Oh Boy

Congressman Geoff Davis of Kentucky just called Obama a "boy." As is "That boy’s finger does not need to be on the button." That's right, a GOP Congressman just insulted the leading black Democratic Presidential canidiate a "boy."

And you thought this was a joke.

You know, for some reason, "Boy" has always seemed more insulting to me than the "N" word. Because with the "N" word they are being openly discrimnatory, however "Boy" is supposed to come across as friendly and inclusive when it's really derogatory and condescending. Nothing irritates me more than hearing a white person refer to an adult black man as "Boy." Might as well just tattoo racist idiot on your forehead.
