Over the last few months sports announcers have become known for saying stupid things. Some of the more recent acts of idiocy include Warren Sapp's flub as well as Bill Walton's passive aggressive protest to the Twitter suspension of colleague Bill Simmons.
Now we can add Charles Barkley calling a white basketball player "Whitey."
To be fair, the player's actual name is "Withey" so I can see where an honest mistake can be made. But it's Sir Charles--it's kinda fun to point out his flubs.
