    This was a couple of hours ago. WHAS 11 has reported that he has in fact resigned from the UL Board of Trustees

    Apparently Papa stuck his foot in it during a conference call to Forbes Magazine. Referencing Colonel Sanders using the “N” word and nobody cared.

    I believe the line of questioning was about the NFL and the “take a knee” debacle causing him to step down from his own company.

    Except John said the actual word instead of an euphemism like “the n word”

    I still think a RP ally leaked the story to the media.

    But then, I think the Cigarette-Smoking Man killed JFK.

    How quick will UL be looking for a new sponsor for the PJCS, and even the Yum Center??

    He has naming rights to Stadium. I wouldn't be surprised if he totally disconnects from UL, pulls the name and most importantly pulls the donations.

    I about fell over when I saw John Morgan was involved.
    I wonder how he has the time to be involved in this Chinese fire drill when he's busy here in Florida trying to get recreational marijuana legalized? Between his trips to his "other home" in Colorado besides? 😎

    I think he stepped down as the CEO of the pizza Co. Now MLB is baling out on their “grand slam” promotion.

    I may be in the minority here but I see a distinction between saying that “Colonel Sanders called people n-word” (which BTW I don't even know if that's accurate or not) and himself calling someone the n-word.

    If you think it’s inappropriate to talk about use of the word by someone else in the past by repeating the actual word, then essentially it means it’s impossible to discuss the issue in a completely open and accurate way.

    As someone who likes to discuss historical issues (including issues around race relations) I see this as problematic and somewhat of an overreaction.

    On one level I get it, but the PC culture and the victim society in this country have raged utterly out of control. You say the slightest thing "wrong" and you get crucified. It's every bit as Puritanical as anything that happened in stories like The Scarlett Letter.

    I don't even know the context in this case of what he did exactly and honestly don't care, but I get the frustration of having to dance around everything you say b/c someone may be driven to a puppy petting safe place.

    Now you have to be a fool as a white person to use that word in any public context regardless of intent, so don't get me wrong, he's lost his mind. He needs to be admitted to a mental facility apparently, b/c he's blowing up his company and while I think this country has lost its way in terms of political correctness it's obvious that's the situation and he has just stepped right into it.

    In the end it comes down to this: does someone say something b/c they are racist or whatever, or are they just saying something that even if incorrect is still basically innocent? If you're running around with a white hood you need to be crucified, but ending people's careers over some comment that was a throw-away thing seems extreme.

    In this case I think he may have a brain tumor though.

    I actually think it is an important distinction too. Clearly uttering it can destroy a person's career. But I do think there is a difference calling someone that word and saying that so and so said this word all the time.

    Context.

    I agree but in his position he should have known better in today's climate you can't say the actual word no matter what the context. Of nothing else it still shows insensitity and a tone-deafness.

    In a historical conference, I agree, but for a corporate type event or activity, you’d gave to be stupid to say that word. People know what “the n word” means and saying the actual word does nothing to clarify it in that situation.

    Schattner’s actions should be considered more stupid than racist, but stupid enough that he deserves what he’s getting, whether he’s actually racist or not.

    (Just ask Happy Chandler about consequences for saying it, and that was 30 years ago. This isn’t some new “politically correct” reaction.)

    It's utterly over the top. I haven't looked into these particular circumstances but clearly there is a difference between citing a fact of history and per se endorsing that view in some way.

    I'm disturbed as a student of history with this current culture, but also as a student of dystopian literature. What we are seeing today is more akin to something dreamt up by Orwell or Bradbury. Are we really so far now from a world of 1984 where the language itself is manipulated to control thoughts, with contrary views simply being eliminated from expression because the words needed are themselves banned and removed from reference? We're not doing a bad job of the two minute hate either for that matter.

    Mel Brooks would be arrested for trying to make Blazing Saddles today.

    I was flipping channels a few weeks ago and watched the last half of Brooks' History of the World Part I. Most of it was in shock of how crude it was. No movie studio would release such a film today for mainstream audiences.

    Can't say "we need more cowboys" either. Wyoming University is getting slammed using it in a marketing campaign. it is allegedly offensive to non white guys without ten gallon hats and in particular to Native Americans. I guess it is okay if you use it in a rap song if you are a cowboy like certain folks can use the racial slur a billion times with no blow back. Heaven help us.

    Ironically, the cowboy culture was appropriated from the Mexicans.
