The press does it's best to promote racial tensions, that is for sure.

Tony Dungy and Mike Tomlin are two recent African American coaches that won SuperBowls. I think it’s time to retire this tripe.

"Your ethnicity does not give you an advantage in coaching football. "

Maybe for kicker or defensive corner but not coaching.

"How does it feel being an African American Coach going to the Super Bowl?"

What we have here is a little social concern. The media is highly desirous of seeing a black coach succeed.

Hold on, the phone is ringing. Hello, pepsi here. what? Are you serious? Oh. I see. [click]

ESPN just fired me.

From an objective standpoint it’s a racist question, the left has turned everything upside down.

A reporters desperate attempt to seem meaningful. Absolutely disgusting.

I really wish he’d have said, “Probably the same as a white coach feels going to the Super Bowl. Why do you ask?”

Why do people use African American and Caucasian?

If they use African American they should use Europian American.

If they want to use Caucasion they should use Negroid and Mongoloid.

Is it not the same to a Caucasian coach if he gets to the super bowl? Is it not the same level of coaching involved?

Shhhhhh!!!! Dude, you wanna wreck Affirmative Action?

My guess would be “Roughly the same as it feels to be a Caucasian-American coach going to the Super Bowl”. But that’s just me.

Fans don't see "blackcoach." Players don't see "blackcoach." Only the dumbass media sees "blackcoach."

The rest of us see coach. Period.

When Dungy faced Lovie Smith he was asked this or a similiar question and he replied to the effect that it was more important he and Lovie were Christians than African-Americans.

Call me a racist if you will.

I didn’t see the interview. Can someone who did see it share with us some information about the interviewer who asked this question?

I’m not much of a sports fan so I’m not familiar with this man. Is this coach light-skinned? Does he have a negro dialect?

Just picked this thread to mention Obozo wants the Saints to win because of Katrina.

Golly, who could have thunk it?
