Here's a good Reggie joke (well, not a joke as much as his own ridiculous remarks about white people, gay Americans and others):

Reggie White Stuns Wisconsin Lawmakers

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Lawmakers sat in stunned silence as ordained minister Reggie White, the Green Bay Packers star, declared that homosexuality is a sin, black people are gifted at worship and whites "know how to tap into money."

During a nearly hourlong speech Wednesday, White touched on his community work and a recent trip to Israel. But it was his remarks about gays and race that turned the Assembly's applause to rapt attention and caused the room to go quiet.

White said the nation has turned from God, partly by allowing homosexuality to "run rampant."

He said homosexuality is a sin -- and the plight of gays and lesbians shouldn't be compared to the struggles faced by black people.

"Homosexuality is a decision, it's not a race," White said. "People from all different ethnic backgrounds live in this lifestyle. But people from all different ethnic backgrounds also are liars and cheaters and malicious and back-stabbing."

He said he has pondered why God created different races. White said each has certain gifts, which he then rattled off in succession.

Blacks are gifted at worship and celebration, he said. "If you go to a black church, you see people jumping up and down because they really get into it," he said.

White people are good at organization, he said.

"You guys do a good job of building businesses and things of that nature, and you know how to tap into money," said White.

"Hispanics were gifted in family structure, and you can see a Hispanic person, and they can put 20, 30 people in one home," he said.

The Japanese and other Asians are inventive, and "can turn a television into a watch," White said. Indians are gifted in spirituality, he said.

"When you put all of that together, guess what it makes: It forms a complete image of God," White said.

White later said his comments were about coming together as a society and were not meant to stereotype the races.

"This is the first time I've been at a loss for words," Assembly Minority Leader Walter Kunicki said afterward. "You can still tell from the tension in the room that much of this was offensive."

CBS Sports spokeswoman Leslie Ann Wade declined to comment on White's speech or whether his remarks would affect his chances for a studio analyst's job he is seeking.

"CBS doesn't accept bias from any of its announcers of any kind," Wade said. The network fired football analyst Jimmy "The Greek" Snyder in 1988 for saying that blacks had been "bred from slavery" to make better athletes.
