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.

  4. 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.

    • uhh no.we r not clicking on ur link becuz clearly that too was written by #TheAfricanAmerikkkanKiller.BTW U NEED TO CHANGE THAT AVI TO A NICE PIC OF #CHICKENGEORGE OR EVEN #UNKLERUCKUS,,YOU SELFHATING DOO DOO STAIN.

    • Maybe if you take time to read the article your dumb black ass might learn how many brothers in Dallas were ripped off by Deon's business partner…that's of course if your black ass can read! Everyone has a right to be stupid, but you're abusing the privilege. SMH

  7. 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.
    Grobbbbbbbbbbb

  8. I disagree with the writer here…..D Sanders called a spade a spade….it does seem like that reporter is harassing him….i wouldn't entertain or speak on meritless charges either….he can address what he wants HOW he wants when he wants….screw merits when someone is trying 2 sabotage your livelihood…..

  9. Deon has a lot to overcome. Just recently, three of his top athletes were deemed ineligible to play because another African American coach opened an investigation saying Deon recruited these boys for sports and not education. Instead of this brother supporting another Black man trying to uplift young Black athletes, he called the officials. Earlier this summer, it was determined that one of his teams could not play in the division because of some other technicality. In all reality, Deon is trying to find a way to get more young Black men educated and doing so by training them to use their physical talent. Whatever it takes…the haters will hate but they are hurting the children. This is said and it is about race and it is about jealousy.

  10. Often times the race card is the only card in the deck.

  11. Cliff G-Daddy Allen

    Stop dealing racial bias cards, re-shuffle the deck and the cards will not be play. The deck is stack with race. it is what it is, he's playing what' being dealth.

  12. IS THIS WEB SITE SO BLIND THAT THEY DON'T SEE THAT THESE SHARING ICONS ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE SCREEN, GET IN THE WAY OF READING THE INFORMATION?

  13. Race is not a card, it is what has been used to oppress our people for centuries.
