This thread makes me think of a nonexistent PSA that begins, "I'm not a racist, but I played one on TV."  Perhaps starring Carroll O'Connor.

Sarah Silverman.  Or is she?

or the guy that played Schillenger on OZ

can't help but think of him as a NeoNazi. Which was about the most interesting thing about Spiderman for me (he played JJJ).

And he's even still alive, which might be helpful.

Another phrase that often latches on to stupidity is "I'm just saying."  Those might be the three emptiest words in the English language.

The phrase "I'm not saying...I'm just saying" annoys me to no end.
Nobody ever lends money to a man with a sense of humor.

Also, in perusing that page, I noticed that an overwhelming amount of those comments came from what appeared to be young people.

If this is really the future of America, then maybe it's time for me to move to Canada.

I don't think it ever came up during any actual Leave It To Beaver episodes, but I always assumed the character of Fred Rutherford was probably a huge racist.
This may be the year I will disappear.

He wasn't saying anyhing offensive but I was talking to a blind friend of mine and he was telling me about an incedent he had with someone who was also at the event. And he motioned like he was looking to his left and right to see if she was around before he leaned in and whispered something to me. I thought it was hilarious. He did it as sort of a joke but I was so curious how he knew about that motion.

@Sarah: You are right about the awkward and clumsy part, and I'd never give the caller a hard time about it, I'm very forgiving.
