Costas: NBC Should Say ‘Politically Correct BS’ on Sterling Controversy Spurring Race Dialogue

CostasWhile talking about the ramifications of Donald Sterling‘s controversial racial comments, Bob Costas noted some points people at his network should make.

“When people say, ‘well, this is an opportunity to open up a dialogue on race,’ here is where I think some people who work in this building ought to step up and say you know what, that’s a bunch of politically correct BS,” Costas said on “Up with Steve Kornacki” over the weekend.

Costas added that the less comfortable and more complicated truths about race relations in 2014 as compared to 1964 and 1984 is something media networks are less inclined to dig deep into.
