Freudian slip?

(CNN) — A television station in Rochester, New York, fired a meteorologist Sunday after he used a racial slur on air.

During WHEC-TV’s Friday evening broadcast, Jeremy Kappell said “Martin Luther Coon Park,” when referring to a downtown Rochester park named after slain civil rights movement leader Martin Luther King Jr.

In a video viewed by CNN, Kappell says “King” immediately after using the slur and continues with the broadcast.

    Let’s respond to this little boo-boo with a “slightly-altered” Alexandria Ocasio-Kotex:

    “It’s Better to Be ‘Morally Right’ Than politically correct”.

    I see no problem, I’m guessing only 1,2 out of 10 of them mooncrickets even know what he said. We have been judging by the continence of their character for a long time now. How’s that working out?

    is coon a slur. I thought was an adjective. Now if he had said coon-ass then…

      It is in the South. Used to be very common to call blacks coons. And “Martin Lucifer Coon” was one of the gentler nicknames coined for the man in his day.

      As for the weatherman, he tripped over his tongue, nothing more. But since he’s white he gets no mercy.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
