    I don’t suppose Arnold Schwarzenegger would be welcome here. AC DC (Back in Black)? Although they aren’t American.

    @KF — Actually, it’s a quadruple black Challenger. There is an R/T stripe running the length of the car that is also black. On the ‘Cudas they would be quadruple black because of a black billboard on the read quarter panel.

    Will people ever line the streets 30 years from now to look at the cars driven today?

    General John “Black Jack” Pershing. Hotlanta Mike knows that Schwartz means black in German. And how come we as consevatives can’t Blacklist liberals and progtards like they do to us? Or is it because we believe in the Golden rule and they don’t. We should call a spade a spade and spades are generally black in color like the ace of spades etc. Forgive me, if that makes me seem like I’m a racist, Im not, I’m just just an average 60 yr. old white guy.

    On a more serious note, one name that never pops up during Black History month is Wilbur Jackson, a running back for Alabama who was the first black athlete to ever receive a scholarship to play in the SEC

    When Wilbur was a freshman and ineligible to play, Alabama went 6-5-1, the worst showing of the Bear Bryant era. In his sophomore year, in 1971, the year Alabama converted to the Wishbone formation, Wilbur’s team went 11-1 and had scored 368 ponts, which at the time was an SEC record. During Wilbur’s senior year in 1973, Alabama ANNIHILATED the previous SEC scoring record to the tune of 477 points — a mark which would stand for 17 years

    And then in the famous post season Sugar Bowl game against Notre Dame, Wilbur was in the process of leading Alabama to a rout when he was put out of the game by a horrendous cheap shot by a Notre Dame linebacker who speared Wilbur in the kidney area as he was crossing the goal line to put Alabama ahead 17-14. Whereupon the Alabama offense completetly stalled out, although it did manage to score one more TD on a trick play.

    The very next year in 1974, Wilbur, the 4th pick in the NFL draft was the NFC’s rookie of the year. In the meantime, The offense at his alma mater scored 150 fewer points. And this even though the Alabama offense now fielded a majority of black athletes, including a black player playing center

    All of this beiing true, then it is clear that Wilbur Jackson was not only a pioneer who greatly assisted the process of integration in SEC football, but was also one of the greatest players in SEC history. And yet he has never been celebrated. How many of you readers have ever heard his name before?

    Of course, among the reasons for this is that Wilbur was never an angry resentful victim of racism pesonality or an example of destructive juvenile black hyper-masculinity.

    Moreover, I’m sure part of the explanation is that Wibur’s story highlights the fact that the South moved past it problem of racism on its own (and quite rapidly, as well) without the noble assistance of their Northern liberal betters. And because of that Wilbur might as well have been a waterboy’s apprentice, as opposed to being one of the greatest and most consequential football players in SEC history

    Of course, one other factor in Wilbur’s anonymity is that his greatest contribution to the team’s success was that he was one of the greatest blocking backs in the history of football, which meant he churned out individual stats that didn’t come close to measuring his full impact on a defense. What this means is that you would actually have to know something about football to inderstand the how and why of Alabama racking up so many points.

    And, as is obvious to anyone who ever played so much as a down in an intrasquad scrimmage, most libtard sporstwriters have zero independent knowledge of the sports they cover; they just go by the individual atatistics. As it was, Wilbur’s individual atats, the second most impressive thing about his game, were goood enough to earn him Third Team All American honors. Of course in retrospect, he should have won the Heisman, going away
