Clay Travis and Buck Sexton mentioned the continued drama at ESPN between Rachel Nichols and Maria Taylor on Tuesday.
Clay: Buck, we have been simply speaking about this off the air. Remember yesterday we talked about Rachel Nichols, who was actually upset that she obtained changed by a black lady in her internet hosting duties on the NBA Finals, and while you really…? Maria Taylor, by the way in which, changed her. She has now been pulled off of the NBA Finals sidelines and changed by one other black lady, Malika Andrews.
This is fairly loopy. It’s humorous to me in some ways as a result of Rachel Nichols is a type of woke white individuals we have been speaking about. They’re all in favor, Buck, of variety and inclusion, so long as variety and inclusion doesn’t really threaten their very own jobs — after which, boy, oh, boy, are they not pleased about it in any respect.
Buck: And clearly, she had inadequate wokeness insurance coverage. You know, the coverage didn’t cowl saying that she thought an African-American feminine colleague was not as certified as her for that job. Her wokeness coverage didn’t get her out of that drawback.
Clay: She misplaced two jobs, so I really needed to give ESPN credit score. It’s sort of humorous in an ironic approach. She stated (summarized), “Hey, this woman, Maria Taylor, doesn’t deserve to have my job. She’s getting this gig because of diversity,” after which the New York Times has an enormous story on July 4th, entrance web page of their Sports part about Rachel Nichols’ feedback there, after which they exchange her with one other black lady. Now she loses one other job.
Here was a part of Clay and Buck’s unique dialog from Monday:
