1/2 A Man: Charlie Sheen Goes On A Racist Rant

Thursday, June 19, 2008

Dear Charlie,

I think your time is done now. In a way it's too bad because I actually liked that show you were on, and while I could only hope they would replace you with someone else who doesn't go into racist rants, they probably won't, and might just ride it out or cancel the show altogether - either which way - you'll be off the air soon enough as you should.

At the same time, I wanted to thank you as well, because you're just another shining example that no matter how many people of color someone may have in their life - and ones that they probably point to so they can say "Look at my friends" to prove they don't have a racist bone in their body - that they can still go off on racist rants.
