Where's the outrage over Barry Switzer's racial comments?

Where’s the outrage?

Regarding “Switzer: ‘I’d never recruit a white QB’” (Sports, March 1): Can you imagine the media outrage if Barry Switzer (instead of saying “white”) had said black, brown, red, yellow, gay, Hispanic or Muslim? Who’s the defender of bigotry or racism when statements are made denigrating or belittling white or Caucasian people? Maybe it’s time for people to withdraw their support from anyone who discriminates against or puts down any particular group of people.
