He was a damn BROTHA. PERIOD
I grew up watching the Justice League cartoon with Lex Luthor who I, too, assumed is black. When I saw the original Superman movie later with Lex who was this pasty, white guy I was really confused. Then, I was upset later when Spacey played Lex -.-
On Friday, Stephen A. Smith ignited a firestorm while discussing Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice’s two-game suspension for a domestic assault incident. ESPN’s resident bloviator ranted on First Take about the responsibility women have to avoid putting themselves in the same situation that Rice’s then-fiancée Janay Palmer put herself in.
While Smith may have intended to open a broader conversation about domestic abuse, it was an insensitive and demeaning stroke of victim-blaming that failed miserably — and one that laid bare where ESPN is failing its viewership.
Failing its viewership? More like failing humanity.
