Charles Rogers story reveals your racism

Post by lovinlife101 » Mon Nov 11, 2019 12:20 pm

When the news first came out, you were all “No surprise here.”

You alleged it had to be drug-related because it was a young black man.

But it wasn’t, and once again your racism was revealed, you all went silent.

He sucked, plus drug issues. I predicted he would be a bust before he was even drafted, because of his attitude.

Per the Detroit News:
The cause of Rogers' death is unclear. The news spread quickly among Rogers' former teammates.

I know he had liver issues. That usually comes from alcoholism.

However, he also suffered from cancer of some sort.

His life experience is a testament to the substandard state of mental health care in the U.S.

For someone who is usually a truth teller, you are wrong on this one. I HOPED his death was from bad decision making. Charles is a year older than I am, and I hate to see illness claim someone that close in age.

I know. It was asked why he left the Lions. My post was the reason.
