Here we go again. Echoing a recent NY Times piece Grant Wahl(not the worst SI writer) insinuates that the rise of black striker Eddie Johnson is a revolutionary step. He cites his defensive back--speed/hops etc prowess as the next step forward. Again stuff like this is a total affront to caste for it suggests that once again black athletes are superior to the "leaden white boys". And now that seemingly blacks are showing up in greater numbers in soccer here in the states this hype will only continue. Perhaps all the whites in soccer will be wiped out like in football. No CB's, no TB's and few WR's. And we will have to endure years of media blather regarding the "swift black athlete and stiff slow white athletes" forever and ever. And then some more after we die in case we missed it the first go around.
