Super Bowl L begins shortly and I would be remiss if I didn't mention Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton's recent comments about being an African-American quarterback "might scare some people because my skill set isn't like anybody else."
Needless to say it's rubbish. Last I checked Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is African-American and doesn't scare anyone. What turns people off about Newton isn't his color, it's his character. It isn't his blackness, it's his brashness. Chicago Bears legend Richard Dent wants to knock Newton's ass out of the game. And in case you didn't know Dent is black.
