Given an audience, this is how people will behave. Is there anyone who will disavow the sentiments of this American citizen? Anyone?
Appearing on an Australian television show which featured performers in black face, Harry Connick handled himself with dignity and honor as he spoke out against the inherent racism behind such a skit he was asked to judge. You can see the skit and watch Connick’s response to it below. He spoke with measured tones and with a seriousness deserving of the abuse, handling himself with dignity. His remarks were well received by the Australian audience which applauded what he had to say. His remarks transcended race and are an indication of where we are as a country today. Anyone watching how he handled himself and what he said should feel proud of the way he was representin’ America. Connick, from a grateful citizen of the United States….thank you!
