James Earl Jones, the voice behind Darth Vader in Star Wars and Mufasa from the Lion King:
“I think I have figured out the tea party. I think I do understand racism because I was taught to be one by my grandmother.” Jones describes his grandmother as part “Indian, part black” and she “hated everybody.” “And she taught all of her children and grandchildren to be racist, to hate white people and to distrust black people.”
So how does his upbringing by a racist relate to the Tea Party?
Jones went on to say, that his racist upbringing “allowed me to figure it out for myself. And I think I know what racism is better than anybody who has ever been a racist.”
The reasoning goes like this: Mama was a racist therefore I know racism. What I don’t know is how to reason or give examples.
