    "America's Team" in America's "Opiate of the Masses" aka the NFL follows a strict Caste regimen every year -- whites are allowed to start at quarterback, tight end and offensive lineman but no other positions. Jerry Jones' showcase franchise showcases the extreme theory of racial supremacy behind the Caste System, which holds that white football players aren'tcapable of playing running back, wide receiver, or most defensive positions.


    Much of the Cowboys' success in 2007 may rest on starting quarterback Tony Romo, who was unheralded but played well after Drew Bledsoe was suddenly and permanently demoted. Romo has been hyped by the media as a "hispanic" player because of his partial Mexican ancestry, but to the naked eye he certainly looks as white as any other white player in the league.


    Tight end Jason Witten has very nice speed and hands and easily could be used, ala Dallas Clark at times, as a wide receiver. But big white guys with speed and great hands are only allowed to play tight end. Even Matt Jones with his 4.3 40 speed was only begrudgingly "allowed" to play wide receiver.


    Second year man Anthony Fasano out of Notre Dame backs up Witten and has excellent receiving ability and athleticism in his own right.


    The offensive line starts two white players, one more than usual. Marc Colombo from Boston College, a one-time first round draft pick of the Bears, starts at RT, while Kyle Kosier anchors left guard. There's a healthy amount of white backups -- Joe Berger, Doug Free, Pat McQuistan, and Cory Procter.


    Brad Johnson, about to turn 39,is Romo's backup.


    The Cowboys have just two white defensive players, both backups. Bobby Carpenter was the team's first round draft pick in '06 but still is not starting. He is currently listed as a backup at both inside and outside LB.


    LB Justin Rogers out of SMU is a rookie. Is he the league's next White Special Teams Demon?


    NUMBER OF WHITE STARTERS: 4


    APPROXIMATE NUMBER OF WHITE PLAYERS ON 53 MAN ROSTER: 14

    from Dallas Cowboys blog:
    Cowboys LB Bobby Carpenter has a slightly torn quadriceps muscle.

    Doctors told the 2006 first-round pick to sit out four-to-six weeks to heal, but Carpenter has decided to try to push through the injury. Carpenter leads the Cowboys in special teams tackles but is used sparingly on defense.

    this kid can't catch a break. and why isn't he a starter? it's not like he was some obscure 6th round pick... give him a freakin' shot Cowboys!

    I don't have any numbers to validate this point, but wheneverI watch the Dallas Cowboys play, their defense gives up points. The team wins as a result of having a strong offense. We all know this. Thus, I cannotfathom why Bobby Carpenter is given little to no opportunity to play defense for this team. At least play him at linebacker during blowouts, which they don't even do. Seriously, ifI was Bobby Carpenter I would bevery upset aboutbeing forced torisk a career ending injury week in and week out on special teams. I was at the game in 2004 when Redskins starting safety Matt Bowen blew out his kneewhile playing special teams. Obviously, he hasn't been the same since.


    Bobby Carpenter is way too talented to be another Caste System casualty.

    The Cowboys are reportedly trying to trade Bobby Carpenter. Like Matt Jones, Carpenter needs to go to another team. He's been completely wasted, used merely as a "special teams mascot" as DD puts it in their intro to this link. Notice the comments of the drunk white fans after this article. Carpenter is a "bust" even though he's had no opportunity to play linebacker for the team.
