But he gets away with it b.c he plays for the same team as them.
Anyone who says he wanted to get booed to win over racists is just a fool. I know we now live in an era where people don't care whether or not they get bad press b.c they just want the exposure but that is not true with politicians. No politician wants to get booed. There is a such thing as bad publicity in politics.
Basically everything that has gone on in the media (and it is the media that created this) has basically undermined everything we have been trying to achieve over the past 60 years with regards to racial equality. Do they really want Romney to lie to the NAACP just so he can get an applause? If I was a member I would take it as an insult to my intelligence that someone would speak before me and lie to my face just to get my support.
No, I know better than that. I would never attempt to be a hero for an omniscient. You guys got it all figured out.
Just that not every lefty is the same. Or every righty for that matter.
