Well this story sure got swept under the rug fast.
Thanks for the whataboutism. We just dont see enough of those here. And what you are saying is that it is ok now for politicians to crack racist jokes??? When did that start?
I bet microwaves are too slow for you???
Give it time, if you knew how to google instead of having alerts from rabid right reposts you'd see the story never went under the rug, but is just starting. Does smell a bit when it comes from an outside party, who is a disgruntled failed GOP candidate desperate for dirt. As far as racist comments go it appears no one at the Boy Scout meeting was offended and an Arizonian having a Hispanic nickname without reference to derogatory features like lazy or dirty seems a reach.
I wonder if Mr. Sanchez is being racist claiming the Boy Scout Group was all white... eace
So desperate individuals try and claim a raison is a watermelon... :doh
Nicknaming your brother from Arizona a Hispanic name isn't racist. Saying he is a dirty criminal, drug runner, rapist and giving him a Hispanic is racist. Claiming a Hispanic judge would rule against someone is racist. Saying phrases long used by racists- such as 'go back to where you came from'- is racist. Using Aunt Jemima or Uncle Tom when attacking blacks who don't agree with you is racist and I don't like it when anyone does that.
However the Rodrigo comment may not have been in the best of taste- but it wasn't racist.... eace
What exactly was racist about the joke between two brothers? It is interesting what some make things about race. I say get over it and work on solutions to real problems.
Kelly seems to feel that way about Hispanics. Otherwise why would he rename is brother RodrigoOnly if you believe Blacks fall somewhere between Orangutan and Howler Monkey. I don't.
Kelly apologized because it was politically expedient to do so.
He apologized almost 3 days ago now and its still not a story yet. Perhaps I should have waited another three days, that way you could claim it was old news.
It was racist. Thats why Kelly apologized. Try and keep up.
Maybe you were just born yesterday, but a joke between two brothers can be a racist joke. It was a racist joke and we know this because Kelly acknowledged it. Maybe this explains why there is so much systemic racism in liberal cities. You libs dont know what racism really is.
