    Sure it is, but how can they be blamed for taking the easy way out if it's offered?

    That's not what I've seen.

    He was getting something for nothing from the government. When a single mom in a big city does that it's called "welfare." .
    It's his fault for not paying the fee. It's not his fault that the BLM responded in a thoroughly aggressive and unnecessary manner.

They don't like Keyes for the same reasons they don't like Gingrich or Huckabee. Why does his race even come into it?
    "Democratic supporters of Townsend threw Oreo cookies at Michael Steele, the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor. Steele is African-American; to label an African-American an “Oreo” is to say that he, like an Oreo cookie, is black on the outside and white on the inside. It is considered a significant racial slur."

    Michael Steele

    Why indeed.

    Only if you take things out of context..... the suggestion was that Cliven racism is somewhat explainable as he is an uneducated man. Someone made an assertion that educated people (would not be racist; not likely be racist; less likely racist.... not certain as to the exact assertion). I was only pointing that educated people can be racist.

    Fine to somewhat noble for you to be the last man standing in protecting the reputation of Sterling. I do want to point that the NBA, which likely has more information about the matter than just about anyone else, is much further down that tracks than you. As you stand on the platform waiting for the next train you should ask yourself if protecting Sterling's reputation is out of your nobility; your naivete or you have a habit of defending racists...

    "It didn't happen here," said Vander Harris, operations manager of the Morgan fine arts center. "I was in on the cleanup, and we found no cookies or anything else abnormal."

    "They fell on the floor; two rolled up next to my shoe," Steele said. "I remember turning to someone and saying, `Anyone got a glass of milk?'"

    Steele weighs in on the Oreo incident - Baltimore Sun

    From your own source: "Steele will tell Segraves that he was never struck by any thrown cookies. “I’ve never claimed that I was hit, no. The one or two that I saw at my feet were there. I just happened to look down and see them,” he will say. By November 15, the Associated Press will report that Ehrlich says “he did not personally see cookies thrown at Steele because he was on stage,” and “said he doesn’t know who might have thrown them.”"

    If you want to argue my original assertion, find me an example with some substance to it. I'm sure there are a few out there.

    So, the 'victim' of the incident says it happened, but since the liberal running the hall where they were speaking on a liberal campus, says it didn't so not only do we need corroboration, but the perps as well to admit that they threw them....If it were a black liberal that the cookies were thrown at, during a speech at a conservative campus like oh, say, Liberty University, then all we would need is an allegation....Nice how your world works....

    Kind of like Cleaver saying someone spit at him during the march to jam O-care down our throats, when no one out of the thousands of people with cell camera's that were there caught it....

    Keep up the double standards....We don't enough here that do that....
