Rush Limbaugh Calls George Steinbrenner A "Cracker" Who "Made African Americans Millionaires"
Rush Limbaugh just doesn’t know when to quit. Speaking on the death of New York Yankee’s owner George Steinbrenner, Limbaugh stated,
“That cracker made a lot of African Americans millionaires,” Limbaugh said on his morning show Tuesday. “And at the same time he fired a bunch of white guys.”
He also called Steinbrenner the “classic capitalist” as he also made everyone around him rich.
Rev. Al Sharpton responded to the comments which Limbaugh thought were some type of eulogy for the Yankees owner stating his words were “repugnant and offensive whether they were intended to be facetious or tongue and cheek.”
He went on to say,
“For the last 20 years I have known George Steinbrenner, and we have quarreled over diversity and community programs, but I always found him fair, direct, and genuinely prone to do what he felt was right,.” He also feels that Limbaugh owed Steinbrenner’s family an apology.
