Here we go with the "your ancestors" trying to guilt me for things that happened 500 years ago. It's 2013, I was born in 1985. I have never seen, heard, or felt real racism so for me it's a dieing issue. I don't know what you mean by shortcomings because none of the groups I mentioned have shortcomings in the context of this thread. I just find it silly that the media make a big deal over "first woman kicker". This "boundary" has not existed for a long time, it's imagined. We could have had a woman kicker 10 or 20 years ago. We just haven't had anyone talented enough.
The same thing aggravates me about Cam, when people try to say he's paving the way for black QBs. He's not. Those roads where paved by guys like Warren Moon, Doug Williams, and Randall Cunningham. Cam came along at a time when it was very nice to be a black QB and some people sensationalize the race component.
I don't think you guys get it. It's 2013. These "boundaries" we are breaking are not boundaries. They are just situations of circumstance where a minority, woman, child, or homosexual has accomplished something that was open to them for years. This is not a Jackie Robinson situation.
"I have never seen, heard, or felt real racism so for me it's a dieing issue." You're either a funny or stupid white guy.
I don't think I care enough about you or the race you associate with to seek guilt from them. Like I said, you and the race you associate with aren't the be all end all on this planet. You and your race are just passerby like everyone else. This planet went on quite well before you and your race popped up not too long ago out of the Neander Valley in Germany. Now you think you're the 'giver' of opportunities or the gate keeper of 'barriers' to be broken just because your ancestors use mass genocide, slavery, unimaginable violence to intimate harmless, innocent people. Don't try disassociating yourself from your ancestors because you're benefiting from their 'great' work.
I don't wanna hear all this road paving bs in a league dominated by Afro Americans when white QBs are only successful because of very strong, athletic, black supporting cast. The heightening of the importance of the QB position is overly exaggerated because it's played by mostly whites is rather pathetic and reaching an embarrassing level. Overpaying QBs to prove their athleticism, that's low. Oh well, I am not white so I'm comfortable in my skin. Looking at Fluko's face on his interview on ESPN, you can tell that ass-wipe know he didn't deserve his contract when Boldin is exposing his ribcage on every crappy pass he threw.
