Rewind to June 13, 2007. On this blog, Andre Walker reacted to the following statement from Senator John Douglas about the Genarlow Wilson Case:
“…if it had been my daughter, he [Genarlow Wilson] wouldn’t have made it to jail. Bigger problems would have awaited other than the judge and jury. But almost certainly the girls didn’t have fathers at home to guide them in their teen years. Another casualty of the welfare system.”
Andre said that the Senator’s comment had to have been “one of the most racist and condescending comments that I have ever seen from a politician” because he assumed that because the girls were black that they had to have been on welfare.
Well now, almost a year later, Andre now says that comparing the looks of an African American candidate for President to a monkey and putting it on a t-shirt and selling it is somehow not racist and that those of us who think it is and are offended are “pansies” – a derogatory term used against gay people.
Wow, Andre, thank goodness your collegues rejected your attempt to be voting delegate at the convention. Maybe in your world comparing the looks of an African American to a monkey is not racist, but fortunately even Rush Limbaugh acknowledges it is racist.
