Aldon Smith is tweeting about double standard with Johnny Manziel

Fooch's update: Think I got a handle on it. Aldon is pissed he got punished and Manziel did not.

I really don't know what to make of this. Former San Francisco 49ers pass rusher Aldon Smith is a free agent and currently serving a year long suspension for various offenses. On Friday, several hours after the Cleveland Browns released Johnny Manziel, Smith tweeted four tweets. I saw the first two, then he tweeted a third, deleted those first three and then tweeted out the wink emoticon. Kyle McLorg was able to capture the whole thing/

At first glance it reads like he is blaming the NFL (shield) for what happened to him and Manziel. But then there's the mention of "black problems" and the wink. I really don't know what to make of it. It could be nothing, but I am curious how others interpret it. I am genuinely curious to figure out what he means by all this.
