Harry Reid racist? Comments made by Senator Harry Reid during the 2008 elections are being construed as racist by many, and some are even calling for Senator Reid’s resignation because of these comments.
Harry Reid racist comments include calling President Barack Obama “light skinned” with “no negro dialect” – except, of courseÂ when he wants it. President Obama has spoken with Senator Reid about the comments and says that he knows what is in Harry Reid’s heart and considers the book “closed.”
Is there a double standard? Harry Reid is a democrat, and one cannot help but wonder what the reaction would be if a republican had said the same comments that Reid did.
Harry Reid racist comments were made when he was stating that Obama was electable. This is when he offered the “light skinned” and “no negro dialect” explanations.
According to ABC News, George Will agrees with Reid, stating “I don’t think there’s a scintilla of racism in what Harry Reid said.Â At long last, Harry Reid has said something that no one can disagree with, and he gets in trouble for it.”
Conservative Liz Chenez says “â€œOne of the things that makes the American people frustrated is when they see time and time again liberals excusing racism from other liberals.Â And I think that, you know, clearly, Senator Reid’s comments were outrageous.”
