Amy Robach Drops ‘Colored People’ on Live TV (VIDEO)

Amy Robach is a breast cancer survivor. Her only carte blanche limit is politically incorrect nomenclature missteps. The Good Morning America anchor was discussing with a guest how the role of Mary Jane in the next Spider Man is being cast with black pop singer and former TV kid actor Zendaya Coleman when she blurted out the term “colored people”:

We know Hollywood has received recent and quite a bit of criticism for casting white actors in what one might assume should be a role reserved for colored people. Is this potentially the industry trying to right itself doing something right?”

If you really mean this nonsense, use the active tense and avoid impersonal pronouns. Do you even read the copy before you speak it next to a mildly bemused Clinton campaigner waiting for this shit to be over? The “colored people” comment indicates probably not. Save that shit for private giggles at De Blasio fundraising events. 

Zendaya is half black and grew up in private theater groups in a wealthy suburb of the Bay Area. She dons fake dreads and takes offense on behalf of black people in order to get gigs from people like yourself who equate reverse discrimination with equity. Good for her for gaming a fucked up system. Stan Lee won’t give a shit until his cameo roles are deemed reserved for colored people and he’s axed.

Robach immediately apologized in something that was essentially word for word the Ellen apology from last week about her Usain Bolt Photoshop joke. Of course it’s funnier when people who twist themselves into knots being seen as progressive get caught up in their own web of tortured semantics. Dial up Sharpton and ask for the ABC News discount. For a hundred grand this become an honest mistake not warranting further action.
