Marathon’s Headline Win Is Empty – Sports Biz with Darren Rovell – CNBC.com.
I just want to say that Darren Rovell has no clue. I guess that is why he is writing a sports column on CNBC.
But I expect more of CNBC then what was delivered by Rovell on Monday about New York City Marathon winner Meb Keflezighi.
He is the first American to win the New York City Marathon since 1998.
But Rovell tried to diminish the win because Keflezighi was not born in America. He immigrated when he was 12 from Eritrea with his family. This is truly an American story.
What American didn’t come from some other country, whether directly or as a descendent? He is no less an American than I am, and I was born here.
Rovell’s comments border on racism and definitely will not be on my read list anymore.
Get a clue Rovell!
