The Game and Dak Prescott

Rapper The Game lashed out at Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott for saying NFL players who kneel during the National Anthem were disrespectful.

"I never protest during the anthem. I don't think that's the time or the venue to do so," Prescott told reporters when asked about the protest controversy last month.

"The game of football has always brought me such a peace," he added. "Anytime you bring such a controversy to the stadium, to the field, to the game, it takes away. It takes away from that. It takes away from the joy and the love that football brings a lot of people."

Prescott suggested that kneeling to "raise awareness" about social injustice was pointless because society is already aware that injustice exists. He called on protesters to take the "next step" that leads to action.

"I think we've proved and we know about the social injustice. I'm up for taking the next step, whatever that step may be for action."

Social media users unleashed a tidal wave of criticism at Prescott, who later said his comments were taken out of context.

West Coast rapper The Game joined in the criticism, calling Prescott a "coon" and conflating the quarterback with a Trump supporter.

“COONgratulations @dak Might as well throw on that MAGA hat,” the rapper tweeted on his "Black Jesus" account.

Comedian D.L. Hugeley also insulted the Cowboys quarterback by calling him “boy”.

And Oakland Raiders linebacker Tahir Whitehead accused Prescott of brown nosing to keep his endorsements.

"Sounds like Dak don’t wanna lose that Campbells Chunky Soup deal!" Whitehead tweeted on Saturday.

Prescott said he was "oblivious" to the left-wing attacks on social media. "I said what I said," he told the the Star-Telegram.

“You get on social media, you see it. It doesn’t bother me. I said what I said. You have an opinion. Everyone else has an opinion,” he said. “They are entitled to it as well. I accepted what they said and respect it. They should respect mine."

    He wasn't the only one.

    “I accepted what they said and respect it. They should respect mine.”

    This is the basic principle of life. He doesn’t deserve this backlash. Ppl don’t know how to respectfully disagree.

  • Nina Ross

    Well it’s true

  • dru and neil

    People respect those who kneel, and he is choosing not to do so, the respect should go both ways. You don’t have to agree, but why try to shame the man. And do DL Hughley or The Game have moral standing to come for anybody’s character?

  • shelly

    I would bet this guy is married to a white woman or a non Black woman.

  • dontgetblocked

    Good for him.

  • Dun Dilly

    "Gangsta" rappers should NEVER talk.

  • hi-liter

    I feel like as long as “Some” players protest and “Some” don’t, it won’t mean anything. When Colin Kap first started protesting, EVERY black player should have kneeled with him. Shid, they gone fire 90% of the NFL? Now, it prolly would be a mute point to do any protesting because they let the momentum pass. They ALL shoulda did it with Kap, strength in numbers is better.

  • Miss Thang

    Game needs to leave the country if he's against freedom of speech.

  • Miss Thang

    they didn't all have to do anything. Only people that believe in that form of protest should do it.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Nope, sure don't. When you don't agree with someone, they resort to calling people names.

  • Miss Thang

    I only respect those who do it because they truly believe in the message, not because of peer pressure or publicity.

  • Miss Thang

    "Ppl don’t know how to respectfully disagree."

    Exactly.

  • Miss Thang

    This man literally said, "“I said what I said." lol, well stand in your truth then, sir. I love it.

  • stav

    He is a Coon "“The game of football has always brought me such a peace,” he added. “Anytime you bring such a controversy to the stadium, to the field, to the game, it takes away. It takes away from that. It takes away from the joy and the love that football brings a lot of people.”
    This is a brute and violent game and therefore controversial to many(ask any parent, family member, spouse etc. whose loved one has been injured , killed, or developed severe medical conditions because of playing the sport), since when and where is there peace in football? This fool believes cause his complexion is a bit lighter, and he's never experienced what others may have it doesn't apply to him, he's nothing more than a token. He's in for a rude awakening! He shouldn't down those that protest just because it isn't for him.

