When keeping in real goes wrong: Az NAACP edition

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Evil ... Thy name is Orville Redenbacher!!, Jan 31, 2016.

  1. There are so many things wrong here.

    OMG: NAACP leader uses F-word to apologize for using T-word after N-word meeting

    In the course of the apology he drops the F bomb.
    He's resigned.

    Give him a break. He's one of the best God damned people in the state.

    The guy hasn't resigned, by the way. He's hoping to ride this out. Good luck with that.

    Actual quote from a reporter in my shop this week: "On the record, he says he's 'deeply sorry.' Off the record he says 'How many time do I have to fucking apologize to you fucking people?'"

    Whites is a color

    What's the AP style guide say about the NAACP? Do you always spell it out on the first reference or is Colored People more inappropriate than a fact?

    DAMNIT! You people around here know me too well.

    BTW, I didn't find a "good"'photo, i.e. ample cleavage. Every photo I found was rather disappointingly conservative.

    Suffice it to say... plenty of us in Phoenix were surprised to discover that too. His predecessor was an African-American minister and was much more high-profile. I remember the previous guy leaving the post, but hadn't seen a thing about his replacement until now.
