His statements were completely ignorant and pointless.
Exactly!! I first heard about this on conservative radio and they were all over that one of "us" is making black people look silly. I can relate to this because I have been called "white" for the way I talk, for taking advanced classes in school, have white friends ect. Since when do all black people have to entertain certain beliefs? We say we want to be treated as individuals and not be labeled by stereotypes or profiled yet when someone doesn't fit the black "mold" they are an uncle tom, sellout, oreo. Stupidity.
