Woke media


It appears that the “woke” media attempted to “cancel” a young boy after CBS’s Sunday NFL coverage.

Refused to tolerate


However, some rational individuals refused to tolerate this behavior and responded to the defamatory left-wing publication.

Ten years old


A young boy, approximately ten years old, who supports the Kansas City Chiefs, was present at the team’s away game in Las Vegas sporting face paint and an American Indian headdress.



This attire sparked outrage among certain individuals on X (formerly Twitter), who labeled it as a “racist costume.”



“Speak out against the Kansas City Chiefs fan in Black face, Native headdress,” read an article by a Deadspin sports writer, Carron J. Phillips. “It takes a lot to disrespect two groups of people at once,” he had written. “But on Sunday afternoon in Las Vegas, a Kansas City Chiefs fan found a way to hate Black people and the Native Americans at the same time.”



The young fan was accused of wearing “blackface” and perpetuating Native American racism. “Blackface” is a derogatory practice where individuals who are not Black apply dark makeup to ridicule Black people.

Comprehensive view


However, the boy’s actions were not as negative as perceived. While Phillips and his group highlighted the black side of his face, a more comprehensive view revealed that he had painted the other half of his face red, which coincides with the colors of the Kansas City Chiefs.



There was no indication that the child’s costume offended the black players on the Chiefs. Even within the Native American community, opinions on the offensiveness of the boy’s appearance vary.



Despite the child’s intentions, it was still inappropriate and disheartening to witness adults openly criticizing a young boy who was clearly much younger than them.

False narrative


It was even more troubling that their outrage was based on a false narrative. Many believed that the media had no ethical grounds to publicly shame a child for innocently wearing something that could potentially offend others.

Surprising development


In a surprising development, the mother of the child has disclosed, and family records have verified, that they are of Native American descent. It is highly unlikely for a parent to dress their child in a way that mocks their own racial or ethnic background.

Native American community


Furthermore, an outfit worn by a Native American individual cannot be considered “offensive” to the Native American community.



Regrettably, Deadspin has not rectified their misleading narrative or offered an apology for it. Instead, they have awkwardly defended their position.

Not her place


A White editor stated that it was not her place to determine if the costume exacerbated racism, as the critic, Phillips, is Black. In response, Phillips foolishly claimed that the child wearing the team’s colors made the situation even more offensive.



Phillips has sacrificed an innocent child in the name of political correctness or sensationalism, which is truly disturbing. While every profession has its share of bad apples, his behavior has reached a new low.



There are concerns that the media landscape will deteriorate further if individuals like Phillips are allowed to continue making mistakes.
