ESPN’s Sage Steele Says the Worst Racism She Experienced is from Black People

Back in November, ESPN’s Sage Steele made waves when she called out Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans for sitting during the Anthem, saying the following:

“We — as people of color — continue to cry for racial equality, diversity and acceptance, and rightfully so. That said, why must we continue to tear down those within our own race? Why must we shun those within our own race who think differently?” Steele said at the time.

Just last month, she took to Instagram to complain about missing her flight due to protesters in the wake of President Donald Trump’s travel ban, and social media lost its mind.


Last week, Sage Steele once again ruffled feathers when she stated that she’s experienced more racism from her own race than she has from anyone else. 

During her appearance at New Jersey’s The Crossing Church for an event titled “Under Our Skin: A Forum on Race and Faith,” Steele used that opportunity to talk about the scrutiny she faced from her own race and how hypocritical most of it can be.

“The worst racism that I have received [as a biracial woman married to white man], and I mean thousands and thousands over the years, is from black people, who in my mind thought would be the most accepting because there has been that experience,” said Steele. “But even as recent as the last couple of weeks, the words that I have had thrown at me I can’t repeat here and it’s 99 percent from people with my skin color. But if a white person said those words to me, what would happen?”
