Screamin' A drops the N-word?

    I can't muster any political outrage, nor do I care about Smith's race and apparent use of the word. I'm just glad we have (more, definitive) evidence that Smith/Bayless are exactly what they seem to be: Shock jocks with no redeeming journalistic value.


    :17 -- Sure sounds like the n-word.

    He definitely said "my n-gga."

    Hey, I thought Herman Cain was supposed to say that!

    He said 'this,' not 'my,' and swallowed the rest. Not clear enough to get him canned.

    Squirmin' Herman is the Screamin-A of the GOP -- the designated "angry black man."

    It's an actual word with 6 letters, and it can be found in Webster's dictionary.


    It's not a virus that will infect your computer.

    When discussing the use of this despicable word, it's OK to actually spell the word out. Discussing the word is not what makes it offensive; using it in virtually any way outside of discussing its meaning does.

    Dancing around the word with such childish phraseology as "N-word" treats it as the grammatical equivalent of a naked vagina photograph or some other visual porn, and it makes the discussion of the word seem cloaked in titters and giggles.

    I'm actually fine with not having it in the thread title, thank you very much. Just as we can't write "fucking" in a thread title.

    I really enjoy that show when Screamin' is on.

    It's purely entertainment, and meant to be fun.

    Unless I missed something, and the "E" in ESPN is for "Journalism?"

    I watched about 10 minutes of it today, and the open contempt SAS shows for Skip Bayless is amusing.

    I interpret their encounters as two guys who are in on the joke, who know that they're just supposed to provide some loudmouth entertainment.

    Rob Parker as a panelist on the other hand . . . total garbage. Called the Red Sox hiring Bobby Valentine "the worst overreaction in the history of professional sports!!!"

    He doesn't get it. That show is all about being able to sell opposing views in interesting ways. Bayless had a "The Bears' defense is KRYPTONITE!!!" rant yesterday that was priceless.

    Wow, reading the above, I guess I really am very far from the business as I once knew it. This show would have been anathema to me a few years ago.

    George Carlin did a whole bit about the topic years ago. Highly amusing.
