    It’s about time that someone with dignity and sense spoke out about the black players on the Miami Dolphins team. WTF with their giving license to an ignoramus of a white man over Jonathan Martin? A white man who sexually harassed a black female employee at a country club; more accurately, he threatened her with rape by using a golf club as a proxy for his penis. Do these men have sons? Save women from them.
