Desean Jackson Putting His Words Into Actions Through Education
As NFL Insider Adam Caplan detailed on Thursday's Football At Four, many people are watching to see what Desean Jackson does to learn from his mistakes promoting Anti-Semitic Quotes on Social Media. As of Friday, there is now evidence of Desean Jackson putting his contrition for his social media posts into action.
ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reports that Desean Jackson has met with people yesterday and today in his efforts to educate himself about the history of Anti-Semitism:
This report comes out hours after Patriots Wide Receiver Julian Edelman, well known for his own research into his Jewish Heritage, stated on Twitter that he has spoken with Desean Jackson and they are making plans to work on educating each other
Desean Jackson had apologized multiple times on social media, once before and again after meeting with the Eagles, for posting an Anti-Semitic Quote falsely attributed to Hitler and other controversial quotes from Louis Farrakhan. Before Jackson spoke with Edelman, DJax had a Facetime call with the Chairman of the Philadelphia Holocaust Memorial David Adelman along with Co-Chairman of the Reform Alliance and Sixers Minority Owner Michael Rubin
All of this is on the heels of the announcement this week that Eagles Owner Jeffrey Lurie's Film Company has completed a three year project about Antisemitism called The Meaning of Hitler
Desean Jackson is also working towards to a return to the field in 2020 after missing the majority of last season due to an injury following Week One when he caught two touchdowns and energized Eagles Fans with his chemistry with Carson Wentz.
