NFL Player Gets in Trouble for Remarks about Bin Laden and Slavery

by Dr. Boyce Watkins, YourBlackWorld.comScholarship in Action 

Rashard Mendenhall of the Pittsburgh Steelers has been taking heat lately for making comments that many believe are in support of Osama Bin Laden.  But rather than being supportive of Bin Laden, Mendenhall is simply stating that Americans are celebrating death just a little too much for his comfort:

"What kind of person celebrates death? It's amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We've only heard one side..." Mendenhall said on his Twitter account.

Adding to the controversy, Mendenhall went further by stating that he’s not exactly sure what happened on September 11.

"We'll never know what really happened. I just have a hard time believing a plane could take a skyscraper down demolition style."
