Oakland A’s Announcer Glen Kuiper Suspended for Using N-Word On-Air

Oakland A’s TV broadcaster Glen Kuiper has been suspended after he uttered a racial slur during the team’s Friday evening broadcast in an apparent slip-up while discussing a visit to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City. A spokesperson for NBC Sports California, which carries A’s games, said on Saturday that Kuiper will be removed from the air while the incident is reviewed. The incident occurred during the pregame portion of the broadcast of the A’s game against the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium. At the time, Kuiper said: “We had a phenomenal day today. (N-word) league museum. And Arthur Bryant’s Barbecue.”

Just because we’re on the woke era doesn’t mean that racism no longer exists. Kuiper should definitely be suspended just like he would if he said any other racial slup. But no he shouldn’t lose his job.
