Oh I’d say it was pretty insulting. I’ll bet Trump found it insulting.

Not as much as Game of Thrones displaying Gw's head on a pike.

I agree with Roseanne, but she is blinking like a mad woman in the official statement video. Perhaps she's just feeling super passionate... But damn that's an insane amount of blinking.




I was thinking the same thing, but then again, her career got ruined for her opinion, she's probably stressed.

Classic case of Trump voter derangement syndrome.

They all have the victim complex, even though they won.

She made a racist tweet and got fired.
That is the world we live in today and not knowing that is not an excuse.

I think not knowing it was racist is a damm good excuse..

She thinks VJ was white how is it racist? A white person to another white person.

Lol. What a mess. Only whites are racist is BS, we know that isn't true... But can whites be racist against whites now, if they think the person is white?? This is why identity politics is toxic. It's such a slippery slope. Who knows where this eventually will end up.

Ooooh. I get it now! I can make all the racist jokes I want as long as I think the recipient is white, and I'm rich. Or all of the violent imagery, and pedo jokes I want as well.

Takes a big load off of my mind.
/end sarcasm

Is it so hard to try to at least *act* civilized any more?!

There is a difference between insulting and purely offensive.

If I do a image holding a decapitated transgender person, do I get to call it a "joke"?

I'll answer that cause I'm sure she won't be honest.

Hell no. Hate crime! The left would devour your soul!

I don't believe she didn't know Jarrett was black so comparing her to a baby monkey is racist.
Shes playing ignorant to cover her ass.

Did you see the picture of VJ? I still think she is white. Anyone can make that mistake.

Roseanne is looking a liitle beat down, I actually feel sorry for her.

She posted this video on her personal YOUTUBE account trying to explain her tweet was a joke and she thought VJ was white.

I still think she is white lol



It was just a damm joke from a Comedian. If everyone that ever told racist a joke or used the N word lost their job nobody would be employed .

I guess she is going to try and do a talk show? If she does I will watch just because Im pissed and want to give her ratings..




eta
Wow here is a video of her saying she was fired because she voted Trump..

Her official statement ..












Well see, there's your problem. Your perception of black is, unsurprisingly, judging the color of her skin.

Her late father, James E. Bowman, was black (born to black parents, even). Her mother, Barbara T. Bowman, is white. Valerie Jarrett is mixed:

On the television series Finding Your Roots, DNA testing indicated that Jarrett is of 49% European, 46% African, and 5% Native American descent. Among her European roots, she was found to have French and Scottish ancestry.

I imagine she thought she could make a racist joke because she thought Valerie was white.

Maybe one shouldn't use a racist joke about someone at all?

We learned from the best!

Trump critics.

No, a large portion of the Republican party has always been whiners unable to face up to being wrong.
