Sounds like people think it's OK for black people to be assholes in the 21st century because a bunch of white people were assholes in the 20th.
Race is irrelevant in the NFL; if Tom Brady was being investigated by the feds for, oh, say, something he and Ms. Bundchen were smuggling in from South America, Goodell would suspend him.
And no one has mentioned Marcus Vick. Not sure what the Vick family structure is, but if they were white farm kids, one brother abusing animals and one brother assaulting people, I'd say the adults responsible for their upbringing didn't teach them right from wrong. 9 times out of 10 I'd be right.
