Apparently Tim Allen is trending on twitter for saying something "racist" although I cant find what he actually said only fake outrage reactions.

It doesn't really matter thought because he's a white trump supporter so he's automatically raciss.

Apparently is has something to do with not knowing how to play spades

When everyone is a racist, no one is a racist.


It's completely lost it's meaning.

Cut to half an hour later and he isn't trending at all in the top 20.

So I guess it wasn't much -- especially if you can't find it.

It's rare to have a twitter topic in the top 10 that you can't find the story on.

Must be some random troll who started something.

Seems like this would be an important point to include in a thread about it. Without the context of what he actually said this thread amounts to nothing more than mental masturbation.

A bunch of false race card players creating drama where none exits. Tim Allen pointing out the obvious racism of the detractors.

I don't know about racist but he sure seems sexist.

I *think* this is the tweet.

For context, the interviewer is black and asked them a question about strategy in the game of Spades to test if they have a "black card" (meaning if they're culturally in-tuned with the black community).

Tim Allen didn't specifically say anything that was racist, but he did look *VERY* uncomfortable and frustrated about the discussion (supposedly he doesn't play Spades). He also kept making a bunch of sarcastic remarks in an attempt to dismiss the interviewer's question and change the subject. This is compared to Tom Hanks who was actively engaging in the interviewer's question and seemed to enjoy it for the light-hearted fun it was intended to be.

For further context, Spades is a card game that's known to be most popular amongst black people.

Racism like other labels is a matter of degree. NO adult is without some prejudice or racism.
