UPI: Black Caucus leader accepts Reid’s apology

"Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., chairwoman of the 42-member caucus, said Reid’s remarks, which referenced then-candidate Barack Obama’s 'light skin' and lack of 'Negro dialect' shouldn’t pull attention from the Democrats’ agenda, The Hill reported."

Lee said last year that Obama's agenda is their agenda. They are not on anyone's agenda.

Gary Graham: It’s A Wonderful… Lie

“'It’s a Wonderful Life' depicts capitalism as a system in which only the jackals can excel…only the crooks prosper…and only evil can flourish. The system is fatally flawed and the only hope we the people have…is to rely on the good nature and charity of our friends and family.

"It’s a complete and total lie."

Bring Back June Cleaver: PCTV Too Real For My Taste

"What is noteworthy, however, is that much of television during that time period was considered politically incorrect but in a strange way was actually more honest. How can that be, you may ask? The fake domestic bliss of 'Father Knows Best,' the racism of 'Amos and Andy,' the sexism of 'I Love Lucy' and so on. Yet there was a lot more credibility in those shows as entertainment than in the supposedly PC programming that probably started with Norman Lear’s 'All in the Family.'”

Sunday Soliloquy: “Better to starve free than be a fat slave”

"In keeping with Senator Harry Reid’s 'unfortunate comment' concerning Barack Obama… I would like to begin my Sunday Soliloquy by saying – tis I, Afrocity, your favorite medium skin toned articulate Negro conservative blogger.

"I am just keeping things real here. After all I do possess a masters degree and that qualifies me as a well spoken Negro. My conservative acquaintances say that to me all of the time you know. Not true. The only time I have been labeled as articulate has been by a liberal who was praising me for doing what all people should do–speaking well. And it is good to know that Harry Reid believes that our president is a well spoken Negro- an articulate boy."

WHITE BOY, PLEASE SERIES: Blagojevich: “I’m Blacker Than Barack Obama”

"Got the White Boy/White Girl, Please and Negro, Please side-eye series. First Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), then former President Bill Clinton, and now former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich have Barry on their brain. I see my former governor is talkin’ crazy. The reasons why he’s blacker than President Obama?: 'I shined shoes', 'I grew up in a five-room apartment', and 'my father had a little laundromat in a black community not far from where we lived'. I’m sure Blago's persecution complex (never mind he got himself into trouble) plays a role here somewhere. So, a black person who has never done menial labor, grew up in a place larger than a matchbox, and is actually of African ancestry (not this observing blacks from afar business) isn’t black? Although Blago (who goes on trial this spring for trying to sell President Obama's old U.S. Senate seat) has now apologized, bookeristas are all over this one."

Then & now, I'm a Negro: The people who used that word gave it majesty

"When black nationalism was on the rise, a hostility toward white people and the Western world came into vogue among young people who were then usually called Negroes. Few people wanted to be called 'black' and some were almost ready to fight about it.

"It was something of an improvement when 'black' became a term that was no longer considered demeaning. It is, in fact, a rather natural development of what was often said about the Negro race which, we were told by our parents and others, was like a flower garden because it 'included every color from blue-black to lily white.'

"Vernon Davis, brother of the trumpeter Miles, once told me he felt integration actually began during segregation in what were public schools reserved for those possessing Negro blood but who could be 'actual blonds or redheads, with white skin and blue or green eyes.'

"In 1959, Mike Wallace and what would today be called 'the white media' discovered the Nation of Islam. The 'Nation' was a black nationalist cult that had woven together science fiction, ethnic nationalism and a bizarre version of Islam that was always dismissed as a perversion of the religion by Middle Eastern Muslims.

"Many black Americans seemed more gullible, or at least loved to hear Malcolm X castigate and threaten the white man while he was the central mouthpiece for the cult. To hear him tell it, the white man was cruising for a bruising and would get his when 'the word was given.' It was never given, of course.

"During the 1960s, when calls for 'black unity' became more harsh, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and all of those who were actually tearing down the cotton curtain of Southern segregation were dismissed by Malcolm X and his many imitators as cowards because they used nonviolence instead of violence and were disdained for supposedly repressing the 'black manhood' that was ready to burst out.

"America was bettered by the nonviolent multiracial civil rights movement, not by those who saw anything less than black-approved self-segregation as a form of selling out. They did not call themselves African-Americans, which is a pretentious term conceived by Jesse Jackson and some black academics.

