Why is America So Racially charged? This week on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


ABC has cancelled Roseanne Barr’s popular scripted television show after the feisty star went on a Twitter rampage on Tuesday morning referring to former President Barack Obama’s advisor Valerie Jarrett as an ape..

The cancellation announcement came after Roseanne apologized for her offensive tweets and openly lesbian comic Wanda Sykes said she was quitting the show.

Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” Barr tweeted, referring to Jarrett, who is mixed race and originally from Iran.

In other tweets Roseanne mentioned Chelsea Clinton and George Soros as Nazi sympathizers.

The revamped Roseanne Show enjoyed high ratings but was short lived as millions of Trump supporters tuned into the show.

I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.

— Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 29, 2018

Unfortunately her apology was a little too late.

Join host Tracy L. Bell at 6:30 PM EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via Blog Talk Radio for this weeks Conversation “Why is America So Racially charged?”

  1. Yeah I feel bad for the cast and crew considering she wasn’t even the one who worked hard to get the show back on the air.

  2. I know Sara Gilbert is PISSED! She is the one that had the idea of bringing that show back. Now Roseanne has ruined a WHOLE cast & crews paycheck. The shows relaunched was so successful. But I’m pretty sure this was just the last straw with them dealing with Roseanne. I can imagine she was a complete nightmare to deal with behind the scenes anyways.
    Smh

  9. It is surprising that she made this faux pas, but better now than once the show remains on top of the ratings and grabs more viewers’ attention…especially children. Knowing that this statement was made by Roseanne Barr, is disappointing. She has a duty to withhold such comments and understand her impact on the general public as representing a ‘family’ show to America.

    Humor is always a reflection of truth in part. We can’t change her underlying feelings, but at the very least, we know that her brand of implicit bias is full blown racist. Tsk! Tsk!

  18. Sanofi, the maker of Ambien, tweeted:

  19. Yep that was mighty white of her but her white privilege didn’t work for her today. She should have never had a show because she called Susan Rice a monkey back in 2013 and she retweeted a fake photo about Whoopi. What is up with her and black women. She better get her that 1 black friend they always have in the closet so they can tell her she don’t wanna go there with us. Jimmy Kimmell talking bout be kind to her because she is ill. He needs to have several seats because his rich son used Obamacare and her rich azz gonna use it as well.
