    Brian Hartline’s teammates think he’s underrated because he’s white

    PHP Code:
    When Jordy Nelson was breaking out for the Packers last seasonhis fellow wide receiver Greg Jennings said that he thought Nelson got underestimated around the league because he’s white.
    According to some members of the DolphinsNelson’s big 2011 season hasn’t changed much on that frontBen Volin of the Palm Beach Post writes that Hartlinewho ran track for a time at Ohio State and has shown he can get behind defenseskeeps hearing that the Dolphins need to get some more speed at receiver while hearing himself described as being “deceptively fast.” Wide receiver Davone Bess and quarterback Ryan Tannehill think that their teammate’s skills get downgraded becauselike Nelsonpeople are put off by a white wide receiver.

    “YeahmanDefinitely,” Bess said when asked if people underrate Hartline’s speed because of his skin color“He can runThat’s good that they sleep on himbecause come game time he can open up on them.
    “I’ve had that label before
    tooIt’s just kind of a stigma that comes with it,” Tannehillwho played receiver in college before moving to quarterbacksaid of the “deceptively fast” label“If it helps youthen it helps youI don’t know if teams underestimate him or anythingbut he’s making plays for us, and it doesn’t matter what color you are.”

    Without starting a huge debate, I don't think it ever will.

    I swear it seems as our society deteriorates slowly decade by decade.

    Racism will always be around because its embedded in every race on earth. Blacks,whites, hispanic, oriental etc.... they are all racists in one way or another. No race is exclusive.

    a bit yes. Just like how all black QBs are supposed to be scramblers. On another board I go to, somebody said Geno Smith was the best duo threat QB in the nation but other posters pointed out he has 257 career rushing yards with 217 of those coming his sophomore year and his career high in yards per rush is 2.

    I'm certainly not saying its right, but it seems that some people think that's the way, cuz 'most' number ones in the past and future are not white..Jerry Rice, Moss, Marshall, Chambers, T.O., Calvin Johnson, Ocho, Plax, Nicks, Duper, Clayton etc etc, the list goes on and on.. I love that he's under the radar.. At least he was!

    That was damn funny!

    I admit, I am a little racist toward Hartline b/c he is white (for the record, I am a white male).
