Political Correctness Rules at ESPN
"I had no right to say that." "Yes, you did."
I was flabbergasted when I heard the two audiotapes of ESPN's Paul Finebaum having to publicly apologize after saying that "this country does not oppress black people". This, of course, was part of the discussion on Colin Kaepernick.
I have said many times that America was, indeed, a racist country when I was growing up in the 1950s and 1960s. I do not consider it a racist country today, rather a country with racial issues and divisions that need to be overcome. I stand by that. I will also stand by this:
America today does not oppress black people-or anybody else. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, ESPN.
