In Bill Simmons' ESPN column today, he described Tampa Bay QB Bruce Gradkowski as "biracial." This was hastily (and correctly) changed to "Polish-Italian" minutes later. Here are a couple of pictures to illustrate how "biracial" he is:

In high school, before he lost his hair:

Shows how ingrained the caste system is in people's minds. If a quarterback is "mobile" (as Gradkowski is known to be) the initial assumption is that they must be part-black. Even with a name like Gradkowski. They don't get much whiter-sounding than that.Edited by: StaleyWasScrewd

Bruce is yet another Pittsburgh born-and-bred quarterback. This area has been and continues to be the hometown of a long list of NFL quarterbacks -- Unitas, Namath, Montana, Marino, Kelly, Bulger, Frerotte, and others. Like Gradkowski, Montana and Marino are also Polish and Italian, a great combination of white DNA.


Pittsburgh is also the hometown of Mike Ditka and many other NFL coaches, but for some reason thisnotable football hotbed and breeding ground doesn't produce white NFL players at positions other than quarterback and offensive lineman. How strange. . .

Typical Caste crap. Can it get any more humiliating? This is part of the divide and conquer strategy that has a tendency to work a trick. Separate Southern from Northern Europeans and we fight amongst ourselves to race replacement.

In Europe it is more difficult but in US it works really well.

Bill Simmons is moron who tries to come off as a smart ass. I doubt he did one bit of research on Gradkowski. He has written many moronic pieces over the years that he has been writing for ESPN. Classic pieces on boxing and the "Russian domination" and poker display his lack of research.......

Here is another mistake done by Yahoo! Sports after tonights game:

"Tony Romo replaced Drew Parcells at the start of the second half Monday, but he threw three interceptions in a 36-22 loss"

I could understand these mistakes if this was boxing or hockey, but the NFL? I hope the rookie writers are forced to cover the city hall beat for a year. Seeing and reporting on the local aldermen opening seniors homes will make the moron long for his previous plumb job.....
