BOTH BLACK AND WHITE PEOPLE DESPISE JASON WHITLOCK AND THAT'S WHY HE'S ONE OF THE GREATEST COLUMNISTS EVER TO EMERGE FROM KANSAS CITY!!!
A great many Kansas City journalism aficionados will read an EPIC screed about this town's most celebrated sportswriter and have their perceptions confirmed . . . WHATEVER they might have been . . .
10K words dedicated to any working columnist might be some kind of record . . . Here's the COMPREHENSIVE analysis of all things related to Big Sexy . . .
Deadspin: Can Jason Whitlock Save ESPN's "Black Grantland" From Himself?
That's a lot of bandwidth and a great many words dedicated to a guy who has earned the derision of just about every media pundit in the metro and every sports dude throughout the nation.
Unfortunately, in Kansas City all of the sports newsies are white so there won't be any discussion of the most interesting aspects of this piece because their racial sensibilities are so misguided that they're actually dangerous . . . Especially Steve St. John.
But the Deadspin screed lays out a few interesting ideas . . .
- Many African-American sports enthusiasts regard Jason Whitlock as an Uncle Tom because of his constant criticism of Black culture and because he's downright fierce when it comes to African-American women.
- On the opposite edge of the same sword, so many white dudes dislike him for a lot of reasons but mostly because he's a big Black guy with strong opinions.
- And again, journalists HATE HIM because they claim to be so much smarter than the guy DESPITE THE FACT that he keeps cashing HUGE paychecks year after year which dwarf most newsie pay.
For the record . . . TKC thinks he's great and he just might be one of our heroes after this Deadspin d-bag wrote what is tantamount to the greatest sportswriter bromance love letter this century. . . Meanwhile, RealTKCHeadlines is on the verge of an aneurism because nobody thinks much of his constant criticism of a blog he reads throughout the day, EVERY DAY for the past two weeks at least.
