Awhile ago Kimmie E put QV on with the up and coming black scholar and athlete, Myron Rolle. Mr. Rolle is not you're average jock, instead he is a Rhodes Scholar, took a year off from football at Florida State to study at Oxford University in England, plans on becoming a neurosurgeon, and was sure to be picked in the first round of the 2010 NFL draft kinda brother lol. However it seems all of Myron Rolle's achievements hindered his chances in the NFL Draft. Instead of Rolle being a top pick in the first round of the NFL Draft, he was the 207th and final pick of the 6th round of the 2010 NFL Draft.
Ok now here is were shit gets real!
Some coaches in the NFL see Myron Rolle as a liability, due to his studies and his scholarly achievements. Furthermore, NFL coaches think Myron Rolle is not focused enough on football and too focused on brain power. So this is one of the main reasons that Myron Rolle fell so low in the 2010 NFL Draft. I am utterly disgusted by these actions made on behalf of the NFL. As ESPN journalist, Jemele Hill stated " NFL coaches prefer players who won't challenge the league's well-established groupthink mentality. They value warriors, not thinkers."
So you are telling me that a man that ran the 40 in 4.76 seconds and is a Rhodes scholar is too educated to be valued in the NFL. That because Myron Rolle wanted to pursue an elite education, his love and focus on football was questioned. This young black man was hailed as the "future of black America" and he is being put down for wanting to be educated. Yet many College level and Pro level athletes that have had drug problems, been accused of sexually molesting women, shooting some one, or doping on steroids are being praised by the NFL.(The NFL is just sweeping those situations under the rug) America wants there athletes to be one track minded, to say fuck education and just live and breathe football!!!! Wtf does that say to the kids in America?!?! O kids don't be educated and strive for something more, just pick up a ball and focus on sports and maybe you will be good enough to go pro although we all know only a small percentage of you will make it. Not every child will be a professional athlete or even make it as far as college level sports, but every child does have the chance to obtain an education.
Myron Rolle keep doing ya thing and i'll be looking for you on the Titans field. Those coaches are just threatened by you because you are one thing that America can not understand,trust, or stop.....you are an educated black man.
