Sports fans are on the whole the worst when it comes to race.

Had it been a Hispanic player who had a twitter history favorable to a violent separatist movement that advocated the murder of white people but then apologized claiming to have been young and he really didn't mean it... I'm sure he gets a standing ovation from that crowd in Milwaukee.


Or not. Which is the point. "Kids will be Kids" is one of the most selectively applied concepts in American life. Minorities and poor need not apply...

Well to be fair, I think they were applauding him for his apology, not for the racist tweets.

But RCC is correct. The reaction would probably be a lot different.

Right. Except for presidential "advisor" Sharpton, for example.
