Julio Jones to testify

So, Julio Jones will most likely testify in a murder trial, and no, he's not a suspect. He's supposed to testify for the prosecution. More
Also, by viewing the comments thread, both Auburn and Bama fans need to take classes in both sensitivity training and, fuck, I dunno, anti-racism. I understand that the rivalry between Alabama and Auburn is forever-intense, but to stoop to racial stereotyping and degrading a kid (albeit an amazing football prospect) based upon where he lives is fucking ridiculous. A person is not automatically a thug or a poor student because he or she comes from an an area with high rates of both crime and poverty. If that were the case, the Williams sisters would be the most thugged out tennis players in the history of the game (and everybody knows that Martina Hingis and Jennifer Capriati have that shit on lock for the last two decades.) So, read the comments thread and prepare not to be astonished.
