Barack Obama (you know, the guy who won’t be the next president of the U.S) realizes that he can’t even garner a majority of the black vote, much less the white. So, in another ridiculous display of desperation he is now demanding that the head of the Justice Department’s voting right division be fired.
Why? Did he call Obama a nigger? no. Did he say that Oprah was a ‘nappy headed ho’? no. So what did he do? Yahoo! News will tell us!
John Tanner’s remarks came during an Oct. 5 panel discussion on minority voters before the National Latino Congreso in Los Angeles. Tanner addressed state laws that require photo identification for voting, saying that elderly voters disproportionately don’t have the proper IDs.
“That’s a shame, you know, creating problems for elderly persons just is not good under any circumstance,” Tanner said, according to video posted on YouTube. “Of course, that also ties into the racial aspect because our society is such that minorities don’t become elderly the way white people do. They die first.
“There are inequities in health care. There are a variety of inequities in this country, and so anything that disproportionately impacts the elderly has the opposite impact on minorities. Just the math is such as that,” Tanner said.
Yeah, big fucking deal. It wasn’t an insult or even demeaning. Hell, the last paragraph quotes him saying that minorities aren’t getting fair play in health care. This is just another example of how blacks will latch onto anything they can to try to find someone “who be hatin”.
