Ok I am not trying to be that guy...BUT in today's society this is debated all day long, just look at ESPN First Take.

Reason is Watt is white and you don't see many white athletes dominate at any other position than QB. Conversely the the same type of thing happens at the QB position where black QBs are labeled as runners first. Just witness all the Cam Newton, etc. talk that got Warren Moon extremely pissed off.

Watt being white and leading the league in sacks is what gets all the publicity. Let's face it, it's not like Houston is an attention grabbing market...
