Black and White Thinking

Ever-pompous Bryant Gumbel says he won’t be watching the Winter Olympics because there are not enough blacks, and thus the best athletes in the world will not be there. Gumbel says there are so many whites that it looks like a Republican convention.

If Gumbel isn’t canned for his premeditated race-baiting, then the broadcasting gods will have to apologize to Rush Limbaugh, Al Campanis, Jimmy the Greek, and Howard Cosell, who all lost their gigs over verbal racial fumbles.

Oh, wait. Gumbel is black. Never mind.
