Racist RNC, if you please....

A candidate running for the RNC Chair sent out a CD with the song, "Barack, The Magic Negro".

This is not only outrageous, but tasteless to the core. No wonder the GOP, Republicans are branded, "The Good Old "WHITE" Boys Club." They still haven't figured it out. If the American Public wanted this, which we saw some in the general election, they would have VOTED FOR IT.

If one of the Republican Party's challenges is how to effectively oppose the first black president without coming off as racist, one of the candidates for RNC chair is hardly off to a good start -- he is now distributing a CD that includes a racially-charged song called "Barack, The Magic Negro."

Chip Saltsman, the former campaign manager for Mike Huckabee, has distributed a goodie bag to committee members that includes a CD by Paul Shanklin, a writer of right-wing parody tunes who is often featured on Rush Limbaugh. The "Magic Negro" track, which first gathered controversy in the Spring of 2007, featured Shanklin portraying Al Sharpton as an Amos & Andy stereotype, ridiculing white liberals who support Obama.
