Ditto! But how come I always hear about this stuff so late? Never knew that he was making fun of my people. I could have had something to be up in arms about!
Seriously, I don’t understand why people don’t learn to just shut their damn mouths. Why would you call anybody a ___ if you “didn’t know the meaning of the word”? And if you knew it was racist, more reason to shut your damn mouth.

Especially when you’re living a public life?

I’ve been following the news fairly closely, but I’ve not seen if Obama has specifically addressed the Black/Brown issue. I had been hoping he’d pick Richardson for that particular issue. Or did the Republicans throw away the Hispanic vote that was essential during 2004 with the recent anti-illegal immigrant emphasis of theirs?
Yes, the Democrats feel that they alone can save minorities from the terrible situation they find themselves born into. I understand your frustration at the Republicans trying to take away the Democrats’ voting block.
