Carter Called Obama “This Black Boy”

Well, Maureen Dowd will be furious when she hears this one. It is Ms. Dowd, as noted in my column nearby, who said she heard Congressman Joe Wilson really yell “You Lie…Boy!” in a racially derogatory fashion even though she admits he only said the first two words. Her point, of course, is that to refer to the President as a “boy” is a racial insult. 

In case Ms. Dowd — or White Mo as we fondly refer to her in these quarters based on her proclivity for judging people by skin color — saw the video linked here she might, well, never write about it! After all, you don’t want to see Jimmy Carter actually call Mr. Obama “this black boy” and get written up as an actual news event in the New York Times, do you. As the rest of us learned long ago, all the news really isn’t fit to print.

Gene Koprowski, president of the Illinois Assembly, pointed us to this video, courtesy of Frances Rice, in which the illustrious Jimmy Carter during last year’s Democratic Convention refers to Barack Obama as “this black boy”… Rice, by the way, is a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel, a lawyer and chairman of the National Black Republican Association. She can be contacted at: www.NBRA.Info 

We all remember the media horror that ensued over this, right?

Serious hat tip to both Rice and Koprowski.
