I guess it's because if his name was Antuan he'd be suspended from school or at least the team for "conduct detrimental to the team", Mel Kiper and Todd mcshay would be on shows almost daily talking about nfl teams having concerns with his "character issues" even though he hasn't broken any laws, and there'd be no "he's just a kid" responses because he'd be EXPECTED to be on his ps & qs at ALL TIMES.....
Sad to say it but there is a double standard......
Well said... The negative publicity he's been getting through the media doesn't even compare to the fire say a Teddy Bridgewater would be thrown into if he's acting the way Johnny Football is.
I'm mixed, and have seen things through both perspectives. Not all, but a lot of white people want to act like an issue is so cut-and-dry. They want to act like everything is rainbows and puppy breath like there aren't deep-rooted racial stigmas that govern this society's outlook and how it functions... Not sure if that will ever change. So it is what it is.
