While we applaud Santorum for the work he did with a few HBCUs across the country, this doesn’t excuse his comments from Monday. There was no slip of the tongue, as he would love us to believe. While Santorum does pause (as seen in the video below) before he uses the word “black,” he hasn’t explained what he meant to say instead. And given his history of incendiary comments, why should we not believe that Santorum meant what he said?
This just smells of another GOP candidate who has seen his presidential hopes jump from dead in the water to alive trying to do damage control. But don’t worry about it, Rick: The majority of our community’s vote will go to the guy in office, not someone with a track record of offending gays, blacks, women and Latinos.
And there ya have it folks. No matter what Santorum could say or do; “them people” are gonna vote for Obama.
Now. Who is being racist here?
Why is it racist to say you don’t want to give black people other peoples’ money? I would hope Rick would also not want to give white people other people’s money, but maybe in PA where he is from, it is mostly black people screaming for their handouts. I don’t know. I do know in most of the country, there are at least as many white people screaming for their handouts as there are black people.
The remarks brought criticism from NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous, who called them "outrageous."
You can do that for a while and then you wake up and find out you are deaf as a doorknob!
These DEAF people imagine they heard "black", and then take offense when the rest of us who can actually hear correctly tell them "black" isn't in there!~
Well take this DEAF people ~ black isn't in there ~ get your hearing tested ~ quit faking it. WE KNOW!!!!!
