Blacks call eachother "nigger" , I'm so not concerned with "boy".Here's the deal. It's not that Christie is racist. He isn't. It's not that he's stupid either. He isn't. Let me explain.
In the South, the term "boy" is derogatory, because a lot of white people used to use the term in that fashion when talking to black people. But there are a lot of white people in the North that don't see "boy" in that context. Being from Michigan, I used that word a lot, and of course, there was no intent there to use it in a derogatory way. It is used commonly all the time in the North. "Boy, is it hot out today". "Boy, the Detroit Tigers kicked ass today". "Boy, you better get your act together". Nothing racial in these statements. Of course, the North isn't the South either, but guess what? Christie is from the North. If he was from the South, then due to the history of the usage of the word "boy" there, we might be able to accuse him of something. But he isn't. His use of the word is strictly in a Northern context. In other words, the man is innocent.
Let me tell you what the real problem is here. Many on the left see Christie as an opponent who could give him trouble in 2016, so the mud slinging is starting early. I think Christie should have seen this coming, but now that he has seen it, he is going to really need to watch himself between now and the next election. Dirty politics is here again, but did it ever really go away? LOL.
