I don't watch ESPN so I really don't know who Stephen A. Smith is, but he's in the news. He's in the news partly because he tells the (sports-related) news, and partly because LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling is in the news. This is a toppling dominoes story, and how we wind up at this juncture isn't really the point.
This juncture, where Stephen A. Smith hauls off and shares a big ol' piece of his mind, is the point. And it is brilliant.
In this video, I don't see a black man. I don't see a racist, a commentator, a flak, anything like that. I see an American of the highest order.
I have nothing further to say. This is an act I cannot follow without detracting from it. I salute you Mr. Smith, and wish you nothing but the best.
