Stupid thing to say, but I don't think he intended it to be racist.

 

Make it the other way around and have him say that he'd never recruit a black QB and literally EVERYONE under the sun would be screaming racism and for good reason.  Why the double standard?

 

Sure would suck to be a white QB growing up dreaming of playing for OU only to have this jack wagon deny you an opportunity because of the color of your skin.

So let me get this straight

 

people questioned whether Cam was worth the #1 overall pick because he came from a goofy offense, only had 1 year of starting experience, ect = must be racist, you hate all black people you just won't come out and say it

 

outright saying you'll never recruit a white quarterback = nah, not racist

Can you imagine if this was the other way around? My god he wouldnt have a job today.

It's never right to insult a person or group for no reason. But this society is centered on people who revels in it. No one ever seem to notice that there aren't many white RBs and CBs, but for some reason we were bombarded with the fact there weren't many black QBs years back. Some people are just malicious for no reason. Nobody seemed to care there aren't many Mexicans, Indian, Asians, or Marsians playing QB, yet it mattered there weren't many blacks. People are just obsessed with the bronze skin, I guess. It is beautiful, I have to admit. :)

It was an off the cuff dumb remark by a old man that's not even in the game.

Clearly this means all the people who didn't want to draft Cam Newton were in fact not racists.

How can he be racist if he's white himself?

Never ascribe to racism what can be explained by stupidity.

He didn't mean he would never recruit a white quarterback, he would if both of his parents were black. It has nothing to do with race.
