ABC has canceled “Roseanne” because of racist statements by Barr about President Obama’s former press secretary Valerie Jarrett. ” muslim brotherhood& Planet of the apes had a baby=vj.” Once again racist attitudes are exposed to the world through Twitter. This sad situation where someone who is paid by the network to make people laugh and make them a lot of money. She like most people who cannot let their smartphone get out of arms reach and who love social media to send out how they really feel with sometimes devastating results such as this situation for Barr. Once you hit the send button it’s too late to take it back.

Those who never have to experience racism in their lives cannot understand the effect it as on another person. Then again they have to know how it looks on the outside. But it is the inner hurt that cannot be seen. Words have power, that is something we all forget at times to our detriment. There was a saying in WWII. “Loose lips sink ships” this story is a good example of what that saying meant. The economic damage that her co-workers will feel because as of today they are out of work. Roseanne will never work in Hollywood again. All because of a Tweet.
