Her statements regarding Obama was used as a reference point, as she was discussing the Barber Walters situation on the view. Barbara asked her why she chose to acknowledge two ethnic identities, as opposed to just identifying as black. She stated that it was important to acknowledge both parents in regards to her ethnicity, and she found it fascinating that Obama only acknowledges the black side of his identity when he was solely raised by a white parent.
I would never question that, but I don’t consider those comments to be irreverent.
The same thing goes with her comments regarding woman and sexual harassment. It was taking out of context. She stated that women are smart, and know what they are doing when they put on certain attire. No one deserves to be harassed, but at the same time a woman has to be responsible with her attire. That’s why she is careful with what she wears and what her daughters wear. That was her commentary.
There wasn’t anything victim blaming or degrading about those statements. I don’t have the same ideology as her, but her outlook is far from appalling.
Her comments revealing ESPN’s mandatory vaccination policy Is where the problem truly exists. She berated her employer on a global platform, which was an unintelligent move, considering she is an employee of the company.
I’m not for or against Sage, but the coverage and reports given by the media in regards to the interview are somewhat sensationalized.
