    Does that bother you as much as it bothers me? Gus Johnson, the guy doing the GMU/UNC game right now on CBS is black but is speaking with an accent that I KNOW isn't natural. No black people talk like that. I'm a generally pessimistic guy, but I just find this SO amazingly annoying. Mike Tirico is guilty of this too, but not as much as Johnson.

    I'm probably alone, but anyone agree!?!?

    No.

    Steven A Jackson doesn't sound white or Greg Anothony for that matter. Talk to them on a phone and you would tell they were black.

    lol @ Charles barkley sounding white. Fuck outta here. When Ernie trys to sound like Barkley he sounds like a complete asshat.
