    He was also the first in a really really long time. NFL countdown did a story on how opposing WRs did not respect him at first when they saw he was white.

    I just know this is a bad idea. . .

    So, if ur a black guy in high school wanting to be a CEO, u better find another dream?

    all i am saying is who cares about color? I have no problem with you man. But as a white guy i get called a racist in the media constantly. And now i get called a racist by the current occupant in the WH. So i get bothered when stuff like that is brought up. No offense, just gets under my skin.

    We have done quite well with our 7th rd CB picks but one didn't play until he was with somebody else and another is currently with another team.

    The fact we drafted this guy was a reach. I doubt he was on any other draft board.

    But i could be wrong and he could be useful on special teams i just think they were too obsessed with the idea of a big CB wit their 2 picks at that position.

    I guess you can call a mixed player anything you want. Tiger woods is 50% Asian, 37.5% black and 12.5% Native American and all anybody sees in him is black.

    He's a Buddhist and his favorite food is Thai because his mother is from Thailand but you never here about that.

    As a black guy I've never looked at it that way but I can definitely see where your coming from. I always looked at it different from a regular job but its a valid comparison. In some ways, its much more than JUST a job.

    Good comparison. With the white dude I knew, I never knew of a corner better than him. He was the fastest and most athletic corner on our team. What if he didn't make it because of his color? Does racism really go on in sports like that on some teams?

    I dont think its a sports thing brother. Just an American thing that we need to get past. Unfortunately, there will always be shlt stirrers who intentionally inflame it for profit.
