Reid sticks his foot in his mouth

Why is it that politicians don’t think before they open their mouths? What is actually worse it the latent racism that exists even in those who claim that they are not racist.

 

The latest victim of this is Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader.

 

In a recently released book, “Game Change”, by Journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, Reid said privately that Obama, as a black candidate, could be successful thanks, in part, to his “light-skinned” appearance and speaking patterns “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”

 

Reid, who is facing a tough re-election bid, immediately apologized to President Obama, who accepted the apology without question.

 

In his apology statement Reid also said

“I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African Americans for my improper comments.”

 

“I was a proud and enthusiastic supporter of Barack Obama during the campaign and have worked as hard as I can to advance President Obama’s ..continue reading

Racism and the NYC Marathon

Unfortunately racism appears again. This time related to the winner of the NYC marathon.

 

There is an article in the New York Times about Mebrahtom Keflezighi, the men’s winner of this year’s NYC Marathon.

 

Several blogs and even some MSM pundits have questioned if Keflezighi is actually an American.

 

Keflezighi was an  immigrant who came here when he was 12. He is an American citizen and has lived here for 22 years. As the Times points out he is  ”a product of American distance running programs at the youth, college and professional levels.”

 

But 22 years of living and growing up in the United States is not enough for some people. They claim he is not an American runner.

 

An incredible claim considering this country was built by immigrants.

 

But that has not stopped the veiled racist comments including “Give us all a break. It’s just another African marathon winner.”

 

“In a commentary on CNBC.com, Darren Rovell wrote, “Nothing against Keflezighi, but ..continue reading

Blatant Racism

It is sad when a justice of the peace displays blatant racism.

 

That is just what happened according to an associated press release.

 

Thirty-year-old Beth Humphrey and 32-year-old Terence McKay an interracial couple came before Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish to be married.

 

Despite a Supreme Court ruling dating back to 1963 that says that the government cannot tell people who they can and cannot marry Bardwell refused to marry the couple.

 

He reasoned that in his experience most interracial marriages do not last long. 

 

“I don’t do interracial marriages because I don’t want to put children in a situation they didn’t bring on themselves,” Bardwell said. “In my heart, I feel the children will later suffer.”

 

The ACLU was preparing a letter for the Louisiana Supreme Court, which oversees the state justices of the peace, asking them to investigate Bardwell and see if they can remove him from office.

 

Amazingly  Bardwell told the Daily Star of Hammond Louisiana ..continue reading

Blatant racism at town hall meeting

Saturday, September 5th, 2009   5:01 am | Author: freethinker | Health/Medical, Life | 1 Comment
Tags: , ,

You may expect this in the South, but in Norwalk Connecticut?

 

A Bishop from Stamford Connecticut stood up to ask a question at a town hall meeting. His question related to the loss of health care coverage when losing a job. He asked the question in Spanish because that is his native language and he knew that Representative Jim Himes who ran the town hall meeting is fluent in Spanish. Himes translated the Bishop’s question before answering it.

 

Again it is evident that these people do not want civil discussions about health care reform. Racism is just another element of who they are.

Microsoft ran an advertisement on its Polish website that included three people. They ran the same ad in the states in which one of the people was African-American. In the Polish version the head of the African-American was replaced by a white man’s head.

 

Microsoft stated that is was “a marketing mistake. We apologized, fixed the error and we are looking into how it happened.”
