the only people still surprised at this are the so-called ‘enlightened’ liberals - who are way more ob sessed with race than the people they accuse of racism

I thought Doug Williams did that in Super Bowl XXII?
I could care less if my QB was green and had a 3rd hand growing out of his ass as long as he wins football games. This ‘Black QB” stuff is garbage. No one cares what color he is. All we care about is can he win a damn Super Bowl.

If "multiculturalism" exists then the majority of black Americans must be part of a different culture than mine. I don't really care too much about watching other cultures since, after all, it is as if they are some other, distant nation.
The NFL can associate itself with any culture it chooses. Depending on their selection I'll decide how interested I am in their product.
After all, I've never even wagered on the first dog fight.

Different sport of course, but while I don't receive MLB Network on my cable I came across it earlier this week and the discussion was the recent three-team trade involving the Reds. A white anchor said to Harold Reynolds (who is black) that a player (black) reminded him of Pokey Reese. He immediately asked Reynolds if the comparison was racist (to compare two blacks). Reynolds said it was not. I am not sure if there is a history or other meaning since I am not familiar with the white host but I found it odd in that discussing similarities of players from different eras, the followup had to do with if it is racist.
