Former Kansas City Star Scribe Trolls Culture War Suckers With 'Race Hoax' Hot Take
We feel sorry for anybody who takes the missive of a former local sports hack seriously or wastes more than a few hundred characters on the publicity stunt.
The former Kansas City Star scribe has made a career of a single trick: Cleverly inserting himself into the mire of racially charged debate in a way that angers virtually every side.
A recent example:
Fox News: Jason Whitlock claims leaked George Floyd footage shows early narrative of his death was a 'race hoax'
There's no real analysis or insight, just a bunch of white dudes who mistakenly thing this hyper-successful scribe is offering them encouragement in opposition to "woke" college students anger tweeting and ruining the lunch their mom carefully packed for them.
We can only credit Mr. Whitlock with remarkably astute insight into this ongoing American debate in order to pick the perfect words to draw more attention to himself and his latest venture . . . Given that self-aggrandizement not social justice has always been his chief concern.
You decide . . .
