Joe Rose, Jorge Sedano, Sid Rosenberg are racists

Luther "Luke" Campbell, the man whose booty-shaking madness made the U.S. Supreme Court stand up for free speech, gets as nasty as he wants to be for Miami New Times. This week, Campbell wonders when Jacory Harris will get his due.

The sports media in South Florida is really one-sided. None of the sports talk show hosts — Joe Rose, Jorge Sedano, and Sid Rosenberg — has anything to say about University of Miami quarterback Jacory Harris. Now that he is performing well, these guys should give him his due. They can't deal with a young African-American doing an excellent job.

Last year and before this season began, I read a lot of articles and blogs that claimed all the players whom former head coach Randy Shannon had recruited from Miami Northwestern High School were failures. That's a bunch of BS. Those seven kids will play in the NFL when they leave school. Just look at the magic that Harris is creating with his former Northwestern teammate Tommy Streeter, a phenom at wide receiver whose time at the University of Miami was wasted by the previous offensive coordinator, Mark Whipple. Indeed, Whipple is the reason Harris played so poorly prior to this year. But you never heard the Roses, Rosenbergs, and Sedanos criticize Whipple with the tenacity they exhibited when going after Harris and Shannon.

UM alum Michael Irvin had a message for the media: If you're going to criticize me, praise me with the same intensity. I want see them praise Harris with the same force they used to vilify him. South Florida's sports reporters need to wake up. Jacory Harris deserves the type of credit that ESPN is giving San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith, who is white. Everyone wrote Smith off before Jim Harbaugh became his coach this year. Now the young man is leading an undefeated team and finally living up to expectations.

Harris deserves the same type of coverage. But he won't get it because the lily-white sports pundits don't want to see kids like him succeed. To them, black quarterbacks are inept. Sportswriters and talking heads have a tendency to make African-American athletes the villains. It doesn't help that there are only a token number of black sports journalists in the industry. Heck, there are no African-American sportswriters at the Miami Herald, Sun-Sentinel, or Palm Beach Post covering the Hurricanes or Dolphins.

Just look at how the media has treated Miami Dolphins coach Tony Sparano. He has gone 7-9 the past two seasons, but he always got a pass because he's a "nice guy." No one was calling for his head until the Dolphins started the season 0-4. It is a double standard I find repulsive.

You are just like every other black idiot that cries about racism. It's disgusting. There is just as much reverse discrimination. Where do you stand when that happens? Nowhere because you are an idiot buffoon that makes up racist crap where it does not exist. 100% idiot.

Ummm.Jacory didn t do so great overall in 2011.Just better than 2010.I don t think 6-6 is much to brag about.Statistically...he s not bad....I agree.However...late in games.....consistently...he doesn t have the mental toughness.Sorry can t give credit Luke if it s not deserved or accurate.I see the truth/the reality.Harris will not go down as 1 of the great QB s at the U.Morris might...but that still remains to be seen.Just because you guys are brothers don t make inaccuracy turn into fact.I like QB s who can get the U to the National Championship.That s my criteria.See ya.

Aunt Luke, the boy who cried racism. New Times, please can this imbecile.

P.S. What Rakim, Kool G Rap, & Big Daddy Kane were to hip-hop, you were the EXACT opposite. Luke will just label me a hater & think I'm a racist, typical of any single-digit IQ moron

You got the rise you were looking for out of me Luke. Living in South Florida for the last 10 years and going to UM, I've seen the deterioration of an athletic program first hand, working there for years. Jacory Harris has the skills and tools yes, but he's a terribly inconsistent QB. Some games he looks great, others he looks terrible. Most college QB's have the ability to throw the deep ball, the ability to zip a pass to the sideline and the smarts to know the right throw. The difference between all of them is consistency, and Jacory doesn't have it.

I very much doubt you believe the words you write, because they hold no facts or evidence and you seem to have a solid head on your shoulders to know that. You write what grabs attention ... a solid business model you know very well. Congrats on building the brand of an outspoken black columnist not afraid to speak your mind.

But shame on you. You've been given so much in this world that so many wish they could have and rather than write insightful, motivating pieces, you use your words to tear others down. Too often, I see your negative, opinionated headlines on the Yahoo local section and even though it bothers me you take this route, I think down the road when you look back at your career and your mark on the world we live in, it's going to bother you too.

