    Dexter Manley, “The Secretary of Defense,” was rather offensive on Saturday.
    Manley, making an appearance as a studio analyst on CBS station WUSA, said black quarterbacks like to run because “they are probably used to running from the law.”
    The comment left his co-host cringing, along with anyone else who was watching.

    Dexter Manley makes a cringeworthy comment about black quarterbacks.
    The former NFL defensive end’s comment is even more bizarre when you consider Manley, an African-American, was teammates in Washington with Doug Williams when he became the first black quarterback to win a Super Bowl.
    Fortunately, Manley recognized what he said was inappropriate and apologized later in the show.
    “I made a comment earlier about black quarterbacks, and I do apologize,” Manley said. “ I say things that I don’t think about sometimes.”

    No apology needed. Now if he said black quarterbacks run like they just stole a watermelon then he might have to apologize.

    Yeah it looks a lot more like trying to stifle a laugh than a cringe.

    OK obviously that's not why they're fast. It's closer to the Jimmy the Greek theory in reality. It is a funny line though. Wouldn't it be great if the world could just laugh off these modern day gaffes?
