Deion Sanders Claims Reporter Is Racially Biased

Deion Sanders is not happy with a white reporter in Dallas, claiming the reporter is an “African-American killer” who goes after black subjects.

The comments come after Sanders faced issues with his new charter school, Prime Prep Academy. The school is facing athletic eligibility issues, and Sanders claims that negative media attention comes from media members who have personal and racial vendettas.

“This all started mainly by a Caucasian reporter from a news station, Channel 8,” said Sanders. “It seems like he’s the African American killer. It’s always something against a brother, and that bothers me.”

Fox Sports says the reporter Sanders is referring to is Brett Shipp, who works for WFAA-TV.

Sanders says he will be suing Dallas public schools who have tried to keep transfer students to Sanders’ charter school athletically ineligible.
