Cuba Gooding Jr.

RIPS Bartender in Fight Clip

'She's Racist!'

Cuba Gooding Jr.
called a female bartender a "RACIST" for kicking him out of a New Orleans drinking establishment this week -- and the heated exchange was all caught on tape.

TMZ broke the story ... cops issued an arrest warrant for Cuba following the incident at The Old Absinthe House on Bourbon Street early Tuesday morning -- when the bartender said Cuba shoved her for telling him to leave the pub.

According to the bartender, Cuba was intoxicated and had gotten angry at other bar patrons for taking pictures of him ... at which point, she told Cuba to get lost. That's when she says Cuba roughed her up.

The video cuts in right after Cuba leaves the bar, and the brunette follows him into the street, telling someone to "call the cops right now."

Cuba tells onlookers, "She's racist. She's racist. She doesn't like me." Moments later, another bystander yells, "He took a woman and he shoved her!"

But Cuba probably won't be prosecuted -- as we reported, management at The Old Absinthe House just announced the bartender won't be pressing charges.

She's racist because you got drunk and thrown out of a bar for stupid behavior? Cuba, go home to your wife and kids. Why are you out at a bar, when your a family man?

racism is a dead word. It's been completely neutered and de-fanged by overuse such as demonstrated here. I don't even pay attention to the word anymore; in fact, i just laugh it off because i know it's probably bull**** if someone claims it.

Better find a new word, because racism doesn't mean anything but "crying wolf" now.

The issue of race and its influence upon how people view others and the world is very much alive today. A recent study done by Harvard University indicates that 75% of non-whites exhibit unconscious biases towards non-whites. It is just as real as ever, it is just more covert nowadays.

The most racist individuals are those who claim they are not, enter our hero Cuba Gooding and his hatred towards off black human beings. Educated at the Jackson & Sharpton Fellowship of Failures

I'm 58, white, and grew up in Detroit, and live right outside that city now. I've been hearing that racist thing for 45 years. After 10 years of hearing it, you get tired of it. After 45 years, you REALLY get sick of it.

As soon as someone of color does something wrong they yell RACIST....I use to like Cuba Gooding, however,since he is a woman beater AND a racist I no longer care to see his movies or ANYTHING he appears on. Go cry on the great Rev's Sharpton & Jackson!!!!
