On PowerTalk with Lorraine Jacques-White today’s topic was concerning Phil Mushnick his opinions on the devastating issue regarding Adrian Peterson, the death of his 2-year old son and black fathers and baby mama drama. If you don’t know New York Post “sports media columnist” Phil Mushnick, good for you. He is basically a paid troll who points out harmless mistakes in sports broadcasts and occasionally harps on one and sermonizes angrily on a non-issue. He also gets money to say things like “the Brooklyn Nets should be called the New York N—-s” and complain about Dunk City’s fun-having. What I assume happens is that he thinks of the most racist response to a hot topic in the sports world, writes it down, and then editors tone it down as much as possible, yet the ensuing product still remains awful with plentiful racial undertones.
But Mushnick’s latest column may have been his worst: He wrote a column on Adrian Peterson right after his son died. Not only were did his complaints not warrant a column during happy times, but he wrote this immediately after the tragedy.
The 2-year-old son of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson dies in a South Dakota hospital, and a man who police say was caring for the child has been arrested.
“I should start off by saying I really appreciate all the support that I’ve been receiving from fans, the Vikings organization,” Peterson said Friday afternoon. “This is a private matter and I would ask you all to please just respect my privacy and not ask at all about the situation at hand. Thanks.”
Peterson’s father, Nelson Peterson had told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that the child is Adrian Peterson’s son.
“All I can say is, we are asking for prayers and for respect for our family as we deal with this tragic situation,” Nelson Peterson said.
Joseph Patterson, 27, is being held on two felony counts of aggravated battery of an infant and aggravated assault domestic. He was in court Friday for a probable cause hearing where bail was expected to be discussed.
Peterson, who spoke to reporters Friday at the team’s facility, said he will play Sunday. The Vikings (1-3) host the Carolina Panthers (1-3). Coach Leslie Frazier said he and Peterson will “talk more over the next 24 hours.”
“I really appreciate all the support from fans and the Vikings,” Peterson said. “I ask y’all to respect my privacy.”
With every big game — 2,037 running yards worth — the media bloated his profile: There runs Superman, a super guy, too Adrian Peterson still finds time to do charity work in the Twin Cities area.” Good equals goodness.
In 2009, he was busted for driving 109 mph in a 55 mph zone. He dismissed that as no big deal, which was doubly disturbing — his older, full brother was killed by a reckless driver.
In this case New York Post “sports media columnist” Phil Mushnick decided to comment on this devasting issue.
Of course, we all have to operate from are our own set of values, our personal sense of right from wrong. Perhaps, given current standards among NFL players — mostly college men, no less — Peterson qualifies as a man of good character.
Still, I’m stuck with what I’ve got. And it’s sickening the NFL’s latest MVP, hours after his son died — allegedly murdered — declared he was “ready to roll,” ready to play football.
Me? I’d be fighting for breath, my knees weak with grief, demanding to know why, who, how. Then, I suspect, I’d seethe with rage, swearing retribution. I even think I’d take off a day or two from work. Maybe a week.
The suspect in the beating murder of Peterson’s 2-year-old is the boyfriend of Peterson’s “baby mama” — now the casual, flippant, detestable and common buzz-phrase for absentee, wham-bam fatherhood.
The accused, Joseph Patterson, previously was hit with domestic assault and abuse charges.
With his resources, how could Peterson, the NFL’s MVP, have allowed his son to remain in such an environment? Did he not know, or not care? Or not care to know? Or not know to care?
Peterson couldn’t have provided his son a better life, a longer life?
Money can’t buy love, but having signed a $96 million deal, he could not have provided his child — apparently his second from a “baby mama” — a safe home?
But given Peterson’s father did hard time for drug money laundering maybe we’re both stuck with the values in which we were born, raised.
On Friday, Peterson said he was “focused” on football. On Sunday, he played. But it’s not as if murder doesn’t now regularly afflict the NFL.
Maybe Peterson’s son is just one more stands-to-reason murder victim, just another child born to just another “baby mama,” one more kid who never had a shot, anyway. Maybe, by now, even if we can’t accept it, we can expect it. Stated Phil Mushnick
In addition does columnist Phil Mushnick have a point on his scandal with baby mama drama, Adrian Peterson fathered a 4th child his 2nd secret child and the mother was a waitress at a popular Minnesota nightclub, TMZ has learned.
We’ve confirmed … the child is a 3-month-old little girl who’s living with her mom in Minnesota.
Sources close to the situation tell us the child’s last name on her birth certificate is listed as “Peterson.”
On the day Peterson’s 2-year-old son Ty passed away, the mother of AP’s 4th child posted an emotional message on her Facebook page about the situation.
“Today has been a long day finding out my [daughter’s] brother passed away and knowing that she never even got to meet him.”
Sources connected to the situation tell us the mother of AP’s 4th child first met the NFL star while serving him as a VIP waitress at a place called Seven a steakhouse, sushi joint and ultralounge all wrapped in one.
It’s unclear how involved Adrian has been in the child’s life but the mother recently posted a photo showing the child decked out in Minnesota Vikings gear, so we’re guessing they’re cool.
Our PowerTalk audience felt his tone language was despectful, ignorant and down right rude this young athletic black man, regardless of his pass is still griving if he uses football as a tool to help his pain then it is ok.
