I'm a black man. VY's comments are part of the racial double standard that allows us to say things that white men can't say. But we'd gladly trade you the majority for that freedom. I really think it's silly to continue to make issues of the double standard. It is what it is. There's no way in the world Vince thinks he was benched for being black. In fact, he wasn't really benched. He got hurt. Another thing to keep in mind is that "Strong Black Man" is a common term in the black community, due to the issues we have with our men currently. I'm sure his family calls him a "Strong Black Man". That's something that a young black male should aspire to be, instead of a deadbeat, back child support owing, in jail black man.
