Stephen A. Smith denies using racial slur while talking about Kobe Bryant, tape says otherwise
New York Daily News ^ | October 25, 2012 | Bob Raissman

Stephen A. Smith’s motor mouth placed him in the eye of controversy Thursday, but the ESPN yakker denied dropping the N-word while discussing Kobe Bryant on “First Take.”

On the show, Smith sarcastically pooh-poohed the idea that Bryant would miss the Lakers’ opener because of a foot injury.

Listening to a replay of SAS’ commentary provides evidence that he voiced the slur.

“Opening night, Kobe Bryant is going to miss it because my foot is sprained? Are you crazy? (N-word) please,” Smith said.

So ridiculous. That is a common phrase used in jest.

I notice among the youth, many of them post “nigga” this and “nigga” that in their comments on Facebook.

It doesn’t even have racist meanings any more. They say it without a second thought, and none of their black friends act offended in the least.

And poets such as Juicy J, 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne have been known to express their emotions in such a lyrical manner.

I don’t know who this guy is but I guess he read’s too many internet memes cause the ‘n***er please’ one is quite popular, but of course for lefties always on the lookout to be outraged its a shock...oh the huge manity!

Just google image search the term and you’ll see what I mean, don’t want to get FR in trouble so not going to post them here.

WTG, Stephen...can we FINALLY dispense with the so-called “N-word” nonsense once and for all? they say it all the time, but claim it is a deeply hateful, racist word when The Man says it. Enough.

“It doesn’t even have racist meanings any more. They say it without a second thought, and none of their black friends act offended in the least.”

You're not supposed to confuse the issue with the facts - don't you know? It'll take all the fun out of race-baiting and the media sympathy that comes with it.

Wait, he’s black and it’s not ok for him to say that? He must be a republican then.

SA Smith is black...so nothing will happen to him

If it was a White guy...ESPN would have fired him by now

ESPN, and most of sports media...are left wing liberal like the news and entertainment divisions. ESPN probably the worst

With Black Racists/White Guilt Liberals....blacks can use “ni@@a” but not whites

It's black ghetto slang for "Give me a break!"

Chris Rock even spoofed it on his show a few years ago.

There’s more clapping in that music video than a Florida Marlins’ home game.

So what. Someone said nigger.

Big D. Grow up and act like a grown up.

Blacks say it all the time.

I find the words "African American" offensive!

1. They've never been to Africa.

2.They never will.

3. That term divides them from being an American!

The only reason this is getting any press is because SAS is a right-minded REAL MAN. Dude was on Mark Levin railing against Obama’s welfare state. He is one of us!
