Rock 'n' Roil: Debates on Who's No. 1, Racism, Sexism and Criticism

It is apparent that the real "ignorant racist" is Arsenio Hall as he tries to implicate Axl Rose of Guns N' Roses ("Behind the Guns N' Roses Racism Furor," by Patrick Goldstein).

Not only does Arsenio slander a man as a racist on national television but he advocates violence as the solution: "I hope someone whips his (rear end)."

Why does he not equally advocate a beating for the black spokesman for the group Public Enemy, Professor Griff, who made anti-Semitic remarks? Why the double standard, Arsenio?
