Hear ESPN’s Dan Le Batard rip apart his racist listeners on air
« on: September 12, 2017, 07:55:25 PM »
Listen here

Just like the world of U.S. politics, the American sports community is dealing with the national virus that is racism. ESPN radio host Dan Le Batard experienced it first hand on Wednesday after he broke the news of Michael Bennett’s arrest on his radio program.

Le Batard read Bennett’s statement on the incident, one in which he describes being racially profiled and treated with excessive force by Las Vegas police following the Mayweather-McGregor fight last month.

Instead of hearing compassion or empathy from his listeners, Le Batard’s ESPN studio was flooded with hate mail and angry texts. Le Batard read a brief sample of the outrage.

Le Batard said he would prefer indifference from his listeners than the fury he heard. “None of you would want this. If it were you on the end of those handcuffs, man, this is not what you would want to be met with,” he said. “If it was you who had been treated unfairly, who came home after work and told your wife, or your parents, how you were treated unfairly, you would not want their response to be, ‘Prove it.'”

 :tongue2: some of US feel the same way as many of these angry white people do who replied to his commentary.  :brickwall:

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.


As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
