To be honest, I don't see how the term "hablaing espanol" is racially insenitive. It's maybe a tad distasteful, though. However, Steve Lyons has been known in the past to have made insensitive comments, particularly about Shawn Green's religion. He was the only commentator to blast him for taking the day off on Yom Kippur. Fox certainly had more sufficient grounds for firing Lyons on that one, but refused to do so.
