Us diversity nerds are not particularly surprised that Jerry Seinfeld finds talking about race, gender or sexuality as "anti-comedy" and dismisses it as "PC nonsense." After 20 years of whitewashing New York, the media is pushing him to be accountable for his narrow world view. At 59, Seinfeld is long past his comedy prime, with more innovative comics of the decade taking over the airwaves. All dinosaurs eventually become extinct. Not only is being racist unfunny -- at the end of the day it is just plain boring.
It seems more than a bit odd that, according to a probing piece in The New York Times, players do not protect those delicate, tender, highly sought-after jewels. Seriously, though: no cups? That's astonishing. I mean, they wear equipment to protect every other area. Why be more protective of the kidneys than the cookies? More protective of the noggin than the nuggets?
