How the FUCK could a black man have said that?
"Nancy Pelosi will be in the back of the bus."

Say fucking WHAT? This is obviously a guy who's way too young to remember.

(Not that I presume to speak for black Americans, but this strikes me as being completely off the rails; much, much worse than what it makes me feel like (homicidal) when I hear someone use the term "Indian Giver.")

And I'm not even very sensitive to stuff like that.

But "the back of the bus?" That asshole should just go ahead and admit he dislikes black people every bit as much as any white Republican does.

3. Michael Steele isn't black...
He's a Republican-American first and foremost.

20. I thought you were going to say he looks suspiciously like a white guy in make up.


if so, he should just stop it. He hasn't won over any black folks that I've ever heard of.

or maybe his job is to just make the few Republicans who feel guilty about their race-baiting feel a little better.

4. He's not too young
He is however, an insensitive republican clod who is willing to say provocative things in order to remain relevant.

5. Michael wants his white buddies to pretend with him, so he talks their lingo
He thinks it makes them think he's cool.. they think he's a fool they are stuck with for a few more months.

6. Steele isn't 'way too young'; he knew exactly what he was saying.
He's quite the little gop pig imo, I don't care what color he is.

7. These are the same people who...
A repug lady in my town declared at a meeting that she had looked in all the stores and couldn't find powered eggs anywhere because the
welfare mothers had them all. I suggested she take a carton of fresh eggs over to a welfare mothers house for a trade.

The women just looked at me like she'd just turned her brain totally to off.

22. Why would she WANT powdered eggs? Those things are revolting...though
Edited on Mon Aug-09-10 05:48 PM by Redstone
I guess she only made the comment because it gave her a chance to follow it with a racist remark.

Edited on Mon Aug-09-10 06:01 PM by Fire1
discrimination is discrimination in any form. HOWEVER, in this instance the OP is referring SPECIFICALLY, about a RACIST remark. Get it together and let's stay on the same damned page!

10. How can a black man
say he's against gay marriage (i.e. against EQUAL rights for all people)?
:shrug:

Boogles the mind, and he uses religion as an excuse. :puke: :mad:

Thank you, Mr. President. :eyes:

16. Christ, yes, you'd think he'd understand. But I suspect he did not
grow up in a "typical" Black American experience. Something tells me he's a child of privilege, just one with dark skin.

18. That's no excuse.
Blacks fought for equal rights for so long. The fight goes on. Understandably.
Because of that, it doesn't make sense to me when other minority groups want to deny other groups equal rights. Makes me angry, and sad.

11. Did you see him showing how he wears his baseball cap backward?
Trying so hard to be hip, "because that's how we roll". I actually experience physical pain at some of the things he says and does.

17. The Chairman of one of two major political parties in the US, and
he wears a baseball cap backward. In public.

How much lower can you get? Good point, and thank you for posting it.

13. There is a lot of self-loathing in many black Republicans.
He is a classic case.

Steele is really all about his own self-promotion, his only interest in life. He says whatever he thinks will get him ahead.

He is Mike Tyson's former brother-in-law. Steele has about as much sense.

15. I don't think Steele understands half of what he says. Most of it is pure nonsense, like
what he said about Afghanistan.

26. He said that the U.S. never actively enganged war in Afghanistan until Obama.
Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele suggested at a Connecticut fundraiser that Afghanistan is "a war of Obama's choosing" despite the fact that it began years before the president took office.

As criticism of his comments grew Friday, Steele issued a statement saying that he supported the U.S. troops, but did not address his factual mistake.

Steele also said of U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan: "This is not something the United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in."http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20009569-503544....

28. Michael Steele said this?
Anyone have a link? Or better yet, a video of this?

That easily would earn him a Dumbass of the Week award!
