The race issue has been further complicated by Obama being President, it can work both ways, either with people being more sensitive to what is reported as racism or in this case more of a muted responce.
It will eventually explode, and more likely than not over something that really isnt that much of an extreme case, all really depends how the MSM report it.
The Rev. Al Sharpton on Monday said he was disturbed by condescending remarks reportedly made by former President Bill Clinton about Barack Obama during the 2008 campaign.
Sharpton was referring to a passage in the new book, "Game Change," which recounts the conversation Clinton had with the late Sen. Ted Kennedy when he was trying to convince the liberal lion of the Senate to endorse his wife for president.
"A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee," Clinton told Kennedy, according to the book -- a comment that angered Kennedy, who later endorsed Obama.
Sharpton, speaking on Fox News, defended Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid over a passage in the book in which he said Obama doesn't have a "Negro dialect" unless he wants one. But the reverend would not give Clinton such a pass for his remark.
"I think that's far more disturbing because this is someone seeking to stop Mr. Obama's campaign and making a direct reference -- I don't know the context in which he said it -- but that is far more disturbing to me than even the comments that were made by Mr. Reid," Sharpton said.
It was common in the 19th century, and reflected the skepticism of white people. Indians recruited for scouting were regarded as possible renegades until they had "proven themselves" many times over. When that happened, he was an "honest injun" as opposed to-- well, the rest of em.

What is hysterical is another faux outrage from Republicans blaming someone else for racism.
Where was Fox Noise and you guys when Tea Baggers where holding up signs with a bone through Obama's nose?
Republicans complaining about racism is tant amount to O.J. Simpson complaining about Charlie Sheen putting a knife to his wife's throat.
All the evidence you need is right here in this thread...honest injen is not racist? HA! tell that to a native American.

Actually most of the complaining is about the flaming double standard that exists within the left. The Undeniable double standard!
