Seriously.

Comparing the first black President to Ike Turner?

Yeah, no racism or blind hatred going on there.

I hope all the people who support this kind of attack take their racist, hateful asses out of the Democratic party. Addition by subtraction.

14. What is with you and race?
The context was that a man beat his wife. All of us are some color and he was going to have to choose a well known abuser. I think being compared to Gibson would have been much more insulting. Ike was just a well known abuser.

2. How is that racist?
Ike was a wife beater, not a racist

8. Don't worry -- lots of DUers think race is just a distraction
from class issues so they will see racism in nothing.
