Allen's Ca-ca Mouth

It would be bad enough if he said it just once, but Sen. George Allen (R-VA) twice pointed and sneered "Macaca" to S. R. Sidarth, of Indian descent, who was videotaping Allen's reelection campaign event for his Democratic opponent James Webb.

To make sure Allen made points with his entertained conservative audience.... his final salvo at Sidarth was, "Macaca, or whatever his name is....Welcome to America and the real world of Virginia." The crowd laughed and applauded. Sidarth, born in Fairfax, VA, is the son of a successful mortgage banker. (Washington Post)

Macaca is a racial slur meaning literally "a genus of monkey."

Allen's supporters and staff rushed to his defense.... he said "Mohawk" (NOT) and he isn't racist. Here is the video of the remark, you decide.

Allen's younger sister, Jennifer Allen, alleges in her memoir Fifth Quarter: The Scrimmage of a Football Coach's Daughter, that Allen sadistically attacked his younger siblings during his childhood. He was once suspended from high school for painting what a school administrator described as racist graffiti on school walls. Allen has a long history of promoting the Confederacy even using the flag in political ads in 1993. There's more, but you get the idea.

Just as the best can rise like cream to the top, pond scum also rises to the top.

Virginians.... run, don't walk, to your polls in November and rid yourselves and our government of this slimy Senator. We all deserve better.

Today August 16th, approx. 8:10 a.m. Miles O'Brien on CNN said (I am paraphrasing) "Everybody knows white guys can't rap." Eminem is the top rapper. I hate the music, if you can call it that, but why does he get away insulting white males on the air. What if he said, "Everybody knows black males are criminals the prisions and jails are filled with them." You would be beside yourself with anger and outrage even though it is an indisputable fact. Why the racist bigotry by the press?

Ray, And your point is?... Miles (who surely you're not accusing of being a racist) made what I'm sure is a good-natured remark about rap music.

Quite different than accusing [all] black males of being criminals. Yes, there are a lot of black males in prison, and white males, our prisons are teeming.

If someone in the public eye accused black (white, brown, yellow, purple) males of being criminals you can bet I (and I'm sure the press)would be outraged.

Not being outraged is bigotry.
