Judge apologizes for ’regular white man’ comment

A Tennessee judge has apologized after saying in open court that he was ’going to work like a regular white man’. Judge Haywood Barry made the comment while scheduling a hearing for a black defendant. ’I’m not working second shift. I’m going to work like a regular white man, as they used to say...I’m not going to be a slave’, Barry was heard telling an attorney in an audio recording.

What's wrong with being a regular white man? Racists.

It reads to me like he was clumsily trying to self-denigrate. But that didn't stop the feelings from getting hurt. When "Keeping It Woke" goes wrong...

N the sad part no clue that what he said was out of the norm... Not because he a racist in his mind nor on purpose but because of long engrained history of being desensitized n thus it becomes a nonchalant norm... Least he had the decency to apologize even if called out on it... Now has no excuse of being woefully ignorant

Oops! There goes a Freudian slip! I'm so shocked a racist white man in Tennessee! But I'm sure to prove he's not a racist he'll recuse himself in future from passing judgment on any non-white person? I wonder if he's a Republican or a trump supporter?
