    Broadcaster Warner Wolf arrested for damaging “racist” sign

     

    Former New York Sports broadcaster was detained over a sign he considers to be racist.

     

    NAPLES, Fla. — Sportscaster Warner Wolf is facing a felony charge after police say he damaged a sign outside his Florida community because it included the word “Plantation,” which he considers racist.

    This booking photo released by the Collier County Sheriff’s Department, shows Warner Wolf.
    Collier County records show the 81-year-old Wolf surrendered Thursday on a felony criminal mischief charge and was released.

    The sheriff’s office says Wolf long complained about his community’s name, Classics Plantation Estates.

    Deputies say surveillance video shows Wolf removing the letters Nov. 30. They say he gave the letters to a security guard, telling him to pass them to the property manager. Damage is estimated at $1,100.

    Stupid clown. Apparently he’s one of these people just looking for something to be offended about.

    Well Warner Wolf just made the word plantation a racial and political issue in New York and Florida given how the report is going in the vandalism allegations.

    Sure plantation original meaning was about a farming estate.
    But the way Warner Wolf and probably the rest of America when plantations are specifically discussed in a history class then it has a negative connotation as in the slavery era before the 1860’s Civil War. That’s the discussion that’s being played here.
