Robert Littal from BSO just dropped the hammer on ESPN's Sage Steele [Long great read]
The liar part is because I have said she says black people cause their own racism, problems and are more racist to her than white people.
We will get to that in a minute, but the “Typical” part is interesting. Typical of who? Typical of a black person who calls her out on her statements? “Attack” is also an interesting word, because according to Sage black people “attack” while white people should be “praised”.
But, before we systematically breakdown Sage Steele’s own words, let’s talk about where this story all begins, because I knew a LONG time ago that Sage happily pays mortgage to be in her sunken place.
In 2014, Jameis Winston after winning the National Championship gave an epic postgame speech.
Jameis Winston was excited, he is from the South and has an accent, plus he just won the biggest game of his life. No different from a white man from San Antonio or Boston who also speaks with an accent. The message he gave was awesome, was it perfect standard English, no, but how many young kids in that situation are going to be perfect black or white? I ventured to say none.
The following week, Peyton Manning won a playoff game. Manning did his typical post game interview, the type he could do in his sleep considering how many years he had been in the league at that time. There was absolutely nothing extraordinary or different about this interview, but Sage Steele decided to randomly praise him for it.
Have you ever heard anyone praise someone for being grammatically correct in an interview? My suspicious were confirmed that this was indeed a shot, possibly subliminal, more likely directly at Jameis Winston.
That never sat well with me, because it speaks to a bigger issue that a black person has to act white to be considered well-spoken and intelligent, when the reality is you can speak perfect english and still be an idiot no matter your color. At the time, this was just a blip on the radar, but in retrospect it was a sign of things to come.
For some reason Sage thinks it is personal, it is not. In fact, when there were rumors that the married Steele was inappropriately having a relationship with Jalen Rose I defended her on BSO. No matter what she thinks I don’t lie and attack people regardless of what I think about them. I report on the news, I don’t actively look to carry out vendetta on people.
I had nothing to say about Sage Steele for another 2 years. I didn’t tweet, speak about her, talk to her, write a story about her or think much about her at all.
The ONLY reason I started speaking about Sage Steele is Sage Steele started speaking badly about black people.
Colin Kaepernick and Donald Trump exposed a lot of people.
A lot of people who I thought I knew, I realized I didn’t really know at all and in the case of Sage Steele she just confirmed what I already knew.
A couple of things that you need to know about this tweet.
Mike Evans was upset that Donald Trump had become the President. Why is that important? Sage Steele voted for Trump and is a Trump supporter. Like many Trump supporters she lives in the shadows, because the only way Trump could have won is because a lot of people like Steele who will never publicly admit it voted for him.
The second part of that tweet which I find interesting is she tells Evans to look up the word “Democracy”.
A Democracy has 4 key components:
If you notice there is nothing about having to stand for anthem.
By the definition what Kaepernick, Evans and others were doing was trying to protect democracy. Donald Trump is someone who is stomping all over human rights and surely doesn’t see every citizen as equals.
By using dead soldiers to chastise a black man for wanting to be treated fairly in the democracy we claim to have in US was far more disrespectful to those soldiers than anything Colin Kaepernick or any player who kneeled ever did. Especially when Evans, Kaepernick and others have said they have the utmost respect for the military.
Steele was fairly criticized for her inaccurate tweet, but her reaction to those critiques was a Facebook post that proved without a shadow of a doubt where her head was at.
Here it is in its entirety, unedited.
How she calls black people who simply don’t want other black people speaking down on our race “pathetic”. She says it with disdain like how dare we not see her as special because she is bi-racial. How she feels that minorities shouldn’t get a “hall pass” when they are allegedly are racist.
Let me tell you something considering the history of blacks in this country we deserve a lot more than a hall pass.
How she believes a white person being racist and a black person being racist (you can’t be racist to your own race) is the same thing, which is totally an asinine statement. How somehow we are setting our race back by being proud of our race.
What was so disturbing to me was how many white people especially in media co-signed this post, because either subconsciously or consciously they believe the same. They either believe black people are over exaggerating racism, are the real racists or just wish they just stop talking about it because they don’t want to see the ugliness of our society.
Black people shouldn’t have to anything for you not to be racist towards them. We are equal citizens, there shouldn’t be conditions on how we are treated, that is the thinking of ignorant and frankly racist white people.
I said my peace about her Facebook post and once again went about my business, but Sage decided to tweet more nonsense that needed to be addressed.
Sage has a problem with definitions.
Sage puts herself in the news for saying something inconsiderate and then claim she was the victim.
Notice a pattern here?
Remember at that 2016 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game a Canadian singer Win Butler tried to speak out on America’s health care and you know not wanting Donald Trump to cause people to DIE if he was elected President. How did Sage handle someone who cared about diversity and lives of others?
