I'm not sure but is that the same guy that was on Glee before hassling the glee club, he was also on the football team and is the same build. Also, i'm not sure that the decision to put him with Mercedes was necesarilly racial, he may have just fit with what they were thinking. The fact that Sam and Mercedes were dating last season on the downlow was very interesting though, I would not have guessed that pairing (and no its not racial) but thought it was a nice little surprise when it happened.

The big black girl can't date the pretty white boy, she has to be with the big black guy.

Oh that Glee, always breaking boundaries.
