Calling Obama Names
Pat Buchanan is just the latest white man to insult President Obama by referring to him as "your boy" in a discussion with Al Sharpton. Only days ago Doug Lamborn, Republican representative from Colorado, likened Obama to "tar baby" but back-pedalled the next day by claiming he meant to liken him to a "quagmire." Racism is more alive and well in the United States of America than I thought it was.
