Comedian Katt Williams Thinks Racism is 'Pro-American' (VIDEO)

Katt WilliamsComedian Katt Williams is one confused American. After getting in trouble over a racist anti-immigrant rant directed at a Mexican man in his audience, Williams apologized. But now he's saying he's not sorry at all. He's just a patriot.

Just a few days after saying he didn't mean to offend anyone, Williams showed up on CNN to announce "I meant what I said and I said what I meant. . . I don't think I need to apologize for being pro-American." It sounds like the guy best known for playing Money Mike in the Friday movie series has patriotism confused with hating Americans. Almost all of them.

Granted, comedians live by slightly different rules than us regular joes. They can get away with saying things that the average American can't, by claiming it was "comedy." But as a video of the curse-laden Phoenix show proves (seriously curse-laden . . . kick the kids out of the room or skip the video and read the excerpt below), Williams wasn't kidding. He was ranting:

In case you didn't want to watch, here's the big part:

Do you remember when white people used to say 'Go back to Africa,' and we'd have to tell them we don't want to? So if you love Mexico, [expletive], get the [expletive] over there...We were slaves [expletive.] You just work like that as landscapers.

None of that sounded exactly pro-American to me. Sure, he got the crowd to chant USA a bunch of times, and I could almost see a Tea Party rally breaking out on the spot (Glenn Beck, did you hear his call?). But most of us who find "go back to Africa" abhorrent know that the bulk of Americans have ancestors who came into this country as immigrants. You might as well tell me to go back to Germany, Scotland, and France if you want to play that game.

If Williams wants to be a patriot, he needs to embrace the melting pot culture and remember we all started somewhere. Even Mexican-Americans. So how about sticking to the apology that he claims was issued by someone else (how exactly does that happen?) and write this debacle off as bad improv?

Did you accept his initial apology? Do you think Williams is a good American?
