Bernard Hopkins Thinks Donovan McNabb Isn't Black Enough

Oh god. Not this again. For all the criticism Donovan McNabb gets for his performance on the field, he get way more for things off the field that are totally ignorant and have nothing to do with anything. I feel for him, and everyone should. Making matters worse, boxer Bernard Hopkins has weighed in with a Rush Limbaugh-like critique of McNabb's skin color.

Via Philly.com:

According to Hopkins, McNabb had a privileged childhood in suburban Chicago and, as a result, is not black enough or tough enough, at least compared with, say, himself, Michael Vick and Terrell Owens.

"Forget this," Hopkins said, pointing to his own dark skin. "He's got a suntan. That's all."

He then said McNabb is the "guy in the house, while everybody else is on the field." I believe we have two choices right now. The first is to respond with a long diatribe about how horrendously stupid Hopkins' comments are. The second is to acknowledge that reality and ignore them because of it. I choose the second option.
