George Washington Carver. He was an African American version of Thomas Edison. A brilliant man who contributed a great deal to Southern agriculture and society.

To avoid some obvious names I will go with Garrett Augustus Morgan. The inventor of the "modern" traffic light.

too broad of a question. too many great things by too many great people. could you pick the greatest white person? that's kind of a silly question isn't it?

neil degrasse tyson and cornell west are on my list of favorite living people in general.

I could pick the greatest white American. Ronald Wilson Reagan, baby.

I gotta go with my homeboy, Cassius Clay. So sad that Parkinson's has taken away his ability to speak. He really is a great guy, and not just a great athlete. I don't think he had anything for Tyson, though. Ali in his prime and Tyson in his prime? TKO in three.

I agree with this assessment.

I dont think a sports figure should be in the running for greatest African American, there are so many others that have done a lot for the advancement of their people. MLK has to be up near the top for me.

    • Same people defending Hillary a few months ago are now drawing the conclusion that Flynn... and by association Trump... must be guilty of something because Flynn is getting immunity from the FBI. Works both ways. For the record... IMHO both Hillary and Trump are crooks.  If justice in this nation were truly blind these two politicians and their henchmen would be doing a long stretch in prison by now.
    • Slot receivers don't exist in 2 TE sets unless we're lining a TE on the outside which I haven't seen much out of the currently constructed Panthers. Maybe McCaffrey if he were to be split out wide but the Panthers usually keep a RB with Cam in-case Cam needs the extra protection and audibles the RB to block.  The Panthers would be best suited pairing KB with a speedster such as Charles Johnson, who's adept at running deep routes. Keep Howard and possible the RB (if not blocking) on short routes, KB on working the intermediate routes, Olsen running intermediate/deep routes, and Johnson running deep routes. That way Cam has a receiver on every level. All of this assumes Shula constructs a properly worked passing attack. 
    • Yes, that is correct. My point being Clinton was impeached and stayed in office. Almost everyone calling for impeachment of Trump thinks it means to remove him from office. He would have to be impeached and then found guilty to do that. The impeachment alone does not remove him. And my original point, no one was bringing up the electoral college back then. It makes no sense. Because the popular would surely rid us of corrupt politicians, right?
