Hugh Douglas Michael Smith

When people get drunk, normally they say things they have been feeling for a long time (ask Riley Cooper). While I was at the NABJ conference, I didn’t see any of this, so at this point it is just speculation from The Big Lead.

Here is what they are reporting at the Sports Task Force party.

According to the source, Douglas, who appears on Numbers Never Lie on ESPN with Michael Smith and Jemele Hill, was trying to get on stage where the DJ was playing, and threatened to beat up Smith if he couldn’t help out. After the third threat, Smith tried to walk away, at which point Douglas grabbed Smith’s wrist and hurled two racial epithets at him, calling him an “Uncle Tom” and a “House N—-.” Smith, the witness says, turned around to protect himself, at which point onlookers rushed in to break it up.

Douglas has been silent since the event and Smith has continued with his duties at ESPN. Unfortunately it put a bit of a dark cloud over a conference than is suppose to uplift and help black journalists.

ESPN has not commented on Douglas’ future, they have just said are looking into the matter.

    Ain’t that the truth. *smdh*

    Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait….

    So Michael Smith is a house n—- and uncle tom for doing the smart thing and walking away? I thought Riley Cooper is the ignorant one.

  3. LB says:

    If this is true then I’m really disapointed in big Hugh. I thought they made a good team on Numbers Never Lie. Hugh may have just cut his ESPN career short. He better call NFL network.

  4. WhoMe? says:

    If this is true, Hugh is an absolute idiot.

    Time and place, Hugh. TIME AND PLACE!

  6. nba is fixed says:

    Sounds like this year’s NABJ conference was just as bad as this year’s BET Awards!

  7. jim says:

    so everyone wants riley cooper kicked out of football, but espn is not gonna cover this story, i love the double standard

  8. Boss says:

    This article is dishonest. it does not admit that Hugh also called Smith a House N#gger” too on camera. What agenda exists here? Why tell a half truth? If hugh was white this story would be frontpage on EVERY SINGLE LIB MEDIA OUTLET ON EARTH!!!!

    Also notice that the bigoted lib media covers up good ole Hugh… BUT NOT THE WHITE KID IN PHILLY! Pure hypocrisy…… And of coarse it is OK for Jamie Fox to use the racist slur “Whitey”…. And of course it is no big deal when Travon and his friend referred to Zimmerman as a “Cracker”….. American PC culture is the death of our society. Double standards based on race will only make things worse in the long run….
