Now It sounds like to me the person that called in and was displeased about “The Young and the Restless” comment is the one that’s racist. That call-in was not meant to be racist. It just means that I would rather see “The Young and the Restless” than to see any president or any politician come on while that’s on. So there’s no racist intent on that call-in. I still say they could move the president to another time.

Racism? Get a life. “The Young and the Restless” comment was not about racism. Watch the program. It’s at least 50 percent African-American. My goodness, lighten up.
