NBC's Brokaw apologizes for saying Hispanics should 'work harder at assimilation'

https://thehill.com/homenews/media/427197-nbcs-brokaw-apologizes-for-saying-hispanics-should-work-harder-at-assimilation

After a long and accomplished career, Tom Brokaw either seems to be struggling for a new self-identity, or has morphed into an enfeebled, cantankerous uncle who can't keep himself from blurting out his absurd opinions.

2. Hopefully he will never appear in public again.

He should have been put out to pasture when he came up with that "greatest generation" tripe.

5. I ran into him years ago at Saratoga Race Track

He was there with his wife, I was there with my Dad, and we were seated nearby in the box seats. All I did was nod when I walked by since I couldn't help but recognize him, and he gave me a dirty look - That stuck with me.

6. Should Corporations Promote Otherwise Qualified People

 

Who don't speak English well, are difficult to understand and can't write in English well to top positions?

Just asking. Not giving opinion.
