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

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.

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.

Which part it the double standard? You know he's white, right? Maybe Switzer has been following the Teb0w and Manziel coverage the last few years and got tired of how far they try to promote them as super athletes. Manziel at 5'11 205 ran a 4.68 and they're talking about him as some new evolution when in the same combine a guy name Clowney at 6'6 266 ran a 4.53 yet treated as just ordinary. Switzer who's been around freak athletes all his life probably got mad and just wanted to say something. Not saying what he said is right but people don't like being sold the wrong thing. Most people know Manziel will not make it in the league but the support for him is overwhelming.

Of course that kind of statement is racist and prejudicial.  Painting all white quarterbacks with the same broad brush is just as bad as what folks have done with black quarterbacks for decades.  Quarterbacks have to be judged on their own merits and skin color isn't one of them.  Looking at extremes and then trying to draw conclusions is the same fallacy no matter how it is applied.

I don't think this is racist.  Calling this racist is what keeps racism alive.  He likes to put in running QBs in his offense.  I know some white QBs can run well, but let's be honest, black people tend to have more lower leg strength and tend to run better, generally.   Just look at major sports.  There will be a few exceptions, but it is not coincidence that most running backs are black and the best ones, usually are also black.  Same with wide receivers and cornerbacks and other positions where running is huge.  I'm a white guy and I'm not silly enough to not realize that black people are, on average, going to be better runners.    There is also the theory that black people have higher twitch muscles leading to higher athleticism.  On the flip side, I've heard a lot of times white people are (generally) more suited for straight up strength instead of speed, like lineman, etc.  As always, there will be exceptions.   But watch the olympics, aren't most runners black and most swimmers white?  I only believe in coincidence to a point.   This is just genetics.  It's not racism, this is just who we are, and we should be proud that some of us are different, but in the end, we're all human.   I'm not going to knock someone for pointing out what he thinks is a fact based on evidence he's seen over the years.  If he was to come out and compare intelligence and personality traits, that would be racist though.
