Statement on Rush Limbaugh

Burlington, VT, October 1, 2003

“Rush Limbaugh's comment this week about Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb is unacceptable. To imply that the success of African-American is an undeserved gift from a biased media is absurd and offensive.

“ESPN should terminate Limbaugh's contract immediately, and send the message to its viewers and the nation that it holds commentators to the highest standard. There is no legitimate place in sports broadcasting for voices that seek to discredit the achievement of athletes on the basis of race.”
