    I'll wear my "horrible human being" mantle proudly I guess. I also agree with Ditka here.

    Well, that's debatable. Losing to the Jets in their opener was pretty damn awful.

    Ditka's father was a Ukrainian coal miner in Pennsylvania. His original last name was pretty ugly so his father had to change it to an Anglicized name (Ditka). There's no reason to believe he didn't face some sort of discrimination in his youth, if nothing else.

    So you've never encountered a single white person who is a racist? Ever?

    So much for the theory that there's a systematic race issue in this country then.

    I agree. He may not be black, but I am sure he knows how it feels to be discriminated against.

    Even if he were/is, this doesn't mean he's wrong. But I think you're wrong if your objection is just an ad hom about who said it.
