Poetic Perspective: Rosanne Barr … A Racist Star

ROSEANNE - ABC's "Roseanne" stars Roseanne Barr as Roseanne Conner. (ABC/Robert Trachtenberg)


To ban Rosanne was ABC ..
We view same with no glee
Even as racism does appall …
And racists must fall …

Ask Hitler the king of them all
In his bunker he got his call
To commit suicide …
Did he use cyanide …?

Racism is an affront to decency
We do not court such atrocity
Barr’s Obama Aide “ape” tweet …
Was repugnant, most indiscreet

The ABC network had no choice
But to silence her sitcom voice
She does not need such platform
To endorse racism will not adorn

Rosanne’s racist tweet …
Was an indecency feat …
Such conduct was … suspected
She performed as expected …

He utterance shows her disgust
As her racist ideas are robust
A view described as “Abhorrent”.
Is Rosanne so racially ignorant?

Is this systemic racism?
Embedded in her system …
If you see black people as low?
Your utterances will hit below …

Rosanne has since apologized
Was she so advised ….?
Accused ABC of pandering ….
By bowing to liberal thinking …?

ABC found itself in a moral plight
It had to respond right …
Commendable is their decision
They had no other option …

Morality is akin to dignity …
As honesty is to integrity ….
Rosanne had to be set free
We do not gloat with glee

Iger and Dugey do agree …
Rosanne should be set free …
Her view, not up to “our values”
“Repugnant, abhorrent” devalues

At Rosanne’s firing we agree …
We do not do so with glee …
It is racism we abhor …
Yes, she should see the exit door

Iger & Dugey are ABC leaders …
They must dismiss deceivers …
Racism is an affront to decency
They must act with integrity

Ah, ah, ah ….

Commentary

We condemn racism and are not impressed with racists.  As stated above we do not gloat with glee, at Rosanne’s downfall. She needs to change her view as black people are not like an “ape”. Valerie Jarrett is a decent, intelligent being who has been created in God’s image and likeness. Rosanne is wrong to so denigrate her. She was an invaluable aide of President Obama. She contributed positively to US national growth & development.
