So apparently a rival sport blog has posted some very vile old posts from this Deadspin writer. I’m reminded of the whole Pinkham drama (for Groupthink old timers) but this time the phone call is not coming from inside the house.
I do not find his apology at all compelling but your miles may vary. He doesn’t really address what he wrote, other than to kind of shrug and say “oops, that wasn’t nice.” He has no vocabulary for speaking to his privilege as a white man. Also the timeline is off. How is he 22 in 2007 and 46 now?
