6840: Dead Men Walking.
Sorry statements in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• GOP activist Rusty DePass has made his own life a living hell, as he’ll likely face a storm of criticism for his racist remark involving First Lady Michelle Obama. The moron commented on a Facebook report about the escaped gorilla at a South Carolina zoo by writing, “I’m sure it’s just one of Michelle’s ancestors—probably harmless.” DePass apologized, of course, and even compounded the problems by insisting he was referring to a statement made by the First Lady. “The comment was hers, not mine,” explained Depass, saying Obama recently remarked that humans descended from apes. Not sure what DePass descended from.
• Activists are organizing to protest the sexual harassment women routinely face while riding public transportation in Chicago. Riders have been surveyed, indicating incidents of harassment are frequent. “A lot of people don’t realize that when they’re getting catcalled or someone touches them in the wrong way, that’s harassment,” said one activist. “They think that’s just part of their day.” However, no one thinks Rusty DePass is cool.
• Captain America is not dead after all. After getting killed two years ago, the iconic comic book hero is being resurrected in a series titled, “Captain America Reborn.” His first mission will involve kicking the ass of Rusty DePass.
