Blacks and whites united win Super Bowl 50

I am elated that Peyton Manning, a truly class act, can retire on top.  Manning and his Denver Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers to win Superbowl 50.  Congratulations to Broncos defensive player Von Miller (a black guy) for winning MVP.

During pre-Super Bowl media blitz week, a leftist site published an article, “The Panthers Are the Most Unapologetically Black Team in NFL History.”  Folks, imagine the media firestorm if the word “white” was in the headline rather than “black.”  And yet, the left celebrates blacks segregating themselves.  The left views blacks dissing whites as loyalty to their “blackness,” a very cool black thing to do.

Another article absurdly accused white fans of hating Panthers quarterback Cam Newton because he is black and happy and dances.  Even Newton himself cited racism as the reason whites have criticized him.  Hogwash!  These people on the left simply will not allow us to move beyond race in this country.

Given the divisive racial chatter coming out of the Panthers' camp, the Broncos choosing not to engage in such separatism is refreshing.  In postgame interviews, Manning and fellow teammates, black and white, touted working together as a team as the source of their victory.  One could say blacks and whites united won Super Bowl 50.

Back in 1988, my basement was filled with black guys.  My dad, brothers, a few friends, and I watched Doug Williams, the first black quarterback to start in a Super Bowl.  Williams won Super Bowl XXII.  I still smile remembering us exchanging high fives and the jubilation we felt.

Race was an important issue because black NFL quarterbacks were rare.  Black college quarterbacks were usually made receivers once they reached the NFL.  Whether this is true or not, word in the black community was that whites did not think blacks were smart enough to lead an NFL team in the role of quarterback.  Thus, Williams's MVP performance was huge – a tremendous source of black pride, opening the door for many.

So here we are in 2016, and liberals still insist on dividing Americans by stirring the pot of racial division, interjecting a nonexistent racial component into the Super Bowl.

Americans simply want to enjoy a nonpolitical evening of overindulging in salty snacks while rooting for their favorite team.
