What's up everyone. We are doing a contest with T.I. and we are giving away $1200 a day for the next 10 days. Just wanted to give you all a heads up.
Ever notice black athletes are only compared to other black athletes
and white players are only compared to white players
Like lets say there is some black undersized receiver who is fast and very athletic, the announcer will almost alwasy compare that receiver to Steve Smith, but if its a small, quick white receiver they are compared to Wes Welker.
for instance. If you do a google search for "The next steve smith" the results point towards Desean Jackson of the Eagles, a black dude. But if you google "the next wes welker" then the first result is for some white dude in high school, with quotes like, "Campanaro says he'll most likely play offense in college. "Campanaro says he'll most likely play offense in college. "A lot of coaches are telling me that I'm the next Wes Welker and they see me playing the inside slot position."
This is a thread I made a long time ago, and naturally it got locked, but but i recently read an article by someone from SI who shares this sentiment
🤬 , even superstar white running back Toby Gerhart and Safety John Lynch believe the same thing
“I was talking with [longtime NFL safety] John Lynch, and joking around that he was in the same situation as a safety,” Gerhart said. “We’re often only compared to other quote-unquote white guys that play our position. … I’m color blind. I’m a running back. I’d compare myself to the running styles of Eddie George and Corey Dillon.”
