Racism By a Racist

Let's just say I was talking to the Atlanta City Council about the sad state of the Atlanta public school system and I said, "They were racist because they were a bunch of black people". Would I be branded a racist? Or let's just say I was talking to a group of Asians and I called them Japanese and one of them pointed out that he was Chinese and I said, "You all look alike to me". Would I be a racist? You can bet I would be branded as one. Then why is there no outrage about Representative Corrine Brown's remarks?

She said Republican leaders were "racist" in their policies toward the Caribbean nation, which is almost entirely black, and called the president's representatives "a bunch of white men."

And how did Assistant Secretary of State Roger Noriega respond?

Participants in the meeting said Noriega later told Brown: "As a Mexican-American, I deeply resent being called a racist and branded a white man."

Part of that statement is racist also, since he objected to being "branded a white man". But how did Brown respond?

She said Hispanics and whites "all look alike to me."

Think of the howls of outrage if a white Republican had said that about a group of black people. A white Dimocrat could get away with it, but not a white Republican. If he were a member of Congress there would have been screams for him to resign from Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Julian Bond, Kweisi Mfume, and all the other RWPP's (Race Warlord Poverty Pimps) who look for racism in any statement made by a white Republican.

So, she decided to apologize for her remarks.

I sincerely did not mean to offend Secretary Noriega or anyone in the room. Rather, my comments, as they relate to 'white men,' were aimed at the policies of the Bush administration as they pertain to Haiti, which I do consider to be racist," Brown said in a statement on Thursday.

Try this. I didn't mean to offend the Congressional Black Caucus, but I think they are a bunch of racists because they are all black men.

This kind of bullshit really makes me sick to see the term racism used by people who are themselves racists.

And as for Haiti, don't we need the permission of France, Germany and the United Nations before we can intervene? Otherwise it would be a unilateral operation and we know how much Dimocrats are against us taking any kind of unilateral action.

Corinne Brown's apology is not sufficient. She is a racist and has no business in Congress. her constituents should be embarrassed to have her as a representative, unless, of course, they are just as racist as she is.
