I watched the adorable Jazz owner give her great speech in which she said the so-called fan "forgot his manners". To me that sounds like understatement of the year, and far from a harsh criticism. Especially when the guy had a clear history of bigotry. When I raised this on the speech thread I was told if I had been on the Earth for more than 10 years and wasnt retarded I would know this was as heavy as could be in Utah, and that I was mocking the local dialect. I genuinely would like to know how this is a harsh reprimand, because my friends dont get it either, and I am siding with my black buddy who was furious about this.

You are misquoting her. She said some fans exhibit poor behaviour and forget their manners after she had already condemned this specific guy as a racist who had offended practically everyone involved with Jazz. She had moved on to the larger issue at hand
No this is just how white people talk. "Forgot your manners" is polite white person speak for "you said some dumb shit" The real gesture is that she went out live before the game to address the issue. The specifics of what she said are less important I
That seems like a good answer. Unfortunately most people seem to be saying its a euphemism or "thats about the harshest thing you can say in Utah". Not sure we can all be correct if that is the case.
Im confused what you want the team and owner to do that isnt already being done.
publicly execute him
say that a fan like him shouldnt exist in society.
Oh Jesus. It’s really not that serious. The guy was a dirtbag, and was banned and publicly condemned. Do the Jazz really have to virtue signal to all of us that they’re anti-racist? We know they are because they fucking banned the racist heckler per
Did you watch the sperch, cause she basically said that
The question is about that turn of phrase. Thanks for the help.
The owner can’t exactly say anything in that situation. They can’t be cursing
They permanently banned the guy, and clearly condemned what he said. I’m not sure what else you want from them. You wanna give him the guillotine or something? It’s been dealt with. Time to move on.
I just asked about the phrase
Its a fucking euphemism...
Honestly same. People in that thread were all “oh shit” about that statement but it’s just nothing. Same downplaying of bigotry that always happens
And then all congratulatory about the speech. And now "its nothing move on what do u want them to do execute him". Just tell me how this expression is a serious reprimand fellas.
