Cowherd gets racist
« on: July 24, 2015, 01:10:32 pm »
I've always thought Cowherd is the biggest Troll on Sports Radio. He will always side with the favourite and every time I listen to him he's always talking about how smart and successful he is.

Well perhaps he's finally stepped in it here.

Quote
“The game is too complex? I’ve never bought into that, ‘Baseball’s just too complex,’ ” Cowherd said. “Really? A third of the sport is from the Dominican Republic.” Here’s the full context of Cowherd’s comments, in which he says the country isn’t known for its “world-class academic abilities.”

So basically Latinos are Souf Dum.  :lol

I wonder if Cuban-American Colleague Dan Le Batard has anything to say about this today.

I'd like to see Fox rip their offer to this gasbag and he doesn't appear on National Radio ever again.

One can hope.

The Canadian race isn't know for its academic abilities.

It'd be hilarious, if it wasn't so disturbing, how obsessed everyone in this country has become over racist or, more importantly, PERCEIVED racist things.  It's like the stupid Hulk Hogan thing - who cares?  Hulk Hogan has been an absurd personality for over 30 years now, he's not some world leader.  He's some silly pro wrestler - Why does anyone over the age of 10 even care what Hulk Hogan says or does anyway? So what if he's slightly racist by his own admission?  Society can still function just fine with him in it, he can function in the WWE with black co-workers, just like Riley Cooper is apparently at least slightly racist but he's still able to function on his football team with black teammates.
Grow up, America.

Having said all that, that kinda is a stupid statement by Cowherd and his logic a bit nonsensical.

Its a 3rd world country. 3rd world countries aren't really known for their academics. 

Not everything is about race.

Why would Cowherd even say such an idiotic thing? Not sure if Jason Smith was joking or not about Cowherd moving over to Fox Sports Radio but maybe he thought it would be a last goodbye blast to ESPN? Dude, if so, that shit still follows you. What a moron.

It really is a dumb statement, and doesn't even make sense - I'm sure all of the guys coming into the NFL out of Alabama are all Rhodes scholars, that's why they can grasp that complex game of foosball.

It also confuses intelligence with education. Cowherd is shitty.

It is a stupid statement, definitely, but not racist or bigoted. He mentioned academics, not intelligence. Academics to me suggests education, and there may or may not be quality education in the DR, I really don't know. But education and intelligence are two completely different things. They compliment each other, but are completely separate. Now if he had said players from the DR were less intelligent, I suppose an argument for racism could be made. But this, no way. People need to lighten up.

Glad we all agree that Cowherd is most certainly a rather large maroon.
