If a person can't make an off-color (no pun intended) comment about another without the media spinning it into a racial riot we have lost all perspective. I grew up in a racially mixed neighborhood and our color or nationality was a common descriptive adjective. Perhaps this writer needs to get out in the real world and find out that racial slurs come from all sides. When was the last time you spent time in a place where you were referred to as Honky or some other insult to whites.
Steve Williams may be a jerk but so is his former boss whom I suspect has referred Williams in less than polite terms that the media failed to report because of Mr. Wood's star status.
