    Tattoos means you're an inmate or thug now?

    "Approximately 98.7 percent of the inmates at Californiaís state prison have tattoos. I donít know that as fact, but Iíve watched enough ďLockupĒ to know itís close to accurate."

    There seems to be a lot of racist and ignorant comments like this made in the article. It's okay for any basketball player to have tattoos but when the NFL QB position is held by a black man who happens to have tattoos then all hell will break loose? I'm sorry, i just don't buy that the QB of an NFL team has that much power and influence over todays kids.

    Re: Tattoos means you're an inmate or thug now?

    How about the fact that he's just a QB with a bunch of tattoos, which is something you don't see so often.

    The only one bringing in the racism ******** is you. Minorities can in fact be talked about without the tone being overtly racist.

    I've always thought they're stupid and hence, I've never gotten one. Whether I sit back and judge people that have them...is nobody's business!

    Re: Tattoos means you're an inmate or thug now?

    whoever judges a person based on tattoos are idiots. I suppose those people think that most of the ISU basketball team are thugs based on that.

    I'm not, I should have clarified my post a bit. I apologize. Though my point still stands.

    Re: Tattoos means you're an inmate or thug now?

    Maybe the author isn't trying to be racists but it does show how ignorant he is.

    He talks about how Kaepernick could potentially hold the Lombardi Trophy up and says to imagine the impact of that. WHAT IMPACT??

    It's the fact he plays for the SAN FRANCISCO 49ers?!? Don't you get THAT? He will be a beacon for one of the gayest cities in America and soon all the kids will be in their backyards pretending to throw Super Bowl winning TD passes then hitting the showers like Bert and Ernie do together on Sesame Street. An African-American, tattoo-wearing gay man will become the face of the NFL and the whole world will burn in hell and go into Oblivion!!! FOX NEWS PREDICTS IT!! How don't you people see this?

    BIG

    I don't believe Kaepernick is gay or any of the above...just funny how crazy people can overreact to what they truly don't understand, become afraid and turn on all their mechanisms to cope.

    For those of us who get it...Kaepernick's ink is no big deal, nothing to see - move along people.

    I think Dan Patrick said it best, "the author doesn't really sound racist, he just sounds old."

    I would agree with this. This article has nothing to do with racism I think people who try to make into a racism issue are being more racist than the author of this article is, because those people are implying that tattoos is a black thing, which it is not

    He is using the same reasoning that many police departments make. You are the face of this ____, we want you clean cut, well spoken so you represent us in the best possible light. No different than U of I making (was it Tate) take a public speaking course. Like it or not, being covered in tattoos does not say "I'm a intelligence diligent leader". It says "Don't get use to me because I'll be in jail in 6 months". Not saying it is right or wrong, but those are the connections we make in our mind subconsciously.
