Either Way, It's Racism and It Doesn't Go Away

June 06, 1987

When Al Campanis got suckered into making his "racist" comments on "Nightline," the black community called for his head on a platter.

What is the sports world going to do about Rodman's and Thomas' racist attacks on Larry Bird? Is racism racism only when it is directed at blacks? I don't think so.

As an American Jew (who gets it for being white as well as Jewish, not to forget left-handed), I am outraged and disgusted by the hypocrisy demonstrated here.

Rodman and Thomas should both spend the rest of their sports careers playing golf with Al Campanis.
