Did Harry Reid's comments validate Barack Obama as being the "Magic Negro"?
This morning I watched Meet the Press. David Gregory's guests were RNC Chairman Michael Steele and DNC Chariman Tim Kane. David brought up the issue of Reid's remarks, it was beyond humorous watching Tim Kane trying to validate the comments by saying that Reid didn't mean nothing negative, and his comments have been taken out of context for what they were meant, Obama accepted Reid's apology yesterday. Tim Kane is either clueless or a self serving political hack. Reid's comments was more directed at blacks in general then Barack Obama, because Reid's comment illustrated the "type" of black person that would be "acceptable" to become president. I know without a shadow of a doubt that if the Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell would have made the exact same carbon copy remark, black liberals, the NAACP and pundits in the media would be demanding for McConnell to resign effective immediately. So I'm going to watch the network newscasts over the next twenty four hours to forty eight hours just to see how they "handle this story". I'll repeat this again, what Reid said has to do more with blacks in general then just Obama. Last year before the Democratic primaries, it was Senator Joe Biden who said “you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”
I have yet to get an answer to my question that I asked last year in response to Joe Biden's comment. What is a "mainstream" African American? Could a "mainstream" African American to liberals be any black person who is "not dark skinned" and doesn't have a "negro dialect"? Former Senate Majority leader Trent Lott didn't make a racist statement at Strom Thurmond's 100th birthday party, yet he lost his leadership position because he said a kind comment about Thurmond. Tim Kane demonstrated how much of a two faced hypocrite he is as the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee. I've always said that there is a deep, embedded double standard when it comes to the issue or race in politics. This latest example is just one more grain of proof in a huge pile of evidence. When Barack Obama was a then State Senator from Illinois, he demanded on a radio talk show that Trent Lott resign. In this case however, Obama defends Reid even though Reid actually made a statement that is offensive to blacks period regardless of party affiliation or ideology. It appears that Barack Obama cares more about getting his agenda passed then defending what is right. The last three black candidates to run for the Democratic nomination for president were Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Carol Mosley Braun. Could the comments by Reid and Biden served as evidence to why these three black candidates weren't taken seriously in the Democratic primaries? Could it have been because these three candidates weren't "articulate, clean, light skinned and had negro dialects"? I still remember how Congressman Joe Wilson was branded a racist merely for claiming Obama lied. I forgot, Democrats are a protected class. Liberals want to paint conservatives as the ones who are "racially insensitive". Why is it then that liberals are the ones always being caught saying the most racially insensitive things like with now Harry Reid? If the Democratic Party is so in tune with the black community, why did Harry Reid make such a comment?
This is what I had to say about the stupid and out of touch comments by Harry Reid and the dismissal of Reid's comments by Democratic National Committee Chariman Tim Cane.
