Word is Mike Greenberg will not be suspended or even kissed on the wrist. In my opinion he should receive the same punishment as any of his peers who messed up.
Let me preface this by stating I could give a damn about Mike Greenberg. I never use slurs when describing another race. Never, so there’s no way I would slip. He said one of the most disgusting things you could ever say about a Black man in my opinion. His response he garbled his words is straight bogus. There is no shot of coming out with “coon” when saying King. Sorry, it just doesn’t add up. If I could guess, ESPN most likely feels there isn’t any intent with Greenberg because there wasn’t a history of using slurs. Do they have a point? ESPN is trying to protect their product. They hype Mike and Mike every chance they get, so I get it but I sure as hell don’t like it and I’m going to speak on it. Again, it’s the same old backwards ass house nigger mentality that Black writers just don’t get it. The bottom line is all some care about is the money and that has become obvious. Some could care less about Black legacies. You just wanna go with the status quo flow and create this idea there has to be some sort of built in excuses when it comes to Whites slipping up. I’d challenge any of you clowns on this issue. When things even out, I’ll shut up about this. Trust me, I can’t stand writing about race, but if some of us don’t then who will? If folks don’t write it, then it won’t be discussed. If it’s not discussed, then the sheepherders win and history will say so. I’m speaking to a larger issue here and that is because of minute incidents like this, the entire field is affected incident by incident until we will have nothing left. Who stole the soul?
