Detroit Tiger’s Commentator Jack Morris Uses Mock Asian Accent
I know I’m most likely going to catch flack for saying something about this but this has been a reoccurring thing that seems to happen over and over and over again and yet anytime anyone speaks up, it’s met was instant criticism, assumed political affiliation, deflection, and pushback. During a recent Detroit Tigers game, Los Angeles Angels batter Shohei Ohtani, a Japanese player, was up to bat, and color commentator Jack Morris used a racist stereotype that had been used against characterized Asians in the past, while describing an at-bat situation.
During the at-bat, Morris was asked what to do with Ohtani. He replied using the mock Asian accent, "Be very, very careful." He later came out and made somewhat of an apology to people he may have offended. Then, just like clockwork, America was quick to come to his aide in the comment section of just about every article you’ll see today. Just take this article as an example and scrolling through it absolutely astounds me just how many racist apologist will go out of their way to defend someone’s public racist comments and blame it on everyone else.
First off it blows my mind that THAT is their reaction. Not disgust, not cringing from the uncomfortable and unnecessary comment, but to defend the comment. That basically says everything you need to know about them. But it also seems like every stupid thing you could think of to defend this guy is thrown on the table:
The best part is, it probably wasn't a mock Asian accent, but a play on Elmer Fudd's "be vewwy vewwy quiet".
What a sad world we live in, everyone offended by every little thing!!!! Bring back the good old days!
Really ??? That’s offensive ??? Cmon people !!!! I didn’t feel like there was or he was trying to show any disrespect to anyone .
