  • I think he is an "entertainer" of the Howard Stern and Rush ilk..outrageousness gets viewers

    Context and understanding the complex race issues that surround the United States especially for a little mixed boy being raised by all white people in the 60's and 70's would be smartly used in this instance. He was very close to his grand mother, so to imply that he hated her is pretty gross

    Oh no, there is plenty to say about Obama's foot in mouth moments. Special Olympics, anyone?
