    Why Troy Aikman’s ‘Back The Blue’ Tweet Is Viewed As Tone-Deaf After This Horrible Week
    To start, he didn’t even mention the two black men who were killed on Tuesday and Wednesday.
    2 days ago | Updated 16 hours ago

    Juliet Spies-Gans The Huffington Post
    Troy Aikman expressed his solidarity with police departments around the nation Friday morning, tweeting out a Fox News graphic with what some users thought was an insensitive and telling disregard of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile’s deaths earlier this week.

    “Sadly most police departments around the country don’t feel much support these days,” the Dallas Cowboys legend wrote, pairing the tweet with a “#backtheblue” hashtag.

    Aikman’s words came the morning after a sniper ambushed and killed five police officers at a peaceful Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas, Texas ― a rally that, in turn, was in response to the killing of Sterling and Castile at the hands of the police on Tuesday and Wednesday.

    Reactions to the tweet came quickly and angrily.

    @TroyAikman nither do minorities but that doesn’t matter. Right?

    @TroyAikman never said shit after any unarmed killing by police but real quick with the killing of police.

    — jason p (@jjp357) July 8, 2016
    To be clear, it’s not that these users unequivocally take issue with any show of support for police officers. Rather, what they saw as problematic here was (1) Aikman’s radio silence on the deaths of the two black men days earlier, and, relatedly, (2) his categorical, unqualified support for the police during a week in which we got two cruel reminders that racial prejudice still runs rampant throughout the force, consciously or otherwise influencing the choices some cops make while on the clock.

    A screenshot from the video recording of Alton Sterling’s death.

    Those at the Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas yesterday had gathered in the hope of bridging the gap felt between themselves and the police ― not widening the schism that separates them. They had gathered in the hope of solidarity, not division. So framing this as an us-versus-them issue was considered counterproductive and incorrect ― not to mention offensive and potentially incendiary.

    It’s possible to mourn the officers we lost in Thursday’s ambush and the two black civilians we lost earlier this week. It’s possible to support the officers doing good work and demand a change in the way the police force as a whole approaches and responds to on-duty discrimination.

    It’s possible ― and, in fact, should be quite easy. If Aikman needs a blueprint for how to do so, these athletes would be happy to show him the ropes.

    I have mostly voted liberal in my life but the number one most upsetting thing to me right now is the tone that supporting the police or waving an American flag is now seen as kind of hostile or offensive. That's really pathetic to me.

    Ariana Huffington, the ultimate leftie gold digger. Her husband was a Republican and she was for a while after he died. Then she discovered that she wasn't getting invited to the right parties, so she became a rabid leftie. Besides turning her husband homo...she was well known in London and exhausted the social scene there before she met Michael Huffington. In London she was known as Sir Edmund Hillary of social climbing or most upwardly mobile Greek since Icarus.

    He'd be toast already if he worked for ESPN. They'd have an intern busy scrubbing Aikman from all 90's Cowboys highlights as we speak.

    When BLM starts expressing concern for all the unarmed whites killed by LE, instead of being selfishly vacuum-visioned (to the point of disrupting the parade of another persecuted minority in the Toronto LGBT parade), then they might have more traction whining about Aikman supporting the civil servants who mostly protect them also. Until then, STFU
