    Unfortunately, [African-Americans] is left to the reader's imagination. Grazie, Michelangelo.

    Yeah, why would you change that? Unless it's a flat-out racial slur there's no reason to do that.

    The change is unnecessary and potentially hurtful. If he said something as innocent as "They" and it was replaced, you're leading readers to believe he said worse. If he said a racial slur, you're ignoring a crucial part of the story.

    Could it be, Chuck punked both Michele Bachmann and Michelangelo Signorile, Editor-at-Large of Huffington Post Gay Voices?

    When a mind so august as Chuck Woolery's no longer sides itself with the angels, we're all fucked.

    Try as they* might, we're sitting at 1966 as far as the LGBT community is concerned when compared to the previous battle. That was the last year that our local high school was completely segregated here, so that's a bad thing looking back and a good thing looking ahead.

    *Who's "they?" It's pretty clear to most.

    Agreed, not sure what his purpose is, but it clearly appears he's is just trying to do a bit here. Sorry, Chuck, Stephen Colbert already cornered the market on the over the top right winger schtick.
