But did you know that GeorgeWashington Carver, a black man, introduced thecultivation of peanuts to America? He also inventedpeanut butter. He was a wonderful man. And did youever notice how peanut butter tastes better on darkbread? Dark beer is better, too. And black bean soupis much better than white bean. Dark is just better.And black is best. I’m Andy Rooney and I like blackpeople. I really do. … It’s fags I hate.
