When Will The Media Elite Stop Tearing Down Our White Heroes?

Every debate needs comic relief, and God bless him, Rush Limbaugh is always good for that. The former director of promotions for the Kansas City Royals in the early 1980s, and at one time the word's fifth-leading importer of OxyContin (behind Brazil), Limbaugh has become in recent years obsessed with the race of NFL quarterbacks. First it was Donovan McNabb, and now Rex Grossman.

It's just — they're focusing on this guy like they don't focus on anybody! And I tell you, I know what it is. The media, the sports media, has got social concerns that they are first and foremost interested in, and they're dumping on this guy — Rex Grossman — for one reason, folks, and that's because he is a white quarterback.


This is absolutely true: This is why the media constantly rooting for black quarterbacks like Tony Romo.
