You seriously need an explanation for why calling a black person a monkey is racist?


One of the funny things about too many occasions of right-wing "there's nothing wrong here" syndrome is when the speaker themselves apologizes for what was said.
Roseanne:
I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.

‘Roseanne’s’ Wanda Sykes Leaving After Star’s ‘Ape’ Comment

Quote:
Wanda Sykes, a consulting producer on “Roseanne,” says she will not be returning to the ABC show’s second revival season after star Roseanne Barr made an offensive comment about one of former President Barack Obama’s senior advisers.
Wanda Sykes not liking comparing someone to a primate?????

Hmmmmmm...

Anyone wanna watch Wanda Sykes comparing Trump to a primate?...

According to ABC logic, she should've never been hired...

And you'll be seeing many articles of people ABC hires and keeps on their payroll that have said MUCH worse than Rosanne ever did. (This is not a defense of Roseanne's tweet...It showing the hypocrisy of ABC)...


Hey!...Didn't ESPN (ABC's subsidiary) just re-re-re-hire Keith Olbermann?...

Guess this is A-OK...



And, of course, ABC's very own Joy Behar saying Republicans have a penchant for Nazis and calling Christianity a mental illness...among many other offensive things...

We can go on & on...When Roseanne attacks one person, it's a firable offense, but when other ABC employees attack millions (but are SAFE Liberal targets), they just keep on truckin'...

Because THAT'S "different"...

Like when Alec Baldwin apologizes multiple times for offending gays and still gets jobs? Ironically getting his recent work imitating Trump on a major network?...

Kinda like that?...

Truth is, I'm not saying "there's nothing wrong here"...

I just want ABC (and others) to hold EVERY employee to the same standards...Throwing Roseanne under the bus is hunky-dory with me....AS LONG AS they do the same damn thing to many others who have said MUCH worse...

...and that's not going to happen...
