Posted on 01/01/2016 3:34:15 PM PST by MinorityRepublican
For as long as the sport of football has been around, black quarterbacks have faced harsher criticism and have been handed shorter leashes than their white peers -- a clear double standard that continues to plague the sport.
If you don't believe us, just look at how the fans and media have treated two of the league's top quarterbacks this season: The Carolina Panthers' Cam Newton and the New England Patriots' Tom Brady. Twitter user @IAmSpilly perfectly encapsulated their differing situations in a single tweet.

Not going to Huff post.
Prolly idiocy anyway.
Cam “only one loss this years” Newton is widely idolized.
Tom “Deflategate” Brady is widely reviled.
All quarterbacks face criticism. The Huff Post is trolling for the race of professional victims.
More race bait from HuffPoo. Yawn.
Cam Newton 1
Tom Brady 21
Rush Limbaugh was right about Donovan McNabb, and Huff Po is proving that nothing has changed.
No hit for Huff.
Stats don’t lie. Michael Vick was the biggest pos to ever play the game.
Rush was right. Donovan McNabb WAS overrated. In his generation, Brady, Manning, Roethlisberger, Rogers, Favre were all better than he was. The sports media were calling him the best. He was good, don’t misunderstand, but he was never the best.
I reject the premise, that being pro-Trump is a negative.
Huffpo keeps mentioning all the racist things Trump says...why don’t they give an example.
I’m watching the best college player in the nation playing for Stanford today. The odds of a white guy winning the Heisman? Low!
The whining about Cam’s dancing is retarded. But I don’t think it happens because he’s black, it happens because there’s a crowd of people that whine when ANY player celebrates. It’s the same crowd that whines about bat flipping in baseball, some folks just don’t want anybody having fun, not even people playing a game.
I can only say one thing. These teams are playing to win, they play the best players, black, brown, white or green.
Brady is a racist for being a friend of and supporting Trump.
All white people are racist because someone tweeted something negative about Can Newton for celebrating a touchdown.
Seriously. That’s the gist of this HuffPoo stupidity.
