Why do sports talk show hosts misprounounce the names of athletes of African descent?


Why do Sports talk hosts not take the time to learn the proper pronounciation of names of athletes of African descent? Is it because the athletes themselves do not know how and never bother to correct beacuse they were born here?For example Okafor of the washington wizards is mispronounced as Okofor the "a" between the k and r should sound like the a in apple.
