    The party of the Klu Klux Klan has a member spewing racial remarks? What a shocker!

    That is not an argument. What is wrong with the statement?

    Obama has the chance to show some consistency.

    Obama in '02: 'The Republican Party itself has to drive out Trent Lott' | The Weekly Standard

    Obi: Illinois Senator Barack Obama (D-13th), who hosted WVON's Cliff Kelley Show, challenged the Republican Party to repudiate Lott's remarks and to call for his resignation as senate leader.

    "The Republican Party itself has to drive out Trent Lott. If they have to stand for something, they have to stand up and say this is not the person we want representing our party."
    Oh SNAP!
    He forgave Reid. How nice. Such consistency.... but...

    Th-th-th-th-that's P-p-p-p-p-olitics F-folks!... as usual

    Hope... ROTFLMAO.
    Change? Hahahahahaha...

    You do know Trent Lott supported Strom Thurmond right? Comparing Obama saying that it should kick out racism supporters is kind of far from Harry Reid saying Obama doesn't speak ebonics.

    That is not a "Negro dialect." That is a bull**** bigoted stereotype of an American black.

    You're still doing it Zim. Confusing political party with political ideology. None of the folks that you mention held liberal positions on things like race. Tell us, do you think the Democrats who voted against civil rights would have voted FOR affirmative action? Never. And yet, affirmative action is a liberal policy.

    SOME conservatives supported civil rights, but this was primarily a liberal issue.

    This is not about the word "Negro" which is the scientific term for the "negroid" race. "Barrack The Magic Negro" is about as offensive as "Bush The Magic Caucasian" or "Kim Jong Ill The Magic Asain" etc.

    Their is no such thing as a racial dialect. All whites, blacks etc do no not speak a language purely or scientifically based on race. What this is about is an elected official saying the president doesent speak Ebonics when he is with his black friends, or something to that effect.

    Not inherently racist, but definitely bigoted and disrespectful.

    He said Barack Obama doesn't speak negro dialect(ebonics) unless he wants to. What is disrespectful about that? I've heard Obama speak ebonics in front of certain groups. He doesn't speak like that in front of everyone. I really don't get what the deal is with all this.

    Because Ebonics is NOT a Negro dialect. Unless he is extremely ignorant or just to stupid for words, it was a racial slur and all blacks should be upset that in this day and age. People think Ebonics is some kind of dialect representing the black man.

    It is a lower form of English, bastardized in pop culture and black society by the uneducated.
