Is Florida State Seminal Quarterback De’Andre Johnson another victim of the Raccelerate Phenomenon?

In a recent article, Florida State Seminal quarterback De’Andre Johnson has suffered several possible career setbacks which are associated with the Raccelerate Phenomenon. Many people believe that his reaction is consistent with domestic violence. Many Black men such as Florida State Seminal Quarterback De’Andre Johnson continue to be victimized by the Raccelerate Phenomenon.

According to the article, freshman Florida State Seminal quarterback, De’Andre Johnson was dismissed from the football team after a video surfaced of him striking a 21-year-old White woman in Tallahassee, Florida bar on June 24, 2015. According to his attorney, Johnson was not the initial aggressor in the incident. The 21-year-old White woman allegedly raised her fist and shouted “racial epithets” at him after he accidentally made contact with her while they waited to order at the Tallahassee bar. The woman allegedly assaulted Johnson twice by attempting to knee him in the testicles and then swinging at him with her right hand. Johnson responded by punching the woman in the face which resulted in a Black eye. State’s attorney Willie Meggs decided to charge Johnson after seeing video of the incident.

If the woman assaulted De’Andre Johnson first, then both parties should have been charged. But this was not the result because of the Raccelerate Phenomenon.

How does the Raccelerate Phenomenon impact Black men such as De’Andre Johnson?

The Raccelerate Phenomenon has roots in Newton’s Third Law of Motion. Newton’s Third Law of Motion states that when one body exerts a force on a second body, the second body simultaneously exerts a force equal in magnitude and opposite in direction on the first body. In elementary terms, Newton’s Third Law of Motion states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

The Raccelerate Phenomenon follows the same principle as Newton’s Third Law of Motion in that whenever there is a perceived infringement by a Black male against a White female there is a negative overreaction portrayed in the media. Specifically, the Raccelerate Phenomenon states that for every action that a Black male takes against a White female there is an elevated negative reaction towards Black men. The Raccelerate Phenomenon is the cause for many of the racial tensions between Blacks and Whites.

What other Black men like De’Andre Johnson have suffered due to the Raccelerate Phenomenon?

One man who was impacted by the Raccelerate Phenomenon is Emmett Till. Emmett Till at the age of 14 was lynched for allegedly flirting with a White woman. In September 1955, the husband Roy Bryant and his half-brother J.W. Miliam were acquitted of the death of Emmett Till. Bryant and Milliam admitted shortly thereafter to the kidnapping and murder of Emmett Till.

In 1974, an 18-year-old blonde female South Bend High School student blonde alleged that she was raped by six Black football players. The woman was physically unharmed and the parents requested that no charges be filed against the players.

Thomas McGowan was falsely convicted of rape in Dallas, Texas and was eventually exonerated by DNA testing in 2008. McGowan had prior police contact because of a minor traffic violation and was wrongly identified by the victim. McGowan faced two separate trials connected to the December 4, 1985 incident. He was convicted of burglary and on March 7, 1986, and he was convicted of sexual assault. He received two consecutive life sentences.

Finally, in 1989, five Black and Latino teenagers aged 14 to 16 were arrested for allegedly raping of a white female jogger in New York’s Central Park. After hours of interrogation, without legal representation, and sleep deprivation four out of five defendants offered inconsistent confessions as to the crime location and their roles in the rape. Even though DNA testing was done on the evidence recovered from the victims before the trial and in all three cases did not match to any of the defendants, they were convicted strictly on their confessions and perceived guilt. Later DNA testing identified the real perpetrators.

This is a very shallow sampling of Black men like De’Andre Johnson who have become victimized by the Raccelerate Phenomenon.

About Classroom Racism Exterminator

Racism is a menace and so we’ve been taught for ages which is the primary need for a diversity expert. However, even in this modern society of today where we see a lot of colored celebrities performing on stage with huge fan followings and of course an Afro-America President for the USA, we are still in a phase where racism exists in all its brutal glory and has been eating away at the society like a plague. Classrooms, are one of the most affected areas where color differences and racism exists to its extremes. Even after decades of progress and a lot of communal efforts at bridging the gaps between colored students, white students and teachers, it is sad to say that the disparities still exist and are just as pronounced today as they were back in the 1950s. Colored students, even in the likes of New York City, are attending under resourced schools or have been significantly isolated and made to be unequal in regular schools. Even if the teachers are well-intentioned, perpetuating the structural racism that has taken deep roots into the fabric of our education system is a tough task and make the need for a diversity expert imperative. Teachers need to recognize the biases that exist within the classroom and also take conscious measures to address them and their own biases of course. James Baldwin once said, “it is your very own responsibility to change this society, if you think of yourself as an educated person.” Dr. Derrick L. Campbell took this quote very effectively and straight to the heart and thus this Classroom Racism Exterminator happened. Classroom Racism Exterminator is an initiative that will teach you about your duty and moral obligation towards eliminating racism from the classrooms. This is where and how you will learn about what you need to do to produce a better society that is free of biases and disparities amongst the blacks and the whites. Because we understand how classroom biases and conversations about racism are difficult and how teachers and students almost avoid the topics altogether, we have put together a range of effective methods and products to help address the problem at hand and talk meaningfully to counter issues related to race and racism in the classroom. Diversity expert Dr. Campbell understands that it takes a lot of courage to talk about race and racism and that racial issues need to be viewed through a very critical lens that can understand and attend to the pertaining aspects of racism in the classroom. And therefore through this website we have made a conscious effort to eliminate racism from the classroom and make the educational system equal and beneficial for all. We know and we understand that there are no words that can actually describe how racism feels. There are cases and everybody tends to deal with it in their own manner. Some might lash out verbally or others might just withdraw into shells. Whatever the case, people don’t talk about it openly and teachers don’t really make a conscious effort at addressing the issue. We don’t really know if our children or if the youth is learning to be educated or become racists in their classroom. Our program is focused on helping children of color and regardless of their race, their full potential. We want every student to be able to recognize and reach their full potential so that they think of themselves as responsible citizens of their country and not regard themselves as worthless human beings. Here you will find motivational books and flash card games, all of which have been designed focusing on eliminating racism completely from our classrooms. The books and the games have been consciously designed keeping in mind the American society and educational system. It is a small effort on our and Dr. Campbell’s part to help this society become a better place to live in. A little about diversity expert Dr. Campbell Dr. Derrick L. Campbell the driving force behind Classroom Racism Exterminator is a dynamic figure and a constant source of motivation for us. He has a Bachelors of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology, Math Education, a Masters in Education Administration and also holds a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership. Dr. Campbell is a well known personality throughout the nation. He has lectured at various events including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Iron Sharpens Iron Men’s Conference and a lot of local churches. He is a personality well dedicated towards eliminating the plague of racism from our classrooms and helping every child recognize his/her true potential not the color of their skin. He realizes how a child would feel if he/she was made to think they are worthless human beings. Diversity expert Dr. Campbell is compassionate and related to the experiences and therefore this initiative is a constant and continual effort to eliminate racism manifested in us, completely from the classroom and from our society.

    Good thing for Johnson it’s not 1955.

    • Jj says:

      USA has come too far to let the bad behaviors of a few athletes destroy the gains made in race relations. Johnson and fsu really need to step up and do some community building activities that include all people. His actions have certainly created some rifts in the community and sporting world
