Super Bowl 50: Media’s hyped-up racism claims don’t stand up to scrutiny

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

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.

Yannie Gordo Steele, are you disputing anything in the story? Please elaborate.

Apparently Yannie Gordo Steele, you are incapable of seeing the picture of the rebel staff.
Are you white?

Years ago I met the Cleveland Browns in Palo Alto Ca. The Blacks all sat together at pool side. Jimmy Brown included. Races sat separately and I’m told nothing has changed. Blacks are far more racist than Whites. I never let being called a racist bother me. You saw racism in Sanford Florida, Baltimore etc. We have to fight back against Mob rule period.

Seems to me there are more blacks than whites in football



But The white man must be blamed for something

Give me a minute

I will come up with something (sarc)

The starting quarterback is the face and leader of the franchise. People expect their leader to mature and conduct themselves with dignity professionalism. Most people don’t like Cam Newton because he’s a total jackass.

Football! You bet!

now it is socially accepted that all whites are racist and no-one else.
in the real world, if a latino gets called a ‘beaner’ and doesn’t run away crying, he is accepted into the group-think.
if he returns the remark with ‘pot-head cracker’ or some other derogatory remark, he gets respect.
and the game ends with a 1-1 tie.
I see it every day.

Like the Nazi’s spewing hatred toward Jews, Poles and Czechs, today’s Nazi’s are spewing hatred toward random targets and today it’s whites.

The media party calls this “political correct”. Let’s be clear about this:

It is just political race card balkinization to create an issue to get people fighting with each other!
Everybody is beginning to see it for the farce that it is and it is getting boring – whenever I played sports, the only people I dicriminated against was the opposing team – whether my team mate was of a different ethnic origin or not didn’t register – he had the same jersey as mine so our goal was in the same direction! How stupidly these media want to create discrimination in people’s minds! Best is just ignore it, hopefully they’ll stop making a fool of themselves’! Just dumb!

Quite frankly I no longer care – the word racism means nothing any more and I am the first person to say that when someone uses it on me.

I respond with “I am a realist”

To me this shows how shallow the media are. Here is a sports extravaganza event, and maybe instead of manufacturing a story about anything and trying to create strife over it; the media should look at the actual sports story. I know that is crazy talk, but the game itself has an awful lot to talk about. If the media wants to focus on personality, why not look at how a new super-star quarterback is challenging the old superstar quarterback for predominance in skills and leadership? Sort of like the basketball story of the late 80’s and early 90’s where Jordan superseded Johnson. Lots of good stuff to write about in the reality without adding the make believe.