  • Mo Mobetta

    There protest isn’t doing anything.. I want too see your works.. President Trump gave them a mission he literally asked them to provide list to his White House of people they’ve felt were wrongly convicted so they can look at the cases and help Pardon them. And I have yet too hear of anybody from the NFL giving him a list yet.. now that shows me they don’t mean it. Now that’s what you call, calling someone’s bluff. if it’s about what you say it’s about than why won’t you work with me too fix it.. at that point your just stirring up shyt

  • hi-liter

    All I’m saying is if they gone Protest, it needs to be way more than a couple of players.

  • Miss Thang

    as long as George Zimmerman walking around here free as a bird and alive as can be, I don't wanna hear from NO "GANGSTAS".

  • hi-liter

    Dump was talking bullshit when he said that. You really think he would do that? You know how long that list would be?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Man fugg the NFL .... and I ain't watching ... bye ... don't give a damn about this either

  • Itzgoingdown

    Blacks have achieved no significant gains from marching and protesting in the last FIFTY YEARS after King and the Civil Rights Movement. It's now all about imagery and symbolism and then sending blacks back to the slums. These young men careers are only about 3 to 5 years. To throw it all away for a stupid "Cause of the Day" is a travesty.

    Everyone demanding that these players protest should be required to protest in front of their job every Monday. Let's see how that works out for you. This is America and you have the right to protest but not at your place of employment.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Sorry. I agree with Dak. Everyone doesnt feel the same. Strong as YOU may feel about the whole anthem issue, you cant make everyone feel the same as you do. People are entitled to THEIR opinion. Jesus I dont understand why in the fukk folks dont GET THAT. Not everyone gonna see it like you and all the name calling and put downs bc they DONT is not needed. Shit. Sicka folks.

  • FukkFolks2018

    "I said what I said. You have an opinion. Everyone else has an opinion,” he said. “They are entitled to it as well. I accepted what they said and respect it. They should respect mine.”

    Continue to do whatever it is you feel Dak. Blessings to you either way bro.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Hell no! Neither one should say a thang .. They both ain't shyt either .... I don't buy DL lame acts nowadays ... Knew he was a simp back in the day when he was comedian .... DL needs money a group to dyck ride because no one is fugging with low life azz. .. Game needs to stfu (molester) DL is scum. Guilt eats him alive daily .. thee end ...

  • MissHarlem

    When people are lost in the sauce it's a waste of breath to convince them otherwise. Let Dak suck on that white man's dick if he wants to. We don't need everyone some we need to let them be as they only slow us down ? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/45d2c1541fcefd1ac75f71abd8ac023914bc63dfb4d9396777d11695bacc38ca.gif

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion and they have the right to decide whether they want to protest. That being said, it is time for black Americans to take note of those that are with us and those that are not. White, black and otherwise. There is no gray as far as I am concerned. No straddling the fence. Pick a side... and deal with the consequences. Failure to take a stand is tantamount to complicity in my opinion.

  • TheOwley

    Don't worry, it will eventually come to civil war, because if you think differently, you will be targeted and at some point there will be armed conflicts. It's no longer protests, it's about taking the government down. Why? Because everyone wants free everything. It's come to that.

    Game is ignorant

    One of these black men is gainfully employed, makes a contribution to society, is educated, and is now receiving death threats. One is not.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Blah Dak doing what a lot of NFL players are doing, playing on the white mans balls and trying to be in good standing.

  • Mark mcharm

    You know what Game is doing for society and they both are gainfully employed and I'm no game fan ,dak kind of brown nosed he should not have stood with jerry jones.

  • Mark mcharm

    Damn, do you all think things through before you say dumb things? this is not about a handout. this was going away until Trump opened his f.....cking geriatric mouth. Then it blew up.

  • Renee26

    He said he's ready to take action...someone should suggest an action plan for him to get involved with

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    He made that statement because he does not have any emotional connection to the "Black Community." He is disconnected.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    No, we want, racist troll, to not have UNARMED BLACK PEOPLE MURDERED by cops with zero consequences. Racist.

  • Renee26

    ?

