Tom Brady is Popular Because of “White Supremacy”, Says College Professor

College professors are an interesting lot. This college professor from the University of Rhode Island has a particular beef with Tom Brady.

Kyle Kusz, attributes Brady’s popularity due to “the latest wave of white supremacy” in his latest book, “The Palgrave Handbook of Masculinity and Sport”. What triggered this investigation? This commercial:

…and, of course, the Beautyrest commercial that gave the New England Patriots’ quarterback an “imposing” appearance.

I decided to research Trump and Brady’s public performances of their white masculinities and how they connect with broader debates about race and gender politics after a student in one of my classes brought the UnderArmour commercial to my attention and it piqued my interest. In each of these sites, Brady is figured as an unconflicted and unapologetic embodiment of upper-class white exceptionality and manly omnipotence.”-Kyle Kusz

Blahbbity, blah, blah, blah. Sounds like a personal problem to us. An abstract from the chapter of Kusz’s book:

In short, Brady embodies a living fantasy of white male omnipotence that serves symbolically as an imagined solution to white male anxiety for those who feel that the United States is in the midst of a culture war against white men and traditional American culture and values. In each of these ways, cultural (and self-) representations of Brady’s white masculinity showcase the new preferred representational logics used to render white masculinity visible within this latest wave of backlash politics that extends from the Trump White House through popular culture to the online spaces that brought the alt-right life. At stake in this politics is the renewal of white male prerogative as the taken-for-granted governing logic of American civic life.”-Kyle Kusz

Professor Kyle is not bitter about Brady’s Six Super Bowl rings. Those did not contribute to Brady’s popularity at all. And we’re sure Kusz isn’t the least bit bitter that Brady snagged himself a gorgeous supermodel for a wife who attends his games with their kids and it actually seems as if they have a decent marriage. Those things alone don’t make Tom Brady a threat. The things that do fuel”white supremacy”, according to Kusz? Brady golfed with Donald Trump. (GULP. GASP.) He brought a bunch of his white friends to The Kentucky Derby. He only has one black friend on his Facebook account, supposedly. I mean, by those accounts, Brady is one scary, white dude, don’t you think? Brady is totally cool with being the token white guy on the team and hanging out with his upper, middle-class white friends. He’s not apologizing for it. And this is wrong, apparently. It is the equivalent of shouting “white power” from the 50-yard line at a Pats game.

It’s too bad Kyle Kusz is late to this party. Other outlets and publications have attacked Brady, Belichick and The New England Patriots in general for being “too white”. How dare they win Super Bowl Championships! But let’s examine Tom Brady as “an imagined solution to white male anxiety for those who feel that the United States is in the midst of a culture war against white men and traditional American culture and values,” shall we?

Let’s get one thing straight. We ARE in the midst of a culture war against white men and traditional American culture and values. According to Kusz, an “imposing frame” on a white guy is scary. Many images of a white guy sweating on a field and training are “triggering”. The white guy taking a win for his team is also fueling the fire of “white supremacy”. The white guy hanging out with other white guys screams racism. Let’s see what would happen if the white guy tried to act like an African-American guy. Would they cut him some grace? What if Brady took a move out of the fake-diversity playbook of white Democrats? Would they be happy then? All of a sudden, there is something fundamentally wrong with being a fan of the white guy QB, too. Are there nutcases out there that will take this too far? Yes, and they are equally as pathetic as Kusz is. But most heterosexual, American men are simply sick and tired of the BS that these flowy-haired, clammy-palmed, perfecters of the limp-handshake (and maybe other things that are limp…just saying, lots of cannabis will do that to a person), soy-drinking, poor excuses for men with PhDs pepper into their lectures at any given university hall at any given time.

As for Tom Brady and the Pats, ignore Kyle Putz-err-Kusz and do your job this season. Kyle Kusz will continue to do his job and use his God-given, American, First-Amendment (white) privilege to indoctrinate kids whose parents are stupid enough to pay through the nose per credit hour for one of his classes.

