Isaiah Washington is calling Shonda Rhimes (of all people) on the race card.
Keep digging that hole, man. I admit to having liked Burke, before the storyline with Yang played out to exhaustion, but at this point, I’d be pleased as punch to see you never work again.
My mistake was thinking black people get second chances. I was wrong on all fronts,” he said.
His unwillingness to act like a submissive black at work was part of the problem, Washington said.
“Well, it didn’t help me on the set that I was a black man who wasn’t a mush-mouth Negro walking around with his head in his hands all the time. I didn’t speak like I’d just left the plantation and… go around saying `Yessah, massa sir’ and `No sir, massa’ to everyone.”
Oy. Apart from what he’s saying about Rhimes here, which is absurd to the point of obscenity — that says a whole lot for (the insanely incredible) Chandra Wilson, too, right? Anyone else imagining Dr Bailey beating the holy living hell out of him right now?
