Richard Sherman Stereotyped as a "Thug" by Sports Media

Richard Sherman is a success story. Born in Compton, California, he didn’t let his violent inner-city neighborhood chew him up. The Seattle Seahawks superstar scored 1400 on the SAT and graduated from high school with a 4.2 grade-point average, which earned him salutatorian status. His crowning a…
