    Umm...im not clear on why an apology is warranted..Is this man not entitled to his 1st amendment rights? Who did it really "hurt"? Typical liberal double standard.

    The clown and his followers can enjoy their joke all they want. Just know it reflects poorly on your character.

    We don't know if something derogatory was intended; therefore, we should assume something derogatory was intended, unless the clown was a liberal, in which case, it would be impossible for the clown to say anything derogatory.

    It's a reference to all of those pictorials of native tribal African women (mostly naked) in National Geographics back in the 60's when if they had put naked white European women in there it would have been banned.
    And yes, it's racist as hell.

    Of course it was intended to be derogatory. Stop doing what a liberal would. I hate intentional obtuseness, especially from somebody that's supposed to be a conservative.
    All conservatives have is honesty and logic. Let the liberals stick to the propagandist lies.

    other people asking for an apology is not harming his 1st amendment rights, are you suggesting we should silence them and restrict their 1st amendment rights?

    After being on this board for several years, one thing is clear to me - racism against black people is very much alive and kicking in the USA.

    And anyone claiming this is a 1st ammendment issue would clearly be giving yet more evidence of that observation.

    Certainly he is entitled to his "1st Amendment Rights".

    And his employer is entitled to FIRE his butt for making tasteless and derogatory statements to potential customers.

    Liberals have no sense of humor when it comes to their dear leader and his wife.

    Employers aren't obligated to protect the first amendment rights of employees. And if I was the employer.....I'd probably fire him. Because as stated earlier......I'd be concerned about losing customers. And I'm about as anti-Obama--the couple and the man--as you can get.

    The first amendment is supposed to guarantee that government can't use its power to restrict speech. That is happening by the way----our government has its attorneys out studying to see how it can use supposed legal power to restrict speech.

    I've noticed that it's ok to call a Republican a slut but not a progressive.

    The fact that you claim to not see the problem with tells me you know exactly what the problem is with it...

    Michelle Obama is an upstanding American citizen and any reference to any tribal personalities should be outright dismissed. You all should be ashamed at this blatant smear.

    Tasteless? Actually it is quite bold. To all the liberals who have some sort of problem with this...drop dead...I dont recall ANY lib defending Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, Ann Coulter, or Michelle Malkin against all the mysnogist "jokes". And they didnt even help destroy the country like Manchelle..

    I'm sure he would down deep. Because there's at least one thing you have to give liberals- they don't even really like each other.

    But that's one of liberals' greatest problems- being afraid of being "deemed" to have any number of negative things. Higher self-esteem would fix that. In fact, it is fearful liberals that have even raised the theory that being "racist" has to be negative. Some of the best jokes I know are about the ethnicity that I AM, and I don't take offense, because I'm strong, I have high self-esteem and I know that no malice was probably meant anyway.

    But leave it to a fearful liberal to see racism where it isn't, and to see negative racism when it's not negative.

    100% correct.

    Liberals are weak. The sooner we understand that, the better.
