Today ESPN is reporting:
He wrote that McNabb’s tendency to run the ball early in his career “not only confused defenses, it also thrilled Eagles fans,” but that abandoning that element “by claiming that ‘everybody expects black quarterbacks to scramble’ not only amounts to a breach of faith but also belittles the real struggles of black athletes who’ve had to overcome real racial stereotypcasting in addition to downright segregation.”
Mondesire said the bottom line is that McNabb is “not that good.” “In essence Donny, you are mediocre at best,” Mondesire wrote. “And trying to disguise that fact behind some concocted reasoning that African American quarterbacks who can scramble and who can run the ball are somehow lesser field generals … is more insulting off the field than on.”
Unless I am wrong, didn’t Rush Limbaugh get crucified by the media for insinuating that Donovan McNabb was not as good as advertised? And wasn’t it the NAACP and other race-baiting organizations that lead the charge to have Rush taken off the air for his comments? Well the hypocracy is not losst on McNabb.
McNabb, who endured Rush Limbaugh’s comments just a few years earlier, was baffled by Mondesire’s remarks.
“Especially being the same color I am,” McNabb told the Philadelphia Inquirer. “Obviously if it’s someone else who is not African American, it’s racism. But when someone of the same race talks about you because you’re selling out because you’re not running the ball, it goes back to: What are we really talking about here?
“If you talk about my play, that’s one thing. When you talk about my race, now we’ve got problems. If you’re trying to make a name off my name, again, I hope your closet is clean because something is going to come out about you … I always thought the NAACP supported African Americans and didn’t talk bad about them. Now you learn a little bit more.”
Welcome to the real world Donovan! And don’t be surprised if some rap artist accuses you of not liking Black people.
