Turns out Utah fan in Westbrook incident is a racist MAGAt

An ugly scene happened in last night's Thunder-Jazz game when Thunder guard Russell Westbrook got into it with a Jazz fan, Shane Keisel and his wife. Keisel has deleted his social media posts - but not before he was exposed using the n word and telling Westbrook to go "back where he came from" among other ugly, racist posts and of course the MAGA hashtag.

A clip of the incident which doesn't include Keisel's earlier taunts:

I read one author of an NBA book who was quoted as saying Utah is known for this.

After a lifetime of volunteering with Youth Sports in the Upper Midwest,this shocked the crap out of me when I first moved to Utah. Totally ignorant of the cultural deep hatreds we ran into was a surprise. So much for life elevated.

We had a State University in our City,and how the recruited Athletes were treated was uncalled for.
