In case there were any lingering doubt what ESPN.com columnist Jason Whitlock thinks of ESPN.com columnist Scoop Jackson, allow Whitlock's Kansas City Star column should clear it up for you.

Scoop Jackson, a black columnist at America's best and most influential online sports section (ESPN.com), filed a rant so juvenile and flawed on this topic that I nearly broke down in tears after reading it. His "column" perfectly exposed the problem within my industry and the sports industry when it comes to diversification.
