“Racism, we are not cured of it. And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public,.”
“That’s not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It’s not just a matter of overt discrimination. Societies don’t, overnight, completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior.”
OMG! The POTUS said the N-Word! Of course the press lost their damn minds and the Infantiling of America continues.
My reaction is BFD and GTFU.
In this stiflingly politically correct age it’s refreshing to hear the President talk like real people do. I don’t use the ethnic slur nigger often (and I gave my daughter the Death Stare when she did at the dinner table the other night), but I NEVER use the weak and wimpy “N-word” if I can help it. It’s a phrase with no guts and no balls and a total dodge.
Free History Lesson for anyone Shocked and Awed when Presidents stop pretending and start getting real. We know White Presidents have said “nigger.” Many of the early Commander-In-Chiefs owned slaves and Andrew Jackson was a slave trader! The first White President held slaves and George Washington probably hung out between sessions crafting the Constitution bitching to another Founding Father how stupid, shiftless and lazy his niggers were.
A White President can say “nigger” and they have and will again. If they don’t want to be racist about it all they need to do is say it in context the way the Black President did. Then sit back and watch the media lose their minds about that.
Everything Obama said has been reduced to one stupid word. Faux Noise Network is positively wetting themselves with indignant harrumphs. As if they’ve never generously applied the word to the president in editorial meetings.
Fox News contributor Deneen Borelli, who is black, expressed outrage during a discussion on the Fox News show “America’s Newsroom.”
“He has really dragged in the gutter-speak of rap music,” Borelli said. “So now he’s the first President of rap, of street? I mean, come on, he has lowered the stature of the high office of the President of the United States.”
“The President-in-chief, the rapper-in-chief now, is further dividing our country,” Borelli continued.
Borelli, a Conservative Review correspondent, said Obama’s use of the word spoke “volumes” about who he is as a President.
“The man is divisive and he has taken the level of the office of the presidency down to another level by saying these words and he’s continuing — listen, class warfare — you name it,” Borelli said, trying to list what Obama has done wrong. “He’s dividing the country. … He makes it seem like our country is the racist (sic) country in the world, and it’s not.”
Host Bill Hemmer contributed his take on the use of the word.
“I mean as a white American, my entire life I know that this is an electric word,” Hemmer said. “And you stay away from it. … This is something that we thought was entirely off-limits and now you have the President using it.”
Shut the hell up! Your stupidity offends me. Damn Fox News!
As many times as Obama has been called a nigger, if he can’t say it, nobody can.
