    Is the white CB gone for good?

    [size=12pt]Is the white CB gone for good? [/size]

    STORY TOOLS:













    A week removed from Donovan McNabb's remarks about black quarterbacks, the nation prepares for another weekend of pro football, a game segregated by position.

    For the sake of argument, consider the rule, and not the exception. Kickers and punters are white. Running backs (excluding the "throwback" blocking types) are black. Receivers are mostly black. Quarterbacks, as McNabb noted, remain predominantly white.
    Still, a single black quarterback would be one more than the number of starting white cornerbacks.

    "I may have been the last," says Jason Sehorn, who retired four years ago.

    The last ever, he means. Sehorn, whose nickname among the Giants was "Species," now wonders if white cornerbacks are themselves extinct.

    "Like the dinosaur," he says.

    Then again, if in fact the white cornerback is a dead species, it wouldn't bother Sehorn too much. It is not, at least in his mind, a civil rights question.

    "Being the last doesn't mean anything," he says. "It's not like being the first. It's not like I was a pioneer."

    White, black, rainbow... who cares?

    I know this isn't your thread -- You're just reprinting something. But you don't know how much I hate this kind of stuff. It's articles like this that keep us apart and continues the infighting between blacks and whites. It's just plain stupid for this writer to even bring it up.

    If you have the talent it doesn't matter if you're black or white.

    For sure RK, guess the writer knows this will stir up some folk and get his article read .... can't say it could be classed as decent journalism though
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    I agree, people should just stop focusing on it. Everyone.

    Except of course for the rainbow QBs, they take a lot of shit out there.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Are white kids slower than black kids?
    If so, why?
    If not, then why aren't white kids being turned into cornerbacks?


    Those are all legitimate questions, Cojo, whether or not you like it.

    I can see the point he is trying to make, but the point missed is that the black QB controversy is in the ability of the black QB being overlooked by predominantly white coaches and GMs.
    The day that black coaches and black GMs are over looking
    the white CBs, then we have an issue.
    This article is about 15 years too early.
    LOL!

    The black QB issue has always been about stereotype, not ability.

    Probably stereotype!

    Why aren't midwest kids recruited more for the bigger schools?

    Why?
    Why?
    Why?

    There are many questions to ask.
    No real good answers.
