Some youthful indiscretions lead to a life of wealth and power, some lead to a lack of citizenship rights...

If Kavanaugh were black, he wouldn't get away with the it. Look at Clarence Thomas...oh, wait.

How about it being just wrong, no matter the offender's background? Isn't that enough?

If Anita Hill looked Christine Blasey Ford, Clarence Thomas would not be the Senior Associate Justice.

Something unprovable.

Still, what you're saying is...

The wrong itself is not enough. Race has to be added into it, just because.

Race has to be included because this is the USA. We refuse to reckon with our original sin.

in every situation?


Is this every situation?

You made the comparisons. Explain then and quit dodging your posts.

OK, a guy is nominated to the Supreme Court in 1991 and is accused of sexual harassment by a former subordinate. Clarence Thomas is accused by Christine Blasey Ford... in your honest opinion, is he on the Court today?

"Tom knows Bill is the best coach in the league, but he's had enough of him," the anonymous source with knowledge of the relationship told O'Connor in the book. "If Tom could, I think he would divorce him."

19 year marriages between QBs and coachs is pretty rare if not unique in the NFL.

Perhaps after two decades together both long for new trophy partners.

Perhaps, but he doesn't want to end up his career showing his true self.

Avery Bradley plus Wes Johnson or Teodosic make a salary match w the Clips, who can add some picks to that package. Averyís next year is a team option at under 13 million. I hope it goes that way. I donít think Brooklyn or Miami have anything that good to offer. Iíd prefer that we stay out of it at this point.

Didn't Butler butt heads with everyone in CHI?
Had trouble taking on a leadership role.
Terrific player, but did his head overinflate?

I'd definitely talk to KZ on his opinion of Butler.

If Butler can you get you Kyrie, well then you do what you gotta do.
I'm not a Kyrie fan, but he is an impressive offensive talent.  And we need a PG.

If suddenly you can start: Kyrie - Tim Jr - Butler - Knox - KZ
well, then you have a genuine team.

While one of the QBs might have made more sense than Barkley (though I don't think any of them are the generational type of talent that Barkley is), the O-line issue would still be in place and in the end I've got less trouble with relying on Manning for another year or so than I do with hiring Shurmur who's the exact same guy as McAdoo.
