And in today’s edition of old white men that say ignorant things, we bring you actor Gary Oldman. In an interview with Playboy, he had these delightful gems of wisdom to impart:
The policeman who arrested [Mel Gibson] has never used the word n—-r or that f—–g Jew? I’m being brutally honest here. It’s the hypocrisy of it that drives me crazy. . . . We all hide and try to be so politically correct. That’s what gets me.
And then he went on to defend Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin. We’re not even surprised by this sort of thing anymore, but it sure doesn’t mean we don’t want to catapult Commissioner Gordon out of a cannon.
Team Blackness also discusses the water crisis in Detroit, a four year old who foils a racist home invasion plot, and the power of the black vote.
