    Why does anyone still listen to Charles Rangel? He is the textbook definition of prejudice.

    The man is fair representation of the liberal left politics. What other political party could embrace racism in such an overt way and continue to get elected? This is the same political party who invites Rev. Al Sharpton to the WH for consultation.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It's a term of respect and honor. Like "Redskin."

    Why is he not in jail? That's the real question.

    Probably because there would be nation wide Ferguson type riots if anyone tried to put him in jail.

    His constituents love him. They fall into the "stupid American voters" group.

    And the Dems wouldn't dare jail him. They just gave him a slap on the wrist. Naughty boy.

    Greetings, tres borrachos.

    You gotta admit that over the years he has provided many "comic relief" moments. It's probably why he has lasted so long! No one really cares.....

    Harlem Rep. Charles Rangel meant no disrespect when he previously called Tea Party members “white crackers” — he says it was actually a compliment.

    The longtime Capitol Hill Democrat said Monday that he thought cracker “was a term of endearment” and was puzzled by the firestorm that his use of the term in a 2013 interview set off.

    In a chat with the Huffington Post on Monday, Rangel offered a half-hearted apology for using the word when comparing the Tea Party to Jim Crow segregationists.


    Rangel: Calling Tea Party 'white crackers' was a compliment - NY Daily News

    Awesome. Stupid and a crook. What a combination! And he won re-election by a landslide.
    There is one way to end hurtful names for different races. Make those names stand for tasty treats. Obviously, "cracker" means what it says. But what about "nigger"? Here is a commercial for a tasty treat called "niggers" to demonstrate this.....

    Woman at party: Damn, I see plenty of crackers at this party, but where are the niggers?

    Second woman: I see your point. Damn, you just can't have a party without niggers!!

    Announcer: Niggers, in the snack food aisle, right next to the Crackers. Don't throw a party without 'em.
