    So in your mind byrd is not a racist but strom and lott are?


    Whats the difference? Hmmm....
    In my mind the difference is that Byrd made his statements fifty years ago and apologized several times of his own accord, Lott made his comment a few years ago and only apologized after intense media coverage of his comment. What do you see as the difference here?

    Byrd didn't apologize until 1982, almost 20 years after filibustering the Civil Rights Act.. Byrd seemed to change his position according to the the political winds blowing at the time.

    Thurmond voted for the extension of the voting rights act, making King's birthday a federal holiday, and hired black staffers when it was uncommon. Seems to me he apologized by deeds rather than by empty rhetoric.

    Did Obama ever make an apology regarding calling white people racist?


    Lets hold you to the same standards here.

    Except the difference here is that you're twisting words

    He didn't say "a typical white person is racist". If you can't even discuss the clip honestly, I see no reason to discuss this with you

    then run away. he absolutley said just that...


    in his speech he said his grandmother was scared of black people and would make racial utterances.


    he then said in a radio interview that her views were typical of white people....



    I am being honest, it is you who is not.

    Really?

    I suppose I could say that Tiger Woods is a typical black person, his bad behavior was bred into him .... and you wouldn't consider that racist ???

    Same thing as Obama said about his grandmother.
