'Big Brother' Castmember

Family Comes to His Defense ...

He's Not Racist!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Caleb Reynolds Racist
"Big Brother" did so well with an alleged racist last season ... they're doing it again, but this time the family of a man who made racial and homophobic slurs has come to his defense.

Caleb Reynolds -- one of the new "Big Bro" housemates -- called Prez Obama a "Muslim monkey" and he also used a homophobic slur, but his family 86'd his entire Instagram account after a torrent of criticism.

But Reynolds' family members tell TMZ ... Caleb is being judged for something he wrote two years ago, not long after he returned home from a tour in Iraq. His brother tells us, "A racist man doesn't fight next to a black man for this country."

A friend of Caleb's ... who is black ... also posted a video on YouTube this week defending Caleb. 

"Big Brother" premieres tonight.  Ratings went up dramatically after Aaryn Gries went on a racist rant last season.  We'll see what happens this time around.

By the way ... there's no way CBS didn't know about this ... they do background checks on all contestants for reality shows and scour social media.

Stoke the racist fires, CBS. Anything for ratings, eh? And whether Obama is a Muslim or not, he IS anti-American.

Who knew he's friends with Aretha Franklin? So he's NOT racist? But he's STILL a homophobe? Which makes him a #bigot

He calls the president of the United States a monkey, but yet this Uncle Tom friend who actually does resemble a monkey makes a youtube video to defend this racist closeted waste of life. Typical.

As annoying as these stories are, this is how these people LEARN what racism is. It appears time and time again that they consider it 'joking' but it really is ignorance.

It seems this website has become a never ending series of these kinds of stories. Racist and he's not racist stories that is, and don't forget the polls

How is being a homophobe being a racist? Being gay is not a race.
