  • Is anyone surprised that racism knows no color? Racist is racist, stupid is stupid!

    And the beer comment? Well, Obama had nothing to do with that either until he tried to "fix it" you can love or hate Obama and still see the humor in that remark.

  • He should have made the ruling ON FACTS and NOT accepted the plea agreement (if that is what he felt was acceptable) without the biased commentary.... What an ass.

  • "Now that the court has essentially called me a racist, I think that's unfair. I don't make offers based on race. I make offers based on facts," Catanzarite said, according to the Tribune-Review.

    Williams later recused himself from the case, and a white judge accepted the plea agreement for 24-year-old Jeffery McGowan.

    This is disgusting.

  • Cripes, it would have been worth it to 'me' to stand up and say 'Your Bigoted Honor' and deal with the contempt charges.

  • His race should never have come up in a court of law. That's ridiculous. Reject or accept the plea, but racist comments from a judge are stupid.

  • flew so high the wind didn't even blow her hair!!

    I think the judge should hand in his resignation. I wouldn't be surprised if this case is appealed and his past cases reviewed for racism.
