• Video: Was Katt Williams’ rant at a heckler patriotic or just racist?

    We all know Katt Williams isn’t the most brilliantly-adjusted citizen. He’s a comic who gets himself in trouble — legal and otherwise — every few months or so. Most recently, Katt made a scene during a stand-up show in Phoenix on Saturday. From the video below, it’s unclear how the situation started. However, the video’s description on YouTube explains it like this: “Katt Williams starts raggin’ on Mexicans and then once someone tried to defend their race Katt went in on him and security had to come out to keep the heckler quiet while Katt leaned in on him more.” What is clear from the clip is that Williams had a lot to say about the audience member’s apparent ethnicity.

    “…do you remember when white people used to say go back to Africa?” Katt says toward the end of the rant. “And we’d have to tell them we dont want to? So if you love Mexico, bitch, get the f*ck over there! [sings “Star Spangled Banner”] We were slaves, bitch. You just all work like that at the landscapers. It’s not even racial — you’re a bitch! I don’t give a fuck what race that is, that’s a pussy.” You can watch the whole speech below.

    Katt sure seems proud of his country. Or something. Though, honestly, I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about half the time. So, I’ll turn it over to you guys for an opinion. Was there racism behind Katt’s words or was he just being really pro-American? Or is Katt just crazy?
