BRICE CHERRY: LET’S CUT THE ZEBRAS SOME SLACK
BRICE CHERRY, Tribune‑Herald sports editor
Probably more so than any other time in the history of this country, the speech police are out in force. We live in an age of hyper‑political correctness, where anything you might say or possibly write via social media must be analyzed to ensure that it is not (choose one: intolerant, offensive, bigoted, homophobic, racist, misogynistic, etcetera).
Yet you want to know the one people group that it’s perfectly acceptable to punish with unrelenting vitriol? Don’t worry, no hate crime is forthcoming. Berate sports officials all you want.
