According to The Daily News:
Comedian Katt Williams isn’t really sorry for an anti-Mexican rant he made during a performance, he said on CNN on Saturday morning.
In fact, despite an apology attributed to him released by his publicist earlier this week, Williams said he “meant what I said and said what I meant.”
The controversial comments were caught in a video posted online. Williams, who was performing at the Celebrity Theater in Phoenix, asked a man in the crowd if he was a Mexican.
“It appears to me y’all like it over here a lot,” he said.
“Do you remember when white people used to say ‘Go back to Africa,’ and we’d have to tell them we don’t want to? So if you love Mexico, (expletive), get the (expletive) over there!”
It then got ugly – and Williams finished the argument with “We were slaves (expletive). You just work like that as landscapers.”
Williams said on CNN that he was just defending his country to one man – but couldn’t be racist because he had so many Mexican fans.
“If I had disrespected Mexicans, I wouldn’t have been able to get out of there alive,” the hot-mouthed comic said.
The non-apology was a quick turnaround from a statement his publicist released earlier in the week profusely apologizing for the bad joke.
I say, go ahead and disrespect Mexicans; disrespect anybody you want. Just tell the truth. If Mexicans find the truth to be disrespectful, then that would be their problem, not the speaker’s. Now that whites have lost almost all self-respect and pride in their own heritage, perhaps there is a chance that they can relearn it from blacks and Mexicans. If whites can reinfect themselves with tuberculosis, leprosy and God knows what else from the third world, then why can’t they also reinfect themselves with a healthy dose of racial pride and solidarity?
