On the eve of the 2021 NFL Draft, woke websites like ESPN still want us to believe that race plays a factor in which quarterbacks are taken in the draft.
On Tuesday, ESPN’s Martenzie Johnson wrote a piece titled, “Justin Fields And The Double Standard Of Black Quarterback Prospects.”
Instead of discussing the nuances of the draft process, ESPN took the easy way out — they played the race card.
“When it comes to black quarterbacks in particular,” Johnson writes, “the NFL has long gone out of its way to keep the position as white as the painted yard lines on the field.”
To kickoff the 2020 NFL season, there were a record 10 black quarterbacks to start behind center. It’s a far cry from the days in which black quarterbacks were rarely chosen to play the position. The NFL — and America — has come a long way, but according to ESPN, black quarterbacks still face an uphill battle.
