    There are those who believe a white man winning a Super Bowl during Black History Month is absolutely racist.

    So, what is to be done since Tom Brady, a white man, actually won a super bowl during Black history month.  How do we end such blatant racism?  No white quarterbacks can play in Super Bowls played during February?  If the white quarterback wins the game, it is automatically changed to the team with a black quarterback, even if they didn't get in the Super Bowl?  How does this get corrected?

    "Brady is no stranger to criticism, of course. Last week, Nancy Armour attacked him in USA Today for not only being white, but for his apparent support for Donald Trump. Now, Twitter users are calling his victory over Patrick Mahomes “racist” … because it happened during Black History Month."

      WOW! I read the tweets... I think you must look at the source's those that would post such nonsense are pretty much walking around with few brain cells. I don't care if one is black or white. What were they thinking or basing their tweets on? Most just sharing they felt due to Brady being white he should not win the Super Boul --- Hey, he is not black he should not win...

      More right wing media nonsense, Mike?

      It is a completely inane proposition, who in their right mind is going to take this seriously?

        Cred, it was in a left wing newspaper (USA Today) and has been picked up by many left wing news sites.  There is nothing "Right Wing" about it.  Nancy Armour has quite a following.  Did you read the tweets?  They are just some of thousands voicing support for it being racist for Tom Brady, a white man, to win a Super Bowl during black history month. 

        It speaks to how ridiculous the left is and calls everything that doesn't go their way "Racist."   I have a black friend who has been called a racist because he supports President Donald Trump.  He's had white, liberal woman lecture him about the plight of black America.  When he argues with her and tells her about his history, she tell him he just doesn't understand what it's like to be black in America...because...get this...he's wealthy.

        So, this is just one example of many where the left has left the realm of reality.

            So, now the left thinks racism is something to make jokes about?  Is that what you're telling me?  It is something the left finds funny?

          Geez, Mike, how do we get tangled into all of this? I don't follow sports a great deal, generally. But, Tom Brady's political affiliations should have nothing to do with his excellence on the football field. What does Black History Month have to do with any of this?

          As a lefty, that is not something that I am going to get ruffled about. I not going to support "small" thinking from either side of the political spectrum.
          If Tom was the best, he is the best and that is more than possible without his being denigrated for it.

          I am for equal evaluation and treatment for all within any area of endeavor, I can only presume that the winners won fair and square. We are talking about football, not an ethnic studies course.

            Cred, I agree with you.  It is an example how some people will use the concept of "Racism" is ways it was not meant to be used.  They seriously damage real racism when they do and say such things.

        Yes, that's not what Armour said.

          The article you provided is from February 2, the Super Bowl was played on February 7.

            Yes. The one from the quote you used to support your silly thread. smile

              The quote I provided for my silly thread occurred after the Super Bowl, so it couldn't have been from the article you provided.  On February 2, Tom Brady had won nothing.

                You quoted that. And again mentioned Nancy Armour to Cred to make your argument.

                Nevermind, I broke my own rule. Should've known better.

          Regardless, of what I told Mike, your link was right on in the general principle regarding race relations, where whites have the privilege of being allowed in their associations and explanations to be individuals, or as it was well stated, being given the benefit of the doubt.  While for example, Obama just knowing Rev. Wright made him an America hater by mere association with his name. Yet, Trump openly provided support and tacit encouragement to rightwing oriented White supremacists here and have communicated with the British version of the KKK openly.  But all of that was considered just incidental by the Right, as the obvious reality of this behavior's conclusions are to be ignored.  It is just another one of the subtle nuances that is the reality of race relations here.

        Sorry to bring this up, but this subject trended on Twitter.  Could be looked at reverse discrimination. Just saying. I write these tweets off as an individual's opinion. Everyone has a right to offer up an opinion.

          No apologies necessary. While, I very well aware of the problems associated with and underlying these events, I do not seek to stir up a hornets nest, needlessly.

            I think you are on to something... We don't need to stir the pot. Yet some did use Brady unnecessarily, it does make one wonder why this could even be seen by some as racism.  Just made no sense. We need to stop this kind of rhetoric, it will lead to more systemic racism, not less. Pushing so hard only makes the other side push back. Hence the violence we are seeing today. The hate must stop, it is becoming uncontrollable. We can all stop hate in its tracks. I am blunt but I respect your intelligence, and I know or I hope you realize that.

    The question you have raised has the answer. Racism and the color bar have not gone from America and I don't think it will. there are many who are talking of the end of racism that has come with the arrival of Joe Biden. Nothing like that is going to happen, on the contrary, Joe Biden is dividing America even more.

    To be upset because Tom Brady, a white man, won a Super Bowl during Black history month is a bit out there.  This confirms my belief that the left lives to hate and play victim, whether it makes sense or not.  Here is another example.

    "L.A. columnist in 'anguish' after Trump supporters plow her driveway in snowstorm

    A Los Angeles Times columnist is in "anguish" after her neighbors plowed her driveway open during a snowstorm.

    It's because they are Trump supporters.

    The Times' Virginia Heffernan pointed out that even members of Hezbollah do nice things now and then, as did Nazis.

    Constitutional expert Jonathan Turley of George Washington University noted on his website that Heffernan "explores her struggle with how to respond while comparing all Trump supporters to Nazis and Hezbollah."

    "It is unfortunately hardly surprising to see such unhinged hateful comparisons in today’s age of rage. What was surprising is need to publish such a column containing gratuitous attacks on over 70 million voters as compared to genocidal murders or terrorists," he wrote.

    "While most of us would find a thank you as natural and immediate, Heffernan explores her struggle in decision how to respond: 'Of course, on some level, I realize I owe them thanks — and, man, it really looks like the guy back-dragged the driveway like a pro — but how much thanks? These neighbors are staunch partisans.'"

    This columnist fails to realize there are people who are mature enough to look past politics and see someone as just a person.  I wonder if there are such people on the left?

      First I think we need to put a face to the name...
      Her attitude is not to be unexpected We have watched this form of belligerence for some years now, for those that feel they just have the right to be rude, and say whatever comes into their head. Unless you have lived under a rock for four years you realize this to be a fact. It is obvious this type of human being is one you would want to look past, and learn to ignore. She is her own worst enemy, she needs only to stop and consider her words, live with her words. You or I do not have to even consider her words, and should not. She needs to take a long look at herself in a mirror, her bitter attitude is very evident in her face.  A picture speaks a thousand words.
