    How was he insulting them by telling the truth? You are using political correctness as an excuse to trash him.

    Nice to see a liberal supporting this racism. NOT.

    You never did answer my question. You used an ad hominem attack instead.

    I can not take a comment like yours seriously. Trolling, trolling, trolling down the river.

    If you are saying 'Whitey' = good english, not necessarily true.....
    I would have to say 'good English' is a direct proportion of how much education you recieved....
    That's why when you sound like that, (white or black), you sound like a dumbass & it is usually true......

    You must have your pants on backwards, accusing a conservative of using PC is a joke first off, you lose your credibility immediately. FAIL

    You don't debate. You argue.

    So, for the record, you believe that using archaic, racial stereotypes when referring to persons of color is always unacceptable, in any form. Is that about right?

    Actually, the quote is "I got the fried chicken and potato salad!" and it was uttered by RNC Chairman Michael Steele, six months ago.

    Steele: I’ll Attract Diversity To GOP With “Fried Chicken & Potato Salad”

    Last weekend, in a sit-down with bloggers during the Young Republicans convention in Indiana, RNC Chairman Michael Steele revealed his strategy for attracting diverse Republicans.

    Cameron Cowan of The Mile Hive, a Denver blog, asked Steele what his plan is for including “diverse populations” into the Republican party.

    “My plan is to say, ‘Ya’ll come!” Steele said, adding, “I got the fried chicken and potato salad!”

    I agree. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. And those who perpetuate racial stereotypes should be roundly criticized, regardless of political leaning.

    So now we're all anxiously awaiting your similar condemnation of Steele, and your demands that he be drummed out of his position/party, tarred and feathered, etc.
