Be a Black man in Hollywood who is not gay and use the word “faggot.”  You’ll never work again—at least not in the mainstream.  But be a white man in Hollywood caught on tape calling for his girlfriend to get rapped by a “pack of niggers,”—and it’s business as usual.

Now to be frank, I could care less about Mel Gibson, really I could.  He doesn’t do anything for me.  But what I do care about is the deafening silence from the oh so politically correct gay community who literally ruined my man Isaiah Washington’s career behind hearsay when media reports said that Washington grabbed Grey’s Anatomy co-star Patrick Dempsey by the throat during an argument and called co-star T.R. Knight a “faggot” in 2006. An even though Washington issued a statement apologizing for his “unfortunate use of words during the recent incident on-set,” when the cast appeared at the Golden Globes in January 2007 Washington, in response to press queries as to any conflicts backstage, said that he had never referred to Knight as a “faggot” and it was off with his head.  Even though in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Knight said he never directly heard Washington use the epithet in the first damn place.

Now you tell me which is worse, an actor’s alleged use of the word “faggot”—alleged because to my knowledge, video or audio of the initial incident has yet to surface or an actor’s audio recordings calling a woman a whore, cunt, and being told she’s asking to get raped by a “pack of niggers?”

No don’t tell me–I’ll tell you.  Mel Gibson’s rant is much worse.  One because there is no alleged to it, that’s his voice and his threats.  It’s not third party unverified information taking for truth because it came from gay America’s poster boy.

This isn’t apples and oranges.  Isaiah’s an actor, Mel’s an actor.  And just like gays were offended by the his alleged use of the word “faggot” they should be all over Mel’s blatant use of the word “nigger” not to mention “cunt,” and “whore,” I’m just saying.  Hate speech is hate speech.

Aren’t Black gays a part of gay America?  Might they be offended?  Aren’t white gays still trying prove they’re down with the Black community so they can get them to co-sign on marriage?  It takes more than just moving into our neighbrohoods to show you’re down. So what the hell are you waiting for—an evite in your inbox to denounce Gibson’s racist tirade?  I mean really—you and I just know it’s just a press release.  That you aren’t going to really spend the same amount of time and energy you spent on ruining Izzie’s career on Mel Gibson.  But for appearances sake, I’d think that you’d want to go ahead and get a statement up and out.  I’m just saying, it would have saved me from having to type this.

Many of us want to see the same effort that went into blacklisting Isaiah Washington hurled at Mel Gibson from the gay community.  Shit you run Hollywood, well you and those other people Mel doesn’t particularly care for either.

And no—this is not an invitation for you to speak up for or on behalf of Black people, gay or otherwise—so don’t get any ideas for your puppets.  This is a one time only invite—or until the next B or A list white actor/actress says something racist towards Blacks, for you to practice what you preach–courtesy of Mel the racist Gibson.
