One of the best quarterbacks in the NFL said a racial bias against black QBs still exists.
Lamar Jackson, who starred at Louisville as the signal-caller and then was asked to run receiver drills at the combine in 2018, suggested he still has to prove himself partly because of his skin color.
During an appearance on LeBron James’ “The Shop,” the conversation turned to times in which the NBA star feels disrespected, and James brought the topic to Jackson.
“It’s dying off, but it’s still there,” James said about a bias against black quarterbacks. “It’s still there,” Jackson agreed. “That’s why I need that championship.”
