Just saw on DrudgeReport that Sean Penn’s son had an altercation with a photographer, saying ‘F**k you, n***er’.
When I read that, I interpreted it as ‘Fuck you, nutter’. And I kind of laughed, thinking nutter was an odd word to use.
Then I saw the article, and realized the photographer was a black man.
And then I thought, ‘Wait a minute. The Hollywood ilk are supposed to be the most un-racist people of all. As a Southern conservative, I am supposed to be very racist. Why, then, didn’t I think of the ‘n’ word when I read that headline?’
Because despite what I’m stereotyped as, I’m not racist. That word doesn’t even really exist for me. But, apparently it does for Sean Penn’s son. Way to go, Hollywood.
And for the record, the photographer didn’t want to press charges. Guess he’s not racist, either.
