Deion Sanders Calls ‘Caucasian’ Reporter Who Criticized His Prep School an ‘African American Killer’

Deion Sanders tried to maintain a “Put Jesus First” outlook during his divorce from Pilar Sanders, but now, it looks as if the pressure has finally gotten to him.

In an interview with a Dallas-Fort Worth radio station, Sanders responded to allegations that the school he founded, Prime Prep Academy, was illegally recruiting athletes for its athletic programs, with racialized outrage.

Sanders blamed the scrutiny his school is receiving on the white reporter who brought the allegations, calling him an “African American killer.”

Yahoo News reports:

As noted by the Dallas Morning News, Sanders shifted the focus from Prime Prep to an unnamed reporterbelieved to be Brett Shipp, the excellent high school sports reporter for DFW TV network WFAA. You may remember Shipp from earlier this fall, when he was accosted by Prime Prep players and coaches when he attempted to watch practice across from the team’s public practice facility.

Sanders obviously didn’t want to address the accusations being made by Shipp, and preferred instead to change the subject.

“First of all, this all started mainly by a Caucasian reporter from a news station, Channel 8, you know who I’m talking about, and he seems like he’s the African American killer,” Sanders told Dallas radio station KRLD. “It’s always something against a brother. And that bothers me. I’ve never been accused of cheating with anything, in any sports, in any arena, in my life. Now to be accused of something as stupid and as simplistic as this and all I have is 30 kids out there. And the sad thing about it, Channel 8 and Dallas Morning News, they’re partners.”

If Sanders believed that he was being wrongly maligned by the reporter, it should’ve been easy enough to dispute the accusations on the merits. But calling the reporter an ‘African-American Killer’ makes it look like he’s playing the only card he has left – the race card.

    Well Deion is helping kill HBCU Football Programs himself he’s not preping those young brothers for Florida A & M, Cookman, Morehouse, Fort valley State, Albany state or any other Black school he’s getting them ready for Florida State, Miami, Florida and so on-so i say he’s just as guilty.

    Deion, if you were not a crook along with your business partner Wallace, you wouldn’t have to yell racism to avert attention away from your scandalous plan to profit off black kids through a charter school. You were my favtorite athlete of all time..I would have never dreamed you would be this type of man. Just goes to show you cann’t believe the man on the field is the same man off the field. I hope you get what is coming to you soon. For those who wish to buy into Deion’s racism crap, read the below link before you allow yourself to be drawn into his game to avert attention away from his scam.

    It is interesting to actually see people justify his breaking the rules and then crying “raycissss” when he gets caught. How does that help a brother? What reputation will his players ultimately earn from his misdeeds? Think about that next time. His reputation could taint their entire athletic future. A man with integrity would not do this. A man with integrity could not be backed into such a corner.
