There’s no ignoring the reality that some people don’t want Mahomes to succeed because of his skin color. This is incredibly backward because it’s 2024 and these things shouldn’t matter. However, there are plenty of dumb morons in this world and they make their feelings known on the Internet.
Lamar Jackson is another quarterback who experiences this type of treatment. He believes that broadcasters hold Black QBs to a different standard because of their appearance. It’s pathetic that this is happening but evidence suggests that Mahomes and Jackson are speaking the truth (via SF Gate).
