Racism has long been a serious issue in the United States. Even though the Civil Rights era was decades ago, we are still dealing with very real forms of discrimination in this country. From shocking comments made in the media to instances of police brutality, it’s clear to see that there is still a lot of work to be done.
It’s also not a huge surprise that racism has been pretty prevalent in Hollywood. Actors and actresses have talked about the lack of roles for people of color for years now. Models have even complained that makeup artists and hairstylists are not trained to apply cosmetics or style hair for people of color.
Unfortunately, there are some celebrities who are racist, but they just don’t want you to know it. Sure, some of these famous people have said things that can clearly be interpreted as racist, but they don’t want this negative label associated with their names. That doesn’t mean that they necessarily want to adopt a new world view, though. Fortunately, some of these celebrities have seen the error of their ways, and will hopefully learn to speak carefully in the future. Here are 12 celebrities who don’t want you to know they’re racist.
12 Kelly Osbourne
10 Asher Roth
9 Guiliana Rancic
8 Hulk Hogan
7 Jesse James
6 Miley Cyrus
5 Paris Hilton
4 John Mayer
3 Mel Gibson
2 Donald Sterling
1 Paula Deen
Paula Deen was loved by many, and known as the queen of Southern cuisine. That is, until she was caught in a racial controversy in 2013. The chef and television personality admitted that she’d used the “n” word, and a former employee of Deen’s accused her of racial harassment. The Food Network decided to let Deen go, and she’s been working hard to re-vamp her career since then. Some wonder whether Paula Deen has learned her lesson, since she and her son Bobby, were photographed dressed as Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, and Bobby’s face was painted brown. Deen is set to appear on Dancing With The Stars soon, so we’re hoping she can just stick to moving her feet instead of her mouth.
