Reaction to the Jan Brewer encounter is still bubbling, with some black commentators now suggesting the image of the Arizona governor wagging her finger at the President of the United States has touched a nerve in the African American community.
On MSNBC Thursday, Al Sharpton posited that Brewer's treatment of President Obama was another example of disrespect in a list of many for the nation's first black president. His guest, Sirius XM host Joe Madison, said such incidents show that there are people "who cannot stand the fact that this is an African-American who is now one of the most powerful individuals on the planet," Mediaite reported.
An NAACP official went a few steps further in an interview with POLITICO Friday, saying the tiff played on age-old and discriminatory stereotypes of whites being superior to blacks. Hilary O. Shelton, senior vice president for advocacy and policy at the NAACP, said he was particularly disturbed by Brewer telling reporters afterward that she "felt a bit threatened if you will, in the attitude that he had."
"What were you afraid he would do, steal your purse?" Shelton said.

It is the height of racism for you evil Freepers to disrespect our Black President ... so you better shut your damn pie holes and not comment any more about the Head Moron on this or any other thread.
Same as the first.
Thanks Jan, now no Black will vote Republican........ /S
Is Al “Not-so” committed to resist? He Much!
... be committed.
the few, the commies, really not black representation.
This is the media doing the nerve touching.
No wonder why he doesn’t do press conferences.
Geez. These race hustlers are a one hit broken record. Besides, the racism charge is soooo 2009.
Ground control to brother sharpton, Obama is not black, he’s half white, half black, and the race is called bi-racial.
“Joe Madison said such incidents show that there are people “who cannot stand the fact that this is an African-American who is now one of the most powerful individuals on the planet.”
Then why can’t he get anything done? He can barely read.
Y A W N zzzzzzzzzzzzz
Oh no! Jan Brewer will lose the black vote in Arizona!
(Per the census: Arizona has a total black population of 4.1%)
So stupid. What era is he from?
What a bunch of utter garbage.
The greasy headed one should be glad the governor was not dragging a rope or maybe carrying a bull whip.
Then there was also no cross. We all know how it ended for the real Messiah
Misleading, dishonest, title!!!
Jan Brewer tarmac tiff touches a nerve in WHITE community, some commentators......”
Obama is half-white. I refuse to surrender my white President to the NAACP!
Obama is a low-down, jack ass, jerk, cracker....
The race baiters are out in force on this one. Personally, I’m sick to death of being called a racist because I so intensely dislike 0bama. It has NOTHING to do with his (bi) race. It has EVERYTHING to do with his hatred of the American dream, the Constitution, and the history that has made this the most successful free society in the human record.
And, the folks like Sharpton, Jackson-Lee, and their ilk can take a hike, preferably in deep bruin-infested woodlands.
Obama’a a jackass! And if the “black community” has a problem with me saying that, well, then the “black community” is populated by a bunch of jackasses, too. And that includes Al “Cocaine-Dealer” Sharpton and Jesse “Pimp-Daddy” Jackson.
Obama is a stupid, arrogant, creepy thug in any color. Jan Brewer was simply reacting out of disgust like any reasonable adult would.
I see the race pimps have gotten around to spinning this incident into faux racism.
