"I didn't grow up African American. I grew up middle class."

- So there are no middle class African Americans? You're either one or the other? Didn't Sean grow up middle class? I fail to see how his race has anything to do with this.

These two items suggest to me that Cowherd has a bias. He thinks Sean Taylor always had bad judgment -- from the day he was born. And, it also tells me that he is racist, and/or has a bias concerning race (which is basically the same thing).

Therefore, nothing he says regarding this incident has any credibility.
man those are excellent points. I say we bombard espn with complaints. yeah I know nothing will happen, but maybe we can atleast aggravate the piss out of him/espn. I mean the guy is a real f'n moron. I stopped listening to him along time ago, he is 100% dick.

Re: Colin Cowturd on Sean Taylor

It seems like he's saying because he's Black and grew up making bad decisions he must have continued making them throughout his life. I, like Ghettodog, hate that statement about not growing up African American but him growing up middle class. -I- grew up as what one would say is somewhere between Middle Class and working class and I have made bad decisions yet have had every opportunity that my White counterparts have had. Race isn't and never should have been the issue with ST.

Taylor isn't some thug who was roaming the streets and a victim of violence. I mean the guy was EDUCATED. He was a college student. He wasn't stupid and it pisses me off that people are making him out to be some hoodrat. Its hard to come up from a not nice neighborhood and make something of yourself.

So many people nowadays of all races, bitch about how Black people from the inner city don't better themselves and ST is one of the rare few who DID. Instead of making a quick buck on the corner slinging drugs, he went through high school AND college AND made a career in playing football.

Damn, give the guy a break.

One wonders how ESPN will be able to continue employing a man who has made such an overtly racist comment. If they are as devoted to diversity as Cowherd was claiming, they need to cut him loose.

Re: Colin Cowturd on Sean Taylor

I'm going to write a letter to ESPN letting them now that I will not support their radio station during the time that his show is broadcast. Chip pointed out correctly that, not only is he a jerk, but his knowledge of sports is extremely superficial.

His handling of this tragedy has been despicable and I can only hope that consequences result from it.

Steinberg linked to this piece at Awful Announcing, but in cased you missed it, they echo a lot of the Warpath's sentiments:

I don't know if that would even help. If you take the time to write a letter, ESPN knows you're listening to this clown. It's one of those situations where any pub is good pub. The fact that everyone is pissed off by his insensitive and immature commentary will probably result in higher ratings. The best thing to do is just turn it off. Don't listen. No listeners = No adv. revenue and then he goes away.

Re: Colin Cowturd on Sean Taylor

So, did anyone else hear him admit he was wrong today? For those that didn't hear it, basically he said his job is to opine, sometimes he's aggressive and turns people off, but that's life in talk radio.

He did say that he still believes his original opinions were reasonable based on his past. But at the same time, he was wrong. It's not often he does that.

But then, he took a call from some ditz named Jennifer in California who went on to say that she didn't think Colin was wrong, that Sean Taylor DID wind up involving himself with the wrong crowd, though indirectly from his sister.

His HALF-sister you twit. And no, Taylor DID NOT "involve himself" with the wrong crowd by his HALF-sister dating someone who's brother turned out to be a thug.

Some people still can't stand the fact that this was a random act.

Re: Colin Cowturd on Sean Taylor

I guess it's good that he apologized but I will continue to oppose him in all his insidious forms. His show is the Family Guy to my Cartman:

At least he was man enough to admit that he was wrong.. I still don't have any respect for him because if he was a professional to begin with he would have waited until the facts were out before spewing garbage from his trap..

Yeah at least he admitted he was wrong. I really didn't think he would do that. I'm surprised.

NO it wasn't. This was planned. Plenty of facts point to it.

It was random in the sense that Sean Taylor's past troubles did not lead to his death.

Someone had a frank discussion with his producer last week about the offensive errors of Cowherd's ways. And that's all I'll say about that
