I hope you remember a few months back when Stu Scott defended rappers for their use of the word ho by calling the word a term of endearment. Well The One Eyed Bandit is back at it again.
In a recent chat (transcribed into ESPN the Mag) Scott takes a very interesting stance….
Emailer: Stuart, you say Pacman isn’t a bad guy, but Imus’ words reflect who he is? Whats the difference?
Stu: ” I didn’t say Imus was a bad person. I do think he’s racist and sexist”
“That makes him a flawed person, like Pacman.”
“Personally, though, I’LL TAKE PACMANS INDISCRETIONS OVER THOSE OF IMUS”
Umm what? You’re saying being involved in violent acts and terrorizing entire cities are less harmful than stupid words? This comment just blows my mind, and it blows my mind that ESPN even published the asinine comments.
Can someone please just shut Scott the hell up??? I’m pretty sure 90% of America has been saying this for about 10 years now.
