'Big Brother' Star Aaryn Gries

I'm Working Out My Racist Demons

EXCLUSIVE

0920-Aaryn-Gries-cbs
"Big Brother" contestant Aaryn Gries is finally coming clean, admitting she talks like a racist ... but she insists it doesn't make her one.

Gries tells TMZ she's been making racial jokes for years  ... but had no idea they were offensive because "no one had expressed that I was taken that way."

Gries says she wishes someone had warned her before going into the BB house ...  that making these "jokes" on national TV would paint her as a big ol' racist.

"I am not a racist," she says, adding, "Sometimes you can say mindless things that will haunt you."

Aaryn also apologized for throwing Texas under the bus when Julie Chen asked if she was a racist during her exit interview from the house -- explaining, "Blaming Texas was the biggest mistake I made ... I was in defense mode."

Guess Aaryn forgot about the gay housemate she called a "queer" ... and all the Asian people she mocked ... and the African Americans ...

Modern day racists are very rarely the blatant KKK types from the past. Today it is more subtle and many times the racists don't even realize they are racist.

She also said: "Hey, Aunt Jemima, make me some pancakes" about Candice (African-American)
Oh, evidently she's not a racist, huh?

The only cure for her form of racism is to be gang banged by an entire tribe of Mandingo Warriors.

Did she ever blame Candice and Howard for being black?... because if they weren't black, maybe all this wouldn't have happened...

What a sell out, I would never apologize for something like that. The girl is clearly not a racist she dated black guys in the past liberals are vicious people.

The only way I'll believe her claim is if she makes her next public appearance in Black Face.
