CNN’s Soledad O’Brien took Breitbart.com editor Joel Pollak to task over the Obama-Harvard videos, and a panelist on her show accused Pollak of “being afraid of black people.”
Aside from struggling to hold her own (and failing miserably) in a debate with Pollak about critical race theory, O’Brien ended up with egg on her face and so did the panelist.
This video from Pollak’s 2010 campaign for a U.S. House seat explains the egg:
J. Christian Adams, in a post at The Election Law Center website, said Pollak told him, “[T]he only black person he might be afraid of is his mother-in-law.”
Stereotypes are never a good idea although most of us conservatives are accustomed to serving as targets for the same.
Thanks to my fellow Twitterer @Elextions for pointing me to this story.
Those who know me personally will understand why I got such a kick out of this.
