If you haven't heard, Mel Gibson is a revolting racist and misogynistic human being.
He proved that point yet again with the release of an audio recording of an argument he had with his baby momma, Oksana Grigorieva, in which he called her a "pig," hoped she would get raped and dropped the "N."
Leon Jenkins, President of NAACP, was quick to respond, saying:
“It is unfortunate that a man of his statue and admiration, who has made his millions off of women, African-Americans and Jews harbor such racist, sexist, and anti-Semitic feeling against people who have admired and respected him for decades.
An apology is insufficient given his history of racism, sexism and anti Semitism. He has set one of the worse examples for our young children and adults at a time when this country is making significant progress in moving toward a color-blind society. No amount of words will change his image as an out of date and out of control racist. Only a sustained period of positive acts can his legacy be redeemed."
And even then, we will be skeptical.
We've been down this road with him before. Sometimes, you just can't remove the hate out of a person's heart.
Sad, but true.
