Was Phillip Adams a raging psychopath or a helpless victim? The former NFL star went on a rampage earlier this week, murdering five people in Rock Hill, South Carolina, including prominent member of the community Dr. Robert Lesslie, his wife and two grandchildren, then turned the gun on himself.
While law enforcement initially said the incident was a dispute over medication, the mainstream media is sensitively calling it the result of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), caused by his repeated head traumas in the NFL. It’s important to note that Phillips is a black man and the family he brutally murdered were white, a fact usually glossed over by the media. Meanwhile, social media is following course, expressing sympathy for Phillips and blaming head trauma.
Mr. Obvious has a different take. “Give me a break,” he says. “If this were a white guy who killed a family of five black people or Asians, it would be all over the news: White evil bigot man murdered these minority families!” He added that you would see the media pushing the narrative that white people are a problem and you’d never hear the end of it. Listen to more of the story from Mr. Obvious and his heated analysis.
