Commentary by ex-Dallas Cowboy Michael Irvin on the Dan Patrick ESPN radio show: Irvin, while commenting about current Dallas quarterback Tony Romo, insinuated that his athleticism stems from some black blood in his ancestry:
""Somewhere there are some brothers in that line," Irvin added. "I don't know who saw what, where. His great, great, great, great grandma ran over in the 'hood, or something went down."
Patrick cut in, "That's the only way to be a great athlete?"
"No," Irvin replied, "that's not the only way. But it's certainly one way. Great, great, great, great grandma pulled one of them studs up outta the barn. 'Come here for a second.' You know, they go out and work in the yard. You know, back in the day. Something like that."
All that blatant racism over a week ago on a national radio show and hardly a peep out of the media. If a white conservative had said anything like it he would be out of a job by now and ruined for life.