  • Carrington

    You don't get to ride the bench (or fence) when it comes to racism. Either you're with us, or against us. FOH

  • TheOwley

    Or maybe it has nothing to do with Jones and is simply expressing his personal convictions and having his life threatened for it. That Game is part of that hate makes him sh*t in my book. To think there are thousands of people of color serving proudly and this a-hole shits on them.

  • ALLMINE?

    Game is doing what the liberals want us to do.

  • EMILY POST

    Omg how ignorant are some of you... the nfl protest is meaningless and is costing people their jobs for nothing... over nothing, solving nothing.
    I support their right to protest and also support a persons right not to protest...
    The game needs to stfu claiming a gang who murders other black men... and he has a face tattoo of a butterfly on his face. Then is trying to be political. It’s retards like game that the police use as a justification to harm the innocent... stop talking after clowns ? .
    Do these clowns in entertainment even own their own art? How many of them own their masters? Before they talk about the nfl maybe they should check how the recording industry is treating black artist... such Clowns stop supporting liberal clown speeches.

  • TheOwley

    I am angry about these shootings and cops not being held accountable. But don't worry, one day you will get a chance to go out and shoot everyone.

  • Bri

    So what are the next steps he’s taking since it’s “whatever that might be?” Bet $100 couldn’t even tell you! Smh.

  • TheOwley

    Dak has the right to voice his opinion. That he's being threatened for it gains my full support regardless of what Game says or does. Bottomline.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Racist. That is not anywhere near what I wrote. You are afraid that what you have sown & protected will come back to haunt you.

  • Kay Gee

    His mother was white, so he has options either way...

    BUT - I don't care if he kneels or not, he should have just kept his mouth shut, that would have served EVERYONE better.

    Dack said he is not messing up his coins basically. He'll change his mind if he ever gets caught driving while black ?

  • sunni_daze

    PLease yell this from the mountain top

  • TheOwley

    Just because one supports an idea does not mean other relevant facts are not important. I'm fully aware we have issues, specifically with those shootings.

    But Racist, homophobe, misogynist, islamophobe, misanthrope (hater off all humans) can you think of any other. DO you honestly you think I give a F*ck. You don't know me. You can't quell my opinions by name calling so knock your self out.

  • Waya Hedia

    someone's got a little gutter breath this morning.

  • Waya Hedia

    how many so called 'unarmed' black people are shot by cops? If you can actually find the answer, now go find the number of unarmed black people shot by black people. Then you might understand why you're largely ignored.

  • Itzgoingdown

    Take a stand? You can't be serious. .... So much naivety. smh Politics is nothing but a minor family squabble between whites. They are all from the same tribe. White liberals are not coming to save blacks and will never put blacks and ghetto black kids ahead of white conservatives and white kids because those big bad white conservatives are white liberals mama's, daddys, friends, coworkers and neighbors, facts.

    No one benefits more from systemic racism than the white liberal. They make no sacrifices economically, academically nor socially. They get hired first, live in the best 2 parent neighborhoods with good jobs and send their kids to the best schools. If they're the employer, they will hire a white liberal, WHITE CONSERVATIVE, Asian, South Asian, Mexican and African before they will hire a Black American, facts.

  • Waya Hedia

    Way to stay positive!

  • Mark mcharm

    You totally miss the point this is not about the arm services and the servicemen know this like the Tuskegee airmen know and knew it was not about them. As far as dak yeah he should not have stood with jones who we know is of no moral character whatsoever and allows women beaters and drug users to stay on his team.

  • Itzgoingdown

    Stay positive about what? Blacks are at the bottom of every race (because of liberalism) and you all want become even more liberal? It's absurb.

  • Itzgoingdown

    This country is not fractured. Not even close. After an election white liberals and conservative go back to living, working and socializing together, facts. They are all family members, friends, coworkers and neighbors. Get a clue they are all from the same Tribe.

  • Ryan

    On a related note, looks like it's blocking season.

  • Waya Hedia

    True, liberals have many blacks wrapped around their little fingers. But don't be so negative. Blacks are still capable of being individuals and determining their own fate. There is no rule that you have to fall just because others of the same race fall around you.

