After the NFL handed down it’s suspensions for the debacle last night at the end of game, many fans, critics, and social media users got into an outrage when they noticed that the person who initiated the entire thing did receive any suspension. While Garrett, Pouncey, and Ogunjobi, who are all black players, got suspended without pay, the only white player involved, Mason Rudolph, didn’t receive suspension at all.
Now fans are claiming racism and white privilege as part of the reason why Rudolph didn’t lose anything. Many users on social media have been digging up certain racial and anti-Kaepernick rhetoric from Mason Rudolph, claiming that his boy next door looks and whiteness makes it easy for the NFL not to suspend him.
