Barney Frank Tells Black Degree Recipient He Hopes "No One Will Shoot At You" For Wearing A "Hoodie"
Real Clear Politics ^

Posted on 05/28/2012 8:45:16 AM PDT by Evil Slayer

Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) was one of several speakers at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth undergraduate commencement that took place this Sunday. Frank was also one of two people that received the Chancellor's Distinguished Service Medal at the event.

However, Congressman Frank made a controversial comment about Hubie Jones, a black recipient of an honorary doctorate, that elicited an audible gasp from the audience.

In reference to the Trayvon Martin case, Frank said "you now got a hoodie you can wear and no one will shoot at you." After the audience reacted, Frank said, "I think you'll feel, I hope, pretty protected by that."

"Finally, I do want to acknowledge a man who has played a major role in diminishing inequality in Massachusetts and other spheres, and that's Hubie Jones," Barney Frank said.

"One of the great men that I've worked with Hubie for many years and I'm particularly pleased that Hubie got an honorary degree today. You know, when you get an honorary degree they give you one of these and Hubie, I think you now got a hoodie you can wear and no one will shoot at you. So, I think you'll feel, I hope, pretty protected by that," Frank said.

That has got to be the ultimate in race bating I have ever heard.

There was an “audible gasp” from the audience? You mean to tell me there are people in this world who can understand this fool when he speaks?

Since a black male is 40 times more likely to assault a white person(even higher if it’s a gay male), why didn’t Frank ask the black male if he was going to assault him for being a white, male homosexual??

more money from the banks and financial industry

for one, check out how Fidelity bankrolls this old twinkie with fund raisers. Once I did, I pulled all my money out, after almost 30 years of investing in Fidelity Funds.

There is so many truthes in the lessons of the old fairy tales. Reaction to Bwany Fwanks is parallel to The Emperor's New Clothes.

The fairy tale of Frank's greatness, IQ, humanity, etc. has been so oft repeated that this evil fraud is paraded in the highest levels of "society" as a great man.

The gasps came from those in the audience who realized he was naked--and Oh! what an awful sight!.

If anyone does shoot at the black graduate for wearing a hoodie, it will be a black man who does it — that should be the retort to this disgusting Barney Frank faux witticism.

Way to turn someone’s personal moment into your OWN agenda driven purpose. Liberals can turn any pleasant moment which is about someone else into a foul and upsetting moment which is somehow about them or their politics. They are walking stink.I bet most Liberals would nt even understand the problem with this.

I think by doing the first you would have accomplished the second...or were you thinking of kicking him in the a$$?

Leave it to Bawny to equate a street thug with an honors recipient based on skin color.

More than likely and given his track record as Gov., Mittens shares Barwney’s world view. Romney would be more likely to fear anyone who associates with you, Mr. Domestic Terrorist conservative Tea Party person.

And yet Zim is supposed to get a “fair trial’ with all these prominent implied guilty comments?

Keep talkin, Punks. The more you say the more the defense attorneys are rubbing their hands with glee. Even a racist jury were to find him “guilty” it would get reversed on appeal. Dr. Sam Sheppard, anyone?

Amazing how a long-time pol can have such a tin ear when it comes to figuring out what is and isn’t appropriate to say in public. He doesn’t seem to have much of an appreciation for what to do and what not to do in private, either. Host a gay prostitution ring out of his townhouse, what could be wrong with that, anyway?

Guess that’s what a lack of effective competition year after year can do to a guy - it seems to have turned him into a fat, vulgar, out of touch, effeminate slob.

What’s that, you say? You mean that he has always been a fat, vulgar, out of touch, effeminate slob? Have the voters in his district always been that foolish? Well, guess that theory goes down the drain, huh...

Not many people, perhaps none, have been shot for wearing a hoodie, but a lot of people have been shot by people wearing hoodies.
