Barack the magic Negro

Chip Saltsman, a candidate for chairman of the Republican National Committee, sent committee members this month a holiday music CD that included "Barack the Magic Negro," a parody song first aired in 2007 by national talk show bigot Rush Limbaugh.

So, this is a test. It is a test of our sense of humor. Is this funny? Is it parody? Satire? Or just another form of racism?

Here it is for you to judge: Barack the magic Negro

You know what I think. This is ignorant racism no matter how much you try to deny it.

Sigh...more of the same from the "Grand" Old Fear & Loathing Party. Republicans are not doing themselves any favors lately, except maybe ingratiating with cortling, double-speak bigots like Limbaugh, hopefully a dying breed. And Democratic congressmen and women had better get on the stick and get some beneficial legislation passed, or any garnered "favor" will be so much discarded Christmas wrapping. I'm looking hopefully (wishfully?) for some real change from our leaders of both parties for the first time. There's a slim chance to turn the big ship around and it's gonna take constant peer and voter pressure to do it. So far, Democrats have been draggin' ass with their congressional clout.

Pure stupidity.

Don't hold your breath on "change" though.

As one who went from 'two,four,six,eight. we ain't gonna intergrate' I have done a complete turnaround over the years.That being said,there are many black people who hang on to the previous times when
there were plenty of racist to go around.
The song you so violently oppose,was initiated by a comment referring to a statement about Barack Obama by none other than one the most prejudiced humans ever,Al Sharpton.
But don't worry,if the Dems pass the most prejudiced legislation of alleged fairness ever,all the conservative people will be off talk radio,because they can't find anyone the public will listen to in their own party. Should tell them something,but they'll overlook it.

entirely unoriginal garbage that could only be conjured by a racist in denial. The kind of guy that probably begins racist comments with, "I'm not a racist but..."

Satire is smart and ironic. This stuff couldn't make a morning drive DJ's show in Topeka. It's not satire.
