All of the anti-Trump virtue signaling athletes were silent after Donald Trump pardoned former boxer Jack Johnson.
Here is a write up on who Jack Johnson was:
Johnson, the sportâ€™s first black heavyweight champ, was convicted in 1913 by an all-white jury of violating the Mann Act, which made it illegal to transport a woman across state lines for â€œimmoralâ€ purposes. Johnson fled the country after his conviction, but he agreed years later to return and serve a 10-month jail sentence.Â
It’s odd we have heard any praise from any of the athletes who claim to support African American rights. Jack Johnson’s case is actually an example of racism having to do with our judicialÂ system, not the nonsense they whine about.
