Stephen A. Smith Believes There Are Racial Undertones To People Calling Him ‘Screaming A.’ (VIDEO)
On Monday’s edition of ‘First Take, the crew invited former Philadelphia Eagles QB Donovan McNabb on the show to discuss various topics. Among them was Tom Brady and his sideline outburst.
The New England Patriots QB blew a head gasket on Pats offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels after he tried to point out what went wrong on a previous play. It led to him getting an ass-chewing of epic proportions.
In the midst of talking about that situation, Stephen A. Smith argued that if Tom Brady was a Black man, that the situation would’ve been viewed much differently than it is right now.
He then expanded on his comments and brought up the fact that some haters love to call him ‘Screaming A. Smith,’ but would never refer to any of his white co-workers like that, even though they may raise their voice just as much as he does.
“Yeah, I’ll confess, I’m a bit loud,” he said. “No doubt about that. I’ve been called Screaming A, I get all that. But on a serious note, I’m on live television for two hours a day, I’m on live radio two hours a day. That’s four hours a day. I ain’t screaming all the damn time, but they’ll call me Screaming A. Max Kellerman, you’ll be an expert on this matter. You trying to tell me there aren’t some of my white contemporaries that don’t raise their voice all the time? I don’t hear them labeled in such a fashion. I hear them talked about as if they’re passionate. I hear them talked about, “they’re really bringing it, we love this take, it’s beautiful.”
