Isome: Do you get paid by someone to do what you do? Do you see any particular benefit that is translated to the people that you are concerned about based on what you do? How much money do you figure that SENATOR Robert KKK Byrd has received from these same companies? You see if you were OBJECTIVE (and we all know the deal) you would inspect the donations to Byrd as well. You would also attempt to place this ONE INCIDENT into the CONTEXT of the general condition of safety of the industry.

The Rev. Gregory Daniels is a baffling idiot. His statement sounds almost as preverse as the actions of the NAACP who in 1977 defended the KKK in Dayton, OH while irrantly proclaiming that every American deserved a fair chance... IMHO most of these Rev Chicken Wing, Pastor Pork Chop types make me sick with their twisted rhetoric. They mislead the congregations who cling to their every word while adhering to a flair of un-sense of history. Amazing.

I have already dismissed the notion that the reason they dont play football is due to them being physically weaker than black or white players since it crosses into Bell Curve territory.
