Sports activities Announcer Blames Racist Tirade on Sort 1 Diabetes • EBONY


A sports announcer makes an interesting excuse for racist rhetoric and more on The Daily Rundown.

Diabetes is to blame.

If you think you’ve heard it all before, try again. In Norman, Oklahoma, a high school sports announcer is under investigation after making racist statements on the microphone that he believed to be off. His excuse: Type 1 diabetes.

Matt Rowan, who wrote a long answer in which he excelled, said he was “embarrassed” and “disappointed” during the Norman High School girls basketball game. It’s important to note that he called the players the N word when they kneeled during the national anthem, which is widely used to draw attention to social injustices against blacks in America.

“I will say that I have type 1 diabetes and that my sugar rose a lot during the game. While I don’t apologize for what I said, it’s not uncommon for my sugar to spike, to become disoriented, and often to say things that are inappropriate and non-hurtful, “he said in the NBC News statement. “I don’t think I would have made such terrible statements without my sugar tip.”

As Politico reports, “a growing number have either made formal offers or are seriously considering running in at least half a dozen states.”

“I think this idea that black candidates can’t win nationwide and young candidates can’t win nationwide in difficult races has only been disproved in Georgia,” said Malcolm Kenyatta, a 30-year-old black state representative who is running in Pennsylvania for publication . “We have a majority in the Senate because a young man and a black man helped us get the two seats we needed.”