Stay positive Luke. Good luck going forward.

How funny to hear this ape refer to anyone else as a racist. Reporters have no obligation to cover any paticular athlete. Luther Campell turns peole into racists. He make it pleasant to read about the drive buy shooting in the mud ghettos. I am so glad that these apes replaced the KKK and murder each other I just hope they pick up the pace and this piece of mud crap ends up on the menu for destruction.

This breed is only good for target practice.

Puke, as always you are a fucking idiot. As always you bring out the race card. The only reason these guys came down on Harris was because he was playing shitty.As was the whole team. NOT because of his color you stupid dumbfuck. Puke, you are the most miserable excuse for a human being in the world. You want to stir shit up wher there is no problems. YOU are nothing. YOU do not matter. YOUR people know you for what you are. A fucking worthless piece of shit NIGGER.

Dear Luther -

I hope you get sued for defamation of character. Anyone that is willing to make such sensationalized claims without getting the facts straight doesn't deserve this kind of forum, let alone a position in public office. You really screwed yourself on this one.

I love luther campbell but sometimes he says some dumb sh#t. I have heard all three radio host praise him for putting together a good couple of games . Also they have critized whippel countless times and talked about how hard it is to be the hometown kid with all the preasure that jacory had on his shoulders. He was also deserving of the critisism because he was really bad and you cant blame only on the offensive coordinator and media and the 49rs are not undefeated by the way.

Random

Harris has dragged himself up by the bootstraps to become...a very mediocre quarterback. Its as simple as that. its not that the people you mentioned dont want to praise him, but really, what is there to praise? Hes better than he has been in past years, but that isnt really saying much. instead of wondering why they arent praising a black quarterback, maybe wonder why they should praise him as a quarterback at all.

Aunt Lucy

You are a moron. Who gave you a forum to write anything. Omar Kelly is black and works for the Sun-Sentinel. Alex Smith and the 49ers are not undefeated. Why are you blaming the "white" offensive coordinator for Streeter and Harris not succeeding? Why don't you blame the "black" head coach in Randy Shannon? Apparently face down ass up is the way you view sports. Go make music and leave the commentary to those who know.

The only theme in all your "articles" is racism. Why don't you write one on child support?

Aldo Ribeiros

Two things:1. Can't speak for Rosenburg or Rose but this is completely false when it comes to Sedano.2. Omar Kelly from the Sun-Sentinel who covers the Dolphins and does probably the best job out of all beat writers, is black.3. Tony Sparano and Jeff Ireland have been in the hot seat ever since their second 7-9 season. The majority wanted and still wants them gone including Ross, which tried to replace Sparano before the season. Get your facts straight Luke because you sound like your reaching and misinformed to say the least.

Other than Sedano repeatedly supporting Jacory Harris and praising him, the 49ers and Alex Smith not being undefeated, multiple African American sportswriters covering the Dolphins and 'Canes, and Stephen Ross clumsily trying to replace Sparano last summer, this article is basically accurate.

Where do I start?

"No one was calling for his head until the Dolphins started the season 0-4."

Everyone in South Florida wanted his head after all of his fist pumping for field goals while the Dolphins were losing last year. That was even before 0-4.

“Jacory Harris deserves the type of credit that ESPN is giving San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith, who is white.

-Everyone still thinks Alex Smith sucks.

“Everyone wrote Smith off before Jim Harbaugh became his coach this year. Now the young man is leading an undefeated team and finally living up to expectations.”

-No one wrote off Harbaugh. For god's sake Stephen Ross boarded a plane and went to San Francisco to beg Jim Harbaugh (a college coach) to come and coach the Dolphins. This adds to the point above.

“an undefeated team and finally living up to expectations”

-The 49ers are 5-1.

“Harris deserves the same type of coverage. But he won't get it because the lily-white sports pundits don't want to see kids like him succeed.”

-Do you not remember the Harris for Heisman campaign? Or is there a statue of limitations on praise?

“Heck, there are no African-American sportswriters at the Miami Herald, Sun-Sentinel, or Palm Beach Post covering the Hurricanes or Dolphins.”

-SHANDEL RICHARDSON…I’ll leave you the link to his blog which is easily accessible on their front page.http://blogs.sun-sentinel.com/...

