Racial double standard

Gee, d'ya think there would be any media reaction if, say, Bernard Goldberg had casually dropped the following barb into his commentary on the US Olympic Team?

So try not to laugh when someone says these are the world’s greatest athletes, despite a paucity of whites that makes the Winter Games look like a Democrat convention.

But if you switch white to black and GOP to Democrat, you get what Maroon-In-Residence Bryant Gumbel said the other day on HBO's Real Sports.

We're pretty much desensitized to the MSM's double standard and its elastic measure of what is incorrect thought.
