What if Tim Tebow was black? How would his career have turned out?

I respectfully disagree that he would have received the same treatment.

We only need to look to last season for an example of a black, outspoken Christian quarterback, rookie CJ Stroud. Now CBS (or was it NBC), made sure they removed his praise of Jesus from his post game interview clip in the playoff game but that’s about it. There is no media campaign to deride Stroud and run him out of the league. In fact it is the opposite, heaps of deserving praise with countless articles listing him as on of the future black stars at the position.

The league wants QB to be as black as RB. They would allow Stroud to perform baptisms on field before games and prayer sessions on field afterwards if it furthered the goal of White erasure.
Agree. Whites and Christians both face discrimination from the globalist elite but Whites get it far, far worse.

Y'all may have heard of the "Fellowship of Christian Athletes." Lefties bash it sometimes but they're mostly allowed to operate without being jihaded against.

Now imagine if someone tried to start a "Fellowship of White Athletes." The outrage from the usual suspects would literally register an 11 on the Richter scale, the fellowship would be banned before it began, and every single person involved with it would be charged with a hate crime and locked up in indefinite detention a la the January 6 martyrs. And that is the difference.

Maybe Harrison Butker showed the way. Anything with "White" in the name is currently a non-starter, but "Christian" generates sympathy. Or just being an admirable individual and standing for the right things as red-blooded Americans always have, it resonates. . .

It’s a courageous move on his part, for sure. He had a lot to lose but he spoke his mind clearly.

If anyone in our supposed opposition party did the same imagine how much better off we would be?

I may be in the minority here, but probably not that differently. I watched Tebow's time with Denver closely, and while he pulled off an improbable run to a playoff win, it was largely on the back of the defense and a handful of clutch offensive plays. He was an inefficient passer with terrible mechanics.

His lack of second chances was less about his skin color and more about the perceived baggage surrounding him (his faith and the media circus that followed), plus the fact that the offense has to be tailored to his strengths. Most teams want a plug and play backup who can run the same system as the starter, and decided a project backup wasn't worth the trouble.

He probably would've fared better in today's NFL where he could backup a guy like Jalen Hurts, to be honest. Or as a Taysom Hill type player.
Yeah, realistic, reasonable, and nuanced opinions are not welcomed here typically. You nailed it though, I think he would do a lot better in today's game b/c of the offenses. His baggage was/is very similar to Kaepernick, teams didn't/don't want all of that "extra" that those two brought.

Really?! Realistic, reasonable, and nuanced opinions don't exist here. LOL newbies.

Tebow kneeled for Christ.

Krapernick kneeled for Corporate Sluts at Nike and St Floyd and St Michael Brown.