It is ok to talk about diversity and racism when it is convenient for Sage, but when anyone else wants to talk about politics that don’t mesh with her Trump beliefs, you see what happens.
While speaking on a panel about race (a panel she should never be on) Sage continued to play the victim and focusing on black people being the problem.

A black person saying the worst racism they have ever experience is from black people. A black person saying that we can’t point fingers for three centuries of systematic racism until we look in the mirror about what we are doing wrong. A black person saying we can’t blame or be upset that will are continuously stereotype, put down and looked at as subhuman because they were called a sellout.
This is what Sage Steele is telling you, but I am a liar?
Sage rarely speaks on the NUMEROUS injustices that are done to people of color which we have no control over, but has a lot to say about black people telling her that racism isn’t because of us.
Sage doesn’t speak on black issues, the real issues, she speaks on black people being mean to her because she says a lot of stupid, inconsiderate and downright baffling stuff people disagree with.
This isn’t an attack, this isn’t a lie and the only thing typical from me is every time she says something demeaning to black people I am going to point it out.
Sage used the same tired “hypocritical” stance when discussing Andre Iguodala using the word n*gga.
Sage doesn’t think black people should use the word n*gga if white people can’t. You know who says things like that a lot?
When I wrote about this, it was at the point of being tired of Sage for 3+ years now, constantly, consistently, continuously speaking down about MY RACE, MY PEOPLE.
I am tired of being told black people to praise her white mother, husband and biracial kids for not being racist. That should be normal, not praiseworthy. Being Biracial doesn’t make you special, it just makes you biracial, there is no prize because you are in an interracial relationship, white people don’t get bonus points for that. You husband isn’t any better of a man for marrying you, he is just a guy who married a woman, that’s it.
It is one thing for Sage to say these very hurtful things about black people on social media it is a totally other thing to do it on National Television.
She is promoting Trump’s America, promoting self-hate, promoting that white acceptance is something that should be praised and she is promoting that racism is something that can be easily solved by black people and not the actual racists.
I am not attacking Sage, if anything I am trying to get her to understand how dangerous her message is. She should look at the people agreeing with her. Look at who they are and what they represent. Take a minute to see how much damage you do by talking so badly about your own race. When I see white nationalists and KKK members coming to her defense, what does that say about her message?
When I get emails from fans of Sage Steele they are calling me ******, telling me to go back to Africa and saying I am the racist. These are her fans, I hope she is proud of that.
Sage says 99% of Black People are disagreeing with her, that might be a sign. Not that black people are racist, but black people are fed up with her BS.
I would say I am trying to get Sage out of the Sunken Place, but she decided that is where she wants to live. All I am asking is don’t try to drag us down with you. If you don’t want to be black, then stop telling black people how feel, react, protest, what we can say and who we should praise.
If you want to be white, bi-racial, Trump supporter that is fine, but don’t tell US what we have to do to appease your insecurities, you do not have that right.
I spoke to someone who knows Sage Steele and they asked me to take it easy on her, the reason because she was “teased a lot as a child, had negative interactions with black people, so she is sensitive and doesn’t identified with our side.”
There are so many wonderful black women in media who are breaking down barriers and uplifting their race. It isn’t a shock than NONE of them a.ssociate with Sage Steele. There is a reason NONE of them will come to her defense. Just watch after this is posted and see if anyone speaks up for her who are black in media. There is a reason she isn’t invited to the cookout.
You know my first thought was to get really personal with this post, because frankly if I wanted to burn the house down I could, people tell me things all the time, when Sage called me a liar, it was someone at ESPN who alerted me and had a lot on the their mind about the situation.
I don’t have do that though, cause frankly I feel sorry for Sage Steele. I feel sorry for anyone who hates their race. I feel anyone who needs white acceptance to feel good about themselves.
Unlike some in media who I feel manipulate these topics for ratings, Sage Steele actually believes what she is saying and that is the saddest part.
No race is perfect, but black people are the only race who are told they need to be perfect to stop the racism that is happening to them.
I am proud to be black. I am always going to stand up for black people and I don’t need every black person in the world to like me to do so. I don’t need everyone to agree with me, but my role in this business is to hold people accountable when no one else will or are afraid to do so.
Someone told me a long time ago, there is no need to name call to get your point across because when someone shows you their true colors, they paint the picture for you and if Sage had her choice it would just be a white canvas.
fu*k that bish gawd

Why are people hating on BSO like the internet isn't wide open people take sh*t from Reddit WSHH, BX and everywhere else. If y'all spent less time hating maybe that man could teach you how to get it on your own instead of being a spectator. People appropriate the culture on here!
And fu*k sage Steele.