  • Kayke

    Its not about belief, it is about solidarity, something black folks lack. Everyone can agree injustice for us is absolute, but then argue on HOW to protest it? As if that’s the actual problem. We’re easily distracted and those prospering seem to forget their skin color as if money changed that aspect. Black folks do not get swift restitution because we fail to unite even on issues we agree on. It’s always been the case and for that reason things never change for us. We still asking about our forty acres and a mule. All that “freedom of speech” and “right to opinion” doesn’t trump the right to not be shot dead due to our complection. The NFL ain’t ish without their black players, America ain’t ish without our culture and input .... as important as I know we are, it saddens mean that folks don’t stand together and threaten the loss of what we provide, which is a lot. We need more love and belief in ourselves.

  • Mark mcharm

    She said nothing about politics this is the problem right there you all are zombies to media bites,and not proactive MLK and Malcolm were not politicians.she is right dak wants to stand for a his low moral white boss black people will not buy Campbell soup and greek yogurt when you "Montgomery "corporations they find a way to listen because the money is not flowing.

  • Mark mcharm

    We all have a right I have a right to say show me when he got threatened? Dak Prescott is like most millennials Malia Obama included they are spineless idiots indoctrinated in whiteness. Read Jackie Robinsons I never had it made or look at footage when Hank Aaron was breaking a white man's record then talk to me about some bs flag. Until then f that flag we know what this is about.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Dak trying to keep his coins, that is all...with his sucka ass

  • Itzgoingdown

    When two powerful opposing forces are oppressing you. Your only option is to (leverage) play both ends against the middle. Liberalism, marching and protesting is useless. G0ggle what Malcom X says about white liberals.

  • Simone

    Have you ever been truly passionate about a job or career? When you do what you love, it brings you peace no matter what the profession is. Possible dangers and risks don't matter. Firefighters face risks for example but if you love saving and helping others, it does not matter. Dak has lived and breathed football his entire life. When you do what you love, it brings you peace.

  • shelly

    Why can’t we stand together? These players don’t realize the owners need them not the other way around.

  • Mark mcharm

    "Pick a side... and deal with the consequences. Failure to take a stand is tantamount to complicity in my opinion." Either you are going to be Joe Louis and Prescott or you are going to be Ali and Jackie Robinson that is what she meant. Ali and Robinson were pro black. James Brown was pro black also and repbulican. So I got what she meant.

  • Simone

    He pardoned Alice Johnson, the Black grandmother who was involved in drug trafficking, after Kim Kardashian met with him. If these NFL players met with him and made the case for wrongfully convicted people, his administration would investigate and pardon those who qualify.

  • Itzgoingdown

    The only side blacks should be picking is the never put the "Cause of the Day" ahead of FEEDING YOUR FAMILY side. The more and more liberal blacks become the poorer they're becoming. Protesting and Marching worked in the 60's but hasn't accomplished anything in the last 50 years. It's time for a different approach. Save yourself and your family.

    Forget what white liberals and Obama tell you. Live the way they're living. Get a skilled trade, stem or business degree, embrace heterosexual marriage, Live in stable 2 parent communities, with good jobs. Send your kids to excellent schools and never put your economics or your child's academics ahead of a cause.

  • TheOwley

    I know the writings of many black philosophers who don't define the world by whiteness. I suggest you look them up. They share my values of people in general and acknowledge that we all have similar wants and needs. I never gave any credence to people like Obama, et al. I knew from the beginning he wasn't the real deal but saying so in 2008 would have labeled me some racist or whatever they label you when you pose a different opinion. I feel vindicated. But you can't assume people's opinion are moderated by the color of their skin. Dak like many black folks is a proud American but for a black person to say that can only earn them derision, as if their lives was defined by what other races do. I'm not surprised that Game and many like him think the anthem and flag is for white people only. You go that route and I stop the conversation. Oh yes, you think the flag is BS, so let's agree to disagree.

  • Itzgoingdown

    No, it's not. Don't let these TV Liberals mislead you. White Liberals and White Conservatives live together, work together and socialize together. They're kids are friends and send their kids to the same schools away from poor black baby mama kids.

