Why Can Dems Say Racists Things?

"He [Reid] was wowed by Obama's oratorical gifts and believed that the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama -- a 'light-skinned' African American 'with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,' "

Had a republican said this, people would want their head on a stick.  Trent Lott made a statement at a birthday party for a man that once ran for the office of president.  He was trying to make kind remarks to an old man.  The comments were insenstive and not well thought out, but were in no way meant to say that the dixiecrat party beliefs were ok.  Nor did the word "negro" come up.  If you go and look back at the speech he never mentioned race at all.  All he said was that he would have made a good president.  Everyone turned their back on Lott at the time, including President Bush.  Lott had no choice but to resign his leadership position. 

First of all, who uses the word negro anymore?  This is a term that has not been used in decades, and for many is considered a put down.  This is a man who made a reference to slaverly just a few short weeks ago.  It is the democrats that keeping bringing racial overtones into the national converstation.  It is time that they put or shut up when it comes to race. You want to say that you are the party that cares about the minorities in this country then prove it.  Stop bringing race onto the national stage and trying to make the divides in this country even worse than they already are. 

Where is Jesse Jackson and Rev. Al Shartpton now?  I can guarantee you had a republican used these words, we would be hearing plenty.

Democrats are such hypocrites. They take advantage of the race card to futher their own agenda. The Dems believe that they own anything to do with the history of the slaves and skin color speech. A new type of fascism or anti-free speech? But, the fact is Republicans were the ones responsible for freeing the slaves. WE need to spread that information much better than we have in the past.

Teresa's right. The hypocrisy of these arrogant jerks is just unbelievable: Dingy Harry spews this idiocy, and it's shrugged off by the media. Trent Lott, for a less aggregious reference, is drummed out of his leadership (unfortunately, by 'OUR' guys).

They can say what they want and get away with it because the ends justify the means.

The Republicans only freed the slaves because it served the larger political goal of suppressing states rights and supporting northern commercial and banking interests. The reason for the war was primarily economic. If Lincoln had his way, the blacks in America would have been sent back to Africa. This is why you never hear Republican leaders touting their "abolitionist roots". It would be too easy to blow them out of the water.

Sharpton is backing Harry, of course. Libs stick together no matter what.

I heard Al Sharpton said today that Reid apologized so everything is OK now. Ya. Right. Only a lib could get away with this.
