Of course, I don’t know the young man…but I’m not so sure this is a product of “someone telling lies” as it is simple perception.
If he’s college aged (19-20), you have to wonder what QB at Arkansas he would have seen in his limited lifetime of watching them. Off the top of my head, I don’t remember anyone since Robert Johnson’s limited playing time - what - 15 years ago? So, for this young student, he’s just never seen it and probably assumed we had not had a QB of color.
We all know about assumptions and the care one must make before making one…but this is something he has yet to learn.
