Seahawks Locker Room Issues: Russell Wilson Not ‘Black Enough’ for Some Players

Russell Wilson Not  Black Enough

*If you’ve been following the current Super Bowl champs, the Seattle Seahawks, you know they recently traded receiver Percy Harvin to the NY Jets.

OK, that in itself is not exactly a big deal. Trades happen every day. But if you look deeper at the trade, more information about the dynamics of the team’s locker room are being reported.

In a story from Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman, it is suggested that there was a divide in the locker room among Seahawks supporting quarterback Russell Wilson, and players who supported Harvin. Freeman even suggests that some players believe the QB is not black enough.

Freeman says the Seahawks traded Harvin because of “increasing animosity” between the former Vikings wide receiver and their Super Bowl-winning quarterback. This should not come as a surprise; Lance Zierlein of Sports Talk 790 in Houston reported last week that Harvin nearly fought Wilson this season. He also says some players feel Wilson is too close to the front office, which is probably another way of saying that Wilson is a favorite of the organization. Freeman also reports that some teammates are irked by Wilson not always taking blame for mistakes he makes.

The real explosive aspect here is what Freeman says about the racial issue:

There is also an element of race that needs to be discussed. My feeling on this—and it’s backed up by several interviews with Seahawks players—is that some of the black players think Wilson isn’t black enough.

It’s unclear whether the not “black enough” part is a thought held by Freeman and shared with players who either agreed or disagreed with his hypothesis, whether Freeman saying that is just him deducing based on what has been told to him, or whether some players have outright said it to him.

Wow. Interesting. Read the full story at MSN Sports.

Grammy Award winning producer and Stellar Award winning gospel artist J Moss

*PMG Records, Grammy Award winning producer and Stellar Award winning Gospel artist J Moss speaks on the recent loss of his family home due to fire.

It’s hard to take losing everything that you own in a matter of minutes,” said J Moss.

Last Tuesday evening (10-14-14) at approximately 4:30 PM, a fire started in the basement of the Moss family suburban West Bloomfield (Michigan) home and quickly spread to each floor. Currently, the cause of the fire is believed to be due to electrical issues.

Fortunately, J Moss’ wife and two sons had not arrived home from school at the time. The following day after walking through the home and seeing the devastation, J Moss was just thankful that he and his family were able to escape the fire without injury.

“Many people assumed that it was just maybe a kitchen fire (and) in a couple of rooms, but now everything is gone. This is when the only thing you have is your faith and you see if you believe what you sing about,” says Moss. Many family, friends, and Moss supporters have been sending their love and prayer to the family. “Everyone has been awesome,” says Moss.

PAJAM, still encourages Moss’ supporters to send their love and support to J Moss via social media by using the handle, @InsideJMoss (Twitter, Instagram, FB) or via email, [email protected].

Video footage from the aftermath of the fire can be viewed below:

Texas Nurse Amber Nurse Amber Vinson Free of Ebola: Family

Amber Vinson Free Of Ebola

*There’s good news for Amber Vinson, the Dallas nurse who had been diagnosed with Ebola.

Wednesday evening, her family announced that Vinson is apparently free of the deadly Ebola virus.

“We are overjoyed to announce that, as of [Tuesday] evening, officials at Emory University Hospital and the Centers for Disease Control are no longer able to detect virus in her body,” read a statement from a family spokesperson.

Meanwhile, Debra Berry, Amber’s mother, is in Dallas under a self-imposed quarantine because she had recently spent time with Vinson. However, Berry spoke with her daughter by phone Wednesday evening, according to the statement.

“Amber and our family are ecstatic to receive this latest report on her condition,” Berry said in the statement. “We all know that further treatment will be necessary as Amber continues to regain strength, but these latest developments have truly answered prayers and bring our family one step closer to reuniting with her at home.”

Jason McDonald, a CDC spokesperson, told Yahoo News late Wednesday that he was not aware of Vinson’s recovery.

“Healthcare provider will determine by diagnostic whether a patient is free of Ebola virus,” McDonald said in an email. “We have criteria we ask medical staff to meet but the determination is made by medical care provider.”

Vinson, one of two Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital nurses to contract Ebola while treating Thomas Eric Duncan, was diagnosed late on Oct. 14. A day later, the 29-year-old was flown by air ambulance to Atlanta for treatment at Emory, which has specialized unit trained in treating Ebola.
