Derek Jeter Talks to Barbara Walters About Racism

Did you miss Barbara Walters' Most Fascinating People Of 2011 show last night? We can't really say we blame you. So, let us fill you in. On the show, she featured the Kardashians (sigh), Simon Cowell, and Derek Jeter, who no doubt appeared because he got the 3000th hit of his career this past season. However, Walters steered clear of much baseball talk and instead tried to pry a little deeper into the life of the legendary Yankees shortstop. No, she didn't get around to asking him about the gift baskets he reportedly hands out to his one-night stands. But she did delve into how racism has affected him in his life—and even brought up the N-word to him. His response isn't exactly "fascinating," but it is interesting to hear him talk about the subject. Give a listen.
