Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver DeSean Jackson has apologized for a recent anti-Semitic social media post.
Over the weekend, Jackson posted on Instagram a page from a book titled “The Hidden Treasure That Lies in Plain Sight 4: The Day of the Lord and the End of America”, which stated: “Hitler said, ‘because the white Jews know that the Negroes are the real Children of Israel and to keep Americas secret the Jews will blackmail America.'”
Jackson also repeatedly promoted the Nation of Islam head Louis Farrakhan whom the Daily Caller describes as a “notorious anti-Semite”.
Jackson subsequently apologized for the post.
“Anyone who feels I have hate towards the Jewish community took my post the wrong way. I have no hatred in my heart toward no one!! Equality. Equality”, he wrote.
