Boykin, Solmonese All Up On Paula Zahn
Apparently Paula Zahn‘s news show wasn’t doing so well, because CNN’s now made her their resident discrimination expert. Each night, Zahn and her guests take a look at hate crimes, prejudice and other ugly bits that haunt America’s collective consciousness. Of course, just because she’s not reporting the news, doesn’t mean she’s not exploring the news, including the whole Isaiah Washington scandal.

This here’s the video from Monday’s episode on which Keith Boykin and Human Rights President Joe Solmonese appeared to discuss the use of the word “faggot” in America. We’ll let you guys do the commenting, because, really, there’s so much here.

We will say, however, that CNN made the right choice in giving Zahn this role: ain’t nobody in America who knows about discrimination more than a pretty white lady. Also, she’s apparently classier than Glenn Beck (or, rather, listens more closely to producers), because she won’t say “faggot” on the air. She prefers “six letter derogatory term for homosexual”. A bit lengthy, but it’s the thought that counts.