"Those so willing to pretend that they are Africans and not Americans, or who claim their Americanness almost as an unavoidable burden, are just caught up in yet another meaningless trend that has been swallowed by the country as a whole. Freedom of choice is finally the point, above all else. We are, after all, Americans."

I love the comments:

"First I was *******, then I was a negro, theb I became black, then I became african america and now I am back to being a negro. The whole time white people remained white. This is some sick game the government is playing. I'M BLACK DAMMIT! NOW LEAVE ME ALONE!!!!! and Reid was right, if Obama was any darker or spoke with ANY black dialect or was born of a black woman, he would have been through."

Black Professor: If White Republican Said What Reid Did It Would Be Huge News

"On Monday, a far-left leaning black college professor stated what few in the liberal media dare: if a white Republican said what Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) did about presidential candidate Barack Obama in 2008, it would be huge news.

"Speaking on MSNBC's 'Morning Joe,' Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson elaborated, 'They would be making hay out of it, calling for his resignation. I think we're hypocrites and we're morally weak here.'"

He was motivated by a sense of religious sort of drive. Unfortunately, al-Qaeda has perverted Islam, and has corrupted the concept of Islam, so that he’s [sic] able to attract these individuals. But al-Qaeda has the agenda of destruction and death."

Thomas: "And you’re saying it’s because of religion?"

Brennan: "I’m saying it’s because of an al-Qaeda organization that used the banner of religion in a very perverse and corrupt way."

Thomas: "Why?"

Brennan: "I think this is a – long issue, but al-Qaeda is just determined to carry out attacks here against the homeland."

Thomas: "But you haven’t explained why."

AP STIMULUS WATCH: Unemployment unchanged by projects

"A federal spending surge of more than $20 billion for roads and bridges in President Barack Obama's first stimulus has had no effect on local unemployment rates, raising questions about his argument for billions more to address an 'urgent need to accelerate job growth.'

"An Associated Press analysis of stimulus spending found that it didn't matter if a lot of money was spent on highways or none at all: Local unemployment rates rose and fell regardless. And the stimulus spending only barely helped the beleaguered construction industry, the analysis showed."

earl ofari hutchinson: Reid Spoke the Awful Truth about Obama's Racial Exceptionalism

"Two months before the presidential campaign wrapped, a survey found that one quarter of whites held negative views of blacks that were laced with the standard stereotypes. The respondents said that blacks use race as a crutch, are not as industrious as whites, they opposed interracial marriage, and are terrified of black crime (Obama mildly chided his white grandmother in his so-called race speech in March 2008 for saying she feared black men). Yet nearly a quarter of them claimed they'd vote for Obama. In every poll taken from the instant he declared his candidacy the overwhelming majority of whites were adamant that race had absolutely nothing to do with whether they'd vote for him or not. The difference was not just his lighter coloring, but his words, demeanor and political approach. His race neutral campaign was widely perceived as a soothing departure from the race baiting antics of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. But others liked him because of, and were plainly fascinated by his racially exotic background. It supposedly didn't fit that of the typical African American. This was Reid's point."

GOP: Response to Reid remark shows double standard

"GOP Chairman Michael Steele, in appearances on two Sunday news programs, compared Reid’s predicament with the circumstances that led Senate Republican leader Trent Lott to step down from that post in 2002. Lott had spoken favorably of the 1948 segregationist presidential campaign of Strom Thurmond, and in spite of apologies for those remarks at Thurmond’s 100th birthday, Lott was forced out as leader.

"'There is this standard where the Democrats feel that they can say these things and they can apologize when it comes from the mouths of their own. But if it comes from anyone else, it’s racism,' said Steele, who is black. 'It’s either racist or it’s not. And it’s inappropriate, absolutely.'

"Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said in a statement that Reid should step down, calling his comments 'embarrassing and racially insensitive.'

"'It’s difficult to see this situation as anything other than a clear double standard on the part of Senate Democrats and others,' Cornyn said.

"Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein of California and Jack Reed of Rhode Island joined other Democrats in saying Reid’s apology and Obama’s statement were enough. They also rejected comparisons to the Lott episode.

(That is a crock -- Robert)

"I think that’s a totally different context. Harry Reid made a misstatement,' Reed said. 'He owned up to it. He apologized. I think he is mortified by the statement he’s made. And I don’t think he should step down.'"
