There are white running qbs, I agree, they just aren't called running qbs.

Russell Wilson's size was definitely a question mark, no debating about that, but compare the college production of Russell Wilson and Seneca Wallace and you will feel pretty silly, why not compare him to Doug Flutie or another short athletic qb that might not have brown skin?

I know black qbs get drafted high, but race does affect how they are perceived
I do agree with your point that some are reluctant to compare across racial lines. I just think you were overreacting the premise with your examples.

I do recall some people talking about Jamarcus and Cam, but context was them being boom or bust players and nothing at all about how they play.
