Polls show that more whites believe in ghosts than believe racism is a problem in America. I guess that’s why Ghost Hunters is so popular but my show, Racist Wranglers, never got picked up. Maybe the reason is how we define racism.
Donald Sterling is not a racist.
In his own mind.
Paula Deen, Cliven Bundy, Don Imus. Not racists.
To their family, closest friends and adoring pets, they’re just plain-speaking Americans who have probably said the phrase, “I don’t care if you’re white, black, yellow, or purple.” (FYI: You might be a racist if you’ve used that phrase.)
That’s why their faces have that shocked “Who me?” expression at the public outrage over their statements.
