    Glad to see the RNC chairman doesn't support racist idiots. Too bad the same can't be said for the other conservatives and Republicans.

    Most Conservatives don't. Just a few in the lunatic fringe, such as Rush.

    Paul Shanklin and Rush Limbaugh aren't racist. But it's fun to watch the PC sensitives cry about things they say and do.

    Re: RNC chairman condemns controversial Obama song

    Huh....Spike Lee the black director.......






    Magical negro
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    J

    The magical negro (sometimes called the mystical negro or magic negro) is a supporting, often mystical stock character in fiction who, by use of special insight or powers, helps the white protagonist get out of trouble. The word negro, now considered by many as archaic and offensive, is used intentionally to suggest that the archetype is a racist throwback, an update of the "Sambo" and "savage other" stereotypes.[1] Spike Lee popularized the term, deriding the archetype of the "super-duper magical negro" in 2001 while discussing films with students at Washington State University and at Yale University.[2][3]

    hahaha...

    Nice job condemning a song months after the election and a year after it was actually first thought up. Real good.

    Espicially love the people blaming Limbaugh in this thread, when it was a term used about Obama by a news paper editorial, comparing Obama to the "magic negro", which is an established theatrical character of older films and newer (Legend of Bagger Vance is an example of a newer "magic negro" story).

    Condemn the song if you want, no problem, but it'd be nice if people actually got pissy about **** with some actual factual knowledge rather than just being bigots themselves by instantly thinking "My god he said negro, RACISTS RACISTS!"

    OMG a conservative made a song about a "magic negro?" WTF ZOMG RACIST!

    That's the basis of this story. The real story is the cowardice of the RNC chair.

    For those that haven't actually HEARD the damned song, here it is. The "video" is fan made, it's just a full copy of the song.


    Yeah, this is just a "racist" song... really.

    That's hilarious. A white conservative sings a song about how racially inauthentic Barack Obama is, like he is the authority on who is or isn't racially authentic. The song is absolutely racist. The fact that you don't see it makes you a partisan hack. The fact that the RNC chairman is suddenly offended by it makes him a political strategist, and not a very good one. If someone is going to have the balls to make a racist song in the first place, they should at least have the balls to admit that they are being racist.

    Well I just listened to the song and I don't think it is racist, just a pretty lame parody. I will say it is no worse than anything I saw on "In Living Color" or even some SNL skits.

    Some people just playing politics again.

    It is OK for someone to make a song parody "I Can Do Whatever I'm White" but "Barrack The Magic Negro" is racist? Hypocrisy at it's finest.

    Yeah. It's not racist, it's just juvenile. It sounds like that guy wrote the lyrics in 5 minutes.
