Too often athletes don't speak out on issues, losing both the platform and experience they have to bring a valuable voice to the table, whatever the cause may be. Unfortunately, even more often, when athletes do weigh in, a collective groan tells them to "just focus on sports."
Well, Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones wasn't about to let the latter happen, and excellently shut down a Twitter user who told him to just "worry about getting us fans another championship," rather than speak on the issue of racial politics.
To begin, Jones posted a series of tweets staring a debate on #BlackLivesMatter.
Whether you agree with Jones or not, he has an opinion and should be able to share it -- his talents in the gridiron don't strip him of that.
Nevertheless, after that tweet, a user responded to Jones, unhappy that the football player dare speak out on anything other than, well, football.
We now present Jones perfect response:
The user is now off of Twitter. Do not tell Jones -- or any other athlete, for that matter -- to just stick to sports.
