From the Dallas Morning News’ Calvin Watkins (h/t to David Roth, Brendan Flynn) :

Dallas Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett released a song on YouTube that uses derogatory terms to describe African-Americans and gays.

Bennett, who is African-American, wears a white, autographed Cowboys helmet during the video, which lasts almost three minutes.

“I shouldn’t cuss that much,” Bennett said. “I’ve been listening to [rapper] Too Short too much.”

Dessie Brown Jr., Bennett’s friend, released the video to select media members and asked that they watch and also listen to a rap song on Bennett’s MySpace page. In an e-mail, Brown wrote, “excuse the language on both.”

The clip in question has since been “removed from user”, however, the same cannot be said for all of Mr. Bennett’s attempts at free expression.

  1. Dallas Cowboys to David Williams (via Wilco): I Am Trying To Break Your Heart.

    Well, it won’t work. I. Just. Stopped. Caring.

    Until next year.
