Russell Wilson is a great guy... does a lot of charity work (Seattle Children's Hospital among others) and is a great role model.

You know something though... I've never once thought of him as a great black person or the top black QB in the NFL.

BTW, I'm white. Maybe it's just me...
Kees, why must you do this to me? this is two times in a row I've have to agree with you. What is this world coming to?? I might yet have to start liking you...

You know the thought never even crossed my mind until I read this thread.. To be fair though, i don't think he was playing the race card, merely pointing out something that most of us have began to overlook.. or look past or not even notice!

Kees, you're better than that. What if the Searoids manage to make the playoffs next year & face the Falcons again? Who are you going to root for?

Yes, that's true. I meant second black QB or second black man at the QB position.

I think it's worth noting anytime a black person earns such an achievement in this society. So much negative news is emphasized about black men, it's great to acknowledge what Wilson did here. It's a milestone, like the first black POTUS. Only racists view this acknowledgement as "playing the race card", so bothered by black achievements which shatter their notion that blacks are inferior. I'm not saying you're a racist.

Great achievement to see a black man orchestrate his team to the pinnacle. The Seahawks are a great team this season in this regard, and I enjoyed watching them play this year.
