During today’s highlight of Travis Kelce’s touchdown dance from Sunday’s game against the Bills, SportsCenter’s Robert Flores openly wondered why no one was up in arms over the Chiefs’ tight end hitting the Quan. After all, Cam Newton caught hell for reveling in the Panthers’ win over the Titans two weeks ago, which prompted a wave of scorching opinions about the ethics of dabbing in a football game. Flores’s question was entirely rhetorical.

“Now, I’m wondering why there’s no letters to the editor, or why First Take’s not doing, “Should Travis Kelce be dancing in the end zone?”

[Jay Crawford: “You sure they didn’t?”]

“They didn’t. I wonder why they’re not doing that. Oh wait, it’s because he’s not black. That’s probably what it is.”

Flores might be on to something here.
