Happy for Kaep, and hope he and his team get the victory Sunday. I root for guys like Kaepernick. Cam will eventually get to the Superbowl, though.

It just seems like a dumb comment, going from the worst team in the league to Super Bowl bound has never been done in two seasons.

How long have you been following the Panthers?

I simply don't get why when it comes to Cam, the Panthers don't seem to matter. It's like the team dynamic don't seem to count for anything. Cam isn'f further along because he's playing on a team that is learning how to walk again.

Those in the media are desparately trying to make it appear as if Luck and Cam were in the same boat being drafted at number one. But truth be told, the Colts were a much better team than their 2011 season showed. The Panthers are a team like the Colts when Peyton was a rookie. They are seriously learning how to win and enjoy winning. I believe the Panthers will get to the SB with Cam. The question you folks need to ask yourselves is, are you willing to be patient and let your team remember what it's like to run and be competitive again, so to speak.

In all honesty, I love Colin. When I see him, it makes me realize how hypocritical the media are with Cam. That kid makes Cam look like he wears suits to practice. Colin is so laid-back and with the guy from the neighborhood attitude.

Until he gets locked up next week after the super bowl then he is fully black. Plus, not many pure black people left in America other than first generation Africans. oh...you mean the skin tone. My bad! Carry on!

Exactly if he robbed a bank or committed any crime he would be listed as black in the police records. All black Americans are mixed......most black Americans are anywhere from 10 to 20 percent white genetically on avg. With the majority of those folks having a white male great great grand parent.

If anything Kap should be applauded for proving a QB like Cam can get to a Super Bowl. Imagine if he wins it, he'd be the first black QB to win a Super Bowl since Doug Williams over 25 years ago. I'm happy for Colin and hope he plays well although I got Baltimore winning it.
[/quote]Wait.... What Kaep. is black? The last time I looked. He look like he has some Indian in him or part mexican. But black he is not. He has a tan look to his skin. That is it.

Just so you know, Mexican is not a race. It's a country. Lol.

Black people encompass the whole range of colors and facial features. They're black people in Africa, who have never seen a white person in their life (except Anthropologist, Geneticist and other scientist), who are light/of light complexion, with Chinese eyes and straight noses, who scientist say are the oldest living people on earth (such as in Southern and Central, East Africa). So what you're saying doesn't mean much.

Saying all that: Kaepernick has a black and a white parent. And this is the reason why he was called black by some huddler's. I would call him mixed or a mulatto type myself (unless he has wooly hair, which is hard to tell, cause he keeps it cut so low). But then again, anthropologist would say he has a tropical limb build/skeleton and classify his as black. Nonetheless, there are black people with two black parents that can be of lighter complexion. Just as a black parent and a white parent can still produce a black child (phenotypically), even if their genotype is mixed.

It's not always as simple as you make it. And for the record, Native Americans (I think you called them Indians), can range in complexion as well. However, the one's from Mexico are usually much darker (and shorter for that matter). Lol

Where is Kase Klosed? Kaepernick pledged Kappa Psi fraternity in college. That tells me all I need to know of what he sees himself as.

Remember Tiger Woods saying on Oprah that he didn not want to just identify himself as just simply black because he saw it as disrespecting his mother's culture, is what got him in trouble with the black race and used against him by the white race when they were ready to tear him down.

Being Bi-racial in this country is just as complicated as being any other race outside of white...just saying.

Not if this team don't change their overall attitude. No matter what some of the Panthers fans want to believe.