    If you think it's fractured, threaten one of them and watch how quickly they come together as one force down on your ass, facts.

  • KLove

    I said the same thing Dak said when folks first started kneeling, which was something like "we been had awareness about police brutality and the killing of unarmed blacks by the cops...as have white folks....what exactly is this stopping...what exactly is the end game here?"

    At first, it was Kap kneeling to bring awareness to issues with the police, then others followed along...then, 3 weeks later, if you ask 5 different players why they are kneeling, you would get 5 different answers...from "we kneeling about police brutality" to "the anthem is racist", to some players just plain not being able to articulate why exactly they are kneeling (which says to me they are just sheep and followers).

    I hate that in this day and age, instead of encouraging intelligent debate amongst ourselves, we have to resort to calling folks coons, or Uncle Toms, or step and fetchit, etc, simply for voicing a thought that doesnt align with that of the majority of other blacks.

  • CocoBabe88

    I must say Dak is a breath of fresh air

  • Elevated Soul

    First off Dakota Prescott is biracial but I do realize that Black people overlook "the White part of biracial people,when they are half Black" but I do digress....

    The racist comment by The Game is not a shock at all to me.The only time I'm shocked is when Blacks "think 4 self". The racist names that half Blacks or those of us who have 2 Black parents are called,is the usual ignorance by brainwashed Black Democrats.

    Most Blacks especially those who are Democrat are very racist and are brainwashed to believe it's okay "when they are racist"..... "Coon" is a racist word that many KKK members and before them used against Blacks.

    Everyone has a right to their views without being called racist words by racists.

  • Waya Hedia

    Who encourages independent thought anymore? Why do people have to fall in line with the mob or they are trashed publicly and called out by racists? That's one of the things holding black Americans down. You don't need to think for yourselves, we'll tell you what to think and you HAVE to think like that! That's a tool Democrats have used for a long time. Then, every once in a while, someone makes it through that bull and has a thought of their own and they're called coons or worse. Tribal if you ask me.

    One thing we gotta realize is that Black Folks are not a monolithic group. Plenty of Black Folks, just like this guy, stay caping for 'the other side.' All he wants to do is play ball and not make waves. He doesn't appear to have any interest in 'taking the next step which leads to action' as he puts it. I say don't buy his jersey or whatever other football paraphernalia he has if you don't agree with him. Money talks. Besides, who eats Campbell's soup anyway?

    The hell you expect from a "brotha" named Dakota? Dak doesn't have any stake in the issue so of course, as the QB of America's Team, he would give the company line. Sorry, but I can't get upset about people who do exactly as I'd expect them to do. If you thought Dak Prescott was down in the fight against police brutality and social injustice, now you now he's not. Keep it movin' and don't waste energy pretending to be pissed over it like lame ass Game is. How big of a joke is Game and other "brothas" like him? He's probably danced 500 times the number of jigs as Dak and he has the nerve to throw "coon" at him? Kneegrow please.

  • Mark mcharm

    Black on Black crime is a racist term within itself , call out ALL men if they are being f ups matter fact call out all people who are f ups like the people bothering children swimming and mowing lawns.! Whites are animals by nature so I wonder why you have no beef with those people.

    He is a coon. Of course he's against it. He can anger you know who or his girlfriend wont give him any.

    The game has graffiti on his face. He lost his right to voice his opinion, a long time ago.

    But Dak ( or Zeke) really didn't need to say anything because none of the Cowboys knelt last season.

    It really was a power play by Jerry Jones because he doesn't get to make the rules for his own team...the entire NFL and players' union make the rules

    Please elaborate.

    "I go to my white grandparents' house, and then I cross the railroad tracks and hang out with my black grandma. We have English teachers on my white side. My grandpa is a principal. And then you go to the other side and people have been in jail.“

    Sounds like he’s embracing both sides of the family while seriously shading the black side.

    This may be true for his family, however, given that he is a black man one would think he’d be sensitive to THIS stereotype.

    Dear Black People, it's ok when one of the crabs has an opinion that differs from yours. It really is. A coon because he has a different opinion or approach?

