Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson says he has a competitive advantage over the league. That advantage?
Hes white.
Nelson feels that because of his race, opposing defenses have a tendency to dismiss him as unathletic and slow.

Brakos, can we get a "that's racist" gif in here?


Edit: Lol I had to quote this

“A lot of it has to do with the fact that guys look at him say, ‘OK, yeah, he’s the white guy, he can’t be that good,’” Jennings said. “Well, he is that good.”

I used to get that treatment back in college playing basketball at the gym or out at the playground. There would be times during 5-on-5 games where I'd be the only white player. Some guys would throw me the ball, others would be damned first. Of course, those that threw me the ball typically had played with me before and knew I could shoot; others just wouldn't throw me the ball because I was white, and you could tell that was the reason after playing with them off-and-on over the course of time. I've also been guilty of playing football and having to line-up opposite a female, so I tended to play off look for passing lanes to step into.

So guys have film on him and know what he can do and they still disrespect him because he's white?

That doesn't sound right. Well it definitely doesn't sound very smart.
