|The white-sounding |
non-cornrowed Kelli Walker
On their Monday morning program, Wolf and Proft were discussing Seattle Seahawk, Richard Sherman's now famous, thuggish and threatening post-game rant.
In the widely disseminated interview with Erin Andrews of Fox Sports (see video below), the cornrow-coiffed Seattle cornerback assumed his most threatening pose and semi coherent ghetto lingo and foamed at Andrews, "
“Don’t you ever talk about me!”
“Who was talking about you?” Andrews asked
“Crabtree. Don’t you open your mouth about the best. Or I’m going to shut it for you real quick. LOB"
At this, the non-cornrowed, black traffic news reader, Kelli Walker, blurted into the Wolf-Proft discussion: Sounds like she had a blond moment with that question.
It was an entirely legitimate question in the context of Sherman's vitriolic gibberish -- Time Sports correspondent Sean Gregory even wrote that it showed the blond Andrew's professionalism in keeping the rant going.
But Kelli Walker called it: A blond moment.
A blond moment?.
Why isn't that considered a racial and sexist slur? Only white people have blond hair and the "Blond moment" taunt has become a racially-tinged suggestion of stupidity on the part of white women.
Imagine the brouhaha that would ensue with racial hucksters Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton if a white WLS employee blurted that Kelli Walker had a "big butt moment." -- or a "Cornrows moment."
Oh wait a minute, the white-sounding Walker has straight hair.
Do Ovation hair care products work for cornrows?
