The interesting thing about him was that whenever I would watch the colts with colts fans, they noticed that he was the colts lineman most likely to screw up. You rarely hear white fans notice out loud that it's the black player who makes the most mistakes.

It would be cool if a white tackle took his spot, but probably not. At least the rest of the colts starters are white. I think Dungy is rather fair.

Yeah, his current backup is black, Charlie Johnson. Unless something big happens, he'll probably take over, because in Caste Football, once you go black you never go back.

Glenn ranks among the best examples of the huge difference between hype and reality when it comes to black offensive linemen in the NFL. As Nevada notes, Glenn was frequently penalized and was the obvious weak link on the Colts line, yet he was the one the announcers always swooned over, and he was the only Colts lineman to make the Pro Bowl. When the other Colts linemen are mentioned by announcers, you know the whites ones who opened the holes for slow Edgerrin James and who give Peyton Manning great protection most of the time, it's usually to wonder why they're so "under-rated."

That's funny Don, because in the ESPN article about Glenn retiring, they of course said it was Ryan Diem who struggles at tackle, so the colts should probably forget moving him into Glenn's old spot. They suggested the colts would be much wiser to put rookie Tony Ugoh in there, or maybe backup Charles Johnson. Gee, a rookie or a backup would be better than a multi-year starter? Oh that's right, they're black, so they must be automatically better. This IS american football after all, where the black guy is always better, automatically, no matter what.

Laughable caste BS. Transparent, insulting, predictable.
