Is it possible Aaryn Gries said the offensive things she said in the "Big Brother" house ... but is NOT racist? Her biggest defender (an actual Black guy!) calls in to try and clean up the giant mess she made.

Plus, Justin Bieber did NOT say the N-word in a new song -- he's the victim of a not-so-clever, mystery enemy who doesn't know how to spell ... according to his camp.

And, Chaz Bono loses a ton of weight -- and everyone is proud of him ... except one person in the newsroom who thinks he's the Barry Bonds of weight loss.

It is more believable that Charlies is a closet racist, Because anytime anyone says are is accused of saying anything in a racist tone hes the first one to call them A RACIST..!!

Do people not understand that what they say, jokingly or strategically, feeds into racial or homophobic biases?
It doesn’t matter if you belong to a minority –because *SURPRISE* even minorities can be racists- or if you have friends that are part of a minority group because *GUESS WHAT* your friends may be unintentionally feeding into the same biases.
What matters is that you take responsibility. In other words, address your ignorance!
Racist acts do not have to be intentionally racist to be considered racist.
Homophobic acts do not have to be intentionally homophobic to be considered homophobic.
Bigoted acts do not have to be intentionally bigoted to be considered offensive.
sometimes you can say something offensive without realizing what you are saying goes beyond being hurtful.
If I call you ugly, it is hurtful. If I call you ugly chink, it is not only hurtful but also offensive.
