Doug Williams, Super Bowl performance was history making because it was record setting, not because he was black. Both Warren Moon and Doug Williams should be in the NFL Hall Of Fame.
We can chose to ignore it or pretend it doesn't exist but it isn't going to go away. This documentary shows that progress has been made, however incrementally as far as black athletes playing
the position of QB in the NFL. It really wasn't all that long ago that a statement like " blacks just aren't smart enough to play QB" was accepted by many.
Hopefully as a nation we have moved past sending death threats to black QB's and are willing to judge an athlete "not by the color of their skin, but the content of their character."
ESPN has done a very fine job with this and other documentaries. I hope they keep up the good work going forward.
