Is this the "Obama made me racist" excuse?

 

I think we have a winner.

Artiles will never be viewed the same again by his colleagues............might as well move on. He seems a good fit for donalds circus.

Wow, did you have to blow off the dust when you picked that response off the shelf?

He's kind of right with the "2 sets of rules" thing. The Grand Wizard had his gaff in 2001, 16 years ago. Of course the daggers were out for Jeff Sessions "racist joke" told 30 years ago. The only difference was the R or D after their name. It's a fair statement. Both sides will say "that was different".

The difference is some people have evolved while others have not. Some still believe that there is superiority in certain races.

I stand corrected. Only one side will say it's different. :P

I think we can safely blame Obama for the racial hatred in this country.

In all fairness, the racism has always been there, but 8 years of Obama helped to cement it, nurture it...then when Trump came along, all the racists felt safe to finally come out of the closet. They had their boy in the WH covering their backs.

Can you please cite the top 100 racist incidents in the last 90 days?  I seem to have missed out on the outburst of racism since the Messiah left office after eight years of you all complaining that racism was worse than ever because we had a black president,

Sen. Frank Artiles resigned from the Florida Legislature on Friday, consumed by a scandal that erupted three days earlier over a diatribe of insults the Miami Republican unleashed against two lawmakers at a Tallahassee bar.

In a letter to Senate President Joe Negron, Artiles said he was stepping down for the sake of his family and the institution of the Senate, whose work ground to a near halt this week as Republican leaders grappled with Artiles’ political future.

Good riddance. Now a new Republican candidate will likely prevent the Dems from flipping that seat.

He did the best thing by resigning but some think that death is a justified result of calling someone a racial slur.

Yeah a poster here said that when the NJ cop shot that guy on I-97 a few years ago who called him a racial slur.   The poster claimed it was a justified kill because he called the black cop the n-word.

Trump Gives A Shout Out To Luciano Pavarotti, His 'Great Friend'

The legendary Italian opera singer Luciano Pavarotti passed away in 2007. Everybody in Italy knows this except Trump.
By the way, if he was so close with Luciano, why did his widow and his three daughters tell him to stop playing her late husband's most famous aria?
