Racist comments from Keith Olbermann on NBC.

Posted on 09/09/2007 4:39:29 PM PDT by afraid

Keith Olbermann just referred to a black player on the Buffalo Bills of playing for a chicken and waffle house.

Good thing his liberal credentials give him a free pass.

I heard that comment but I didn’t understand it. Anyway, I hope Tiki Barber punches him before the season ends.

We have a chicken and waffle house nearby. Why is that racist?

I’ve got it on in the background but missed that. Did he use proper ebonic inflection? or was it just stupid white racist?

Keith is patently stupid..beside being an apparent racist based on that comment, he apparently forgot that Timmy Russert is a HUGH and I mean HUGH Bills fan. and Timmy Russert is way up the pecking order from Olberfella.

Not a good move anyway you figure it.

Having Olberman on as a sports commentator is the height of ignorance. Why would a person with half a brain place a devisive idiot like Olberman in that position. For crying out loud, the guy has the same speech writer as Osama Bin Laden!

I think the waffles would get soggy and I’d be damn afraid of animals eating the chicken. Maybe this is partly to blame for this housing crisis they keep yaking about on the radio.

He is the reflection of Geradlo “The Fake”. NBC is doing just like FNC, trying to force us to watch him. I was going thru the channels the other night, on FNC they said, “stay tuned, for Geraldo’s take on OBL.” Give me a break, went to the weather channel.

During the Patriots/Jets game, one of the announcers said a player looked like a “javelin thrower.” This was just as Randy Moss was catching a 50 yard touchdown pass.

Javelin thrower? That’s a spear chucker isn’t it?

I went back on the TIVO and checked. He was talking about Tom Brady.

Last Week, Chris Matthews called Larry Craig a sexual deviant on his show. I assume the gays won’t be angry at their liberal friend. Just another example.

I have know idea what that even means. I'll wait for UBL to say it in plain English.

Does Olberman think he is the answer to Dennis Miller, because he ain't.

I don't have to imagine it - I KNOW what happened to Rush and he was not even directing his comment towards a black player, he was talking about the attitudes of the MSM towards black players. He was unjustly fired and the media took his comments completely out of context and pilloried him anyway!

soul food at its best, including fried chicken and waffles

Roscoe’s House of Chicken ‘n Waffles is a Hollywood, California-based soul food restaurant chain founded by Herb Hudson, a Harlem native, in 1976. It is best known, as the name states, for serving chicken and waffles, both together and separately, although they do offer more traditional menu items as well.

A fictional version of the restaurant is featured prominently in the 1988 film Tapeheads.

In 2004, a comedy film was released by the same name starring Glenn Plummer, Anthony Johnson, and Clifton Powell.

Could be because he gained his original notoriety as a key anchor on ESPN. Personally, I think he is a jerk.

Remember when Cosell called a small Washington receiver a “speedy litle jackrabbit”?

lol

His career faded into the sunset.

The Bible calls that the ‘scourge of the mouth’.
