This video from Old Rich People goes nicely with Donovan McNabb's comments about the additional scrutiny black quarterbacks face that will air on HBO's Real Sports.

"There's not that many African-American quarterbacks, so we have to do a little bit extra," McNabb tells HBO. "Because the percentage of us playing this position, which people didn't want us to play … is low, so we do a little extra."

Really?  Are we still doing this?  Is it 1985 or something?  Is Doug Williams struggling to get a roster spot somewhere?  I don't want to say people in the media aren't racist assholes, because plenty of them are, but about one-fourth of NFL teams have a black quarterback as their starter or future "franchise" QB.  More if you count Tony Romo.  

Note to Donovan: you're not criticized and booed because you're black, you're criticized and booed because you're in Philly.
