Former Seahawks DT Brandon Mebane opens up about discrimination

Former Seattle Seahawks defensive http://www.ravensshopsofficial.com/shop … -2_19.html tackle Brandon Mebane recently wrote  a blog post detailing his experiences with housing discrimination. Mebane, who spent nine seasons in Seattle before signing with the Chargers last year, was on the hunt for a new rental after his team’s relocation to Los Angeles.
Mebane joined 710 ESPN Seattle on Thursday and shared his story with radio host Gee Scott.
“What people have to understand is this: They’re not going to come out and say, ‘OK, you’re black,” Mebane said. “We’re not going to choose you to be the tenants of this house.’ People are not going to come out and actually say that. People use other ways and different tactics and different things to come out and say, ‘We don’t want you in our neighborhood,’ pretty much.”
Despite presenting a competitive http://www.armacan.com/devin-funchess-jersey-c-1_9.html rental application including cover letter, references and six months advanced payment, the Mebanes were told they were denied housing based on the fact the other applicants had a slightly higher credit score.
Mebane said other teammates had experienced similar situations, which he wrote about in his blog.
In another instance, Mebane said he and his wife felt the effects of racial discrimination when followed continuously by a security guard throughout a Louis Vuitton store.
“Just a day in the life of what African Americans go through,” Mebane explained. “It’s a lot of racial things that we go through that a lot of us don’t talk about, and I feel like we need to be talking it to make people aware that these things are still existing. Slavery may not be existent now in 2017, but things from slavery have carried Ed Dickson Authentic Jersey over into the lives of us, and these types of things, if we don’t talk about it, it’s just going to continue onto our children’s children.
