Who is Marcus Hayes you ask? Well he is a Philadelphia Daily News columnist who once stated that Chase Utley isn’t as harshly criticized because of the color of his sin. Yesterday, Hayes took to making his other prejudices known on Daily News Live. After a fellow panelist was explaining how the Minnesota Wild were taking their father’s on the road for the current trip, Marcus looked like quite perplexed. He then had this to say :
“It’s a good thing they don’t do that in the NBA.”
Clever jab, Marcus. The latest rude and insensitive comment that clearly takes aim at the stereotype that African American’s are dead beat fathers, begs the question, how does this man still have a job? Classless.
