[Op-Ed] PEREZ HILTON: “Faggot” Only for the Black Folk

via Transracial

Picture 7

Two and one-half years ago we watched as blogger Perez Hilton almost single-handidly destroyed the career of Grey’s Anatomy Star Isaiah Washington after the actor called cast-member T.R. Knight a “faggott”. Cloaked behind a banner of political correctness, Hilton led the choir in demanding the near media-execution that resulted in Washington — a rare Black male face on primetime TV — losing his job, being publically chastized and attending “sensitivity” training. So be it.

Washington’s behavior was certainly uncool — and it’s likely his long-time bad-itude on set was one reason the Grey’s cast was so quick to see him go. Flash forward to this week and Perez is now the one calling folks “faggot” — and it’s resulted in a bitch-slap! Obviously, Perez’s beat-up was way out of line — but equally out of line is his insistence that his use of derogatory and anti-Gay language is no big deal. Well, according to GLBT rights group GLAAD — it is a big deal and Perez needs to account for it. They’ve asked the blogger to apologize for his bad behavior — which they say “feeds a climate of hatred and intolerance toward our community.” And how.

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is speaking out after Perez Hilton admittedly used an anti-gay slur in a confrontation with will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas.

Perez, who is openly gay, admitted in a video blog that he used an anti-gay slur against will.i.am during a confrontation in Toronto on Sunday night, which was corroborated by will.i.am in his own video blog. Perez said in his blog that during his conversation with will.i.am: “I made the split-second decision — that I was gonna say what I thought was the worst possible thing that thug [will.i.am] would ever want to hear,” and then called the Black Eyed Peas singer the anti-gay slur.

“These are vulgar anti-gay slurs that feed a climate of hatred and intolerance toward our community,” Rashad Robinson, Senior Director of Media Programs at GLAAD, tells ET. “For someone in our own community to use it to attack another person by saying that it is, quote, ‘The worst possible thing that thug would ever want to hear,’ is incredibly dangerous. It legitimizes use of a slur that is often linked to violence against our community. And it sends a message that it is OK to attempt to dehumanize people by exploiting anti-gay attitudes.”

“We have reached out to Hilton and asked him to apologize for promoting this anti-gay slur and we would ask media outlets to avoid repetition of the slur in their coverage of this story.”

Oprah gives $365,000 to ‘Vote However You Like’ Students

Is Oprah the only one who puts her money where her mouth is?

What a happy holiday for some Atlanta-area students!

The Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta got the attention of the nation when the video above of its students performing a election rap they wrote appeared on YouTube.

Teachers at the school are known to use rapping, dancing and drumming to help students learn.

Headmaster Clark, who taught in one of New York City’s toughest schools and wrote the best-selling teaching book The Essential 55, opened the ATL school last year with proceeds from his book and private donations.

Nearly all of its 80 students are from middle- and low-income households.

Parents pay a small part of the tuition and the rest is paid by donors. It costs approximately $14,000 to educate each student.

Well, the generous Oprah Winfrey can be listed as one of the school’s benefactors.

On Wednesday, Clark revealed to his students that Super O gifted the school $365,000!!

“We teach school all day and fundraise at night,” said Clark. “To have an unsolicited gift come like that is incredible.”

When Clark shared the news with the school community, the children, parents and teachers reportedly erupted in deafening cheers!

The donation will likely go to scholarships for students.

It’s enough to pay for roughly 26 children to attend the school for one year!

In a letter that accompanied the check, Winfrey calls Clark a role model and applauds the “profound difference you’re making with your passion for teaching.”

The check was issued by the Oprah Winfrey Foundation, which gave $4 million to educational programs in 2008.

Oprah rules!

Michael Jackson not dying, working on a new album

This was fishy from the start because too many high level artists from Will.I.Am to Akon spoke highly of MJ‘s new project and nothing about his detoriating health. Could these guys really keep a dying Michael Jackson under wraps? Then these reports surface out of the blue that he is dying a slow death and needs a lung transplant. The Zorro pictures really did not look like someone taking their last breath and that is saying a lot for Michael Jackson. Anyway a statement from his reps are debunking the recent rumors saying Michael is about do his last moonwalk.

Despite reports from the U.K. to the contrary, Wacko is in good health, his publicist reveals exclusively to PerezHilton.com.

M.J. was said to be battling A1AD — alpha-1 anti-trypsin deficiency, a rare disease which has left him half blind and needing a lung transplant.

But, not so, his publicist tells us!

Dr. Tohme, Jackson’s rep, says, “Concerning this author’s allegations, we would hope in the future that legitimate media will not continue to be exploited by such an obvious attempt to promote this unauthorized ‘biography.’ The writer’s wild allegations concerning Mr. Jackson’s health are a total fabrication. Mr. Jackson is in fine health, and finalizing negotiations with a major entertainment company & television network for both a world tour and a series of specials and appearances.

Nice to know Wacko’s not sicko!

As for the world tour, though, yeah right! The likeliness of that happening is slimmer then the days Janet used to be skinny!
