Tell the Oakland Raiders: Don't Hire Racist Brent Musburger!

Brent Musburger is against black athletes speaking up for social justice. He thinks those who do are "juvenile," "ignoble," and "unimaginative." He called those who did protest "black-skinned storm troopers," an offensive term that compared American citizens to Hitler's Nazis.
Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis' father, Al, is described in the team's media guide as "a champion of diversity and equality." Al Davis hired the first African American coach in the NFL, and was the first to draft an African American quarterback. When asked about his thoughts on bringing diversity to the game, Al Davis replied: "I’ve always said, it’s not important to be consistent; it’s important to be right."
So why is Mark Davis hiring Musburger to be the Oakland Raiders' announcer? Tell Mark Davis, the Oakland Raiders, Compass Media Networks, Beasley Media Group, and 95.7 The Game you don't want Brent Musburger calling Oakland Raiders games this year and will boycott the team until they replace him!
As Mark Davis' dad famously said: "I think it was an evolution, an evolution of equity and fairness, and we hope that’s one legacy we leave." Please, take a quick moment to sign my petition and let Mark Davis and the Oakland Raiders know, the legacy he's leaving by hiring Brent Musburger is one his father would be ashamed of!
