Rush Limbaugh Wants to Purchase NFL Team

Rush Limbaugh

I have been hearing a lot about whether or not Mr. Limbaugh should be allowed to purchase a NFL Team.. I am not sure what all the fuss is about. Mr. Limbaugh seems to be an entertainer who taken way too seriously. I am a firm believer in treating others as you want to be treated. Sometimes I think we judge each other too harshly without any hard facts. I am not saying that anyone should be allowed to be a part of an NFL franchise. However, I do think people should be judged by their actions more so than their words.

Rush Limbaugh may have said some things in the past which would lead someone to believe he was a racist, I have not really heard anything that would make me think this would have any bearing on his ability to be fair as an employer as especially when the people you employ make so much money.

Don't get me wrong, I do not support Mr. Limbaugh. In fact just the opposite is true. I do not like most things that he says on his radio show, but that does not mean he should be punished for this. The things he says are not illegal; therefore, he should be able to participate in the bidding for an NFL team. He is really just an entertainer who wants to be in another part of the entertainment industry, professional football.

The Players in the NFL

Any team that is purchased will have several nonwhite players on the squad.  These men are there to play football not socialize with the owners. No matter what field you are employed in there will always be those that may be prejudiced or racists.  We have no way of knowing what is in a person's heart. If the NFL player on Mr. Limbaugh's team are mistreated because of their race, they will have the same options to file a complaint as we all do against our employers.  I guess I don't understand what all the hoopla is about.  Mr. Limbaugh is just a man who happens to work as a commentator on the radio.  If he were just an everyday guy who had said some stupid things, we would not be wasting so much time even discussing this issue. 

The best reason the Mr. Limbaugh should be allowed to purchase an NFL team is that his money is still green.  In  today's lousy economic times we need all the people spending money that we can get.  Even if Mr. Limbaugh is a racist, he will be contributing to so many nonwhites as an owner of an NFL team that as long as he takes no action based on his belief it is okay with me.  As an African American I can think of no better way to take advantage of someone who is a racist than by letting him help so many nonwhite Americans.
