Hulk Hogan Sorry for Using ‘N’ Word and Oh, ‘I’m Not a Racist’

“I am NOT a crook!” Famous words uttered by Richard Nixon. Later on, he turned out to be, well, less than savory and yes, a bit of a crook. Now, Hulk Hogan makes the press rounds to apologize for uttering the ‘N’ word in a privately filmed sex session. Hogan interviewed with Good Morning America where he declares, “I’m not a racist.” Missing are the shaking jowls and pounding on the podium for emphasis. In response to the question, “Are you a racist?”, Hogan replies:

“I’m not a racist. I never should have said what I said. It was wrong, I’m embarassed by it. But a lot of people need to realize that you inherit things from your environment.

And where I grew up, it was South Tampa, it was a really rough neighborhood, very low income, and all my friends greeted each other saying that word.

The word was just thrown around like it was nothing.”

Throw it up for South Tampa. That place is rough from what I’ve heard and seen. Or…is it? People from Hogan’s neighborhood defended their area and said it isn’t anything like Hogan portrayed.

“That was not the culture when Terry grew up here…

“There was a time this area was poor but we didn’t say that word…

“My daughters not like that. My sons not like that.”

So, more lies by Hogan. Back to the GMA interview. When the interviewer tosses him a softball and asks if he inherited a racial bias, Hogan answers, well, of course.

“I would say that is very fair. The environment I grew up in, all my white friends, all my black friends, you hear the word on a daily basis. When they’d greet me in the morning, that’s what they’d say to me – ‘Good morning, so-and-so.’ I think that was part of the culture and environment I grew up in.”

Hmm… Is Hogan a racist? I don’t know if I believe that 100%. There are Asians, Latinos, all colors of people using the word. Does that make them all racists? No. Maybe ignorant, but a racist? That’s a stretch.

Seriously, raise your hand if you’ve ever ever said the ‘N’ word in private, or used any other racial epithet, making jokes with friends. HA! Trick question, motherfucker. You a racist! Disgusting.
