We'll see. Go Steelers.
I see an issue with you, Ike's fine.

so if a player is referred to as being "lazy, a slacker, or sulking" that means he is of a certain racial ethnicity?

it must be white then since Ben has been referred to as being lazy and a slacker and not studying film enough and sulking because his buddy Bruce Arians was fired...

actually the lazy slacker thing does have undertones of being racist, but I don't think it is in this case. It seems like a coincidence that the posters are using the word lazy to describe a black man.

I also find it absolutely ridiculous that somebody might try and describe Ike as lazy.

Ike's one of the hardest workers you'll find, few players work as hard as he does in the off-season.

You're assuming an awfiul lot by saying those three words alone carry racist undertones.

I don't think those adjectives are owned by only one ethnic group, be it white, black, tan...........etc..........

I hear people refer to black people as lazy all the time in order to justify their racist ideas. I agree that the people calling Ike lazy weren't doing so with any racial hatred, but sometimes it's hard to say

EDIT: What makes it so hard to understand is that Ike is a workout warrior. Not sure where the lazy thing comes from.

I agree, Hawaiians are often referred to as being lazy and slackers so I don't see how those words only refer to one particular skin color.
