Roseanne Didn’t Even Know Jarrett Was African-American


All this garbage about Roseanne and how terrible all whites are is based on nothing. Roseanne never knew Valerie Jarrett was white. I believe her. Jarrett was born in Iran and doesn’t look particularly black. If someone told me she was Iranian, I would believe it. Would you?

The actress blamed tweeting in the wee hours of the morning after taking Ambien for insomnia, and she took responsibility for the bad joke.

“I’m not a racist, just an idiot who made a bad joke,” she tweeted.

She said she didn’t know Jarrett [a Marxist] was African American.

“I honestly thought she was Jewish and Persian — ignorant of me for sure, but…i did,” she told a social media user.

To another user, Barr said that she “mistakenly thought [Jarrett] was white.”

While you’re at it, please follow her on Twitter. She made a mistake, that’s all.


Talk radio host Larry Elder, who is black, responded to the Roseanne Barr controversy with very interesting tweets from Bill Maher and others who still have their shows.

Elder highlighted a tweet from vile comedian Bill Maher. In said tweet, Maher said Trump was “the spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.” Barr had made the “same joke”, Elder said. He included a photo of Jarrett juxtaposed with a character from the Planet of the Apes film.


  1. The same people who monitor Pres. Trump’s twitter must also monitor Roseann– 24 hrs. day. Who would have even thought vj was Valerie Jarrett? She has been mostly out of the news for over a year.

  2. This site: says Jarrett is this: Ethnicity: African-American, smaller amounts of Creole [French and African], Scottish, and Native American.

    Her father in law, Vernon Jarrett, was a communist, and appeared weekly years ago on a local Chicago TV station, bashing the US, foaming at the mouth.

  3. The ABC Executive “wasn’t buying it” when Rosanne said she didn’t know Jarrett is black. Valerie Jarrett is probably unknown to most people so it would be interesting to have street interviews with the question on her heritage.

    When Mariah Carey rose to great popularity I had told others that She was of black heritage. The response was adamant disbelief. I’m sure most are aware of it Now. There are quite a few black Americans that the average person would think otherwise, and Valerie Jarrett is even more lighter skinned than Mariah and others.

    This alone, along with Rosanne’s deep apology and feelings of horror at the realization, Should have been enough for the network. Obviously the comparison in the twitter post was less than secondary for the show’s cancellation. It will be nearly impossible to convince me the primary reason for cancellation wasn’t Rosanne’s support for Trump. Wasn’t Tim Allen’s popular show on ABC also.

    The networks will Not allow anything positive about their opponents. Also, it’s not specific to Trump. Whichever Republican that would have won would be in the same crosshairs. They are left with a decline in support that is predominately coastal. Their only recourse is acting as children who cannot have what they desire most, in an instance of time. They are undisciplined children who stomp their feet with rhetoric that will get more extreme as time progresses. They may “begin” to realize their childish behavior if Trump is re-elected because it will show their foot-stomping was ineffective. That is, if they are truly adults.
