I just want to point out that this is totally not racist:
A Fox News guest said that “you might want to say” President Obama looks like “a skinny, ghetto crackhead.”
Brent Bozell, of the conservative Media Research Center, appeared on Fox Thursday night, where guest host Mark Steyn showed a clip of MSNBC’s Chris Matthews saying that Newt Gingrich “looks like a car bomber.”
Steyn said that aside from anything else, Newt doesn’t even look like a car bomber, but a “big, cuddly, slightly older Winnie the Poo.”
“How long do you think Sean Hannity’s show would last if four times in one sentence, he made a comment about, say, the President of the United States, and said that he looked like a skinny, ghetto crackhead?” Bozell wondered. “Which, by the way, you might want to say that Barack Obama does.”
If you think that Bozell’s comment was racist, then you’re almost certainly a racist. I mean, the fact that Bozell couldn’t think of any comparison for Obama other than “skinny, ghetto crackhead” obviously doesn’t reveal that he has any deeper attitudes about the position of African-Americans in the United States.
