What did MSNBC show mean by this?

Exactly what does it mean that Matthews “forgot Obama was black” in connection to his praise of Obama’s leadership?

  • Does MSNBC think Blacks are normally not good leaders and Obama makes him look past color of skin?

  • Just another ramble from Matthews. That guy puts his foot in it more than Biden and thats an acomplishment. I only watch that station when I need a laugh.

  • Well I am SURE that THIS will be excused JUST like Reid's. Its ANOTHER huge insult to the black community but biggie if it comes from their side.

  • Harry Ried~" He[Obama] is a light skinned" African-American "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one"

    Joe Biden~"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy..."

    Mathews, Maddow, and Olbermann can call Tea Party goers gun toting racists and NOT pan the video camera UP to show it was a black man holding a gun at a tea Party.. LOL This just confirms their liberal hypocrisy... Pathetic...

  • Wonder if he felt that tingle down his leg last night.

  • No one was watching him. I know these are from Tuesday, but he has too few viewers to even register. My guess is last night wasn't much different. More than likely, the 12 people who watched him agreed.

  • WOW Maddow has really gone down the sh*tter in the months since the election. She's such a tool.

  • You have to consider the source.


    Answer by Sweet_Faith at 11:01 AM on Jan. 28, 2010

  • He thought he was being progressive and colorblind. Instead he showed RACE does matter to HIM. Why would it matter that he was black and WHY would you WANT to forget??

    When you say you are color blind, that means to not JUDGE based on color. That does not mean to not appreciate different races and cultures....

    I don't think he understands the implications of what he ACTUALLY said...
