Default Re: What if Big Ben was black?

Perhaps he is?lol

Emmitt Smith just found out he some whitey in him, and his great great grandaddy was his familiies slave owner.
Now Micheal Irvin wants to know if he is white too. Of course Irvin think he might be able to get away with more if he is.

The bottom line is, if your guilty your guilty, if your not your not. Everyone in this country judges very quickly anymore, and the press and the internet bs doesn't help. BB doesn't hang with a posse like Vick and iverson, doesn't appear to have been packing a loaded weapon(gun that is,lol). Everyone handle themselves differently, some have the persona of being guilty, regardless of race/color or alien stature. AKA thug like.

Wow this string went from what if BB was black, to BB being a chinese alien, to running mcnabb out of town, to riding on a motorcylce without a permit. Talk about a group needing some ritalin, lol After 10 posts no less.
J/K Don't get your thongs all bunched up now.

I don't know maybe we should ask Donte Stallworth what he thinks about if Ben were Black.

Well, the closest analogy is Kobe and the DNA evidence saved him.

I think race does have something to do with the way some players are portrayed. Favre has always been treated like a golden boy, yet he's had all sorts of off-field problems including drug addiction. You look at guys like TO and Chad Johnson who's only crime is being an arrogant, prick and they get the same bad press as Lawrence Phillips.

Haven't we all worked with jerkwad employees, but we have the ability to handle it. Who cares about personality?
