Alleged racial slur at Coors was an overreaction

Guy was yelling at the Rockies' mascot to get a picture. He was thought to have yelled the "n word" at one of the Marlins' players. This non-incident got as much press as a mass murder.

Similar to the "noose" in a Watkins Glen garage a few years ago.

I was watching Sportscenter right after this game was on.

You would have thought the end of the world was upon us. They were trying like hell to find someone with racial bonafides to comment on the sad state of affairs in the U.S.

Idiots

You can blame that BS on Bubba Wallace and his team. The noose that wasn't, was in that garage years before Wallace was assigned to it. It was just a way to play up the victim card. Wallace does not belong in a Cup car, unlike most guys who constantly run mid pack or worse he is on a well funded team the puts decent equipment on the track. He was decent in the truck series, moved up to Xfinity and did nothing driving for another well funded team that has over 100 Cup wins to it's name. Guys that suck in the Xfinity series don't get full time Cup rides unless they were stuck in noncompetitive equipment. That wasn't the case, seems like we have affirmative action Nascar style.

Liberal POS Msn now has this on the front page linking to a USA Today with an article whose author claimed after watching over and over again the guy did not say Dinger. It is amazing how sources that used to just report news 25 years ago do nothing but spew liberalism.
