    I'm not gonna go as far as to say he's racist. But he still stepped out of line period. When the crowed is giving you a hard time , thats where experience, and being a professional about it comes in. And he clearly did not handle it professionaly.

    I never liked the show anyway. Drew Carey show was better.

    I can appreciate the apology, but his claim of not being racist is flawed IMO. If he had dropped the N word once perhaps I buy it, but saying it the way he did would suggest to me he said what he meant.

    Racist for saying ******? Give me a break. Black people say it all the time. As friends, we joke around and call each other that. You'd be surprised what you would say in the heat of the moment. You take that persons features and turn it against them, whether they're a fat white guy, skinny asian, tall black, etc. If it was a fat person, OH NOES HE HATES TEH FAT PPL!!!!11

    Which part don't you get?

    One of my friends called me a cracker I wouldn't blink.
    Another white person called me a cracker I'd tell him to go **** himself.
    A black person called me a cracker and there'd be some trouble.

    If you are trying to defend someone saying

    "Shut up! Fifty years ago we'd have you upside down with a f------ fork up your a--."
    Then goes on to use the N word repeatedly....

    You have a real problem, and you are part of the problem that makes it even worse. I don't waste anger, but I do feel sorry for you. You dont need to reply to me, I'm just a brown man.

    It is hard truly understand the perspective. There is a symbolism behind that word to African Americans far stronger than someone outside their culture can understand. Like a swastika to a Jew, it cuts hard and painfully. Is he a racist? To some extent yes, but he clearly has some other issues to be so venomous in his scathing vituperations. If he was being a comic, he would have been funny, not vicious.

    Luck is where preparation meets opportunity - Seneca

    "Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'" - Isaac Asimov

    It is my ambition to say in ten sentences what others say in a whole book. - Friedrich Nietzsche
