  • It's simply Black and White

    Race. Everybody seems too afraid to talk about it. The media plays the most important role in race. Creating stories that draw attention and make people emotional is their job. News channels and papers get better ratings when more people watch and read their material. Everybody has the right to know what is happening in the world, but I think it is taken a bit too far sometimes. The media manipulates video coverage by taking small segments of what people say and piecing it together to make something look like what it not really is. I realize that a lot of people already see through the smoke and know this, but sometimes it baffles me how stupid some people are that actually believe most of the B.S. they see and hear. With the rise of 'YouTube' and many other online videos, it just continues to get worse. The point behind this is; the media is constantly causing a barrier between 'Whites' and 'Blacks' in the world. Always putting a spin on a story or manipulating it to make it look like something more or different than what it really is, putting things completely out of context, they are the backbone of continuing racism in the world. If it wasn't for all the crap we watched and read by the media, most Blacks and Whites could live in serenity. The media may cause much of the racial tension in the world, but that isn't why I'm writing this. After all this is a 'Football' blog. I am writing this because I am getting tired of this debate over Quarterbacks in the NFL, and I think it's more about race and less about whether a QB simply 'fits the bill' or not. So many people say that Black QB's are 'under the radar' so to speak, more than White QB's, so let's debate that. Here is my take. White, Black, Brown, Green, Purple, Blue... Whatever. Tavaris Jackson: Terribly inaccurate and won't make it in the NFL. He doesn't work worth a s**t under pressure despite having one of the best offensive lines in the NFL along with one of the best running games bar none. I don't care if your recievers are the 'Brady Bunch', and you are the rookiest of rookies. Jackson should have done much better last year. Vince Young: Very talented. Pretty accurate. Powerful arm. Good pocket poise. Not very smart, has a problem learning plays, and his recievers couldn't catch a cold last year. Another team with a good running game but still poor output. After another year or two of learning, Young could be a great QB. He's a good scrambler too. Warren Moon: Good QB. Played too long. Donovan McNabb. Still has it. Good scrambler. Accurate Passer. Powerful arm. Smart. Came back too soon from a knee injury. His receivers are better then people give them credit for. He needs to throw the ball more often to somebody not named Brian Westbrook (part of the reason he had to throw more check downs, was he wasn't getting enough protection from his line to throw the deep ball).
    Steve McNair. Awesome in his prime. Smart. Accurate. Powerful. Great Scrambler. It's time for him to retire. Micheal Vick: Good srambler. Powerful arm. Terribly inaccurate. Couldn't seem to remember that he was a QB and not a RB. woof, woof. I'd be here all day if I tried to evaluate all the white QB's that have been in the NFL. However the ratio of bad to good in my opinion is about the same.
    People tend to argue that there are not enough black QB's in the NFL, as well as Black coaches. That trend is starting to change. However, we only here one side of the coin. What about white RB's? How many White RB's are there in the NFL? I am not talking FB's, because they don't get to carry the ball usually anyway, they just block. I don't hear a bunch of whining about that. As far as I'm concerned, I don't care who plays what position as long as that person is playing the position for the right reasons. I don't think race should be the main issue, but rather who is the best player for the job. The media constantly hypes this stuff up so somebody will cry racism and they can get higher ratings. We have TV channels such as Black Starz and Black Entertainment Television which segregates Blacks and Whites alike. Then their are channels that are predominantly white, but they don't say it in their title, because they could get sued if they did. As long as this sh*t exists, people will always be divided. And unfortunately I don't see it changing anytime soon. Call me a racist, call me what you want, but at least I keep it real. I'm tired of trying to be politically correct.

    Personally I like to make racist jokes all the time and I like to stereotype but in no way do I believe things I might say. It is always funny to see stereotypes come true though. The people I've met who are afraid or hesitant to talk about race and stereotypes tend to actually be racist.

      Sometimes I wish I was in the future where we wouldn't have to deal with this, along with rocket boots.

      The media makes us afraid of each other. It's a big problem in this country. We need to think about how most we people are fine, and that's most people.

