If he were Black, people would be calling Brady a criminal and saying his behavior reflected some innate values. They would blame hip-hop, single mothers, and the culture of poverty: if a Black player, the conversation wouldn’t be about Goodell or the system, but how the lack of a work ethic and morals led him to cut corners, to win ‘by any means necessary.’ If he were Black, the conversation would turn to affirmative action and how he was forced to cheat because he lacked the skills needed to excel at this elite level. -- +David J Leonard

"In the case of Mo’ne Davis, (Gaby) Douglas, and countless others, the system failed to foreclose opportunities to these girls as they found ways to break down the doors of racism and sexism. The failures of a system to contain and constrain prompts the backlash and the efforts to preserve the order of White things." --+David J Leonard
