Obama under attack for using the N-word

HT_Obama_ml_150622_16x9_992

 

Obama the N-word had no right to say.

No matter the context in which it did lay.

So the bigots all right

HaveĀ  jumped on the sound bite

Though they might say the word every day.

  • Yes, another fine example of Presidential eloquence.

    So by bigots on the right do you mean Marc Morial, President and CEO of the National Urban League that lamented the use or those righty media outlets CNN NBC, ABC, CBS and Politico that bleeped out or hid the word?

  • In reply to 4zen:

    And appears some writer from Quark In The Road had enough class not to use it either.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    Thanks, 4zen, as always, for reading and for your insightful remarks. No, I wasn't referring to those who for one reason or another thought the word was inappropriate. But I'm sure you are aware that the Right seems to have a monopoly on racial prejudice; voter suppression and birther attacks on Obama being two manifestations of it.

    And thank you kind sir for your platform, but Republican's only make up 26% of electorate, I promise you there is a silent mass that know they cannot touch this issue without their lives becoming scorched earth.

  • I'm going to dare to differ here. I think it was eloquent, 4zen, for the president to use the word he meant to use. I don't care to use it myself, but he used it to get his point across and drive the discussion, which we as a country need to have.

    Thanks,Margaret. I couldn't have said it better.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    You're welcome.

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    No need to dare Margaret, a different opinion is not a threat to me nor will I call you a bigot for having one.

    Far as driving the discussion, in my opinion there is no conversation. It's either as the President/Progressive's say it is or you are a bigot.

  • As Kass just pointed out, Cornel West gets the Greek curse for using "N-word" on Obama. That basically gets down to the debate from John Elroy Sanford to Rap is C-r-a-p on whether Ns can use it.

    Didn't take long for that to come full circle, an ugly glare creates a long shadow.
