If some of Limbaugh's statements are going to come back to haunt him during his quest to be a part owner of an NFL team, these are the statements that I think should be used.
It's a white Republican, Rush Limbaugh, who is saying Blacks have not advanced in 40 years.
I was listening to the show when he said it. Here's a link, although some people may not like the source.
Limbaugh: We know that technological advancement is going along at light speed. And yet during this period of time, whether it be the last 57 years or be it the last 20 years, it seems that a majority of the black population has remained angry, frustrated, and behind. They've been left behind. They are acting like they've been left behind, and of course we've heard that this is because of racism, natural systemic institutional racism in America, that we are unfair, that this country is just horrible and rotten.
When there are statistics that directly contradict this statement, and when Limbaugh, himself, has railed against liberals, particularly Black liberals, who state that Blacks have not gained anything, then I have to ask why the statement ISN'T race baiting.
In my opinion, what Limbaugh said about McNabb wasn't racist. It was a statement about the media, however, it was wrong. There are many examples of the media praising quarterbacks who really don't deserve it. For example, right now I think Tony Romo is one of them.
But, to me, this is a major comment that should cause the team owners to look askance:
Look it, let me put it to you this way. The NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.
There are other ways to say the antics of the game is doing damage to the game. To call the behavior gang behavior without the guns?
Frankly, it's the 50 years comment that sets me off, even more than the gang comment.
But that's just me.
