Understanding a resemblance in your own head is one thing. What Roseanne did is another.

Read this 10 times. Came across as racist every single time. Wow. And I use to think that you were one of MB's brightest stars. The curtains have been peeled back.

It may be a peculiar trait but one of the few things I find offensive is people getting offended.
So do you think racism is a great idea or what?

Crude and insensitive humor? Sure. Racist? Maybe, but certainly not obviously. If Roseanne said that about some random black person that had no resemblance to a planet of the ape monkey than sure, I'm with you guys, but Valerie Jarret totally does in ridiculous, Batlord stupid humor kind of way.
Wow.

Disagree.

For someone claiming ignorance on the issue, you sure do have a very detailed stance on it.

Some of you sound like the guy who gets told a stereotypical joke that isn't funny and then proceeds to act like you have no idea why it's even a stereotype and deny the reality of the stereotype. Sure, it's not funny, but youre not so dumb that you don't understand it.

I don't disagree that she crossed the line posting that on Twitter.. that was never the discussion. My problem with it is everyone jumping at the opportunity to create yet another race baiting discussion, when we constantly avoid having any actual dialogues regarding the issue.

You read things a lot of times and never seem to grasp them. I'm not surprised. And no you didn't, you've always disliked me, so let's not pretend.

I misunderstood your question. What is your theory exactly?

Denial 101. You and me making that joke is one thing. We can be total insensitive dicks in the shadows. But Roseanne, who again, has a long history, doing it under a glaring spotlight is a completely different thing. Time after time she's been proven to be a douche.

Wait, who's the person in this conversation that sounds like that? Because...uh...

They were planning on cancelling the show long before this and knew that this would be a socially acceptable way to execute that than the ambiguous reason of her not being good PR or having a sustainable fan base.
