Richard Sherman: Russell Wilson 'black enough' story is 'made up'
Seattle has a few thoughts on all this race talk.
The past week saw the emergence of a bizarre storyline: the national media piling onto Russell Wilson for almost unheard of reasons.
A report from Bleacher Report claimed Wilson's teammates didn't believe he was "black enough" (though no one was specifically quoted on saying that) and ESPN's Kenny Mayne furthered the report by confirming turmoil within the locker room.
"Nobody in here said that," Sherman said. "It's made up."
Wilson had a similar response, though he didn't directly contradict the veracity.
"Black enough? I don't even know what that means," Wilson said. "I'm just an educated, well-spoken male."
The Seahawks were under siege from the media the past week or so. A report from ESPN also indicated Seattle wanted Wilson to tone down his endorsements.
The reality is winning cures everything. If the Seahawks were 5-1 we don't hear these things. 3-3 will do that to you, which makes their victory over the Panthers on Sunday even more important.
