Saturday on MSNBC’s “Up With Steve Kornacki,” NBC sportscaster Bob Costas offer a critique of how the U.S. mainstream media handles race issue starting with the example of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
He said Sterling coverage was a “low hanging fruit thing” and argued, “Who doesn’t think that what Donald Sterling said and what his record reveals about him is unacceptable?”
Costas challenged Kornacki saying “I think some people who work in this building ought to accept up and say that’s a bunch of politically correct BS.”
Costas continued along those line and said , “Historically the narrative of white racism and the oppression of black Americans is the overriding truth. It’s the single greatest stain on our national history. It is still part of narrative. But that narrative is much more complex now. And some of the issues that are afflicting black america are not the result of white racism.”
