Sure as anything if you weren’t prepared for this little tid-bit of childish racism please see The Thinker, for Friday June 22, 2007, entitled, “Fired the Wrong Guy.” It seems our ever so arrogant-sensitivity training-rehab seeking-liar, Mr. Isaiah Washington, NOW believes he was let go from the cast of the hugely successful television series, Grey’s Anatomy well of course, because he’s black.
Good gracious almighty already! This claim is like a suicide bomb waiting to explode! Hello Todd Bridges, H-E-L-P! Before Mr. Washington goes on to hurt some innocent person without cause someone please help this guy.
Obviously he’s got some real issues and before we puff him up and make him some kind of poster or choir boy, in other words, give him an Academy Award out of sympathy, let’s not reward the inexplicable behavior and his grasping at anything for spin control. Or maybe he’s just getting counsel from the good Doctor’s Hilton, Spears, and Lohan.
Not speaking for anyone but myself here, but we all have seen and know how these “celebrity types” manipulate just about everything to advance their own causes, al la, Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Crystal Gail Mangum, Mel Gibson, Imus, and even the not-too-well-thought out plans of the Black Panther’s for making something out of nothing. Please consider what Isaiah Washington stated on June, 22:
“They fired the wrong guy,” Washington insisted. “I have to clear my name. I’ll start from the beginning. I’m telling everything. So here’s the truth.”
Wait just a minute here…are we to infer that you did somehow NOT tell the truth the first time? Face it…the guy let his mouth run…made some comments he regrets making. So what’s new? Everyone at one time or another has done the same thing…apologize and be on with it. But noo..
“I feel all this was about him getting a raise and getting his character to stop being perceived as a dopey, cooky kind of character. He perceives himself as a leading man. That’s why you could see the change this past season. That was his whole impetus behind it,” Washington said. “I was used and I was exploited. I may be wrong but that’s how I feel about it.”
Wait up here…Isaiah Washington calls a fellow co-worker a “faggot” does the rehab—sensitivity training bit and you feel exploited? Yes! You are in fact wrong, Mr. Washington. C’mon man own up!
Now it is only getting worse; In a Newsweek Magazine article of June 29, 2007 Mr. Washington now believes he was let go from Grey’s Anatomy because he is black. Moreover, he further states that “…America can’t find it in its heart to forgive an African-American.”
Washington continued, “If a black man can’t get forgiveness in this country, when so many other people like Robert Downey Jr. and the governor of California get second and third chances… I think that says a lot about race and this country, where we stand.”
The only difficulty perceived here is the fact that Mr. Isaiah Washington cannot and will not take attribution for what he’s done; moreover, to drag all of these other issues and people into his sty is ridiculous and absurd. Wake up, man.
