Question re: McKinney’s “incident.”

Do opinions about Congresswoman McKinney’s “incident” fall along racial lines? I don’t think so, but perhaps I’m missing something.

In support of my thinking look at Cynthia Tucker’s column yesterday and also Congressman John Lewis’ silence (in fact the entire Congressional Black Caucus has been quite). On the flip side, there were a whole lot of folks at McKinney’s two press conferences.

    At the end of the day it’s pretty simple.

    She punched a cop.

    You just don’t do that. I don’t care if your getting busted for a DUI, or forgot your pin. You don’t punch cops. It has nothing to do with race.

    I agree, but I also think OJ is guilty and few Blacks would agree with me. That’s what I’m asking: Do African-Americans think Cynthia was wrong?

    Another example: I’m sure Barry Bonds took steroids, but the “2 Live Stews” on 790 The Zone think it’s a racial witchhunt.

    By no means does it fall on racial lines. She would be a good legislator if she could get that enormous chip off her shoulder. Every decent thing she does is always offset by her ridiculously abrasive behavior (and don’t even get me started on her father).

    If you can’t follow the rules, you don’t need to be one of the ones making them for the rest of us.

    And my liberal friends can kiss my behind if they don’t want to admit that THAT is the honest to goodness truth.

    On the other hand, the absolute hypocrisy of the Republican party trying to tie her down with ethics charges……hahahahahahaha!!!!!

    Does any Republican in DC even know what the word ‘ethics’ means? Can they use it in a sentence, because they sure don’t use them in real life.

    Bill, did you actually read what I said? No. I said and I quote: “She would be a good legislator if she could get that enormous chip off her shoulder.
