53. The Obama camp didn't call him a racist, Clyburn didn't either
The first charge of racism came from the Clintons when they cried that people were calling them racists.

They did say some racially insensitive things and need to live up to that. I'm sick of this crying because they said some stupid things. If they didn't say anything there would be no case.

It's wrong to say that this came from the Obama camp.

Most blacks who criticized him never said he was racist.

We need a working definition of that word because it's used far too often. I believe most people hide behind that word because they don't really want the discussion to go forward.

They said some dumb stuff and got called on it.
