Super Bowl week is known for its media frenzy, but this year, the national media has exploded with claims that all criticism of Carolina quarterback Cam Newton is racist because white America still has a racism problem.
(Not because Newton is young, brash, arrogant and rubs people the wrong way or anything.)
The problem with that is when we look at examples of other quarterbacks like Russell Wilson or Johny Manziel, the "racism" theory doesn't add up. Manziel is arguably more arrogant, brash and has found himself in trouble much more often.
The media criticism in that case was deserved, but nobody would ever suggest anyone was being anti-white.
Or take Wilson, a devout Christian and about as humble as they come.
Well, once upon a time the media ran stories suggesting people feel he isn't black enough, whatever that means.
