Our favorite racist has just sent out a tweet linking to this article entitled Big Brother's Chima Simone Addresses Eviction and Racism. She apologizes for calling Russell a terrorist and my only thought is, "What took you so long?" Now I want my apology for you calling us all bitches and inferior. How long do I have to wait for that one Chima?
The article is posted on hollyscoop.com and here's what Chima had to say:
"Upon recently leaving the Big Brother show this season I have been privy to many judgments and criticisms made of every aspect of my being ranging from things as trivial as my appearance to more egregious comments referring to me as a racist.
As a woman of color, I have experienced racism first hand. I know what it is to be discriminated against so I would never want to inflict that pain onto someone else. I will, however, always stand up for myself. Many of you perceive my resolute candor objectionable, but I have always been outspoken and will remain so. I will never apologize for my looks, personality, or straightforwardness.
Nonetheless, I am particularly sorry that my words disparaged the regard and respect that should be shown to all cultures, especially the Middle Eastern community in this time of great turmoil within our nations. In describing Russell’s abusive, bullying, and threatening actions towards me and other houseguests, I referred to him as a terrorist. I used a phrase that was insensitive given his Middle Eastern descent and I apologize to all who are justifiably offended with my use of that racially charged term.
My sentiments concerning his behavior, however, remain intact. I do not agree with his antagonistic rampages throughout the house. Russell constantly demoralized many of us on a consistent basis and his conduct was alarming, daunting, and terrifying.
Fortunately, for me, I do not have to be subjected to those tirades anymore. I am going on with my life in the real world. I wish the remaining BB housemates the best of luck!
Chima Simone "
So that's it. What do you guys think? Do you think she's genuine? I don't. I think she's trying desperately to save face in the middle of a shit storm she singlehandedly created. I think her apology is a nonapology at best. I'll bet her grandmother yelled at her and forced her to apologize. I'm only hoping she spanked her as well.
