Black NASCAR Crew Member Asked to Tap-Dance by ESPN Announcer

Fresh from the "Are you kidding us?" file, an ESPN announcer asked Kenyatta Houston, a black crew member for race-car driver Kevin Harvick, to tap-dance "for us." Houston is a graduate of NASCAR's Drive for Diversity Program. How ironic? The funny thing about this sad situation is that the brother actually did it. Clearly he didn't get the memo about dancing on demand, particularly in situations that don't call for dancing. The other funny thing is that the identity of the announcer remains anonymous. No one has come forward. You think? Shaking our heads and laughing to keep from crying over at The Root.
