    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.
    Michael Steele IS a black man, so he is allowed to make comments like that.

    Try again.

    Because Michael Steele is an important black leader, perpetuating racial stereotypes about blacks should be an anathema to him.

    Careful. Your partisan racial hypocrisy is showing.

    So you plan on encouraging Sharpton and Jackson to do the same, aren't YOU?

    Didn't you know that Steele is just an Uncle Tom. It doesn't matter if he's black, he's not allowed to talk about black people like Sharpton, Jackson, Holder, and the others are.

    And Glinda has the nerve to call others hypocrites....

    I always have. Sharpton and Jackson are a couple of clowns and their habit of using the race card at every opportunity is an impediment to achieving any real progress in solving racial issues in America.

    But then again, I'm not the one jumping up and down in outrage, demanding that anyone be ousted/blackballed/fired/tarred and feathered for being a clown or an impediment to solving our racial troubles.

    Only the right is doing that. While conveniently ignoring their own political leader's similar transgressions.

    I'm shocked, I tell you. SHOCKED.

    Not necessarily. Laying eggs is good for a goose, but it wreaks havoc on a gander.

    Good, then you agree that Steele had every right to say that. I knew you would see the error of your ways.
