The PC Police have claimed a new victim. Ellen DeGeneres is under fire from liberals who are claiming she is racist. The reason is really ridiculous. After Usain Bolt blew away the competition in Rio to retain his title of World’s Fastest Man, Ellen tweeted something funny and innocent.

As you can imagine the outrage brigade hit her hard for pretending to ride on the back of a black man. For people who don’t want to define others by the color of their skin, they really define others by the color of their skin.
The tweet below is a good example of the backlash Ellen received. Apparently, all humor has to be sanitized and approved by those who are sensitive to EVERYTHING.
@TheEllenShow You thought it'd be funny to post a pic of yourself riding on the back of a Black man? Nope. Delete this racist garbage.

Ellen was even accused of acting like a slave owner. But, the outrage was lost on Usain Bolt who actually retweeted it.
As you can see in the video below, Ellen wasn’t about to sit back and let herself be labeled as a racist. She said, “I am highly aware of the racism that exists in our country. It is the furthest thing from who I am.”
How absurd! We are accused of racism for seemingly everything. And that has diminished the harshness of true racism. Because when everything is racist, true racism is ignored. They are crying wolf.
Please share this if you thought Ellen’s tweet was funny.
