Him and Tory Holt were talking about pro bowl snubs Cruz and Jordy Nelson. When asked about Cruz, Sterling said "whenever he hears the name Victor Cruz, he thinks of a 6'2'' Mexican playing the guitar " What a ignorant piece of crap he is. This is not only borderline racist, but extremely disrespectful to any professional athlete who has worked hard to get to the NFL. Cruz is half Puerto Rican and half African American. I hope he unacceptable(sharpe ) gets serious backlash for this one. And to add insult to injury, the blonde anchor, forgot her name, is laughing hysterically on the air in the back ground. This may not only be a big deal to most of you, however if anyone says anythig within the lines towards African Americans or any other race that is sensitive to these kind of remarks (anything said about any race is unacceptable) Im sure the sky would fall.

Wow what a d**chebag. I've always liked Sharpe too, that's disappointing. You'd think he'd show some respect to someone who plays his former position.

Sharpe picked the Jets last week because he felt the Giants needed the game more than the Jets, and teams that need to win more than the other team don't perform as well.


Tells you all you need to know about this guy.

Not really defending him, but Sterling's remark didn't come off that way to me. The name Victor Cruz is a little odd, almost an oxymoron, kinda like Jamal Rothstein or Rosalina Johnson. You don't expect those two names together. And when you think of a football player, it sounds funny, and if you said the name VC without knowing who he was, you wouldn't think football WR. You'd think of a really smart latino :)

Not complaining. Just saying...

Recently a player named Rock Cartwright played for the Redskins. Now THAT's an old school football player name. That's the context of which I think Sterling was referring to.

And to his defense, Sterling has said positive things about VC.

Not for nothing, but I don't think we'd be talking about it if Sterling had said this about a player not playing for the Giants.

Wow, what a waste of energy. For those either waiting to be offended or outraged that they don't get equal outrage offense time, let's stop the game.

If one had to wait for an offensive remark against any Giants player or the team by any NFL analyst or network, the wait would last about two seconds. And if one were waiting for an insightful comment, you'd still be at the bus stop. (Oh wait, did that last remark offend anyone? I better take it back.)

So, if this thread is supposed to be about talking Giants football, I disagree. ...And I am offended at it. [;)]

If Cruz is half Puerto Rican and half African American, the he is three fourths black. Puerto Ricans (and the rest of Latin American) would not exist if it were not for African American being transported to those areas. Don't confuse ethnicity with culture.

Victor Cruz is a Spanish speaking African mixed with some Indian and European. That being said, Sterling Sharpe, an African, can make fun of another African.

Bradshaw is also healthy and Nicks is one of the best receivers in the game. HELLO? OL is great?! Bradshaw has not practiced this weekandhe totally missed that Nicks is nursing a sore hammy.

what a dumb thread. get over it. it was obviously a joke. knowing that there is actually a Mexican guitar player named Victor Cruz makes this thread even sillier. i'm kind of interested in what the o.p. thinks of Mexicans who play the guitar in general. obviously it's a very disparaging label to have according to this thread. maybe the o.p. has an issue with Mexicans and is thus offended by Victor being referred to as one? just a thought.

interesting discussion on the use of the term 'African American' going on here. i happen to agree that it's rather silly. what do they call blacks in England? i know we have some Englishmen on this board. do they call them African British? that would be funny wouldn't it?

political correctness can certainly be obnoxious at times. i'm as liberal as it gets. never really dealt with racism growing up, but can certainly acknowledge its existence and its negative impacts on society. but that doesn't mean we can't joke about race, which was obviously what was going on in this particular case.

matter of fact, and this is just a personal reaction, but i tend to sense more blind racism coming from people who refer to black people as 'African Americans' than those who just call them 'black'. unless it's used in a formal setting, whenever i hear someone use the term 'African American' it usually sounds contrived. like they're using it specifically not to sound racist. anyway, just my ten cents.

