Moore added that while he shouldn’t have said it, he has a “long paper trail” of saying offensive shit. Given that Moore was recently under fire for his writings from the early 2000s asserting that women should be banned from refereeing sporting events and that women tennis players want “equal pay for inferior work,” this tracks.

But I have to hand it to Moore, he really hit the white-people-defending-their-racist-shit-very-poorly trifecta flawlessly: Managing to make the word “black” (or, in Moore’s case, “BLACK”) sound like a curse word? Check. Invoking other “BLACKS” who can apparently agree with you? Check. Insisting that it was just a joke at the end of the day? Check.


Only the best people!
