Should apology to accept that.
-- big apology should be accepted she's been on the network for over a decade.
She is a legion of fans she appeared on the network or to public personality was a pleasing popular one so as a Christian and as -- I would accept her apology.
But apologies also go with.
Some can't -- repentance.
Is an act you know something they do what to do to make that -- Latin for repentance is to change your heart.
Best that you think she was sincere.
It'd be -- woman in one of -- -- video she had several apologies in one of them she appeared sincere.
My bigger concern is this this these allegation grew out of a lawsuit.
Which includes alleged harassment in the workplace and and it's now been amplify about the workers are coming forward and that seems to be prompt and she -- settled without a court.
But really this lawsuit -- to play out in quarry here we have a celebrity shaft.
Chef who is more responsible for her actions.
Then our chief law enforcement officer of the country Eric Holder -- she -- -- too would she was honest about it she apologize I think the network.
They really shot up from the -- really quick and they just overreacted with the whole thing not as a ripple of the words repugnant.
It's it's just totally unacceptable for anybody to say.
Let me ask you this I have a tape of Reverend Al Sharpton I could play but I'm not going to play it.
Of him use in the N word talking about David Dinkins and should the same standard apply to him.
That's a long time ago he said it saw on tape in his case yeah.
Why is that not right exactly yeah there's an upset and he's moved dom.
But that's the thing as a double standards on here have -- we have the pitchforks and torches after this woman.
And then we have Al Sharpton who says things -- a daily basis on television.
Race -- politics that he's not held accountable he has his own television program what's wrong with that.
They're double standard there month -- job solved in the saga that I believe that's a distraction.
There isn't there isn't the greatest pure politics it's -- that's not to subject the subject is the DN word and its use and we're gonna be honest I think that we would say it is a debate.
In black community about the use of the word some of its into generational some of its lifestyle a cultural I think it's wrong.
By anybody to use -- I -- pit -- so but but so so I can understand -- who would say.
If it's wrong for.
-- wrong foot didn't Paula -- then it's wrong and and strong for.
Don Imus to use.
To sort always may have been in Kabul stand there and now thought they had a greatest and our contract that would end its digital tools who -- MSNBC apologize.
Al Sharpton has an apology -- hear it because it's.
A lot of Brawley to race car that's not the -- of this -- shot that you brought it up -- I didn't bring about something you'd about what I'm saying she's shown that.
I'm what I'm simply saying is.
That when it comes to this discussion on this where there's a cultural divide.
And I believe that with the U considered politically correct so I'm -- -- right thing -- the words and.
Efforts are taking words and actions here we had Robert Byrd OK he was a Klansman grand Klebold cyclops whatever his title was.
He was -- -- races and he was ahead of the senate majority leadership for the Democrats.
What's wrong with that picture as well how is it that he was able to stay in all because.
People who they just thought well that he would change his past and look what would happen is this not a referendum -- -- -- department.
You do this is not a -- I didn't have an opportunity to bowl from -- I don't think that in this day you disagree with the fact he was able to have such a position he was a former Klansman former brand -- I accept the fact that he changed his heart and voters -- you know you are supported his leadership.
Think that a little bit put it into -- -- what the issue is -- what was he like it's -- that's probably stand there like of the -- ever -- you make an excuse us for Al excuses for remembering -- -- -- I'm saying -- I'm saying -- MSNBC want to find -- -- tomorrow that's a business you know what what about Bill Clinton just a few years ago he says what about president.
Former -- -- -- cut Obama a few years ago this guy would have been getting us coffee.
Did you hear about that commented yes of course -- integrating did you did you I -- status as a racial comments -- -- -- not right there because I sort of more hasn't.
This is a junior guy who's getting -- yes they -- -- getting better racist comment I didn't I didn't have a double standard telling I don't know when I do not have a double standard.
