If You Don’t Have Something Smart to Say…

From USA Today (emphasis mine):

The spokeswoman for the Republican Party in Nevada’s most populous county was removed from her post Saturday, after she said the Democratic Party made black people “dependent on the government.”

Didi Lima, the Clark County GOP communications director, also was removed from her volunteer role as a Hispanic community liaison for Republican John McCain’s presidential campaign over the remarks made earlier in the day while working at a McCain campaign booth.

“We don’t want (Hispanics) to become the new African-American community,” Lima told The Associated Press. “And that’s what the Democratic Party is going to do to them, create more programs and give them handouts, food stamps and checks for this and checks for that. We don’t want that.”

“I’m very much afraid that the Democratic Party is going to do the same thing that they did with the African-American culture and make them all dependent on the government and we don’t want that,” she said.

As much as I see her point….you really can’t say that, like that, out in public. Unless you’re black. Then you’ll just be labeled an “uncle Tom.”

It’s like the N-word, in a way: WE can say it (shouldn’t!!!) and there’s no consequence. That right just don’t extend to everyone, though.

Not smart.
