In my mind although I hesitate to say it caste announcing has diminished somewhat over the years and I think this site has played a major role in that. People may disagree over that but whatever. That said Dick Vitale has gone in the opposite direction in extreme. I have heard him do several games this season and the results are astonishing. Perhaps I should not rule out that he is playing an under the table shill to the agents of prospective NBA prospects? That said what Vital travels in is indirect hate speech. His effort this past Saturday was a massacre to the senses. When Vitale does a game you aren't watching a basketball game. You are watching an ancient pagan ritual of incantation. Chanting from the highest rooftops in pagan like repetition this hellish human being is promoting racial superiority without a whiff of irony. He has reached the point of no return with his constant skyscraping squeals of love and admiration for certain black players. The hate speech is a result of his complete exclusion of white players being involved in his unholy ritual. Should he be thrown in jail for his racist taunts? Perhaps not but how about heavy fines each time he goes overboard which is every three minutes. To say I don't like Dick Vitale is an understatement. I loath him and now that he has gotten worse he needs to farmed out of the TV business and pronto. This sort of hate speech is toxic and has no place in civilized society. He has to go and I am currently thinking of ways to help get him off ESPN.
