It seems that the only rights athletes want what to stay with sports is unless they like the talk that has nothing to do with sports.

A typical example: NBC cut out part of CJ Stroud’s post-game interview where the rookie QB of the Houston Texans talked about his faith.

„First and foremost, I want to give all the honor and all the praise to my Lord Jesus Christ,“ Stroud began.

This part was cut out for a social media clip that instead focused on Stroud’s „love for his city.“

„I mean, it was great,“ said Stroud, who threw for 274 yards and three touchdowns in the 45-14 Wild Card win against Cleveland. „I’ve only been in this city for such a short time, but the love that I feel, I really only did it for Houston, man. People back home. I’m blessed enough to be in the position I’m in, and blessed enough to be playing at a high level now. We just have to keep going, but I am super blessed.“

Bluechecks in the replies quickly pointed out NBC’s editing, and conservative outlets seized the opportunity to create a new point of discussion for the culture war.

As our own Carron Phillips emphasized, the terms „stick to sports“ and „shut up and dribble“ are coded language for when certain people want black and brown athletes to stay silent.

Therefore, the conservative reaction to NFL players kneeling, or LeBron James discussing politics.

However, Christianity is a big part of the right-wing dogma, and Stroud has expressed his faith in interviews as far back as his college days at Ohio State.
