NFL double standard?

I have been watching the hypocrisy of the NFL trying to rein in their misogynistic, uber-violent, spoiled player’s for a host of wrongs. The Peterson case is especially interesting. He beat his kid with some sort of switch. I don’t condone child beating. But given the NFL’s troubled racial history I have to ask the question, if this were a white quarterback would he have had the book thrown at him in the same way Peterson has? Would Tom Brady been lost for the season as Peterson has?
