Chuck Woolery’s claim that “RACISM HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RACE” was met with widespread disbelief and anger this week.
“Racism is the Progressive Left crying out for attention,” the former game show host of “Wheel of Fortune” and “Love Connection” tweeted Monday.
RACISM HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RACE. Racism is the Progressive Left crying out for attention. If you disagree with the ProgressiveLeft. They consider you a Racist. They are desperate to hold on to the Black Vote.

“If you disagree with the ProgressiveLeft. They consider you a Racist. They are desperate to hold on to the Black Vote,” added the self-styled “Hollywood Conservative,” now a co-host of the political “Blunt Force Truth” podcast.
Twitter users were keen to point out the origins of the word “racism” to Woolery, who sparked similar ire in 2017 when he claimed the GOP had never done anything “nasty” to Black people.
“Race-ism. Raaaaaace. Racism. Chuck do you know what etymology means?” one person replied to Woolery’s latest sweeping statement.
“What the Chuck?” added another.
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.

Ummm Chuck? Race is the root word of racism?

Looks like he took a page out of Trump’s Twitter handbook. Why is proper punctuation, capitalization and sentence structure so difficult for some? Go sit down, Chuck. https://t.co/FLlLI8eqgf

Racism: prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior. Yet this has nothing to do with race.
See how stupid that sounds? Actually, you probably don’t… pic.twitter.com/3NubbAc5mk

“Racism has nothing to do with race.”
I would try to figure out how that makes any sense whatsoever, but I think it would be a total waste of time.
