I agree that this isn't worth making a big stink over, but to be fair, he did mention color. "Caucasian street guy" is what he called Mallett.

More often than not, if a white guy is referred to by a black guy as "white boy" or a white guy does something athletic and you hear "not bad for a white guy," most people don't bat an eye. Just like Jamie Dukes can call Mallett a white street guy, and no one outside the blogosphere cares.

But if Rich Eisen had called Julio Jones a "black boy," or street, hood, ghetto, nappy headed, or some other term of that nature, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would be beating down his door.

Me personally, I don't really give a damn. Skin color has never really mattered to me. But the double standard annoys me.
Wow so that's what u think of us? Sounds like it does matter to you.
You want than to lose his job? Will that make u feel better?

Ahh... who cares, the description seems pretty accurate. No different than saying a black guy off the streets is "a African-American street guy." If he said he was white devil cracker-ass wannabe, then there might be an issue. Even if the white guy race card credit limit went up a little with a black man in the White house, they need to stay in the wallet for something bigger than this.

What????

Re-read my post. I said I don't think it was particularly racist, and that skin color doesn't matter to me. I just simply pointed out a double-standard that without a doubt exists in society.

For the record you're the one throwing around "good ole boy" terms all the while being hyper sensitive. Proving my point for me? Methinks.....

I don't think Dukes had any racist intentions behind his thinking, probably just wasn't worded the best way.

Re: Was Jamie Dukes out of line on Ryan Mallett?

All I was saying is Dukes said a racist comment which IMO it was. I'm not saying he's racist but again if A white analyst said that he would be in hot water. Fair is fair folks

Re: Was Jamie Dukes out of line on Ryan Mallett?

The double standard exists for a reason. I really don't want to get into it but in this case I think Duke's comments were ill advised and poorly worded, but I don't think it was meant as racist in any way.

Pretty accurate statement here. Hard to argue with this post.

BTW- Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson are glorified racial ambulance chasers. They rip into Imus but celebrate Ludicris. Although both wrong, what's really worse calling someone "nappy headed hoe" or telling her to "move bitch get out the way" and sell records to young girls encouraging misogony?

Before some of you get mad about me dissing Sharpton & Jackson....I'm Black...lol.

Lol. I like that. So true. My eyes immediately roll at the sight of either of those two.

Re: Was Jamie Dukes out of line on Ryan Mallett?

he did a poor job of phrasing it, but the message is true imo. its a little offensive the way he said it, but not enough to have people care or turn it into something big.

Re: Was Jamie Dukes out of line on Ryan Mallett?

^ I agree matty but why would dukes eve say that? Who cares if the guy has some black Friends and acts like them? It's 2011 this race crap should be over by now.

He even compared him to Eminem or Vanilla Ice? He knew what he was trying to say

Re: Was Jamie Dukes out of line on Ryan Mallett?

I don't consider Dukes racist but I tend to tune out everything he says because I think he is lousy and I don't think I learn anything by listening to him. I watched this entire episode of Total Access where he was talking about Mallet but i must have started day dreaming because i don't even remember him saying it.

You probably would have stayed awake had he been talking about Blaine Gabbert since you love Gabbert so much...
