His race is irrelevant, but I agree that the kid is talented. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

I'm going to take him with my first pick in my fantasy football dynasty league this year. Hope he pans out.

I misread the title as "White Reggae" before clicking on the link. It was impressive, but I was expecting http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xm4JMHL4tuE

The kids nickname is "The White Reggie". How, then, is race irrelevant?

Because it's ridiculous to give a supposed eight-year-old a race-based nickname in the first place. He hasn't even reached double-digits in age yet, and already he's the Great White Hope for football. The kid looks older than eight to me, but still impressive skills for a young guy.

Also, #32 (I think) on the green team got absolutely broke off.

He's actually 13 and the video is of him as a 12 year old. I agree with you that he didn't look 8, and the plays were way too flawless and complex for 8 year olds...so I looked up his name and found out that the 8 year old rumors are just rubbish.

I don't see how giving someone a race-based nickname is ridiculous. It isn't like anything negative comes out of the nickname on either side; it's just a form of identification that holier-than-thou people like to point at as an atrocity any time someone mentions a skin tone.

Don't you think the nickname denotes he's not as good as he possibly is. He's only getting credit for his talents because he happens to be white? It is irrelevant. If the kid's good, he's good. Does matter if he's black good or white good. Why does this still matter?
