Last night, Russell Wilson led the Seattle Seahawks in 43-8 victory at Super Bowl XLVIII.  Russell Wilson became the second black quarterback to start and win the Super Bowl.

Wilson—whose grandfather, Harry B. Wilson, Jr. is a former president of the historically Black university Norfolk State University—joins Doug Williams, who was the first black quarterback to start and win a Super Bowl when he played for Washington.

Wilson finished 18-of-25 for 206 yards, two touchdowns and no turnovers.

Although Wilson didn’t win MVP, I think he’ll still be proud to have made Black History!

    But Broncos did not seem to get that if you stop Lynch, you then have to force turnovers just to stay in the game. The Hawks had no turnovers (Int or fumbles) and moved the chains through the air and mixed in the run nicely. So many people that watch the Superbowl are dependent on the tv people to tell them what is happening.

    LeAnna … are you in New Orleans?