    We didn't all grow up the same so many of the crabs will not relate to what the mass of crabs feel you should be upset or angry about in life.

  • Joy King

    "however, given that he is a black man," thank you for stating that. I didn't know the man was biracial by looking at his picture but found out by reading the comments. But WHO CARES, he is still a black man and will be viewed as such by society. I don't understand when it came a 'thing', to name everything you're mixed with instead of embracing the fact you're black. If you're not proud to be black, then I don't want you claiming it anyway. You can call yourself 'other' for all I care. But don't try to dismiss what black men and women do to bring awareness to social injustice. I do believe NFL players should have the right to protest by kneeling peacefully but I respect Dak for saying what he said and not backing down once the social media pressure hit.

    Game you're in a gang so you're the biggest coon of them all

  • chris

    Gangs are hurting more black people than anything else right now. He use the n word liberally too so what makes you think he care about racism.

  • chris

    Maybe his white side is more successful ????

    Look at Megan Markle her white side is the crazy size so it could go either way

  • morenYAHdelsur

    True

  • the guest

    Agreed.

    To ban the NFL protests is unconstitutional, still, black and white players have a right to CHOOSE or CHOOSE NOT to protest. Because they choice is freedom and liberty.

  • the guest

    Amen.

  • jason rite

    agree

    If you knew anyone with Neanderthal blood is against blks,you wouldn't feel that way. Their own scientists said they're DNA is different from ours.
    We're THE MOST HIGH PURE creation.GOD didn't create any human being that gets skin cancer from the sun. Blks don't get skin cancer from the sun!!!

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I was so insulted when this guy with face tattoos tried to talk to me the other day. As if he really had a chance. I like tattoos but it's something about face and neck tattoos that hollar "Crazy As Héll".

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Racist troll. Focus on your red neck community. Ya stay being the biggest serial killers, the biggest teens going to hs and killing their school mates. You do not have a leg to stand on.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    You don't know me. You put down Blacks, while ignoring patterns and facts, I will address it.
    Go look in the mirror and cuss at yourself.

  • TheOwley

    You must be a glutton for punishment. Go re-read my last comment, second paragraph with big emphasis on the cap word.

  • Waya Hedia

    Hop to it honey! Shout racism whenever you can't deal with the truth. Ain't white.

    Don't have a 'redneck community'.

    Whenever anyone starting bringing up that crap and ignoring the thousands murdered in urban streets in favor of the small minority of brutal senseless mass murders I always know they're at the end of their ability to deal with the truth.

    Unlike you I don't live my life attached to the mentality of other people of my race. That is complete stupidity. I don't make excuses for anyone, ever. No matter what their ethnicity is. I am an individual.

  • Waya Hedia

    To some people, everyone that confronts them with fact is a racist. Those people are begging to be ignored. As well, they are all helping diminish the meaning of the word.

  • TheOwley

    ?!!! Jesus help.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Yes, you are. White & a racist.

  • Waya Hedia

    I hope you are able to finally reach the nirvana you are seeking by calling everyone a racist. As a racist, that is. Good luck with that!

  • the watcher

    what the hell does dak being biracial have to do with him being a coon ? there are a lot of elevated coons still trying to speak for all blacks. (wink wink). also elevated coon, colin kaepernick is also biracial too SO YOUR POINTT IS WHAT?????

  • the watcher

    WELL UNCLE TOM YOU KNOW I'S VERY HAPPY YOU DEFEND MASSA THE WAY YOU DO. WHAT'S WRONG MASSA WE SICK THIS MORNING???

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    He's professional NFL player. You don't see those often. He showed that he understands that some things are inappropriate in certain places or times. Even saying "We've proved we're aware, now its time for the next step."
    This has gone from a protest of social and racial Police injustice to protesting the right to protest. That means it's no longer effective.

  • KLove

    and Im an Uncle Tom because?..........I said it was OK that he expressed his opinion on the matter, and stated that he shouldnt have to face backlash because his opinions dont match that of the majority of black folks...come on fam i know youre smarter than that
