    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    So then do you applaud the Nazi patrolling the border in Arizona then?

    I guess the NAACP is not of sound mind then.......

    The reaction from many in the audience is disturbing. We will be looking into the behavior of NAACP representatives at this local event and take any appropriate action.

    We thank those who brought this to our national offices attention, as there are hundreds of local fundraising dinners each year.

    What we see here is typical of some on the extremes of both parties. If you do not respond fast enough, you are too slow. If you respond immediately, you are not waiting for all the facts to come in. If you condemn a woman for giving a speech about her overcoming her own racism, then you still have to find fault somewhere, even when it turns out you where wrong. Don't ever back down, just look for new avenues to attack. Admitting you where wrong is last thing the far extremes will ever do.

    That would explain the phrase "both parties". This is just today's example of it.

    What I find distressing about this whole affair is that here is a woman who we should be applauding. She is black, and did not use that as an excuse to not do what she could. She got an education(think about her age and when she as a black woman got that education...worth noting the odds where against her), and then used that education to get into political service. She then made the self-discovery that she too had her issues with racism, and worked to overcome it(almost all of us have some racism in us, but few realize it, and fewer still work to overcome it).

    She then went to an organization by and for blacks, and delivers a message that could be received poorly, that blacks can be racist too, and that blacks need to overcome it. That speaks to a real personal courage. We should all be standing together saying, now, that we as a country need more people like her. Instead, she was called a racist and condemned, because some one admitted that they waned to lash out back at some one else entirely, and instead of taking 30 minutes to fact check, rushed to get the (false) story out there. That people believed the story is not a crime, it is normal. We react to the information we are given. And this woman, who has done no wrong, has her life disrupted and is condemned, all because she chose to pass along a positive message we all should appreciate, and because in our rush to win politically we forget about the people in the way.

    The reason it's not racist that the audience applauded the comment about the white farmer is because ... ready? ... THEY DIDN'T.

    Just another lie that people want to believe so badly that they do, despite the evidence.

    They have changed their tune when they got to see the whole video, not the edited version. When one sees the edited version, one gets a whole different picture.
