Gee, nobody seems to remember such racial insensitivity from Dingy Harry. Well, racism is acceptable in the Democratic Party, of course.
Coincidentally, Reid’s career was put in jeopardy when he was quoted by anonymous sources for making racially insensitive remarks in Game Change, the blockbuster book on the 2008 presidential election.
Reid reportedly praised Obama’s appeal — on the basis that the then-senator from Illinois was “light-skinned” and had “no Negro dialect.”
The Nevada Democrat quickly apologized for the comments, and the controversy faded.
Of course it faded. It he was a Republican his career would have been over. But like we said, his supporters and folks who vote for him are fine with his racist behavior.
