Calling somebody a racist usually tends to leave plenty of people offended and quick to point out you’re wrong. But what about when you call everybody a racist, including yourself? That’s what Danny DeVito did in an interview at the Sundance Film Festival while discussing the Oscars diversity controversy.
Instead of hitting on just the Oscars, or “the symptom” as Don Cheadle would put it later in the clip, DeVito hits on the country and society as a whole:
“It’s unfortunate that the entire country is a racist country…
“Even though some people have given really great performances in movies, they weren’t even thought about. We’re living in a country that discriminates, and has certain racist tendencies.”
