He called the looters, who were black, animals. At the very least he is ignorant about the history of black people being called nothing but animals. Yet how can you be ignorant about that? (If you know any history) That tells me he probably has very few black friends and have no real relationship with them.

What truly revealed his racist attitude, whether or not he thinks he's racist, is his comments concerning black people voting Obama into office. Pretty much jeering when saying Obama has done nothing for the black community. This is a lumping in statement. Calling all black people out for something. Only someone who has racist views would say stuff like that.

Sorbo is honest. It takes real cajones to be honest in his business.

What business would that be? It certainly isn't show business anymore.

The photo was taken in Thailand according to the article. No mention of what type of office it is. Not really sure where all of this is going.

I'll respect that it's his honest opinion. Whether anything he says is "truth" is entirely subjective. Off the top of my head he, and many conservatives, ignore the fact that over 70% of Asians and Latinos (they especially ignore the Asians) voted for Obama as well...

I preferred Xena anyway. But this does make the fifth season of The Guild awkward to watch.

Looters are regularly referred to as animals, regardless of the color of their skin. He didn't say anything negative towards those protesting peacefully, only those looting.
