He plays like Reggie Bush on the field...nicknaming him Reggie Bush is lame, so they gave him a nickname along with something that deviates him from Bush. They could have called him "The Twelve-Year Old Reggie Bush" or "The Short Reggie Bush" and it would still convey the same message; that he's not Reggie Bush, but he plays close to it.

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?
