    Re: Is Anthony Wright the first Black QB G-men ever had?



    [quote user="J FINN 20"]The thing that pisses me off the most about this is that how do these people have the right to call other people racists if they are racist themselves? And second (no doubt in my mind Imus was wrong) but as Rev. shouldn't you be willing to forgive people when they apologize that isn't very christian of them now is it.

    Yeah very true. I don't really consider them reverends. Anybody can go study the bible and get a degree and become a reverend, but to be a true "reverend" it takes more than that, and its in what you truley believe,

      [quote user="J FINN 20"]even if he he why is that such a big deal? I blame Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton for all the racial problems in this city
      [/quote]




      its so true. These guys work w/ the corrupt politicians in this country and try to make the black population feel as if race is still a major problem everywhere. (it is in some places in this country like KCbut pretty much the onlyreally importantracial predjudices come from the gov't and the police. which is another issue that has to be dealt with but...)They do this to tryto make blacksfeel like victims so thatthey'll focus on and believethier unfair treatmentinstead of just working hard, taking the ups with the downs, and slowly but surely becoming a economical force indispensible by the rest of the U.S. citizens. They do this to get the black vote and put Dem.party spin on it. These guys have made millions on bs scandals since the sixties. Al Sharpton became famous over a hoax look it up. Im not saying most or even a fraction ofour Afro American friends &neighborsbuy into these lies but that is what these guys (Sharpton, Jackson, Bush, etc) want this country to think. To control us and our votes. These guys arent racist, they want to screw us all equally. Imus isn't the enemy eitherthe enemy is the mediaand gov't who blow this up to serve their own plans of racial manipulation. Imus is a jerk but freedom of speech is more important, just call him a jerk he's embarrassed enough.But many towns and cities all around this country (not just the south) have racist police officers, politicians, and citizens who allow practices such as racial profiling, and the Patriot Act which allows law enforcment agencies to unconstitutionally tap your phones, violating the 5th amenment.They use terrorism as an excuse to further pursecute lower classes who very tragically may not have any other way to feed their family than sell drugs. That is scary and a thingALL PEOPLE should be very concerned with. Nazi Germany aint that far away if we keep giving up our freedoms for "protection". This country was founded to protect againstgov'ts like this one. Time to TAKE this country back. P.S. Im white and i live in a nice CT town and i cannot be considered a racist.

        just so people get where im comin from the black population in this country and especially New York and the bigger cities is with out question on the rise as far as economically, politically, and more than anything and more than any other other group, socially. This whole Imus thing and the way the media keeps pushing the whole race thing is an attempt to slow the progress of the black community by elitist power-spoiled biggots in powerful positions in the money-powernetwork of this nation. Such as Hilary Clinton and ****wad Cheyney

          it shouldn't be such a big deal if someone does mention race. We are all part of a race with millions of people who are part of that race. Im white and a jew(not practicing). There are a lot of whites andjews i hate and a blacks and chritians i love. And Vice Versa. It is a good question about A. Wright he just may be. it should not be a touchy subject in this country. Its all that politically correctness that keeps tension on the issue. Some people need to grow up, some people are fine, and some you never could take seriously anyway so who cares.

            [quote user="Flash"]Not starting anything up here,but I'm pretty sure he is.

            Ok, I am black and I would like to know the same. I see someone has answered that he is not, because we had one last year that did not make the cut. This is a good question, and it was asked in a manner that wouldn't offend myself or any other person. It wasjust out of curiosty, the author of this thread said from the rip that he was not trying to start anything up. Unfortunately, anything singling out a particular race will always start something up. Although it really doesn't matter who we have or have not had as a QB or anything else, it's just the nature of curiosty. Hell... I know a plethora of things that "don't really matter" (that might be a jeopardy question one day or a biggest fan question). Some things people just wanna know, I see nothing wrong with that. Good post Flash.

              This is what I call progression. I'm elated to have a black QB on my team. Maybe it seems trivial to some, but it's from those who dont understand that a "first" means something. 80 years as a franchise and we finally get a black QB. To me that says a lot about. Thanks Jerry. It's about time. Regardless, I feel a since of pride, even if it is just Anthony Wright. I'm very very very excited about this.




              People who try to say that race is a non-issue are pretty much living in a fantasy world.




              Oh, and on the Sharpton kick, it's all been blown out of proportion.Al Sharpton has no power. Jesse Jackson has no power. I didnt hear anything from either one of them about Imus. What I heard was all the other media talking about Imus and Sharpton. It's funny to me howthey say Sharpton got Imus fired. That's giving Al waaaaaay too much credit. Al and Jesse run their mouths all the time. No one ever cared before. Imus deserved to get fired.ANYONE making those comments wouldbe firedeven a black man. People who are mad at Al and Jesse and calling them hypocrits are just plain lost. And its funny how there are so many lost people out there.

                Because they just harp on something until it becomes an issue. Can you imagine if the Duke LaCrosse players had been black? All hell would break loose. But since they're white nobody seems to care that our justice system is a much bigger problem than what some guy said on the radio. If they hadn't had money they would be on their way to prison. Thanks to Sharpton and morons that actually give him credibility, free speech is well on it's way to being ancient history in this country.

                  Say what you want but it's the truth. I really can't figure out what you're trying to say with those comments. Change my way of thinking? Ok. Whatever. I have trouble taking someone serious who has 420 in their sig. Maybe the pot is distorting your way of thinking.

                    What an idiotic tangent. Really, were you gearing up for a soapbox to bash Al Sharpton/Jackson/racial radicals? Did you need a reason to vent your anger towards them? That's great, go to a political MB, your diatribes are not needed here.


                    I think the fact that Wright is a black QB means little to nothing for the Giants. He'll be nearly invisible to them, so it's not like he's being featured in a leading role.

                            josh harris (black qb from training camp last year) didnt make the team so Wright might be the first one to make the team.

                            Onto Imus... in a media class we spoke about it and I said that Imus has made anti-semitic and anti-Christian remarks before and nothing was made of it but once he said something about black women this whole thing happened and he got fired. Then a black girl said in response "saying 'nappy-headed hoes' is much worse than anything he's said in the past."

                            If that is true, then why is nothing made of rappers' lyrics. For instance, Ludacris: "Youza hooooo, youza hoooooo.... I got hoes in different area codes..." Or "move, *****, get out the way..." That is fine and dandy to listen to, but if a white guy says "hoes" he gets fired? Where is the rational in that. The same outraged blacks who think Imus should have been fired have Ludacris and 50 cent and 3 6 mafia on their iPods.

                              I think people just need to grow up and realize that we're all the
                              same. Honestly...who cares if he's the first black quarterback? I feel
                              like the way everyone gets all excited when the first black guy does
                              something does nothing but perpetuate the separation of the races. If
                              we're all supposed to be equal, which i believe we are, I don't see why
                              it matters at all. Decades ago it mattered. Jackie Robinson mattered.
                              Now, though, I don't understand why its news. Doesn't saying "so and so
                              is the first black whatever" just make it seem like black people are
                              different and should be treated as such? Consider everyone a person. Your race should neither be a
                              positive nor negative factor in anything. Maybe this is all a bit
                              idealistic but I really think that if people stopped making the
                              distinctions we would be a lot better off.

                                its true but even nowadays sportscenter would make note if the first black person ever did _____. Or hispanic or white also.
