Whether it’s Colin Kaepernick’s tattoos or Robert Griffin III’s alleged brand of cornball blackness, the subject of race remains a flashpoint in our nation’s discourse about NFL quarterbacks. Why is the conversation about race and quarterbacks so contentious? Well, like the presidency and the who plays Rue in the Hunger Games movies, it just matters what race your team’s quarterback is. While many quarterbacks may be of the same race, each has a unique thing to say about the state of race relations in America today. Rather than wait for a hack to uncork a terrible rant about it, we decided to cut to the chase and just tell you what each team’s quarterback situation signifies about race in America today:
