    Does anyone know off the top of their head any white guys besides Jason Sehorn who started at CB in recent NFL history? Trivia question for a friend.

    No... Not recent history. I think you would have to go all the way back to Roger Wehrli.

    Sehorn was a CB for the Giants for a while then moved to safety for the Rams.

    sounds like we need to force the league to draft and sign more white corners.

    Methinks this is absurd. I read that site posted earlier, and they make some great points. The racial disparity in the NFL and NBA is ridiculous, yet all the media talks about is how few black quarterbacks and coaches there are. I'm pissed!

    Sorry for hating the fact that the media jumps on how racist white owners and college athletic directors are for not having more black coaches and quarterbacks but God forbid I say anything about there not being enough white players in general. You're right. :gun:

    Hell, if the whole roster was 3-footed purple freaky people, I wouldn't care as long as they won....





    *DISCLAIMER*

    This in no way was meant to be derogatory towards three-footed people with purple colored skin or even a purlish hue......

    I totally agree Bill. My only issue is the amount of media coverage given to the lack of black quarterbacks and coaches but none is given to this issue or the issue of whites in the NBA.

    Personally, I want to live in colorblind society. I support the black athlete as long as he is the best player at the position. As long as my team wins, I don't care what color it is.

    My point is black people say they want a colorblind society but at every opportunity mention the issue of race...

    Fortunately, I'm a 4-footed purple freaky people, otherwise, you would be in deep doo-doo

    I hear you... It was an attempt at levity, because this thread could wind up in the NSZ quicker than you can say 'Stretch' Suba three times fast.

    Dammit..... I'm suing my attorney's. They assured me that the disclaimer would work...

    There are few white athletes in general. Sad but true. If you expect the politically correct media to help end racial disparity in the NFL, you're sadly mistaken. As far as the modern American media is concerned, there is no such thing as discrimination against whites. That's why any black comedian can call white people "honkies" or "crackers" with no fear of backlash. Yet when Michael Richards...well, you get my point. It's just a part of life at this point.
