[QUOTE]Good thing Mankins is white and doesn't have corn rows. Otherwise we would have thousands of discussions on the treason of In Bill We Trust. Its ok for white player to hurt the team by holding out about a contract but god forbid a black WR speak his mind while playing. Me thinks Boston fan has little color issue..

That was one of the dumbest posts I've ever read on this forum. I'm not even going to dignify it by specifically addressing any of your "points"
What I will say is this : It is because of people like you (that try inject racism into situations where it is clearly not present) that this country has become so desensitized and skeptical towards actual racism.
The problem with racism, is that it is, more often than not, very subtle. And because of people that want to use racism as a crux, an excuse, or even just the people that are so blinded by race they can't see clearly, we tend to give people we shouldn't the benifit of doubt.
This race vigilance/paranoia is doing something the KKK couldn't do if they tried. It is seriously undermining legitimate claims of racism. It's an insult to the falsely accused and a disservice the black race that has to deal with real racism all the time. At best it's ignorant. At worst it's cowardly and destructive.
You want to live in a fantasy world where everybody loves Logan Mankins. And it's because he's white, go ahead. But you sound ridiculous.
Maybe you should go have a chat with run in the Celtics forum. I have a feeling you two would have a lot to talk about.
Furthermore, I didn't see you cite one person that had a problem with Moss (or "black reciever") that didn't have a problem with Mankins. People have been all over Mankins since the season started. But that doesn't fit your agenda, so you just ignore it.
