Um…speaking of an inability to show self awareness:
BOSTON ? A Boston police officer who was suspended for using a racial slur to describe black Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., apologized for his comments but declared he is not a racist.
…”It was a poor choice of words. I did not mean to offend anyone,” he told the station.
“I am not a racist, I never have been, never will be. I treat people with dignity and respect every time,” he added.
Dude. I’m pretty sure referring to a black person as a “banana eating jungle monkey” is just a wee bit racist. No, sorry. It’s completely and totally racist!
His pathetic excuse?
“The words were being used to characterize behavior, not describe anyone,” Barrett told WCVB-TV.
Please. I’m sure you call all your stupid white friends jungle monkeys! I thought Glenn Beck might win this week’s complete fucking idiot award, but I give that to you Justin Barrett.
