“A lot of the criticism he’s receiving is unfortunate and racially based,” Moon told Freeman. “I thought we were all past this. I don’t see other quarterbacks in the draft being criticized by the media or fans about their smile or called a phony. He’s being held to different standards from white quarterbacks. I thought we were past all this stuff about African-American quarterbacks, but I guess we’re not.
“Of course there is racism in every walk of society. We’ve made a lot of progress in this country. But racism is still there. I just thought in the sports arena we were beyond it. I think the way Cam is being treated shows we’re not. . . .
“The thing that makes me laugh is the question of can [Newton] come out of the spread offense? Can he run a pro offense? Colt McCoy came out of the spread offense and very few people raised that issue about him. So did Sam Bradford. Same thing. Very few questions asking if Bradford could run a pro offense. Some of these questions about Cam are more about his intellect. It’s blatant racism, some of it.”

If he thinks Nawrocki is racist, he should go back and read his review of Josh Freeman (among others).

This stuff is just stupid.

racism does still exist, but come on. The Golden Calf of Bristol had the same questions about how he'd adjust to a pro system that Cam Newton did. Bradford was supposed to have an adjustment period. Colt McCoy, too.

Come on. Remember the "Pro ready" Jimmy Clausen? Do you think they would have bothered with that term if they actually meant "Everyone who is white is pro ready"? Meh.

Cam may be facing racial bias but I do NOT think it is in terms of "can he adjust to an NFL offense." This is the same question ALL spread QBs are facing. People bring it up with Gabbert... or they did before the recent Wonderlic/splurge of "Chalk Talk" board work with Gabbert stuff.

The Golden Calf of Bristol faced the same criticisms as Cam regarding his game. He also faced criticism because he is an outspoken christian.

Sorry, but when you put yourself out there like these guys do, criticism is part of the package.

They didn't say they thought The Golden Calf of Bristol would have a hard time running a pro offense, at least the majority didn't... It was his mechanics that were scrutinized. And not a fair comparison either because The Golden Calf of Bristol was more heavily criticized than other white QBs because of his beliefs and outspoken nature regarding them.

So... when black reporter talks crap about white QB... its ok. But when white reporter talks crap about black QB its a "racial bias". Same old poo, different day.
