Ex-NFL Player Dexter Manley Apologizes for Black Quarterback Joke


You have to watch what you say on live television. It's a lesson some have to learn the hard way.

During segment discussing quarterbacks, former NFL defensive end Dexter Manley stated that black ones were more mobile because they were used to running from the law. 

Manley quickly realized his mistake and apologized shortly after. 

"I made a comment about this black quarterback stuff," Manley stated. "I do apologize and, you know, I say some things I don't think about sometimes."

Sometimes it's ok to take that extra second to think things through.
