    his history, where's he's from or what's in his hear.

    I know it could be considered a racist thing to call a black person "boy". I think it depends on the context, connotation inflection etc...

    growing up in Texas, have referred to people I disagree with in a similar fashion. By and large these people (yes, these people) have been white.  "So and so has his "boy" in city hall."
    or maybe, "My neighbor will never get in trouble for smoking weed, Sheriff Walker is his boy."

    And I don't think this is a stretch. I think sometimes people try and look for things that simply aren't there.  Go after the guy for his bad policies, not for a passing comment that may OR may not have been racially motivated because the president is ONLY half White.

    •  = all black, as i'm sure you know being from texas (0+ / 0-)
      the president is ONLY half White.
      i'll give you the infinitesimal chance that calling obama "boy" was a mere accident...however, chance is a mathematical thing, isn't it? who has the math on their side?
