Isaiah Washington is Still Pissed

Isaiah Washington isn’t exactly taking his firing from Grey’s Anatomy and the potential implosion of his career well. The unemployed and yet still talking actor has whipped out his deck of how to shift responsibility cards and has decided to plat the race card.

From TMZ (have I mentioned lately that I love TMZ?):

Former “Grey’s Anatomy” star Isaiah Washington talked to Newsweek recently, and he rips the show for firing him because, in part, he’s a black man “with a booming voice.” Actually, let’s let him explain: “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.”

Oh, and it doesn’t stop there. Isaiah says an HR person told him that “some people” were “afraid” of him around the studio, to which he replied, “Why, because I’m a 6-foot-1 black man with dark skin and who doesn’t go around saying ‘Yessah, massa’ and ‘No sir, massa’ to everyone?”

Holy Kunte Kinte, Batman! Dude, maybe people were afraid of you because you were throwing down with Patrick Dempsey and calling the gay guy a nasty name. Race has nothing to do with it…a bad temper and the inherent inability to keep your mouth shut does.

But just our curiosity, in a showdown between racism and homophpbia, which oppressed minority wins? Gee, let me check the cast list for Grey’s this fall.
