There was nothing wrong with what he said, it was truthful and in no form derogatory.

However, we also have to think about what would have happened if a Republican had said it. I believe if the shoe was on the other foot then the Dem's would be making statements condeming what he said and label what he said as racist. They really can't bring attention to it because it's bad plubicity for the Dem party and they can't afford that right now. They have been pushing party unity for the past few days and this would be determental to that message.

The Republican party could use it to show that the Dems are still at each others throat. I don't think they will because frankley they have enough ammo for that arguement and it would be dangerous ground for them to tread on. So this will be more then likely swept under the rug, not because it wasn't racist. It will be swept under the rug because bringing attention to it wouldn't help either party.

LOL this is ridiculous he said black... boy because he was talking about Obama when he was younger when he was a boy he meant it like this black boy came from such harsh conditions and now he has been nominated for president. The way your thread title says it it you make it seem like he came on TV and was like who let that black boy run for pres?

Are you seeking attention or points? because anyone who hears this will know he wasnt being racist or negative!
