Gay Bigot Isaiah Washington Makes Noble Donation

What a coincidence. Isaiah Washington has decided -- just at this very moment -- to make a very public donation to a project that will detail the slave trade. Hmm, this wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that Washington was revealed as an ugly bigot who not only attacked a fellow actor, but then lied about it to the world at the Globes and expected everyone else to play along, would it? And if this isn't the most cynical, shameless attempt to use the historical atrocities of the slave trade to rehabilitate his image, than why the hell did he make it public? Frankly, since Washington dehumanizes other people who are different from them and uses slurs to attack and belittle them, he has a lot more in common with the slave TRADERS than he does with the people who suffered under them. This man has an extremely lucrative job on one of the most popular TV shows in the world, but can't stop himself from calling a co-worker a faggot. And now he wants to link himself to the injustice of people who were seen by others as less than human? He should have been fired. Anyone who used the "n" word with Wahsington most certainly would have been.

I love the show Grey's Anatomy and I used to really like his character but this behaviour has really left a bad taste in my mouth whenever I see him on the show. If there were any justice he'd have been sacked or written out of the show. The producers keeping him as part of the cast seems almost an endorsement of his behaviour. Its a disgrace.

Yup, he's on the road to "recovery" cynical and so predictable...surprised he's not off to Vietnam to pick up the latest fashion accessory in orphans.
