One-time TV game show host Chuck Woolery stepped into controversy this week with a tweet insisting that “racism has nothing to do with race.”
On Monday morning, Woolery jumped to Twitter to explain what he felt racism was all about in today’s context.
“RACISM HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RACE,” the original Wheel of Fortune host wrote. “Racism is the Progressive Left crying out for attention. If you disagree with the Progressive Left. They consider you a Racist. They are desperate to hold on to the Black Vote.”

Almost immediately, Woolery was lambasted by the left for his attempt to divorce race from racism.
One Twitter user snidely asked Woolery to “explain Jim Crow.” The conservative talk show host replied “Democrats.”
But other leftists jumped with both feet on Woolery’s claims.
Racism has nothing to do with race? Really? Come on man, that's just stupid. Racism is all about race. That's why it's call "race"-ism. #DontBeStupid

Racism is you saying exactly what you just did. Racism is not the progressive left crying out for attention. Why don’t you ask the people who are the victims of racism what racism is? Because you certainly have no clue.

Still, Woolery had his supporters, too:
LOL! Bunch-o-whiny leftist must not of liked something you said, Chuck. Your replies have been invested with “what about yada yada’s” and “no, you’re a racist”… I’m sure it’s very upsetting. (Lol)
Here’s how to handle them. 😉 pic.twitter.com/AdPumjbgGm
