Jameis Winston should not be allowed to speak to kids
For an all round poor choice by everyone. The Bucs decided it was a good idea to send Jameis Winston to a elementary school to speak to the kids on Wednesday. The poor choice of words was infront of 3rd and 4th graders at Melrose Elementary in St. Petersburg, Florida. Here is what he said.
“All my young boys, stand up. The ladies, sit down,” Winston said. “But all my boys, stand up. We strong, right? We strong! We strong, right? All my boys, tell me one time: I can do anything I put my mind to. Now, a lot of boys aren’t supposed to be soft-spoken. You know what I’m saying? One day y’all are going to have a very deep voice like this [in deep voice]. One day, you’ll have a very, very deep voice.
“But the ladies, they’re supposed to be silent, polite, gentle. My men, my men [are] supposed to be strong. I want y’all to tell me what the third rule of life is: I can do anything I put my mind to.”
I wonder if any social justice warrior is going to have a problem with that. I can see the PR person for the Bucs standing there sweating bullets listening to this. I’m wish there was video of this so you can see the guy jumping over to the Microphone to stop him from speaking.
Since then he has came out saying it was a poor choice of words but what idiot let this happen. Here is Winston’s responds.
“I was making an effort to interact with a young male in the audience who didn’t seem to be paying attention, and I didn’t want to single him out, so I asked all the boys to stand up,” Winston said, according to the newspaper. “During my talk, I used a poor word choice that may have overshadowed that positive message for some.”
