Hey, Jimmy - Who You Callin' "Boy"?

Former president Jimmy Carter refers to Barack Obama as "this black boy" in a TV interview! This is yet another example of the mainstream media double standard with nary a peep heard outside of conservative talk radio.

Imagine if Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh or some other prominent conservative had made the same statement! Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the other purveyors of the race industry would be all over it posthaste demanding apologies, censure, fines, and resignations. The audio and video would also be all over the mainstream media accompanied by expressions of outrage and hysterical blather from the liberal anchors and commentators.

I'm sure the former president didn't intend anything malicious with his comments, just as Trent Lott didn't intentionally try to offend anyone with his clumsy attempt at being gracious to a 100 year old colleague. The difference is that the media selectively made a mountain of a mole hill in Lott's case and gave a pass to their boy in the other.
