That might have changed since a billion years ago when I was growing up, but to me it just looks like Incognito is a jerk, but his team mates are sticking by him because that's what you do.The prevailing attitude is "The guy's an a-hole, but he's OUR a-hole."
In August of my son's Sr year playing HS football, two best friends were riding together in a car - one white (although he was a ginger) and one black. These guys were inseparable prior to the following incident. The white guy was driving and they were joking around, he used the n word. The black guy punched him and broke his jaw. Which reinforces the idea that it is NOT ok for a white guy to drop the n bomb. Ruined both of their Senior years. One guy couldn't play due to injury and the other had to transfer to another school as a condition of not being charged with assault.
