I think it's refreshing that America is showing it's colors. Including in George Wallace-style asswipes who run for president.

Campaign over.

Colors? As if we recognize any color besides white here. Not even sure whether to laugh or cry at this latest in a long line.

I would hope that this would end his campaign, but let's be honest. Most of the people who vote for him aren't going to give a fuck.

Between him and Romney, their shit is about to die on the vine come RNC time.

I've had a fucking emotional ass day and I'm sitting here crying because I can't believe I live in this country anymore. Nothing, nothing will ever prevent someone from debasing someone to a simple ignorant and horrible term merely because of their skin color. No one is safe from scorn. If you can call the President of the United Fucking States a 'nigger' than who can't you? What are POCs supposed to think of this? How the fuck do you even RESPOND to this?

I'm seething.

I don't know if it'll help much, but here, have a hug. *hug*

I know, I know, I shouldn't be surprised, but DAMN.

He totally meant to say negotiator

Are people really saying this? Because I was trying to figure out what the fuck the apologists were going to say he was trying to say and there it fucking is.

Tumblr is throwing shade. It's fabulous over there.

There are already some people who are trying to say we should give him the benefit of the doubt and maybe it's not what it sounds like.

LOL. Hell. No. It's what it sounds like.

Tumblr is making me feel all sorts of giddy. Not even kidding.

Here's a cut version.

The sad part is he seems so used to saying it that the word seems like it was almost normal. That he had to strain to cut himself.

Yep. It's exactly what it sounds like when I catch myself cursing in front of my parents.

I was just wondering whether to post this here after seeing it on Tumblr.

minilovely 30th-Mar-2012 06:37 am (UTC)
I'm not really surprised, but it's still kind of "woah holy shit" seeing him actually getting caught doing it.
4eyedblonde 30th-Mar-2012 07:52 am (UTC)
Same here. It was only a matter of time.
cherrims 30th-Mar-2012 06:38 am (UTC)
ok so when can we kick him out of everything

I love this icon. I really wish they hadn't hipster-ised her glasses.

I just had an argument with my father about the sexism, misogyny, xenophobia and rampant racism within the republican party. Then I get online and this happened. I want to beat my head into a wall. He's so nonchalant about it.