    This idiot would find racism with a pickle. But he gets what he wants, notoriety. Trouble is he won’t allow himself to be questioned by anyone with a serious mind to refute his stupidity.

  • Scott says:

    Well, ya beat me to it, calling him Putz… He uses a lot of big words to make himself sound intelligent, but he just comes off as a whiny little bitch, who always wanted to be a man, but could never measure up, so he’ll attack those that do..

    The prof is full of BS.

    Last one picked, and throws like a girl. I know this guy.

  • Mikie-in-Keller says:

    As a general rule, any article suggesting that something happens because of White, Black, Yellow, Orange, Green or any other particular color of the persons involved, is written by a person who is a racist. Read the article, pray for an ounce of truth, but ignore the racism.

    The Eye of the Tiger plays when T.B. enters the room. Watch the NFL again after he retires? Not likely.
    As for people living in an alternate unreality known as academia…they can keep that in the faculty lounge where it belongs.

    First it was the false claim of “white privilege.”

    Today it’s the false claim “white supremacy.”

    Both are defamatory.

    I wrote this in my 2012 National Wave of Foolishness series:

    “19.9 “White Privilege”

    What does God say about relations between neighbors?

    “Thou shalt not avenge thyself, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am Jehovah.” —Leviticus 19:18 (DBY)

    43 “`Ye heard that it was said: Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and shalt hate thine enemy;
    44 but I — I say to you, Love your enemies, bless those cursing you, do good to those hating you, and pray for those accusing you falsely, and persecuting you,
    45 that ye may be sons of your Father in the heavens, because His sun He doth cause to rise on evil and good, and He doth send rain on righteous and unrighteous.
    46 `For, if ye may love those loving you, what reward have ye? do not also the tax-gatherers the same?
    47 and if ye may salute your brethren only, what do ye abundant? do not also the tax-gatherers so?
    48 ye shall therefore be perfect, as your Father who [is] in the heavens is perfect.” —Matthew 5:43-48 (ASV)

    11 For this is the message which ye have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another:
    12 not as Cain was of the wicked one, and slew his brother; and on account of what slew he him? because his works were wicked, and those of his brother righteous.
    13 Do not wonder, brethren, if the world hate you.
    14 *We* know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love [his] brother abides in death.
    15 Every one that hates his brother is a murderer, and ye know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.
    —1 John 3:11-15 (DBY)

    Love your neighbor.

    With that in mind, what is God’s reaction to a hate-filled person who uses the term “white privilege”?

    What should God’s reaction be?

    When Americans hate other Americans, God considers that murder. (Verse 15 above of 1John 3:11-15).

    “Every one that hates his brother is a murderer.” The person who is accusing others of “white privilege” is committing murder by that standard. That person is hating his white neighbor. Why murder? The hate behind the accusation. Hate leads to murder and other crimes.

    If you hate someone, you can do whatever you want to him. Theft, murder, harassment. You can rationalize everything. Hate is the motive behind the accusation of “white privilege.”

    Can those who commit such hate as claiming others have “white privilege,” not be judged by Christ, at the Last Judgement?

    Is it really worth hating others to spend an eternity in hell?

    When you hate your neighbors by stealing from them, committing drug crimes against them, committing assault, murder, racial-based harassment against them and other crimes against your neighbors, you are not acting in love.

    You are not loving your neighbor by that choice to do personal evil against others.

    You are not loving your neighbor by the slandering them with the accusation of “white privilege.”

    Why don’t those recently arrived from the same original countries as those claiming “white privilege” have the the same “problems” as those claiming “white privilege?”

    Christ said “Love your neighbor.”

    If those groups who claim “white privilege” loved their neighbors by their actions, they’d be trusted and loved. Not feared. Not distrusted.

    Do Good to them and do Good for them.

    Love your neighbor. “

    Liberals hate competence. They revel in incompetence.
