During Thursday’s broadcast of “First Take” on ESPN2, co-host Stephen A. Smith reacted to the report that former Nebraska defensive end and projected top 10 pick of the 2015 NFL Draft tested positive for marijuana use. Gregory tested positive for the same drug in January 2014 and April 2014 while at Nebraska and faced being kicked off the team if he failed a third test.
Smith stated that he noticed there are not any white football players getting called out for smoking weed.
“Don’t you notice again, Skip, all of these are brothers. I don’t see anybody — I don’t see the white guys getting called out for smoking weed. You put a shot of all of these guys smoking weed that got busted for it, that got caught with it and all this stuff, all of them, practically all of them, black, black, black, black, black, black, black. Ah! Ah! Just tired of it! Blowing millions for some weed? Really?”
