the NAACP awards

24 posts in this topic

I was watching a DVR'd show last night and seen the ads for this.

Doesn't something like this put more of a wedge in race relations? Is a show like this really needed? Thirty years ago I may understand, but now, it seems pointless. Question: What if a white people group had a award show, how would that go? Double standard?

I could see the point, but I'm sure if a black artist came along that was good in that genre they would at least be up for awards.

white, black, asian, latino, all won naacp awards at that show. you'd be aware of that if you actually watched it instead of seeing an ad and jumping to pretending you're a victim.

    • Love the Cobb comparison, and Samuel could even be better.   Here are comparable measurements....   Cobb-- 5'10, 191 lbs, 31 arm length, 9 3/8 hands, 4.46 40yd, 16 bench, 33.5 vert, 115 broad, 7.08 3 cone, 4.34 shuttle Curt-- 5'11, 195 lbs,  31.25 arm length, 9 1/2 hands, 4.31 40yd, 18 bench, 37 vert, 119 broad, 7.09 3 cone, 4.33 shuttle   the only thing Cobb beats him in is the 3 cone drill. Curtis beats Cobb in every other measurable, and is taller and 5 lbs bigger. They even have similar birthdays and were drafted at 20 yrs old each, cobb turned 21 in august of his rookie year, Samuel will be 21 in august.
