From the beginning, let me make it plain that I do not like the Cowboys.
The Cowboys are so unimportant to me that I can’t even work up something as serious as a hatred towards them.
They don’t matter.
I’m a Jets fan.
However, I will confess that as a Negro, I know far too many fellow Negroes that absolutely love those fucking Cowboys and who’ve never been anywhere near Dallas, much less the state of Texas.
And I don’t know what it is about their charm that captures the Negro heart.
It could be that they, unlike any other team in the NFL, wear white as a home jersey which means essentially that they always wear white (as most teams wear their dark colors as home jerseys).
Or it could be that they do win – 5 Chips and counting – and have, at times featured the games hottest stars including Roger Staubach, Tony Dorsett, “Hollywood” Henderson, “Bullet” Bob Hayes, Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, Emmitt Smith and Deion Sanders.
Or it could just be as primal as the fact that they call themselves “Cowboys” triggering positive hero reinforcement.
That clown-ass team has had exactly one Black starting quarterback of note; Quincy Carter who allegedly squandered genuine talent away on drugs and strong drink.
Now they’ve got Tony Romo.
Believe me, if the regular season was The Chip, Tony Romo would have several.
However, since you also have to play the game once the regular season ends, Romo’s problems become clear.
So despite mainstream media’s baffling adoration of the guy, the writing has been on the wall for Romo’s departure for a while now.
Romo is 2-4 in the playoffs as a starter, ranked #97 overall in NFL history and has never as much as appeared in the Super Bowl.
Enter 2016 4th round draft pick Dak Prescott.
Now, I don’t know if you’ve been watching pre-season football or even the highlights, but this kid looks amazing.
If you add youth to talent it’s a cinch he’ll eventually assume Romo’s position as starter if not flat out beat him out for the job.
The problem is though, Dak Prescott is Black.
And yes, I know in 2016 we’re supposed to be so far beyond the old stereotype that Black people simply don’t have the intellectual tools to play the quarterback position but full disclosure: as much as I like seeing Black quarterbacks, I’ve never liked the idea of one helming my own team (looking at you, Geno Smith) and I’m about as anti-white as they come, feeling that the entire race should be slaughtered wholesale with the notable exceptions of The Beatles, Hunter S. Thompson, Ayn Rand, Kristaps Porzingis, Woody Allen and Dustin Hoffman; the last two of which, I’m not even sure count, being Jews and all.
But the fact remains that in the entire history of the NFL and the 50 year history of the Super Bowl, only two Black quarterbacks have won the darn thing, Doug Williams and Russell Wilson.
Remember Cam Newton‘s infamous meltdown In last year’s Super Bowl?
It’s like Black quarterbacks themselves demonstrate a subconscious belief in those anti-Black stereotypes through their play.
So the questions that remain are, are Black quarterbacks finally ready to turn the tide and be at least on par with the best of white quarterbacks?
And also, has Tony Romo demonstrated through his play in the post-season that he’s secretly a Black quarterback?
