Yeah that's fine but I don't care to hear anything about race in the NFL when,

WR is dominated by what?

RB is dominated by what?

CB is dominated by what?

Cam hasn't shot anyone, beat up anyone, raped anyone, or had a DUI.

So how about we stick to talking about his play.

That was a good write up, and like most I really wish the media would stop comparing the two but we all know that will never happen.

i used to agree with this, but it's dodging the heart of the issue, which is that perceptions of a black QB playing a predominantly white position are far different than, say, perceptions of a white RB playing a position that is predominantly black.

nobody's calling anyone racist, but there are definitely misconceptions and biases based, commonly if not always intentionally, on a racial basis.

No, they're not really that different at all. They're both based on negative racial stereotypes. They're based on the stereotype that white guys aren't athletic enough to play CB or RB and they're based on the stereotype that black guys aren't smart enough to play QB. They're both negative, just one is physical and one is mental. That's really the only difference.
