Default Position and Race?

This is in no way meant to be an offensive post. I want to first say I voted for Barrack Obama twice, and I do not make racial stereotypes these are just very obvious observations that everyone notices. Although it doesn't matter the recent injury to Big Ben and replacement by Bryon Leftwich and comparisons between rg3 and cam newton made me think about african american quarterbacks and how there are fewer by percentage at the quarterback and kicker position and more in the wide receiver and running back type positions. Even almost every african american quarterback is also known as a good rushing quarterback, especially while they are young (rg3 newton, mcnabb, vick) The best quarterbacks always seem to be white (brady,rogers,brees,manning,Ben) they on average tend to be more accurate passers and have longer careers. Also notice in baseball the extreme shortage of African American pitchers (dark skinned players with the last name "ruiz" 'soriano""rivera" are latino not african. C.C Sabathia I think is the only actual black pitcher.) Can everyone just admit that Blacks are faster and can jump better than whites and whites can throw and kick better than blacks IN GENERAL. (where are all the asian football players?) Keep it civil I really want some other perspectives on this.

I wouldn't touch this post with a ten foot poll. I will say it now makes sense, you on percocet and klonopin voting for Obama. I always say you must be on drugs to vote for Obama and in this case I was right.

Steve McNair was one of the best all-round qb's I've ever seen. If he had stayed healthy and played longer his name would come up more. Warren Moon was a great passing qb as well. Vick had a hell of an arm, he just was also phenomenal at running and relied on it more than other qbs.

I've always thought that black people probably weren't given as many opportunities to play qb like they weren't given many chances to be head coaches, but I have nothing to really base that off of.

I know there are exceptions, but in general I am correct.

No, I voted for Obama because he wasn't John McCain, who would have nuked the entire middle east had he been elected. Then I voted for Obama because he isn't Mitt Romney who is the most fake ass cracker I have ever seen in my entire life. Not to mention his foreign policy has some parts of the world considering not murdering us when we go on vacation now. Also not to mention slow but steady job growth. Klonopin and Percocet have nothing to do with this. I'm not high (on klonopin or percocet).
