Michael C. Hall & Bob Marley Insulted By Racist New York Times

And the quote from the newpaper’s twitter feed: "Is Michael C. Hall playing Bob Marley in an upcoming movie? Don’t get the hat or what he is hiding under it."

To me both Bob Marley, Michael C. Hall as well as Jamaicans in general got smacked here. Anybody reporting from the Golden Globes who does not know that Michael C. Hall, an award winner for Best Actor, has cancer and that explains the hat should obviouslky not be reporting on entertainment for any media, let alone as self-important a piece of garbage as the new York Times. What about the underlying racism here? What are the tacit implications of ridiculing a man wearing a stocking hat and asking if thinks he is Bob Marley. I know racism when I feel it and this is it.
