Don’t say “kneecap him” if he’s Italian-American
January 10, 2008 § 1 Comment
Some random anchor chick was suspended because :
Faldo and Tilghman were discussing young players who could challenge the world’s No. 1 player toward the end of Friday’s broadcast at Kapalua when Faldo suggested that “to take Tiger on, maybe they should just gang up for a while.”
“Lynch him in a back alley,” Tilghman replied
Right, right. “Lynch”. We get it already. Shoulda said “kneecap” or “mug” and that woulda been okay right? Everyone knows that letting “lynch” slip out of your mouth means exactly the same thing as if you say “nigger”.
Wait, check that. She was really suspended because:
Sharpton spoke earlier on CNN’s “Prime News” and continued to push for her firing, saying he wanted to meet with Golf Channel because the comments were “an insult to all blacks.”
“Lynching is not murder in general, it’s not assault in general,” Sharpton said. “It’s a specific racial term that this women should be held accountable for. What she said is racist. Whether she’s a racist … is immaterial. She’s a broadcaster. The channel has to be accountable to the public.”
Shut. Up. Al. And the rest of you, stop thinking that Al Sharpton speaks for everyone with brown skin.
News farkin flash.
Tiger “Cablasian” Woods is not, by any appearances, one of Al’s GenUwine African-American constituents. He has a sense of humor where this sort of thing is concerned, doesn’t go off half-cocked and keeps above the stupid shit.
Kinda like Barack Obama, another…
