"The University of Texas Austin College Republicans President recently posted an offensive message on Twitter about President Obama.
Cassie Wright tweeted “My President Is Black, He Snorts A Lot Of Crack,” Sunday.
This isn’t the first time a leader of the organization has made offensive remarks about the president. The former President, Lauren Pierce, tweeted last month, “Y’all as tempting as it may be, don’t shoot Obama. We need him to go down in history as the WORST president we’ve EVER had! #2012.”
That Tweet, which Wright’s grandmother has theorized may be the result of hacking, was also re-Tweeted by Wright’s predecessor, the current secretary of the statewide College Texas Republicans, Lauren Pierce." [Source]Now maybe she really does think that Obama smokes crack. (Yes, and I thought that George Bush snorted meth just because he was...you know.) Maybe she is not an ignorant racist who is the personification of the southern white republican these days. Maybe she really believes, that Obama, with his small frame, and hailing from the city of Chicago, just fits the profile of a crack smoker. Maybe.
But should we give her the benefit of the doubt? Or, should we look at the past history of a certain party and their standard- bearers? (Ron Paul comes to mind.)
I have a question for my wingnut friends: Why is it that it is always republicans who seem to engage in this seemingly racist and insensitive type of behavior?
I am guessing that if this was not the case you would probably get more than 8% of the black vote come election time. Just a guess.
Finally, I see where a 22 year old Russian, thanks to her billionaire daddy, just purchased an 88 million dollar crib in Manhattan. She did this because she wants to kick it there part-time while attending college. Nice.
Isn't capitalism great? I bet the Russians are glad that they discovered it.
