Warren Sapp Says Richie Incognito Once Called Him a "N****r" During a Game

Categories: Sports

Incognito's repeated use of the word (including a videotape that is now circulating of him using it at a Fort Lauderdale bar) has added a racial tinge to the bullying controversy.

The Miami Herald carried an odd report sourced from anonymous Dolphins players:

Well, I've spoken to multiple people today about this and the explanation from all of them is that in the Dolphins locker room, Richie Incognito was considered a black guy. He was accepted by the black players. He was an honorary black man.

And Jonathan Martin, who is bi-racial, was not. Indeed, Martin was considered less black than Incognito.

"Richie is honarary," one player who left the Dolphins this offseason told me today. "I don't expect you to understand because you're not black. But being a black guy, being a brother is more than just about skin color. It's about how you carry yourself. How you play. Where you come from. What you've experienced. A lot of things."

We're not sure that racial theory extends much further outside NFL locker rooms, but clearly Incognito was that dopey white guy who thought he had a hood pass because he had black friends.

Chris Rock might have the best take on this subject.

Sounds like Martin was too uppity and well spoken being a Stanford grad and all for the Thugs (Incognito) and the like of the Dolphins.  Problem is would you rather have a team full of thugs that wins and can properly protect your quarterback or a team full of intelligent softies like Martin?  I think along with most fans I would rather win.

I for one [white man] [and I expect many more before this is over] hereby inform all that any word that other Americans use,... I can and will also use whenever I deem it appropriate.   Example of appropriate use of the word:  see Chris Rock UTube: http://youtu.be/f3PJF0YE-x4  

Another example:  MAKES ME WANNA HOLLERbyNathan McCall [born 1955]                 [Prof Afro Am studies - Emory U]Published 1994page 12

“Every now and then, if one of us dared to cut up in public, Mama would yank him firmly by one arm, pull him to within an inch of her face, and whisper through clenched teeth, "Stop showing your color. Stop acting like a njgger!"

Um...can we PLEASE have Incognito back. I don't care who he calls what or what he calls who...if the guys on the dolphins don't care and they are black, then i definitely don't care. Martin couldn't handle football...Incognito obviously can. I NEED AN OFFENSIVE LINE!!!! NOT A SENSITIVITY TRAINING SO FEELINGS AREN'T HURT!!!! THIS ISN'T BASEBALL!
