    Ex-`Grey's' star cites racism for firing

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070628/...sSuw_Tuo62GL8C

    Why would he assume it is racism?? He said two anti-gay slurs that is why he was fired and one was after he was warned not to do it again.

    What is it these days about blaming it on racism why not just take responsibility that your a jerk and you cant go around saying your prejudice crap.

    You know I don't care what a person's race, religion, or sexual preference... We are all just plain and simply Human Beings...

    For crying out loud... why is it so difficult for some people to learn that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction...

    Ultimately, it is all about being able to Accept Responsibility for ones own actions!

    His handler/manager really needs to tell him to shut the **** up if he wants to work again. He's making a HUGE azz out of himself. He's not the only person to ever be fired, but, boy, he sure acts like it.

    For the record, I love Grey's and loved his character, however, I don't care for him as a person.

    Why is it they always blame it on race? When they have nothing else to blame it on, they place the race card.

    It NEVER fails for this to happen. If anything (other than something good) happens to a black person, well it's because they're black.
    Get fired from a job, after making racist comments and losing viewers, it's because you're black.
    Speed and get a ticket, it's because you're black.
    Fail to pay your taxes and the IRS comes after you, it's because you're black.
    I know I will be flamed for my comments but I am sick of this race card crap.

    I saw something on ET, he's going to be playing a priest in a new series that airs in '08. I never watched Greys.
    It's always a shame when race is used a "reason" for something. I agree, I feel everyone should be beyond that. Especially when it's obvious race had nothing to do with it.

    Gee White, so every black person in America plays the race card eventually huh? Every single black person in the US must be a race card time bomb to you...

    I liked him too, especially on the show and was willing to give him a break after his bigoted comments about Gays... He should of kept his stupid mouth shut, but no, he had to try and turn his awful comments around, now I could care less if I ever see him again.

    I know nothing about this situation, but I can say...in my case I dealt with racism growing up. Sometimes it's subtle, sometimes it's in your face. It causes you to be a little sensitive. It hurts. As a ninth grader, I attended a school that was 95% caucasian. I remember being in the hall after bell (going to class). There were also 3 caucasian girls grouped talking by their lockers...no intentions on going to class while I was rushing trying to get there. I was the only one directed to the office. Maybe race didn't play a part, but I sure felt like it did. Or, when a parent comes to meet me (I provide daycare part time in an almost all white neighborhood), the shock and disappointment on their face, is that b/c of race? I don't know. But it feels that way. I have never been and will never be the type to scream discrimination, but in my heart I've felt it.

    Geesh! What do you mean by "they"? He was fired by the creator of the show who also hired him - Shonda Rhimes - a black woman. "He" is a jerk who decided to cry racism but, it is pretty easy to see that for what it is. He was fired because he is as big mouthed jerk - imo. So please, keep it about him and not "they"!

    Jannuncutt is now my favorite person of the day

    In my opinion, I totally agree Mr. Washington has proved to be an a$$ to cry racism in this aspect. But more than one person in this thread have already claimed all blacks play the race card when things don't go thier way.

    I have a feeling that may have fallen through.... if he's decided to sue, it can't be good for this movie.

    But, I can't understand how he is comfortable calling a gay man a derogatory name... and making excuses for it, and yet it's all about "racism" when something happens to him?

    Excellent post and I completely agree!

    I'm a Grey's Anatomy fan and I'm sad to see the character of "Burke" go, but not sad to see IW go.
