Comments: Railing on Rall

I plan to blog about this, too. I share your anger, my brother. A few years ago, a white MD legislator called Michael Steele, Republican Lt. Governor an "Uncle Tom." The Baltimore Sun implied Steele was being used by white conservatives. Not a peep was heard from any black liberal in MD, DC or the Congressional Black Caucus.

My reaction was much like yours. I was angry to the point of distraction this morning as I got ready for work. I thought, "Are they going to let this white boy get away with that???"

We will wait in vain for Jesse to come out against this one, Michael. This is how unmanly men defend a woman.

We shouldn't wait for black liberals to raise hell about this mess, because they won't. Rall is a fellow liberal, and they believe that Condi "deserves" such abuse. We should do it ourselves!

Condi Rice could mop the floor with Hillary Clinton when it comes to smarts, class and looks. She's self-made. Her accomplishments are hers. She isn't the free ride from a politico husband. Ironic, isn't it.

The dispicable message in Rall's cartoon and leftist wags is that the remarkable black members on Bush's cabinet are useful idiots to him. What's so cynically revealed is the real inner logic of the left: blacks are tokens to us,
therefore they must be to Bush.

Every time I see Condi on the news I think what an elegant and intelligent woman she is. Since 9/11, I thank God she is the National Security Advisor. You can see in her demeanor how seriously she works helping to keep us safer.

Rall is a creep, a racist, and sadly representative of the Democratic party and media elite today.

LaShawn. As I remember, WOLB talk show host Larry Young spoke out against the comments.

Larry Young is a former state senator for Maryland. He's very liberal and he said it was wrong. In fact, Steele and Erlich call into the morning show occasionally. Steele is on the station more than Erlich.

Michael Steele also had a weekly radio show on WOLB where he addressed the majority Black audience.

Clarence Mitchell, III also spoke out against the comments. He's a Democrat.

So, your "not a peep" comment is not correct.

Not really. Not a peep was heard by me. What did they say about Mike what's-his-name's "Uncle Tom" comments?

Your location has been given as D.C. Can you get the signal of WOLB there? I can't get the signal past the I-495/I-95 interchange.

Again I'll say, there were comments made against what the The Sun wrote and Mike Miller's comments.

They said the editorial and Miller's comments were out of line. On WOLB, Larry Young has stated he likes Michael Steele. When Larry Young was in the hospital, Steele gave Young a call. When Young was out of the hospital and was in a public meeting, Young said Steele came by just to see how he was feeling.

So, again, if you didn't hear it, does it mean it didn't happen?
