Toby Keith: Black Society Thinks Obama Talks, Acts and Carries Himself As A Caucasian

http://thinkprogress.org/2008/07/30/toby-keith-obama-wh... /

Country singer Toby Keith, who is on a media blitz promoting his pro-lynching movie, Beer For My Horses, said during a radio interview with Glenn Beck today that he believes black society will pull for Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), even though they think in the back of their mind thathe talks, acts and carries himself as a Caucasian:

KEITH: I think that the black people would say he dont talk, act, or carry himself as a black person.

BECK: What does that even mean?

KEITH: I dont know what that means, but Im saying thats what I think that they would say. Even though the black society would pull for him, I still think that they think in the back of their mind that the only reason that he is in is because he talks, acts and carries himself as a Caucasian.

audio at the link.

So, does anyone attack McCain for Toby what'shisface being in "his camp"? Oh, wait... we're too busy listening to Ludacris for something to nail Obama with.

1. "I dont know what that means, but...
...Im saying thats what I think that they would say."

TRANSLATION: "I don't know the meaning of the words coming out of my mouth. I'm just getting paid to say them. Buy my record; watch my movie."

7. What makes Toby Keith believe he knows what "black society" thinks?
That extra chromosome perhaps? Or the mercury from the 'still squeezin's?

19. you guys know that toby is down with the brothers.
he has his fingers on the pulse of black america. if toby says that we think obama acts white than so it must be. although i am part of black america and think no such thing. it kills me that he even has the nerve to say what black people must be thinking. wrong toby. now stfu and have a nice day.
