    That may have been heard by those so filled with paranoia that their hearing/thought processes no longer function properly. In fact the first person to bring up race in his first run as President was Barrack Obama.

    Breitbart or The Blaze won't talk about this part of the poll.

    He was right of-course.
    Rush? You mean the guy who called Obama the "magic negro" said Obama's election would make race relations worse? I'm shocked

    Limbaugh never coined the term or popularized it. He reported on it.

    "Barack the Magic Negro"[2] is a song by American political satirist Paul Shanklin who wrote and recorded it for the Rush Limbaugh Show as satire after the title phrase was first applied to presidential candidate Obama by movie and culture critic David Ehrenstein in a Los Angeles Times op ed column of March 19, 2007. It was played numerous times in 2007 and 2008 by Rush Limbaugh and appeared on the 2008 album We Hate the USA. It is sung by Shanklin to the tune of "Puff, the Magic Dragon". Shanklin impersonates black activist Al Sharpton, who regretfully sings that white people will vote for Barack Obama for President instead of Sharpton, because Obama is a magical Negro (a term previously popularized by Spike Lee[3]), not a real black man from the "hood".

    Thanks for that.

    There is more on David Ehrenstein, a Black man who popularized the term but didn't invent it.. http://www.latimes.com/la-oe-ehrenst...r19-story.html

    Of course, the Republican party of Lincoln has nothing to do with the Republican party today. But I suspect you already know this, eh Mr. "independent"?
