Filling in for Ben Maller this morning, Fox Sports Radio’s Bruce Jacobs — already renowned for his insightful views on the French — decided to take exception to Bryant Gumbel’s recent televised remarks that were critical of the Winter Olympic Games.
“Blacks aren’t allowed to ski? Blacks can’t ice skate? I wasn’t aware there were all these buildings that blacks weren’t allowed into.”
“Bryant Gumbel, social commentator. Still cheating on the wife, B.? Still chasing after everything in a short skirt? I think that’s a fair question to ask.”
(a tape recording of “Blazing Saddles’” Cleavon Little asking “Where all the white women at?” is played)
“That was Bryant Gumbel walking into a bar.”
