    Re: Reid apologizes for 'no Negro dialect' comment

    Does everyone here see his use of "Negro dialect" as insulting? I think it's vulgar but I think he meant it as a sort of positive thing Obama can do to improve his chance of winning. A black politician who can't speak to the black population and win their adoration is as good as lost the election.

I think it's a joke when the blacks like to be called Afro-Americans, if your skin is black, it's black, could it be that the blacks born in the United States feel superior to blacks born in other countries that Africa. Are they racists
    This whole post is racist "speak"..

    I swear sometimes I lose hope in people being caring

    Or, perhaps it's not odd at all.


    Added for emphasis:
    Michael Steele is a disgrace to his race and leads a party that wishes to oppress his very own peoples.

    Some may find my saying it wrong but it is very true.

    No, the equivalent of Reid's comments coming from Steele would have been something like this:

    We lost to Barack Obama because John McCain is just another old cracker.

    Sorry, but a harmless joke directed at his own race and the use of a common Americanism in a context totally unrelated to race is not the same as lauding a black man for not having a Negro dialect. It's sad that you cannot see the difference.
    There is such a thing as being racist towards your own race and am pretty sure you know this!

    sad how the brainwashing has worked so well on you
    the republicans want blacks to rise or fall of their own accord, with a safety net if they fall on hard times

    You and your dems have been enslaving them with social programs for decades creating generational poverty, ingnorance and an unneccessary underclass.

    is it a compliment in your opinion to say 'You can tell an educated black man because he speaks white" ??????

    a black politician who has to ghetto up his delivery has failed his constituency long before he will be elected.

    I am far from being brainwashed and the republicans could give a crap less about black people, white people or any other people. They are the party for the rich. Period.

    Shame on the dem party for wanting people to have food, water, homes, jobs, etc. Sure the Dem is the party of evil

    The Democratic Party gives a crap about people-unlike the repubs.

    Disgrace to his race? Wishes to oppress his people?

    Perfect example of the sick Liberal mentality. "His people."

    These are AMERICANS, with all the opportunities afforded Americans.

    Tell me genius, how is he oppressing His people, or any people?

    Republicans would prefer a society that isn't fragmented into This-American, That-American, but it's the game played by the socialists like you and your party.

    It is not Republicans calling blacks Conda-skeeza Rice or Colon Powell. That is the poisonous Reverend of the Church Obama sought out and attended for 20-years.

    We don't have party elders claiming Hymie-Town, and making derogatory comments about Jews, or wanting to "cut the nuts out" of a presidential candidate that actually said something about personal responsibility and illegitimate children. No that's the Democrat leadership or their mentors. Jackson, Sharpton, Wright.

    And what happens to these scum? Nothing. They keep forging on.
