Because after I thought about it, I realized no matter what anyone says, you just aren't going to get it, so why bother, and I deleted my own post. Perhaps I'll give it one more try.

Thank you for proving my point, and showing that you are utterly clueless. Maybe I shouldn't give it one more try.

Valerie is black. Her "not appearing to have any Negroid features" (fuck me, did you actually write that?) doesn't change the fact that she's black. Go look up a picture of her daughter Laura while you're at it. (Nevermind... you'll probably just think she's "really tan.")

Please... I read it with zero preconceptions when it first happened... first thing I thought was "fuckin' racist piece of shit."
But I guess, since the MSM (is that a buzzword?) agrees with a bunch of individuals who also feel the same way, it must be a conspiracy to bring Roseanne down, not actually racist, right?
Yeah... I should really stop now... I'm just wasting energy.

Yup... I'm just feeding the troll by now.

Not like anyone here glosses over stuff here, amiright?

I really do wish God would bless the USA a little bit right now, because we need it.
You don't believe it was racist. The whole of MAMEWorld could come down here and disagree with you, and you would STILL believe you are right.
So you must be right after all. Sorry for wasting your time. My sincerest apologies.
