant had some advice for his fellow black Americans: stop worrying so much about slavery.

It appears that Bryant has finally had enough of the turmoil in the U.S. over race relations and took to his Facebook page to offer some advice on how to stop all the hate.

“First and foremost I would like to say I do a great job of minding my own business but it’s pressing on my heart to share my thoughts about white Americans and black Americans (racism),” Bryant wrote. “I saw a person quote Charles Barkley when he said, ‘We as black people we’re never going to be successful not because you white people but because of other black people.’ I hate to admit it but I understand that quote.”

In his next post, Bryant went to pains to point out that there is a major difference between the real, actual pre-civil war slavery and “what is going on now.”

“REAL SLAVERY is different from what’s going on in our world now… we all (every ethnicity) have the opportunity to lead by EXAMPLE. Instead of making videos about the history of racism that get applause or people with influence merely doing things to post for social media we should focus on individual accountability to be better as a whole,” the player continued.

Bryant went on to slam the recent black culture that maintains that being smart, educated, and sophisticated isn’t “black enough.”

“Real question [sic] what is wrong with being sophisticated and black? Why do we associate those who choose the straight and narrow as not being ‘black enough.’ Why was it that I was one of the first examples of success to my friend,” he wrote.

Bryant ended by pointing out that people like Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr., struggled to “pave a path” for blacks to follow and that blacks today shouldn’t waste that opportunity.

“The struggles and hurt they endured created new life for us today. It is not our job to carry the burden but it is our job to lead by example,” Bryant concluded.

Wow. Why isn’t that the message being shouted from the rooftops? Well, we all know why…

Naturally, as The Blaze reported, Bryant was attacked by race hustlers and media busybodies who make a living peddling race hate. But we’re grateful he took the time and the courage to tell it like he sees it.
