Jasmyne Cannick is a promiment gay activist and wants Isaiah Washington to get his job back. She has organized a petition asking ABC to re-hire him to "Grey's Anatomy." The petition already has over 1,000 signatures.
Jasmyne belives that Isaiah was fired, because he was black. The petition believes that his firing "further adds to a disturbing new trend at ABC wherein minority actors have been dismissed at an alarming rate over the past two years. Blacks, including . . . Star Jones ('The View'), Harold Perrineau ('Lost'), Alfre Woodard, Mehcad Brooks and Page Kennedy ('Desperate Housewives') have been let go . . . One must ask themselves, what is going on? . . . While we don't approve of [Washington's] use of the F-word at the Golden Globes, Washington has since apologized and gone on to perform community service by way of a public service announcement for the very organizations that have been orchestrating his dismissal. But it seems it wasn't enough."
She goes on to say that Isaiah has done more for the gay community than TR Knight. Oh brother!
"Isaiah has done more for the gay and lesbian community than T.R. Knight did in or out of the closet. He did what they asked him to do, and now they want to make sure he will never work again. At what point is enough enough?"
Blah! Blah! Blah! Blah! Blah! What's done is done. Isaiah was not fired, because he's black. He was fired because the cast probably was sick of his ass! He will get another job and all be well in the world again. I was sad when Harold from Lost left the show though. I sort of loved his ass.
