his own 10-minute segment that, unbelievably, was never censored by CBS.
He's probably the only one who could have gotten away with this.
Andy Rooney once said . . "I don't think being a minority makes you a
victim of anything except numbers.
The only things I can think of that are
truly discriminatory are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet
Magazine, Black Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America.
Try to have things like the United Caucasian College Fund, Cloud Magazine,
White Entertainment Television, or Miss White America; and see what
happens...Jesse Jackson will be knocking down your door. With Al Sharpton
Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a
killer. You can kill someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is
trying to ban you from driving to the ball game.
I believe they are called the Boy Scouts for a reason, which is why there
are no girls allowed. Girls belong in the Girl Scouts! ARE YOU
LISTENING MARTHA BURKE?
I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is not a phobia, it is
I have the right 'NOT' to be tolerant of others because they are
different, weird, or tick me off.
When 70% of the people who get arrested are black, in cities where 70% of
the population is black, that is not racial profiling; it is the Law of
I believe that if you are selling me a milkshake, a pack of cigarettes, a
newspaper or a hotel room, you must do it in English! As a matter of

My father and grandfather didn't die in vain so you can leave the
countries you were born in to come over and disrespect ours.
I think the police should have every right to shoot you if you threaten
them after they tell you to stop. If you can't understand the word
'freeze' or 'stop' in English, see the above lines.
I don't think just because you were not born in this country, you are
qualified for any special loan programs, government-sponsored bank loans
or tax breaks, etc., so you can open a hotel, coffee shop, trinket store,
or any other business.
We did not go to the aid of certain foreign countries and risk our lives
in wars to defend their freedoms so that decades later they could come
over here and tell us our constitution is a living document, and open to

I know pro wrestling is fake, but so are movies and television. That
doesn't stop you from watching them.
I think Bill Gates has every right to keep every penny he made and
continue to make more. If it ticks you off, go and invent the next
operating system that's better, and put your name on the building.

I think tattoos and piercing are fine if you want them, but please don't

'African-Americans'? Besides, Africa is a continent.
