Thrashen it is not your imagination. Over the past few years there has been a general trend that looks upon white skill players more favorably. I also believe say the NFL has recognized to some extent that white skill players is good for the BOTTOM LINE. Witness all the excitement over the Patriots magical victory where three white wide receivers performed like champs. The Patriots victory drove home the point that the long trend that was increasingly marginalizing white skill players was not a very good idea from a social and or business aspect. But there are still three disruptive barriers to this tangible but minimal progress we are witnessing. One is the league is still skewered towards being heavily black. Believe me if sports in general ever reached a point where I was satisfied I would have no need for this caste football site. Second there are still plenty of media outlets and sports analysts that play the caste card on a consistent basis. One prime example is ESPN's "Mike and Mike in the Morning." Third is we need to stay vigilant because this slight uptick in white skill presence is bucking a long sturdy consistent trend. In a sense this is a pushback to a long established caste setting. Blink and this uptick could disappear. Plus we are still at a low level but gains are gains and the last thing we need here are setbacks once again. We can't go back to the really bad old days.
