Bob Costas Says People Should Stop Blaming Whites for Black People’s Problems

by Clutch — Jul 10, 2014

Recently, during an appearance on  MSNBC’s Up with Steve Kornacki  sportcaster Bob Costas had a few words about the problems plaguing black people. Usually Costas’ views are anti-conservative, but during this appearance he seemed to tread on Don Lemon’s version of respectability politics when it came to the plight of black people and racism not being the sole reason for disenfranchisement.

While discussing the Donald Sterling controversy,  Costas stated that blaming racism was the easy thing to do, and called it the “low hanging fruit”, that “when people say, ‘Well, this is an opportunity to open up a dialogue on race,’ here is where I think some people who work in this building ought to step up and say that’s a bunch of politically correct BS.”

Costas said that “What people really want is a chance to repeat the same narrative,” rather than talk about “less comfortable truths” about race relations.

“Historically the narrative of white racism and the oppression of black Americans is the overriding truth. It’s the single greatest stain on our national history. It is still part of narrative. But that narrative is much more complex now. And some of the issues that are afflicting black America are not the result of white racism,” said Costas.


I find it ironic that Costas has literally made his living praising and talking about black athletes, and now he’s an expert when it comes to race relations and black history.

Now you see why we need detailed objective research to show why racism still exist in subtle and in powerful ways? Just one fine example and it would have destroyed his argument flat.

Do these people need to take a basic level managing diversity/Afro-American undergrad course?

I learned the terms institutional racism, glass ceiling, stereotyping, confirmation bias, etc. in a matter of short weeks.

I mean come on. How can you engage in any INFORMED debate about blacks in America without believing these things exist?

He is not unique. Cry

"The Pew Research Center conducted a poll asking Americans whether they believed racism played a role in the social and economic conditions of African Americans, and 63 percent said no."

Misleading ass title because nothing Costas said was a lie. Not every problem in the black community is bred from white racism. Some of it we do to ourselves. Who the hell would negate that? Or would it just sound better coming out of a black mouth? People get so defensive when other communities see the cracks in our own.

citing the source of something doesn't absolve people of their role in correcting what is wrong
