Check out ESPN "commentator" Colin Cowherd's moronic rant:

ESPN's Colin Cowherd partially blamed what he described as NASCAR's southern "eye-for-an-eye culture" for the tragic death of driver Kevin Ward Jr., who was run over by three-time champion Tony Stewart Saturday at the Canandaigua Motorsport Park dirt track. [...]

Saying NASCAR had a "unique culture" that was almost exclusively a "southern delicacy," the ESPN host linked the sport's emphasis on displays of masculine aggression to what he said was the "eye-for-an-eye" culture of the South . . .

So, in summary here's Cowherd's thesis: Tony Stewart, a race car driver from Columbus, Indiana accidently hits Kevin Ward Jr, a race car driver from Port Leyden, New York at the Canandaigua Motorsports Park in upstate New York at about the same latitude as London, Ontario. And somehow this is symptomatic of the "culture of the South." I wonder what Cowherd would have said if Stewart had been driving an Indy car or a Formula 1 car.

Update: Daniel Flynn, writing at Breitbart, noticed the same thing:

But it's still silly to blame the South for New Yorker Kevin Ward Jr.'s death under a Hoosier's wheel in the Finger Lakes region of the Empire State. All serious people know it's George W. Bush's fault.
