Matthews to Michael Steele: Were you afraid Republican white guys were scared of you?

Heh, I’m not sure this is top news … but, well another example of post racial MSNBC. Should I laugh or should I cry? Even Eugene Robinson could not contain his laughter as Matthews poses his feel good racial question to newly deposed RNC Chairman Michael Steele. The man who almost forgot Obama was black … strikes again.

It’s Matthews Martin Luther King Day show with three African Americans on the set at the same time: WaPo’s Eugene Robinson, Congresswoman Donna Edwards and of course Michael Steele. I am not sure what possessed Matthews to ask the question but no one on the panel took him seriously at first … until Steele suddenly realizes Matthews is serious. So … where does this one stand on the “Matthews Meter”? Better than the thrill? Better than”I almost forgot he was black”? Better than “Are you a member of the planet of the apes”? Better than ….. oh never mind.


And while we are on the subject. Matthews finally takes a moment to explain what he meant by Obama gave him a thrill up his leg. I think this means it’s the same as saying you Republicans miss Ronald Reagan or something.


Looking for a refresher course. Here is is.


And here he is forgetting Obama was black … almost.


Ahh Chris … you are entertaining. At least you made Steele laugh.

    Paraphrasing MLK's 'dream' speech, "…when a man is judged by his character instead of by the color of his skin."  I observe that if said character judgment is is less than sterling, it is immediately assumed that color is being judged.  If people were more proud of being American, and less proud of being African, their dream would be sooner realized.

    I am prejudiced. Against sloth, irresponsibility, dishonesty, and against persons of any race, color or creed who exhibit such qualities.

    Phil, Point…Score!. I will always be grateful for attending public high school in a small city in CT. I learned to judge my fellow students Not by their skin color, but by them as a whole person. We had huge Afro-American (we were told to call them black then) Girl gang fights, one of which involved my girlfriend (one against 15) dating the most eligible black guy. Girls were ten times more vicious then guys. A specialty was tearing pierced earrings out of ears.  I judged them the same as whites who fought in gangs. We had a sit-in because the blacks wanted chitlings for lunch in the cafe, when most grew up in the NE and never ever had chitlings. They sat outside of their classes. I judged them to be stupid because they missed a day of classes. Those who were black, that did attend classes were MY heroes, because they endured slurs like "Uncle Toms". So who is racist? Those of us, who had friends of all colors benefited the MOST. We co-mingled like the blacks at Republican events. What's the matter Chris, You don't hang with the blacks?
