Rogan: “I’m not a bigot”

“I know for the vast majority there’s no setting where a white individual is permitted to say that word, never mind freely on a webcast, and I concur with that now, I haven’t said it in years, yet for quite a while, when I would bring that word up, rather than saying the N-word, I would simply give the signal.
“I’m no bigot, but rather at whatever point you’re in a circumstance where you need to say ‘I’m not bigot,’ you f-up, and I have f-up,” he added.

“I can’t travel once more into the past and change what I said, I want to, clearly that is unrealistic, however, I in all actuality do trust this could be a workable second for anyone that doesn’t understand how hostile that word could be emerging from a white individual’s mouth, in setting or wrong,” the host added.
