Miko Grimes Decides On The Popular Bigot Route

Jenna Laine reported on Miko Grimes, the wife of former Miami Dolphins and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Brent Grimes, blasting Miami management using anti-Semitic language that she later tried to clarify. In a tweet referencing Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum, Miko Grimes tweeted:

Grimes later clarified on Twitter that her intent was not to offend Jewish people, tweeting:

She went further in a statement to ESPN:

“When I wrote ‘jew buddies’ I was speaking about how a lot of communities (Jewish, Christian, gay, sometimes fraternities and sororities) will hire their ‘own people’ for jobs before others. That’s a fact! Why people find facts offensive is strange to me. And now im a racist? Lmao! How?”

She added: “If what I said is racist or anti-Semitic, why isn’t it also racist to only hire their own? America is just an easily offended, fake reacting, bunch of cry baby a– p——! Anyone that thinks I’m a racist needs to build a f—— bridge and get over it. I’m not a racist, I’m a realist.”

In March, the Bucs signed the four-time Pro Bowl player to a two-year contract worth $16.5 million. Grimes, who will be 33 this month, had just been named to the Dolphins’ 50th anniversary team when he was released in March. He was scheduled to make $8 million in 2016 and count $9.5 million against the cap.

At NFL owners meetings, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross acknowledged that Miko Grimes’ social media posts played a role in Grimes’ departure from Miami. “I think everybody knows what she represented,” Ross said to reporters. “I thought it was best that the Dolphins move on from Brent and Miko.”

There are two issues here. The first is personal. As a black person who is about equality and justice, I am always miffed at ethnic, racial or religious minorities who harbor bigoted thoughts about other ethnic, racial or religious minorities. In fact, I am always curious as to why any minority would want to stereotype or generally believe in discrimination against any other minority. We have more in common in struggle than we do differences based on appearance or beliefs.

Secondly, as a significant other of a public face with a market value, you should always be careful about affecting market value. While we tend to focus on women and wives, this applies to men and husbands as well. She has already no-doubt cost her husband money, and is quickly gaining a reputation around the league. While I applaud her for not caring, awareness of the effects of your actions is never a bad thing.
