Will you yield the floor to the racist Republican from Georgia?

Speaking to reporters Thursday, Rep. Lynn Westmoreland of Grantville, Ga., described the Obamas as members of an "elitist-class ... that thinks that they're uppity," according to The Hill, a Capitol Hill newspaper.

Asked if he intended to use the word, he said, "Yeah, uppity."


No sirreee, we caint let dem uppity Negroes win, Ma... fetch me m' shotgun and get a rope ready!

And to think at one point in time that would have been a Democrat saying these stupid comments, probably worse.

Yes, and at one point in time, we all crawled out of the primordial ooze.

Is that how it happened.:)

And as all politicians love pointing out (about the other guy), a bit of that ooze tends to stick, and we brought it with us.

Typical stupidity. Uppity does not and never has been a racial remark.

Secondly, for the poster of the thread, Barrack is Indonesian and White and probably has never seen the South so why would he care? Even our moronic media cannot seem to figure out he is not African-American

Ted,

You might want to get the real story before your foot enters your large facial orifice. Barak's father was from Kenya, which would make Barak more of an African American than most African Americans.

Please remember: Stupid is as Stupid does.

Boy, that was some low hanging fruit.

Indonesian? Where does that idea come from?

However, NoBama is only 50% AA so he is actually less than most African Americans. But that is neither here nor there. Why does the race or sex of the candidate make any difference?

But on to the original so-called racist remark. It is just stupid and NoBama acted like an adult over the ridiculous accusation.

okay, time for me to be an insufferable know-it-all.

during the democratic convention (monday night?), barack's half-sister spoke. she's a teacher, btw. she's also half indonesian, and half white.

i'm guessing barack's step dad was from indonesia.

i actually agree with mouse - this is silly. yet, i'm thankful we have the internet to shed sunshine on the rep. westmoreland's silliness. disparagement never has the same bite in the sunshine.

The term "uppity" most certainly DOES have a racist pedigree. It was hurled at African Americans, usually followed by the N word, when whites thought a black person was not staying "in his place". Just history. And, fer shure, a southerner knows that. No doubt about it.
