First, it's speculative, he hasn't really lost anything. Second, he will assuredly be drafted, and if he does well in the League, he'll make a lot of people look dumb. Third, stereotypes are bad, no joke. Black people are "explosive" while white people have "intangibles," a.k.a. they're smarter. Woe to the white male athlete, I guess. Such injustice.
