1997 - George Carlin's brain droppings

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 16:34:03 +0000

Comedian George Carlin is funny and serious as he talks about white privilege, things he could do without, and why he dislikes the label Native American. "They're not natives, they emigrated here. They came from Asia. And putting the word American on them is the supreme insult. After you steal their cultures, put them on the worst land possible, give them blankets with smallpox then turn around and give your name. It's repulsive." Carlin was interviewed by KUOW's Steve Scher on the occasion of publishing his book "Brain Droppings."

President Trump: If Robert E. Lee statues come down, what about statues of the slave holder George Washington?

And on a lighter note, a creamier note, two giants of Seattle ice cream will tell you ice cream stories and take your flavor suggestions.
