Ben Stein is racist.
Stella Parton is racist.
Scott Adams is racist.
Racism is a part of daily life in America, whether it is as overt as people marching around in Klan uniforms or as subtle as someone making passive-aggressive negative comments about Black people in our presence.
As much as we want to give most white people the benefit of the doubt, there usually comes a time when even our faves (or their siblings) disappoint us by saying something so outlandishly racist it’s hard to ignore.
I had a recent experience on Facebook with a former co-worker who I always thought was just a nice older white lady. She showed up in the comments of one of my posts and completely showed her ass, and she doubled, tripled and quadrupled down on her ignorance even when she was called out by her fellow white people.Here is a list of white people I was extremely disappointed to find out were (undercover) racists
For theGrio, I wrote about how I was shocked and disappointed to find out that Ben Stein, Stella Parton and comic strip author Scott Adams are raging racists.
Ben Stein told the world he misses when a big Black woman was on the syrup bottle. Apparently, the mammy trope is a source of comfort for him.
Stella Parton is out here embarrassing her big sister by claiming white people are the victims of reverse discrimination and racism.
Scott Adams called Black people as a whole a “hate group.”
It’s not enough that every single day in the United States feels like we are barreling back toward the days of Jim Crow.
Rich and famous white people have to keep coming out and showing us how racist and bigoted they are.
We are living in the upside down.
