Senator Harry Reid should tender his resignation! His remarks were disgusting and an insult to the entire African-American Community. We cannot move forward in the betterment of race relations while having a racist head-up the Senate, whether he is a Democrat or a Republican!
Harry Reid apparently feels that President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat and our nation's first African-American President, is too "light skinned" and speaks "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."
This is an outrageous and repugnant remark, and it reflects the very racial stereotypes that we are intent on eliminating from the public forum.
Even as history was being made with the election of our first black President, Harry Reid was clinging to the revolting stereotypes of yesteryear.
Harry Reid has embarrassed the country, he has shamed Nevada, and he has insulted the President. Not one piece of legislative business should be advanced until this racist is removed from office.
