    Reid is a scum bag..............He is supposed to be a devout mormon but he violates every mormon law..........He will be history in November............He trails by a big margin in every poll......

    Unfortunately, Harry is just a product of an older generation of people who thought it was okay to negatively steryotype specific people. Appologizing for using an offensive term certainly doesn't desensitize the fact that he just offended millions and millions of people. It doesn't suddenly make everything okay again. Basically what I'm saying is that he's a dumb***.
    I love America more than any other country in this world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.

    The right that is calling for Reid's resignation over this is the same who had no problem with so many of it's members supporting Barack the Magic Negro songs. I guess it's okay now because Red said Obama didn't speak Ebonics i.e Negro Dialect.

    But wiki says that gringo is an ethnic slur, so according to Glinda, it's as bad as dropping the n-bomb.

    Re: Reid apologizes for 'no Negro dialect' comment

    It's kind of bizarre how things come out months later. Remember Obama saying something like, " The typical white woman"? That came and went. Reid saying this in light of Obama was just as bad. What is alarming to me is that he mentioned dialect. He knew better. It's time for Harry to retire. I think he's old school and has that mindset.
    We may not agree on everything but I bet we could find some common ground.
