From the Archives: Nevadans Using ‘Negro’ in a Sentence

Since liberals are so keen to point out the horrid comments of Cliven Bundy, I thought I just remind readers of what Sen. Harry Reid said of then-candidate Obama:

Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) apologized Saturday for referring to President Obama in private conversations during the 2008 presidential campaign as “light-skinned” and as having “no Negro dialect.”

“I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words,” Reid said in a statement. “I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African Americans, for my improper comments.”

I expect that, if Bundy apologizes, the Left won’t be as quick to forgive, however.
