One would imagine that after the whole Nicholas Sandman incident, the media would have learned, but they didn’t.
Instead, they keep jerking at the knee, responding emotionally to whatever they see not taking the few hours to do a little research.
On November 27, 2023, the online publication Deadspin posted an article written by sports writer Carron J. Philips. The article demanded that the NFL condemn a young boy who attended a Kansas City Chiefs game.
The boy’s name is Holden Armenta and he wore a Chief’s headdress and painted his face in black and red.

His mother, Shannon Armenta confirmed that her son was the one at the middle of the controversy on her Facebook page.

Here’s what Philips wrote about the young boy:
It takes a lot to disrespect two groups of people at once. 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.…Despite their age, who taught that person that what they were wearing was appropriate?The answers to all of those questions lead back to the NFL. While it isn’t the league’s responsibility to stop racism and hate from being taught in the home, they are a league that has relentlessly participated in prejudice.
I wonder what private jet they’ll buy with the settlement? https://t.co/f39BMdv0Qn
