Robert Griffin III refuses to be defined by race | Cincinnati.com | cincinnati.com


I know one thing for sure. If Andrew Luck had 24 TD's and 4 Int's they would call him the greatest player in the last ten years and a hall of famer.

It's a shame people only like to compare players of the same race. Even analysts. Why can't be compared to Steve Young?

bruh, when it comes to race. The NFL is in last place.

U think Troy Smith wouldve been a starter and sucked for like 10 years like Alex Smith?

Race is still a problem in the NFL and it starts with the owners, who majority are white and old, and still feel a type of way against blacks.

u can be good as gold as a black quarterback but you will be moved to another position. Thats why I hope Adrian Peterson gets MVP.

"I am an African-American in America. That will never change. But I don't have to be defined by that.''


"I am aware how much race is relevant to (black Redskins fans who are proud of his success),'' RGIII said. "I don't ignore it. I try not to be defined by it. But I understand different persectives and how people view different things. I understand that they're excited that their quarterback is an African-American. I play with a lot of pride, a lot of character, a lot of heart. I understand that. I appreciate them for being fans and not just fans because they're African-Americans.''


"We always try to find similarities in life, no matter what it is so they're always going to try to put you in a box with other African-American quarterbacks -- (Michael) Vick, (Cam) Newton, Randall Cunningham, Warren Moon,'' Griffin said. "Warren Moon and Doug Williams really didn't run that much. That's the negative stereotype when it comes to African-American quarterbacks, that most of us just run. Those guys threw it around. I like to think I can throw it around a little bit.

"That's the goal. Just to go out and not try to prove anybody wrong but just let your talents speak for themselves.''

Shad Khan, Jaguars owner, first minority owner in the league, self made millionaire. Came to America and stayed at the local YMCA. Worked for a car parts company in which he later owned and expanded world wide into a multi-million dollar empire that now supplies 80% of car bumpers to every make and model. Think about that...

RGIII is a smart kid. A good kid. Best of love and all greatness to him. I think Steve Young is a great comparison with him actually.

IMO, Geno Smith is a lot like Ken Anderson. A white QB, who was looked over in the draft, and went on to take the Bengals to the Super Bowl only to lose on a late drive by the gawd Joe Montana and Jerry Rice. Lots of people forget about Anderson, but he was a fu*king stud.

This same comparison bias happens with white players who aren't QBs. Bjoern Werner will get compared to Jarred Allen and Chris Long this upcoming draft. Which isn't a bad thing because those players are studs too, but still, it's because they're white. Same goes for the NBA and white players being compared to Bird, Marinovich, etc.

Humans only understand things on the basis of duality. It's the way our minds work. We compare always. It's the psychological phenomenon we experience when trying to understand things.

to be fair it's largely a position thing. white runningbacks are always compared because there are so few, the same as black qbs. Peyton hillis was never given a shot and traded for Brady fu*kin Quinn in his breakout year. jordy nelson, etc. RgIII will actually benefit from the recent increase in black qbs. he came in at a time where he's not an anomaly but a new breed

that should be his mentality. it's not a racial pride issue it's a progress issue. when the day comes you see a black qb and pay no mind to his color that's when we arrived. nobody pays any mind to a white qbs color

You got to ask them Redskin fans about that....I honestly hope he does good for the Redskins and as a BLACK qb....I get tired of people always saying a BLACK QB can't win a Super Bowl...I hear the bullsh*t about Cam from white folks all the time at work...Like Sunday I say "What about Cam Newton 2 passing TDs and 1 rushing" "Oh he a ball hog"....WTF HE THREW 2 TDs....."But he still has a losing record"...Dudes can't be happy for.Cam and by the way RG3 playing this year if he doesn't come back next year and exceed this season folks going to be calling him a bust...just because...and people ignore the fact that Andrew Luck has had a WEAK schedule this year...they was already predicting he could get these many wins before the season from the weakness
