White Quarterback Privilege Part I: Tim Tebow, Alex Smith, and The Freedom to Fail by Charles ModianoPosted in Blogroll on January 20th, 2012 by Michael Tillery
This is a cross post originally appearing over at Modi’s site.
Tim Tebow’s season is over, and I suspect within the next year or two, so are his days as an NFL starting quarterback given the statistical reality of his 6-week win streak. If true, his 2011 football legacy is that his star upstaged historic seasons by Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, and Tom Brady. Quite refreshingly, he has also helped ignite some excellent commentary on his intersecting racial and religious privileges. Analysis of Tebow’s off-field privileges include “What’s Not to Love…: Start with his Anti-Abortion Ad”?”, “Tebow Exposed”, “What if Tim Tebow Were Muslim?” and “Waking Up From the National Nightmare”.
