It was only a matter of time before Andrew Cuomo would take his "shuck and jive" comments, catch heat for them and complain they were "taken out of context".

"Taken out of context" is always used to explain away a racial comment. As in saying, "I said something racist, but it really wasn't racist."

Why don't you just say "I don't want that N----er to become President" and get it over with?

I knew it was only a matter of time before the my comments were taken out of context” line would be used by Cuomo, and hopes that this all blows over.

The Clintons and their surrogates are now using “code words” racism regarding Obama, and it’s time we exposed their desperation. First the Big Dog coins Obama’s campaign as a “fairy tale”; now Cuomo with the “shuck and jive” comment, a phrase, which was coined by African-Americans when we called out those who were House Negroes back in the 1920s.

The Clintons have lost this African-American voter, and not because it’s Barack Obama, because he’s not my first choice for President.

They lost me because they assumed that all African-Americans are monolithic and we’re showing them we’re not. Some of us are in the Obama camp; some were in Richardson’s camp and a good deal were on the Edwards train. The Clintons lost me because they think they can easily traverse between Blacks and Whites, burn Blacks and think it won’t come back to haunt them. They think people like me are stupid and so loyal in the voting booth because of past history.

Past history also shows African-Americans have long damned memories - if they engage in this “Southern Strategy” (ala Richard Nixon) to get the White House, African-Americans won’t forget how they got POTUS, no matter how many House Negroes they trot out to persuade us to return to the plantation.

I’m betting Al Gore might come out and endorse Obama - that would be a bigger blow to the Clinton campaign than Kerry endorsing Obama over Edwards, because it would be swift payback to the Clintons for slinging him under the bus in 2000 to clear the way for Hillary in the first place.

The Clintons are showing their true colors and Toni Morrison needs to apologize for giving Clinton the label of “first Black President” when he slung Blacks under the bus at a faster rate than Ronald Reagan did.
