"People are trying to make the Bill Bennett comment about race!"
Bennett's little sidekick is nearly crying right now on the radio program.

Little Seth is outraged that the critics are trying to make this about race!

2. You can't make comments like that and not have them be
called racist.

No matter how out of context you take a comment like that it still reeks of racism.

3. MAKE it about race???
When the whole thing he said had to do with aborting black babies?

:rofl: Sometimes I don't think Saturday Night Live has been as funny in years as some of these guys.

6. What more do they need?
Would he have had to said, "We just have too many of them negras is what the problem is" been enough to have been about race? I can't even jokingly repeat his comment to people without feeling massively uncomfortable. Good Gawd!

8. Lil' Seth, the irony escapes you... doesn't it?
"They're trying to make the Indian Wars about Indians!"

"They're trying to make Roe v. Wade about choice!"

"They're trying to make Hitler out to be a Nazi!"

9. Fleetwood Mac sang "White Rabbit?"
I don't know why they were talking about "White Rabbit" just now, but Boss Bill wanted to know who sang it, and little Seth's guess was Christine McVie.

13. hah! Bennett prefaced his comment with "I know this to be true"
can't wriggle away from the racist implications when one starts off with the "THIS IS FACT" statement before uttering it. Indicates this is believed at the core by ole values billyboybennett. Doesnt it make you feel warm and fuzzy that this bigot still garners huge speaking contracts to talk about "moral values"? Heck I bet what he can charge just increased for the CCC crowd.

15. The problem with the comment is Bennett doesn't get what the problem was
He thinks it was the implication of uegenics. But his statement carries with it the simply discrimination he represents. Round up the blacks and crime rate goes down. A blanket assertion that blacks cause crime. Nothing more bigotted than that.

19. The caller didn't inject race into the discussion
just abortion.

Bennett was the one who brought up race . . .
