Isaiah Washington — sanity lost

The whole faggotrehabfiring nonsense should be done. We got an Ann Coulter moment from it, Washington has explained what he claims really happened and it’s over, right? Another drama in the workplace, resolved by the administration of a swift Spanish Archer?

Well, no. Isaiah Washington, the firee, has claimed that racism was a factor in his firing. Well, he might be right, I guess (I don’t know enough to say either way) but this is constructing a pretty weird case:

“Well, it didn’t help me on the set that I was a black man who wasn’t a mush-mouth Negro walking around with his head in his hands all the time. I didn’t speak like I’d just left the plantation and that can be a problem for people sometime,” he said.

“I had a person in human resources tell me after this thing played out that ‘some people’ were afraid of me around the studio. I asked her why, because I’m a 6-foot-1, black man with dark skin and who doesn’t go around saying ‘Yessah, massa sir’ and ‘No sir, massa’ to everyone?

Way to go to war with pretty much everyone, guy.
