You had the option to not post in it, instead you obliged and stuck your nose in.

And if you must know I like the article the fact that it contradicted KT was just a bonus.

Death by Exile!!

I don't think the cartoon itself is racist....

I think the tendency to hammer on a young black QB is tied into race. He is 3 games off a record setting season and his team sit at 1-2 like such teams as NE and GB.

I don't see any criticism of Cam as racist at all. There were high expectations and he ;and the whole team gave struggled). He has some behavior tendencies on the sideline that should be addressed.

Remember, Favre was traded...Elu was bashed in the media...etc.

High profile QB's are always under the microscope and face criticism.

This. Quoting jason whitlock articles isnt helping the OP's case.

In some cases that is undoubtedly true unfortunately. Some of the things said about Cam pre draft would defiantly racially biased. (VY and Jamarcus Russel didn't help the situation any)

My only response to the criticism of Cam is you don't see Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady overly celebrating when the game is out of reach and then pouting on the sideline, this it isn't a race issue it is a maturity issue. Ex. Rodgers champion belt celebration.

When Cam gets his ego and temperament in control he will achieve true greatness, mind you I'm not even saying he needs to be humble (lets be honest that wont happen) I'm only suggesting he needs to choose his spots when to be Super-Man better.

You no doubt consider him an "Uncle Tom".

Even though he is right, using the race card only discredits and draws more negative attention to him.

Can I get a link to Cam drawing the race card in any pressers/interviews?

Thanks.

I was speaking directly to about the writers and fans that use the race card not Cam.

Did you watch the game? I'm fairly certain we didn't score again.

We needed two tds and two conversions, the right side of our line couldn't block a damn thing and our defense couldn't buy a stop.

If you don't think the game was out of reach go take a look at Cams demeanor after the TD.

I would pay someone a LOT of money if we could have one full season without someone on this board whining about race or whining about someone else whining about race.

And for the love of christ why would you create a thread aimed entirely at trolling the one person on this board who you know for a fact thinks everything that has to do with a black athlete in Charlotte is part of the racist bourgeoisie (which apparently has never advanced past the 1850s according to one or two posters on this board) trying to keep a minority down.

There are plenty of football related things to obsess over.
