Default Warren Moon thinks those who criticize Cam Newton are of course, Racist

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/story/1...-toward-newton



"A lot of the criticism hes receiving is unfortunate and racially based, Moon told Freeman. I thought we were all past this. I dont see other quarterbacks in the draft being criticized by the media or fans about their smile or called a phony. Hes being held to different standards from white quarterbacks. I thought we were past all this stuff about African-American quarterbacks, but I guess were not"

Enablers such a Footstepsfrom27 agree fully with this assertion no doubt....

Not quite. He did not get into the NFL because he refused to play anything other than QB while coincidentally being black. Good career regardless.

Nolan Nawrocki of Pro Football Weekly.

Nawrocki responded to Moons argument on Thursdays PFT Live.

I think its absurd, Nawrocki said. I mean, anybody that is familiar with the publication, you can go back and look at what was said about [Notre Dame quarterback] Jimmy Clausen. It was some of the same things. He came across as very scripted and disingenuous in interviews. . . . We treat every player the same. Were just trying to get to the end result. . . . Evaluate the character and get the evaluation right. I think the best evaluators in the NFL are colorblind in their assessments, and we treat it the same way. Were not trying to take shots at anybody. Its all about getting the evaluations right.

O yea cause people just can't have a opinion on something without race being a part of it...

People need to get over race , they all suck equally.
Being adopted and knowing nothing about what race I am lets me hate them all equally as well ...

But race is stupid , It's not like you pick it , and I find it hard to hate anyone for something that was just dumb luck , as in what race you was born.
It's would be like hating someone because they had blue eyes or brown hair.


We as a people should stop being proud of race and stop making opinions because of it. Be proud of a loved one , or a achievement and hate because of a action someone takes. But to do either because of something random that no one can control is just stupid.


Race is stupid ,overrated and unimportant.

I agree it SHOULDNT play a factor in any decision making or perception of another human being, but youre out of your mind if you think people don't skew view due to race. I have zero doubt we'd look at Newton differently if he were white.

Racism as an embedded institutional problem in this country interests me at the highest level. Warren Moon's personal view of the Cam Newton thing is of little to no interest to me, and your transparent attempts to bait me are of even less interest.

Default Moon has every right to be skeptical based on what he went through.

Nevertheless, he's out to lunch on this one.

This is absurd. People who criticize Cam Newton aren't racist. Racists are white people who criticize Obama.

His smile, really? No one criticizes Cam Newton for anything other than the fact that you can't rely on pure athleticism in the NFL and the system he comes out of isn't conducive to being a success.

If Michael Vick can't rely on pure athleticism then no one can. Vick is finally on his way to becoming a real threat, but it took a lot of humility for it to happen. If Newton wants to be successful, he needs to have a good, long chat with Vick.
