    Or am I getting Roseanne Barr's racist tweets mixed-up?
    She does that stuff for sure.

    But somewhere out there is a talented white writer. So why work with black people if she hates them?

    Frankly, I don't care that she's a racist. Not my problem.
    But by your own account, she's a racist so you are invested enough to label her as such, correct?

    Liberals often accuse Trump of being a racist even in the absence of any proof. It does not take proof for libs to get hot and bothered, all it takes is unfounded suspicion of racism.

    Well, you must be very happy that all of those other people are fired as well. You liberals are a vengeful lot.

    In part, because this one tweet does not constitute everything that she is. Also, because its ugliness makes us want to take immediate action. So we end up killing her show, firing hundreds of people, and losing something that millions of people enjoyed.

    Some of things I read here include her wanting to have a black girlfriend for her white child, her wanting to have a gay character (which I guess the request was turned down), and stuff like that. She also partners with black people, like Wanda Sykes. So it does not feel like hate black people in general, but perhaps she just hates liberals in politics and gets stupid when trying to insult them.

    The internet is always a lynch mob when it comes to justice. So, it makes me think that even though she was wrong, and stupid too, perhaps all that happened was more than needed to.

    Interested in your thoughts.
    The mob is innocent. The mob did nothing but bark. ABC. took action, not the mob.

    Yes. I'm confident in my assessment. Then again, I don't really care that she's a racist. Why does it mean so much to you to deny that she is?

    Why the illogical jump to such an inappropriate conclusion. You mad?

    Because the ones who claim Roseanne is racist support Bill Maher.

    I don't support Bill Maher, but what if I did? How would that mediate Roseanne Barr's blatant acts of racism?
