The No Celebrating Rule


in American football is racist.  This occurred to me today when I saw it enforced during a college football game.  It brought back memories of how annoyed people around me would be when I was a kid and the player celebrated after a touchdown.  I remembered it as being an annoyance with black players, specifically.  I realize the “excessive celebration” did get out of hand, and lasted too long, but I just don’t think it would ever have been an issue if all the players were white.  Certainly I can’t be positive of this, but that’s what I remember.  That’s all.
