  1. This type of thing is deep seated. It doesn't matter the words, we are all programmed from early on to say hateful, hurtful things. We do this to protect ourselves and to keep/push others away. So what do we expect when this guy feels threatened in some manner? He calls Obama "boy". Is it bad? Sure. Is it newsworthy? No. Should he play nice? Yes. Will it happen again? Probably.

  2. I don't disagree with you in re: upbringing, knee-jerk reactions and regrettable words. but it is very depressing to note that the Hon. Mr. Davis is in his 40s or 50s, came of age after the Civil Rights movement, has no way of not knowing how deeply insulting it is to call an adult man "boy" and does it anyway. the worst part? it was during a fund-raiser dinner, where he probably felt "safe" to let go with a phrase "understood" (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) to those present.

  3. That's what happens when you expect our leaders to be better than the average Joe, you get disappointed. I'll tell you something I read just recently that was an eye opener, the piece about Bill Cosby and all the things he's been up to. Very fascinating article. So much to think about in there, but not anything like what you'd probably expect to hear from someone like Bill Cosby. Check it out when you have time.
