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.
They seem to expect race based approval from everyone and we are expected to ignore actions and proposals.
After everything Obama has done to Arizona......Fast and Furious, U.S. federal agents killed by Holder and Obama’s gun running scheme to undermine the second amendment.....refusal to enforse federal immigration laws, and harassing Arizona elected officials, including Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who try to do so.....falsely accusing the TEA Party and Sarah Palin of causing the January 2011 Tucson shooting.....turning the memorial for the Tucson shooting victims into a campaign event.....these black radicals have their NERVE complaining about Gov. Jan Brewer!
Im sorry but I am totally burned out with the black thing.. Aint my fault God made them black so getoutamyface and learn to respect yourself for what God gave you.....
Apropos of nothing concealed carry is a wonderful thing. Thanks Zakeet.
“What were you afraid he would do, steal your purse?” Shelton said.
He’s already stolen our children’s and grandchildren’s futures. Why would he bother with a purse?
Black racist morons.
Didn’t Obama walk up and start scolding her? Are American citizens supposed to kneel in fear like he’s a monarch? “F” him.
The thin skinned boy president better be prepared for some Joe the plumber moments in this upcoming campaign.
Not only that, hussein is not a black American, African American or any other type of American. He has no black roots in the USA. He is a poser and a racist who will not admit he is white.
Thanks Jan Brewer these Blacks are with you! Now we can count on a portion of the black vote
Congress: Arrest Mr. Obama http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5qxPKQJh-g&feature=related
Says the anti-Semite. Sharpton is the consummate racist. Tawanna Bradley & Crown Heights place this thug right at the head of the line, along with Jesse Jackboots and our ‘esteemed’ AG. Succinctly put, Sharpton is nothing more than a race thug.
Maybe not, but we have good reason to believe that he'll pick our pockets.
That's the way it looks to me.
EVERYTHING about this guy is PHONY!
Looks like skin color over rides sex. I remember Rick Lazio was considered threatening when he handed Hillary Clinton a piece of paper. I know from personal experience that some blacks get very touchy when they think a white woman has dissed a black man.
"Jan Brewer does not care about half-white people!"
The only people who are obsessed about race are those who filter their own lives through a prism that accentuates victim hood. Brewer’s problem is not about Obama’s race but his policies. I realize there is racism out there but it is not limited to the white community. In my lifetime it has diminished to the point of being more embarrassment than barrier. The African American community in this country will never completely move forward until they start looking in that direction instead of one hundred years in the past and stop following “leaders” who are more interested in keeping conflict alive for personal reasons than burying it
He is looting the born and unborn’s piggy banks, does that count. Ooh, I said looting. Is that racist?
Resist We Much!
As a matter of fact, yes.
Not personally, of course -- he will employ the Congress, the Senate, the tax code, and the IRS.
But yes, in answer to your question.

On CNS website they had a link yesterday going to video that suggested she warmly greeted him then he basically started in on her about her book.
Michelle Malkin has a great commentary on how it was basically (paraphrasing) “his Toddlers and Tiara’s meltdown caught on camera” (thank you Ms. Malkin for describing it so well lol)
He’s acted just as rude to other governors (Perry and Jindal)
Heavens!~ don’t you dare disagree with Obama, he is really thin-skinned, as are his followers. Ms Malkin again = it’s not the color of his skin that’s the problem but how thin it is.
We do not have a black president. We do not have an African-American president. We have nothing of the kind. How many years did he spend in an urban public school, taught by people who thought him incapable of learning, and therefore making his classes and curriculum soft? How many times did he sleep in an apartment overrun by roaches or perhaps rodents? OTOH, how many times did he celebrate family and the black community when he was a boy living in Hawaii or Indonesia, or that notable ghetto in Washington state? He knows the American black experience like Mitt does; he visits it in his motorcade.
Oh, he’s bi, all right.
GEEZ do they see everything in terms of race? So let me get this straight Obama is allowed to disrespect everyone but don’t you dare treat him the same way back.Hint to them....failure does not have a race.
Arguing with a partially black person is haaate speech.
“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.”
I’m sorry but that’s one of the single most racist statements I’ve ever read in my life. This Shelton clown is such a hardcore racist, he can’t even recognize racism anymore.
Sharoton that race bait expert should shut the hell up and crawl under a rock. He makes me sick.
Liberals are the only people who care that Obama is black. The president’s detractors dislike him because he’s a terrible president. Black has nothing to do with it.
Oh yeah, I know a black woman who truly IS irritated at Jan. I felt like saying to her “Real Presidential of TOTUS to stomp off while she was speaking.”
Bottom line, I know the Hussein urban base will take any and every challenge to their hero as a racist attack. Jan’s action just happened to be the one.
The cult apparently believes Hussein is allowed to challenge the words and thoughts of others, and those under attack from him must not reply. Well piss on that notion. Hussein is not a king.