I am of hispanic heritage and when I heard the name Victor Cruz in the preseason game, I was like Whoa! A hispanic WR playing for the Giants thats awesome! But then I later on I learned he was Puertican and African American. So I do understand where Sterling Sharpe is coming from but he could have said worse like, " When I hear the name Victor Cruz I think of the guy that mows my lawn." That would have been racist. Maybe he was trying to be funny but still uncalled for.

what a dumb thread. get over it. it was obviously a joke. knowing that there is actually a Mexican guitar player named Victor Cruz makes this thread even sillier. i'm kind of interested in what the o.p. thinks of Mexicans who play the guitar in general. obviously it's a very disparaging label to have according to this thread. maybe the o.p. has an issue with Mexicans and is thus offended by Victor being referred to as one? just a thought.

interesting discussion on the use of the term 'African American' going on here. i happen to agree that it's rather silly. what do they call blacks in England? i know we have some Englishmen on this board. do they call them African British? that would be funny wouldn't it?

political correctness can certainly be obnoxious at times. i'm as liberal as it gets. never really dealt with racism growing up, but can certainly acknowledge its existence and its negative impacts on society. but that doesn't mean we can't joke about race, which was obviously what was going on in this particular case.

matter of fact, and this is just a personal reaction, but i tend to sense more blind racism coming from people who refer to black people as 'African Americans' than those who just call them 'black'. unless it's used in a formal setting, whenever i hear someone use the term 'African American' it usually sounds contrived. like they're using it specifically not to sound racist. anyway, just my ten cents.

...this really has nothing to do with giants football does it?Great post!!! I wonder how riled up the OP was when Don Imus jokingly called those girls down in Tennessee "nappy headed hoes"? I bet he got a good laugh out of that. I'm black and I didn't take it to heart like a lot of people did. The man was joking but I guess he went too far.

Don Imus never did anything to me or my family. That man got railroaded. And I'm Black.
Exactly! You got rappers calling women of color *itches and hoes but Imus says a joke and people go nuts! I wasn't down with that bs.

Not really defending him, but Sterling's remark didn't come off that way to me. The name Victor Cruz is a little odd, almost an oxymoron, kinda like Jamal Rothstein or Rosalina Johnson. You don't expect those two names together. And when you think of a football player, it sounds funny, and if you said the name VC without knowing who he was, you wouldn't think football WR. You'd think of a really smart latino :)

Not complaining. Just saying...

Recently a player named Rock Cartwright played for the Redskins. Now THAT's an old school football player name. That's the context of which I think Sterling was referring to.

And to his defense, Sterling has said positive things about VC.

Not for nothing, but I don't think we'd be talking about it if Sterling had said this about a player not playing for the Giants.

If that is the way you think, please do us a favor and don't post in here anymore.
CTFU!

Different from liberal practice which has more emphasis on big government.


in the context i used the word liberal, i was describing my social views. very different from a political ideology, which is what you are describing. labels like 'liberal' get misinterpreted all time which is why i hesitate to use them.

if i had to describe my politics in that sense, i would call myself a democratic socialist. but i would never go around telling people i'm a socialist. mainly because people don't understand what it is. ultimately i just think people should take care of each other, and my vote goes to whoever i believe has the best interest in doing just that. the field always seems rather sparse for some reason. haha. but anyhow, we are getting way off topic here. glad you enjoyed the video. Carlin is one of my all time favorite comics.

I agree people should take care of each other but I dont think the government should do it. We are turning into too much of a nanny state. Relying on the gov for everything. I respect your opinion though.

The more it is in control the more in trouble we are. Look at Germany during WWII and other regimes.

This is just my opinion, take it for what its worth.

I love this country and its people, but I can't stand the US government and the cronies who run it, Democratic or Republican. Too me they're all a bunch of greedy crooks.

point taken. but ultimately we do need a government, and it would be nice to have one with our best interests in mind. while i agree that much of the US government is made up of 'greedy crooks', the social structure of the 'free market', which you seem to believe in, is no less corrupt.

government is necessary to protect its citizens. and whether ours has been doing a good job of that or not, i feel like we have no choice but to believe in what it can be. but as it is, as Mr. Carlin so eloquently illustrated, we're all getting f----d.
