Anchor's powerful speech on racist signs goes viral

By

Just like he was about one year ago, Dale Hansen is on point.

The Dallas/Fort Worth sports anchor on WFAA-TV gave another powerful rant this week, this time concerning a group of young fans at a high school basketball game in Flower Mound, Texas who held up signs saying “White Power.”

Hansen denounced the act, saying it was intentional while parents argued it was a “mistake.” He then briefly explains the history of Flower Mound, Texas, while talking about his own upbringing with a father who regularly used racial slurs.

“Kids have to be taught to hate, and it’s our parents and grandparents and our teachers and coaches too who teach us to hate,” Hansen said. “Kids become the product of that environment. I was and they are.”

About a year ago, Hansen went viral last year when he defended Michael Sam, who became the first openly gay football player to be drafted in the NFL.
