7-30 Scoot Show 9pm, Southern Accent

Jul 30, 2014|

ESPN panelist Stephen A. Smith is off the air for a week following a comment he made about women being aware of the things they do to provoke men into abusing them. Smith apologized for the remark. Is punishment of Smith justified? THEN: Does a southern accent make someone sound dumb? A national lab in Tennessee was planning a class designed to help employees get rid of their Southern accents – but the class was cancelled following complaints. What do you assume about someone with a Southern accent? Are there any other things that make Southerners seem dumb?

For the the movie reefer madness which came out in 1936. -- this was all about the evils of smoking marijuana. And it tries to create such a panic in America it was actually part of a part of a propaganda campaign. To fight marijuana in America. And wait to hear this this original trailer from reefer madness since you haven't seen the movie I do recommended to you whether you smoke or not it doesn't matter just a show issue. What the thought once about marijuana. In the 1930s so will line but we'll play that for you coming appeared in just a few minutes also -- it was a night of several crime walks around the New Orleans area.

Of a woman industry hand and apparently this is a guy from a prominent family in industry hand. And he is. He's wanted. For allegedly stabbing his girlfriend at a house -- or lot of states. They're really nice neighborhood. Got a -- sister standing -- norm on worth noting that he was out on pro patient probation for armed robbery in the world ends. It was in the -- a few months ago this is why. Our crime and other places affects everyone everywhere. It's not like people once out of probation remain confined to one place he puts everyone in danger. Win people who commit violent crimes are out on the streets. I don't know what does this a person understands his but it it's my understanding that this person is from. The -- estates area but I mean this is -- this is just a real tragedy and I don't know what to is is going on with this particular situation by as far as I know this guy is still -- on the loose.

And good luck for Smart pretty bitter -- And all of the certificate you remember we never charge for Tex but individual play and text and data rates may apply -- from -- Brian your on the -- show good evening. Anything now they're odd about Stephen A Smith yeah but I have a little context -- -- now we need to keep in -- in this particular situation. -- -- This was a 11 way street rate -- it smacks his wife for no reason the golf against women act is -- -- and he will be and -- And he would have been suspended for a year. So what that tells me at this with reciprocal which means they traded blue. He was not he was now -- -- once it's. Now all the Stephen A Smith moved with Stephen A Smith at all like it should. You know that was simply the -- under the -- about obligates. I won't say if we were Twitty said about the culture having outlasted judgment and we come these situations pop pop. You know we wanna make the pitch looked in the Manhattan. Column if you look at intimate partner Obama statistics. You'll see where and when it's reciprocal which means to -- traded. Well I mean view instigated in the cockpit view what are. And that's what I mean at that goes against popular culture but he can look at. Though so I needed that he is that is effect if a woman hits you are you gonna -- back. And different -- but -- are you that if a woman a woman hits you or human header back. At right. You article. Only fourteen so another words regardless of the size of the woman you're gonna punch -- back. Well. You U I you're gonna punch -- back. Right -- Probably fourteen. What's wrong what's the quality not into the -- and lollipops. Well I understand that Brian -- it we do apply not. I enter I understand that I mean you might. If you have a right to do a lot of things but it doesn't mean it's the right thing to do and if that's what you're comfortable doing wonderful woman. He hits you when you and a punch or back and you wanna do that. I'm not to to judge whether or not you could be arrested that's going to be up to law enforcement. Well I -- -- -- on -- I know I didn't think it is and I'm being proxy -- or would you medical well. That's -- -- -- that's gonna come up in court it did you deserve it did you provoking did she provoke the problem with what Stephen A Smith said in my opinion. Is that he suggested. That women need to be mindful not to provoke men. Which is a suggestion. That if their provoked. Men have the rights to -- a woman. Or -- defend themselves. -- -- -- But without a right Brian if what do you mean by defend yourself mean defend your life because if a woman punches you your life's not necessarily in danger. -- All right but there are a lot of places she could hit you in your life would not be in danger if you punch -- back that's revenge not -- So -- what it is but admit that it's revenge and not defense. And let's go back to work and right let's go back to a woman so what you're doing is sure seeking revenge is opposed to defending yourself because of a woman hits you you'll admit. -- your life might not be in danger at that point but you'll -- back because she hit you first and you have a bright -- that's revenge. -- -- -- -- Self self thanks Bryant self defense means you're protecting your life and property. If you were punched by a woman and your life is not threatened figure punching her back out of revenge. No not you know you've been a white night. That got this straight white Knight -- giant thought out there. Well Brian -- good luck with your life if you punch a woman 'cause I you know that might not always lead in the direction that you think it's gonna leave it. It is to it amazes me I mean there's a difference between. Self defense. And hitting a woman. Now is it fair for women to hit then of course not. -- have a right to defend themselves absolutely. If Obama hits you. And you put your backing you knock her out because of your superior strength. That's not the case in every case but generally speaking. Men are stronger than women that as a general. Comment. And there are individual. And their individual examples everywhere. But if you punch a woman back because she punched you -- doing that out of revenge. -- from -- -- when you're on WWL. -- military aircraft entered with a female of ball Washington avenue. And actually swallow it can't try to hit me promote the -- So wouldn't want she'd been -- from being. I mean I had a decent lie so well sorry book there's that we go to wouldn't what did you do when. I didn't do now than it was did it was outside. Well I don't I don't know but that but you said you had to defend yourself what did you do to defend yourself. Well me and I you have I mean you know I'm not rebel. I'm gonna produce up and they did not -- now that let them know that you try and -- -- below the belt. And teaching or. We Tiago who knew who are on to. Yeah. Oh yeah only every situation is different and I and I I I can't pass judgment on what you went through in your situation and and if if you feel like you need to do that to defend yourself that's one thing that the idea of justifying hitting a woman back. Because she hit you sounds more like revenge to me that it does self defense in your case it sounds like you felt like you needed to defend yourself. Yeah but -- -- it this way if you're that depends on what to do that to remain in Vietnam and so -- slapped in the face them enough of that. Some regular insulting when you it's not in the same. Well what all we are supposed -- -- -- because you insult. People in the I had to throw -- the and that's wrong. Well it is it's. -- if you're in a huge you shouldn't be hanging around women who want to slap in the face. -- they did this with nobody that's policy nobody in a bit and everybody should walk all. Go to my -- now. And they come back and talk about it. That's not -- -- you know it's a great way to handle. The secret that the best way to. And it became being out of that within the body goto.

He's apologized for the comment in fact we have the comment and the apology we're gonna play that for gonna show coming up. But this idea that you punch a woman. Two to punish her.
