Yesterday, Bill Clinton declared to the world "I am not a racist."

Sound familiar? Perhaps a bit reminiscent of Jay Smooth's video on why it's important to talk to people about why the things they say/do are racist.

A few months back, Clinton made statements comparing Obama to Jesse Jackson which many considered racist. It seems that after not saying much on the issue, Clinton might be suffering from a guilty conscience.

But, again, should people have called/be calling Clinton racist? I don't think so. Has he said or done some racist things? I think so. Somebody should probably sit down and explain to him why saying those things might be racist. Then he can stop going on about how he isn't a racist and focus on actually changing what he says and does.

What's your take on this?

What I thought was quite interesting about the interview he gave was that he came out with "I am not racist" out of no where. The interviewer had just asked him about his regrets, but never specifically mentioned anything. it was just...weird. I think he may be losing his mind a little.

Check out this video-- it's about telling people they sound racist vs. they are racists. I think it's pretty cool. I think someone should watch it and then maybe go talk to him.
