    Why do I have to be the one to announce this. Ethan Kilmer is now listed as a Cornerback for the Bengals. I hope he dosent wind up like Kevin Kaesviharn who was a quality Cb. Blacks that cant cover once in a while stay at CB but a white guy makes one mistake and hes a safety or kicked off the team. Why dosent the mainstream media pick up on this. Just another case of double standards.

    It's usually the other way around, A white cb in the NFL usually gets converted to safety. So it's refreshing that Kilmer has shown enough ability for the Bengals to give him a chance to play cb. You are right though, because he is white, his margin for error will be very slim.

    Guest: Dont worry about you being who you are. I have been following the plight of the white CB for 16 years. I can name any white corner in college and unfortunately get moved to safety. It all started when a great athlete named John Kolesar was moved from Cb to WR for Michigan. I am so sick of these white coaches that betray the white athlete based on a stereotype. Yes, blacks are quick and fast but so are whites!!!!!!

    On the bright side, one reason blacks aren't moved to safety is because they often don't read offenses or tackle as well as whites.

    The Miami Dolphins have signed Kilmer to a contract.
