Perron is still stupid for saying it while thinking it wasn't though (if that makes any sense).
Yes I am very well aware of the meaning, and so did Perron btw.
Considering that Laraque is black and talks about racism in his book, it is a very poor choice of words.
Not the first time he's made racist remarks. He was invited on Loft Story as a panelist with Jean Page once, and when "analyzing" the events in the show, he said one of the participants must be from the ghetto because he was black. The crowd were taken back from the comments, silenced, and then booed Perron.
The man is an idiot, period.
