Seattle Seahawks lineman Russell Okung has benefited immensely from the generosity of America.

But you wouldnt know it from stunning comments he just made.

Okungs Christian family fled violent Muslim oppression in Nigeria, finding safe haven in the U.S.A. yet he seethes with contempt for the American Dream, because of racism, or something.

From Breitbart:

Responding to an essay on economic inequality offered by Y Combinator co-founder Paul Graham, Okung, who founded a Seattle non-profit called GREATER, pontificated:

Some think working hard solves the problems of poverty and institutional oppression and the lack of social mobility. Some think that by sheer determination, one can overcome such issues. But economic inequality isnt the symptom; its the virus that attacks. You, Graham, like the rest of America, have been deceived. You are a victim of the American Dream, the belief that anyone who works hard can move up economically regardless of his or her social circumstances. American cultural optimism is one of the greatest lies ever told.

Yet few people have experienced that American dream as has Okung.

His family fled violence in Nigeria, traveling to several counties before America welcomed them in…to Texas. Okung graduated George Bush High School and then Oklahoma State. He was the 6th pick in the NFL draft.

And his hard work on the gridiron has paid off handsomely:

Okung plays in the midst of a six-year, $48,500,000 contract with the Seattle Seahawks. The deal included a $1,680,000 signing bonus, $29,300,000 in guaranteed money, and an average annual salary of $8,083,333.

Despite his salary, and activism highlighting the vile acts of Boko Haram that he discussed with Breitbart Sports a year ago, the offensive lineman rails against the American Dream.

So hes a millionaire 50 times over, but White Supremacy is keeping him down?

So many people will never experience their dreams because there are far too many barriers of entry they cant do anything about, Okung opines. And that all goes back to that elitism the elitism thats manufacturing economic inequality.

Unbelievable. And guess who he cites as his hero:

People like [Barack Obama], who are actively working to expand capital and invest in untapped talent across America.

Typical liberal hypocrite. What a disappointing role model for American youth.
