Normally, stuff like this is a ‘who cares’ story. Normally. But this is from an ESPN article…
ABC: A Bay Area reporter who covers the Golden State Warriors has been caught on tape taking a security staffer’s jacket after a team practice last week in San Antonio, The Athletic reported Monday.
Mike Shumann, a sports anchor of KGO-TV in San Francisco, is visible on the tape, which ESPN has reviewed. Shumann appears to take a jacket belonging to Ralph Walker, the Warriors’ director of team security, as he walks out of the AT&T Center.
Several Warriors players were upset over the incident and didn’t want it quickly dismissed, The Athletic reported. Shumann, who is white, is a former wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers and longtime TV reporter in the city. MORE
SNIP: “Shumann, who is white”? What’s that about? Because he’s ‘the man‘ and he stole a jacket from a black man?
Or is ESPN implying that, usually, it’s the black people who steal, so mentioning his race is newsworthy?
Or is it a shock that he’s white and once played for the 49ers?
This here is why you’re so hated, ESPN.’
P.S. Does anyone else find it ironic that the director of security had his jacket stolen?
