Misguided announcer

I recently attended the rodeo for the first time in more than 50 years. I was stunned by many of the comments and skits. In a lengthy back and forth, one performer made fun of gay people. He said of a black competitor, “Just watch that boy.” (The boy was certainly a grown man.) The announcer said the real heroes of this country are those who take their children to church on Sunday.
