I thought it might be the color of the paint. Thank you Yochanan.

What a putz!

Tropic Thunder was a satire, like "Two White Chicks." Since satire is meant to expose the vices of society by holding them up to ridicule, there is more leeway there than in other genres. No one believes, for example, that Swift really endorsed cannibalism in "A Modest Proposal." There is a difference between making fun of racism and our racial obsession in an edgy way, and actually manifesting racial insensitivity. (BTW, Of course boorish behavior is protected by the First Amendment, but that does not make it a good thing).

Wow, just like this: Watch from 14:58 - Strikingly similar!

WSC -- I've seen Mel Gibson get all stubborn and refuse to apologize, but none of this fake non-apology apology.

Okay, it's not like he blackened his face out with coal soot and acted like a buffoon (any more than usual).

Didn't anyone see Robert Downey Jr. in Tropic Thunder?

I'm just bringing a bit of perspective here. I'd like the differentiation to be addressed, at the very least.

BTW, you see the Harlem Shake" videos? How are those not racist?

Not an apology, sorry Mr. Hikind.

The reporter who asked him if he was drunk is a complete idiot and should be fired. Hikind should hav told him that his qustion was inappropriate and irrelevant and not answered him.

Never ceases to amaze me how a politician can be such a clueless putz...

He never said that he did something wrong or even insensitive. He gave a very Mel Gibson type of pseudo-apology. " I am sorry if anyone was offended" is not the same as 'I am sorry for being so insensitive; my ignorance of history has a lot to do with it'.
