  •  I didn't say he was A racist, I said the comment (0+ / 0-)

    was. I don't know the guy personally, do you? I judge someone based off of what they say and their actions.

    Look at any speech by either Obama or Gingrich, listen to the talking heads after the speech and notice which comments they pull out of it. It could be completely the opposite of what either man meant to say, but WE the people can perceive it differently. AND that's what matters, that's what gets people commenting on what was said.
    (See yesterday's Appeasement Speech by Mitt and you'll see what I mean)

    "There are real problems in this country that need to be solved. Super-secret-quadruple-hyper-crypto-racism isn't one of them."

    It's not a "secret"; Newt's intentions were plain & clear. Racism is still a huge problem that doesn't just go away when you have economic downturn. Sad to see that you don't care, but I, as an African American Woman do.

    •  Racism is still a problem. (0+ / 0-)

      The bad news is that it probably always will be. The good news is that this is not racism, this is just people's extremely hyperactive imaginations hard at work.
