‘The Most Unapologetically Black’ Team Ever (?)

Barb Wire

I don’t pay much attention to sports anymore. It’s all so silly.

But it doesn’t get much sillier than this: the Huffington Post–or rather, one Erick Fernandez, a New York liberal who writes for HuffPo–celebrating the  Carolina Panthers as “the most unapologetically black” team in football history.

What does that mean?

Search me. I read the stupid article. It seemed to be about busting stereotypes by behaving in ways that Mr. Fernandez calls “black,” as opposed to “white.” The players he talks to seem rather more well-grounded than Mr. Fernandez himself.

He goes on and on and on about how he thinks black quarterbacks ought to act. He also gets excited about the Latino coach who knows how to get the most out of his black players.

I need some fresh air.

Is it just me, or are liberals pathologically hung up on this race thing? Can they see past someone’s skin color, or is that really all they ever see?

That’s really all they ever see.

It’s no wonder that such loopy people make such loopy public policies. May God protect us from them.
