Dave Zirin: The Jameis Winston Situation

"College football culture will place a black man on a pedestal as long as he can deliver bragging rights, championships, and millions of dollars in revenue to small-town colleges and universities. Off the football field, or after your playing career ends, good luck. If Florida’s system of criminal justice has sent any discernable message this past year, it is this: if you are an African American teenager, you want to be Jameis Winston, not Trayvon Martin."
