Talk about a stunner.
One would think someone, as grounded as Dolly Parton, would know and understand the background and origins of the rioters calling themselves “protesters” even as they loot the Magnificent Mile in Chicago, but apparently not.
“I understand people having to make themselves known and felt and seen,” she said. “And of course Black lives matter. Do we think our little White a**es are the only ones that matter? No!”
No, for her it seems to be all about the choice of words:
“There’s such a thing as innocent ignorance, and so many of us are guilty of that,” she told the magazine.
“When they said ‘Dixie’ was an offensive word, I thought, ‘Well, I don’t want to offend anybody. This is a business. We’ll just call it The Stampede.’ As soon as you realize that [something] is a problem, you should fix it. Don’t be a dumba**. That’s where my heart is. I would never dream of hurting anybody on purpose.”
Sad to say it, but by her words Dolly Parton demonstrates that she is part of the machine tearing apart the country as opposed to being a force for uniting it. Hopefully, someone as smart and business savvy as Dolly is will realize this error before it costs her everything she’s worked for.
