Anyhow, I finished watching a segment where he said that Tim Tebow has "White Privilege," because he made the roster on the Jacksonville Jaguars. This doesn't mean he'll be on the team in the fall when the season starts, but his tryouts were good enough to get him a shot. Basically, Smith's claiming that Urban Meyer is racist, even though as usual almost everyone trying out for the team was African American. And that there are thousands of African American families that Coach Meyer has worked with over the years in the recruiting process who love him. When it comes to racism, the truth has no place when it comes to people like Smith.
Now anyone who knows Coach Meyer knows this is an absolute lie. He's a strong, Christian man who shows nothing but love to anyone in his life. Tebow helped him win a championship. Tebow brought another Heisman to the University of Florida. Of course he was going to get a shot at trying out because they're close. But it was the offensive coach who wanted Tim on the team because of Tim's athleticism. He's a beast. He always gives 150%, which will help raise the bar on the athletes who just try to get by with their abilities. He's the kind of player who is a coach's dream.
The bottom line is that Smith is disgusting. There's no way a white person could get away with such rhetoric if the roles were reversed. These double-standards must be stopped or race relations will never have a chance to improve.
BTW: Tim Tebow's Jacksonville Jaguar jersey is already one of the best selling jersey's in the NFL, which goes to show many fans are excited. And believe me, the Jaguar's needed some excitement after years of lackluster performance. Ticket sales will increase if Tim's on the field in the Fall. Neither the GM or Coach Meyer are stupid, but the arrogant Stephen Smith, is.
