Did Brian Williams go too far?

Williams' critics are saying that he crossed a line—even more so than when he lied about being shot at. They’re blasting his comment as not only disrespectful, but as racist. People are wondering how the man still has his job. But not everyone is criticizing Williams. Some are calling those outraged "overly sensitive" in this case. Williams' defenders say political correctness culture is at work again.
