The Terribly Stupid Claim That RuPaul Is a Racist for Choosing 2 Black Winners

Because RuPaul selected two black winners on the first two seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race, some toolbags are accusing him of racism? And if he selected two white winners in a row, that would’ve been, what, normal? Please.

Say what you will about Bebe Zahara Benet and Tyra Sanchez — namely, that one is leaps and bounds classier than the other — but if you’re going to raise the issue of racism, go suck a dick. An argument as ill-founded as “RuPaul is a racist” requires as cheap a rebuttal as that. These queens were fantastic, and they won on their own merits (and ability to make good television).