“None of the sports talk show hosts — Joe Rose, Jorge Sedano, and Sid Rosenberg — has anything to say about University of Miami quarterback Jacory Harris.”

-Jorge Sedano is always defending Jacory. This comment is just frankly retarded.

Maybe you should spend more time writing something that makes sense…or maybe being a better Defensive Coordinator or w/e you are at Northwestern.

Heres another link for you to chew on:http://rivals.yahoo.com/highsc...

Waaa WAAA WAAAA! Its because we are blackBullshit! Stop playing the race card!Get off your lazy asses and make something of your selves instead of making more babies. For crying out loud, the President is black. The leading REPUBLICAN candidate is black!Both of those leaders along with the race baiters like Jackson and Sharpton need to point the finger at all the lack of integrity in the black communities. Stop the handouts and get to work. Any kind of work beats a government handout. The first baby born out of wedlock gets you a free vasectomy and tubes tied. Black or white.Man up and take responsibility for the downfall of your communities!

apparently luke was not in miami when frank costa or even brock berlin were qb's at the U. Two guys who got beat up daily. Throwing out the race card - at every turn - and in trivial and errant matters as these, does a serious disservice to those facing actual discrimination. Shame on you for being so wrong and shame on you attempting to stand on the shoulders of meritorious leaders and civic leaders who gave their lives for issue of race. How embarrassing for you.

How can it be racism when the best starters are black? These are young kids who have to be developed into mature human beings while learning to accept the kudos and criticism of the fans, some of whom are simple louts....The good coach will help them and their parents have to help also.... A learned reaction and reply to the media questions is part of the process.... A mistake should not be a sign of great failure when victory is part skill, part luck, part officiating, part injury, part good health...... The close observer can tell when a player is not feeling well, especially the QB.....look at the technical stuff and hone in on the individual skills

Racist? Sid...Maybe, Rose...No, Sedano...Hell no! I can care less about Sid and Rose but Sedano...that's just plain stupid. Anyone who listens to the guy in the mornings can tell you unequivocally that he's not racist. You can say unfair or selective (as the media usually is) but that's to be expected. I think Luke was looking for another word. Dan LeBatard made a great point, the other day, about Bryant Gumbel's reference to slavery when describing the NBA commissioner's treatment of players. Without that reference, there is no story or buzz surrounding Gumbel's comments. This brings me to my point. Although effective, not everyone can use this tactic successfully. Coming from Luke, it sounds dumb and uninformed. But then again, that's also to be expected.

Harris is a mediocre at best qb, when a-holes like Luke dont get things thier way, they only have the racist card, sad brainless twit, go back to doing your crack and making terrible what u call music.

MiamiReid

Luke? Maybe YOU are the racist? I have heard Joe Rose praise Jacory Harris and his performance this year many times. Reporting that a player is having a bad year when he really is,is not villification.It's called criticism,there is a difference. If a white QB had performed as badly as Harris did last year,he would have received the same negative comments,and probably more.Harris certainly did play badly the last two years.That's a fact.As it turns out, it looks like his old Coach Randy Shannon was a terrible coach who never developed any of his players.Sam Shields just got a Super Bowl ring at Green Bay and Shannon didn't even let the man play.It's not the presses fault that Randy Shannon was a bad head coach.I am glad for Jacory Harris. I thought it was a mistake for Coach Golden when he decided to start Harris over Morris. I was wrong.

Another misinformed idiot. How do you think Sam Shields became a cornerback? At first he was a wide receiver but wasn't productive so they switched him to corner and he started every game at corner. People need to get their facts straight. Understanding the "EXPERTS" on here hated Shannon but I'm sure at the end of the day he will be fine and UM will still be searching for another coach when al lets you all down....... LOL

MiamiReid

Moron, I know that Sam Shields started at cornerback his last year.The point was that Shannon never coached Sam or any other player worth a damn. Jacory Harris is the prime example of that.That's the first thing the Greenbay coaches said about Shields. He looked like he had never been coached at all. That's after he had played a year at the position.Saying that Shannon was a bad coach doesn't make me a hater,it was the truth.You assuming that I am a hater makes you just a dumb ass.How many people have lined up to hire randy Shannon,you jackass.You can predict the future? You KNOW that Golden is going to let us down? he may get hired away by Penn State,yes. Let us down here? Not bloody likely dummy.
