The dreaded R word?
Or is it just plain stupidity?
Now, with Mrs. Kerry having been born in Mozambique, she definitely has a point (as I’ve said before), but let’s be real here. How many "African Americans" will see it that way? And is this really the time for this? (To be fair, the Mrs. asserted her proper claim on African American identity long before it was all the rage, so I'll cut her some slack.)
As for the senator, however, can he make any more tin-eared comments? Oh, I guess he can.
Why not go all the way, dude, and let your inner "blackness" show? How about getting tricked-out (pun intended) like Snoop Dogg in the new Starsky and Hutch and tick off every black person from the right of me to the left of Maxine Waters? You can do it. I'm counting on you...
