It's odd how quickly people will defend racist bullshit by saying "Oh, but he's not a racist." Who cares? What matters in life is what you DO, not what you claim is in your heart.
It reminds me of Jimmy the Greek who made comments about black people being natural athletes because they were “bred to be that way”. As if he was talking about German Shepherds and not people. To his credit he acknowledged what he said was very stupid but it justifiably ended his career as a broadcaster. Jimmy had plenty of support as well from people who insisted he wasn’t a racist, including black former colleagues, but CBS would have none of it.

Jimmy later tried to sue CBS, claiming that his firing was discriminatory (irony!) due to his age, but lost.
