ESPN, removes Robert Lee (who's asian) from calling a football game at Virginia. Idiocracy.

I really enjoy how all the headline writers feel the need to point out that he's Asian

Well the fact that he's Asian actually does make it more ridiculous(if that's possible)......and hilarious to be honest, so I totally get it.

Yeah.. There's a huge difference between "Let's take down statues that were put up to scoreboard black people in the 1900s" and "Let's get rid of a guy who happens to have the same name as a Confederate dude."

Why couldn't the Leader of the Confederacy have been named Lou Holtz.

I read the ESPN exec's response to this last night and I kind of get where he's coming from. But the backlash from pre-emptively making this move is going to be worse for everyone involved, IMO, than whatever few "memes and jokes" spawned from the viewers of that game.
