CNN's Piers: Phil Robertson a 'Racist'

"He's a victim of his own racist, homophobic bigotry."

On Thursday, CNN’s Piers Morgan suggested on Twitter that A&E’s suspension of Phil Robertson was fully justified – because Robertson is “racist”:

As proof, Morgan linked to a piece in which Robertson talked about his childhood growing up alongside black people:

I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field … They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!… Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.
