    49ers color analyst suspended over perceived racially insensitive comment

    I'm putting this here because it has to do with football but if it gets too wild, feel free to move to politics.
    Analyst Tim Ryan suspended by 49ers for Lamar Jackson ‘dark skin’ comment


    Could he have worded this better? Yeah. But is it anything to get worked up about? No.

    If there were a sport where the ball was a similar color to white people's skin and someone said that it's difficult to see the ball against their skin and white jersey, I don't think any white people would be offended by that.

    EDIT: Here's what he actually said:
    “He’s really good at that fake, Lamar Jackson, but when you consider his dark skin color with a dark football with a dark uniform, you could not see that thing,” Ryan said Monday on KNBR-AM (690) in San Francisco. “I mean, you literally could not see when he was in and out of the mesh point, and if you’re a half step slow on him in terms of your vision, forget about it, he’s out of the gate.”

    You can't say that in today's world. We're in cancel culture bro. People are offended by everything. And to your point, that comment was racists as hell. It was funny as well.

          so acknowledging that the color of the football, color of his skin and color of the jersey are all dark is racist?

          you people can go fuck yourselves.

            It's funny, I've always said if I had a say, my team's jerseys would be the exact brown color of the ball and their shoes would be bright yellow like the flags.

                  Treating black people differently = offensive and racist
                  Treating black people the same = offensive and racist
                  Acknowledging black people's race or skin tone = offensive and racist
                  Not acknowledging black people's race or skin tone = offensive and racist

                    when white folks sunbathe, is that racist?

                    when Trump plays basketball, is it racist to point out its tough to see the ball against his skin?

                                    Here's a serious question. What's considered racist in your mind? As I said, the comment doesn't bother me. Hell, I laughed when I saw the article.

However, you have to be stupid to think you can get away with that comment in San Francisco, California. He may not be racist, but he's dumb as fuck.

                                      Old white males are superior to everyone else.

                                      Mazeppa is older than me, so he's superior to me (I'm assuming Mazeppa is white and male).

                                                  I consider something racist when a particular race is looked at being inferior because of the race (since that is the definition)

                                                  I don't consider it racist when someone points out a particular trait that is true.

                                                  My skin is more red or Native American look that most. If someone said "hey your skin is red", I don't think that's an issue at all. If they said "you must be an alcoholic because your skin is red, that's a bit racist.

                                                      It shouldn't be but these days it is. People are on the edge of their seats just waiting to be offended so they can react. They don't even think it out but when they hear anything race related... "Bingo! I got one!"

                                                      Is it racist for the lighting guy on the TV news set to say, "We need more lights for the Afro-American broadcaster because his skin absorbs light instead of reflecting it like the white guy's does."

                                                        The football should be brown for the 1st half and white for the 2nd half so it's fair.

                                                            Actually, why don't they make them half and half? Anything to make it more visible. Tradition says no? Hell, make it neon orange. Then no race would be offended!

                                                              Unfortunately if the lighting guy is white yes. If he's not, then no. There is where it becomes troubling to me.