      Hang in there.

        The problem is all my jokes are racist and I can't tell them.

            Seriously race is one of those, "Who cares?" issues. The fact that this topic is even there shows that we're not color blind yet which is pretty sad.

                I will admit I use stereotypes and stuff like that, but I'm not happy about that.

                    I've always thought that people with actual prejudices often use politically correct language to hide them. This probably reached its peak in the 90s, remember the Seinfeld episode "not that there's anything wrong with that" about being gay? Hopefully as the old guard starts disappearing and the actual prejudices that necessitated an entire vocabulary of euphamisms die out, then once again we can call a spade a f*&^ing shovel.

                    Oh, yeah, and hit ENTER every now and again. The congestion of that post hurts my brain.

                      No idea why you didn't name Doug Williams. He was another real good black QB.

                      Facts are facts, white people are better QBs and black people are better RBs. Can a black person be a great QB? Of course, and a white person can be a great RB. It's just much more likely to be the other way around.

                      It's all because of slavery too. White slave masters used to 'breed' slaves. They would take their biggest strongest male and female slave and force them to mate in order to make a extremly productive slave baby. That, combined with blacks working in the fields all, day gave them superior athletic genes. On the contrary, most slave masters didn't allow their slaves to be educated which leaves blacks behind mentally. (Note: Not all slave masters did this, and obviously not all black people have inferior intelligence. I'm mainly pointing to the superior athletes.)

                      This directly relates to the wonderlic test. You can draw your own conclusions.

                        WFB Comments on Vikings @ Steelers Game Rigging
                        PuppyPuncher:"It sure was nice enough of Roger Goodell to let the refs from Ark-Florida officiate the Vikings-Steelers game"
                        NoNonsenseCoach:"As a Steelers fan living in Pittsburgh I can still admit that tripping penalty was a complete ghost call."
                        Simonds:"The tripping call was awful, yes, but there were a number of other absurd calls that went against the Vikings, including a DEFENSIVE delay of game penalty against the Vikings only called after a failed attempt to convert a third and 2 by the Steelers. Even the commentators were utterly floored that the refs made that call."
                        Wraith36444:"A shady tripping call on Minnesota essentially gave the game to the Steelers. The Vikings were the better team, but it is too hard to beat a decent team and the refs. Oh and Harvin is the man."
                        MaineMan:"I have to agree that it was an awful call and that it changed the outcome. Overall a great game by the Vikes and tragic that the well-deserved victory was stolen away like that."
                        PaddyPatriot:"I've seen this play and I have to agree, I can't believe they called it tripping"
                        Johndoe:"You know the officiating is bad when a Steeler's fan, like myself, thinks it was pretty bad."
                        Steelers_Pens_Fan:"I will admit that the whole "tripping" thing probably shouldn't have been a flag."
                        ZN0rseman:"It's great to know that good old fashioned pro football game rigging is still alive and well in America."
                        Klunker18:"I'm with Z on this one. Definitely one of those games that makes you wonder if the NFL wants certain teams to win."
                        TRICKaz"I agree that was a BS call"
                        InjuredReserve:"Have yet to hear anyone say it was the right call. Seems as if the Vikings were cheated a bit."
                        Eagles4Life:"Coaches just need to be able to challenge penalties"
                        EL_Guapo:"The tripping call was bad, the delay of game was stupid Either way, the Vikings showed they are a top team."
                        EllijayFalconsFan:"The tripping penalty was rediculous."
                        Archon095:"Even as a Steeler fan I agree that the call was bull."
                        BroncosCon:"I'm sorry that was a total bull**** call and it changed the outcome of the game. Pittsburgh still won, but it was almost like Denver winning at Cincy."

                        Tony Dungy:"The Vikings are just one bad tripping penalty away from being undefeated.
                        Jon Gruden:"That was just a bad, bad call. It cost the Vikings an important win at Pittsburgh, and it could really hurt them in the post season."

                              I've noticed the exact same thing. They're also the first to claim something is racist when it really isn't.
