Ahh, the tolerant left

Why is it that when Democrats call an African-American Republican and "Uncle Tom" and plet him with Oreos it's not racism?

Black Democratic leaders in Maryland say that racially tinged attacks against Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele in his bid for the U.S. Senate are fair because he is a conservative Republican.

Such attacks against the first black man to win a statewide election in Maryland include pelting him with Oreo cookies during a campaign appearance, calling him an "Uncle Tom" and depicting him as a black-faced minstrel on a liberal Web log. (Source: Washington Times, Nov. 2, 2005)

I want some of my leftist readers to chime in.

I'd like to condemn this type of activity. Steele is full of shit so they should be throwing feces at him, not Oreos...

Democrats, please stop doing this, leave racism to the Republicans.

2% of African Americans approve of the job that Bush is doing.

Steele is in the 2%. That 98% of African Americans are against him. Now it wouldn't be an issue if theGOP weren't pushing him to the forefront because of their pitiful support from African Americans in general. So race is an issue. The issue in relation to politics is that his color is only skin deep and on the inside he is like most conservative republicans, white.

So, he's black on the outside and white on the inside. Oreo. Hand me a bag.

You elitist liberals can't stand to see African Americans that are conservative...Clarence Thomas, Condi, Rice, Michael Steele, JC Watts...

So, being "black" means hating Bush and voting with the Dems? I thought you liberals were against stereo types. Now I see that you are, only when it helps win elections and paint Republicans as racists.

You disgust me...

Hold your food down a few minutes.
I'm am black- not an elitist. The numbers election after election speak for themselves. The current Bush approval rating from blacks speak for themselves. 2% is something to be very very concerned about. Nixon had higher approvals from blacks.

Now, unless you beleive that all blacks are stupid and beleive lies- you've got to honestly ask yourself, what is the Party doing that turns off so many from one group- one big, diverse thinking group.

My little tongue in cheek Oreo line was out of place and I can be man enough to admit and call the disorder less than desirable.

What can you say about the Republicans lack of support?

These guys you name are black, but the run against what 90% plus of the American blacks support.

Who is out of the mainstrean with Black Americans?

(By the way, all of those you named support Affirmative Action- which I knwo you don't. So there is still something about being black).
