Senate Majority Leader Dingy Harry Reid apologized following reports he had privately described then-candidate Barack Obama during the presidential campaign as a black candidate who could be successful thanks in part to his “light-skinned” appearance and speaking patterns “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”
“I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words,” Reid said in a statement to CNN.
In his statement, Reid said he apologized “for offending any and all Americans, especially African Americans for my improper comments.
Can An Apology Erase Racist Beliefs?
Is Dingy Harry still a racist? He is sorry for saying it, but he still said it. Dingy Harry was sorry for his “poor choice of words”, did he still mean what he said but only wished he used different words? What words would make this statement appropriate?
The words really don’t matter, yes, they could have been even more offensive, but the real offense was the thought or belief behind the words… Racist thoughts, racist beliefs.
Dingy Harry Reid still believes that Negros are second class citizens and must act white to fit in with the ruling class whites, he just won’t say it out loud anymore.
Reid never apologized for thinking that way and he never expressed regret for such backwards views of what Americans will accept.
Dingy Harry Reid does not believe in diversity, he only believes in what fills his pockets and progresses his socialist ideals, even if it means campaigning for a black man…as long as he’s not too black.
