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

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.
