Conservatives? Racist? Nah……
Meet Ross Calloway.
He doesn’t appear to be too fond of black people:
Here’s a Cynthia McKinney coincidence. In her recent incident with the Capitol Police, I suggested the possibility that this was a case of ‘you can take the woman out of the ghetto, but you can’t (in her case) get the ghetto out of the woman,’ to explain her first response to be fisticuffs. Now we find that she also learned how to game the system. But got caught. Having trouble getting the ghetto out of the woman.
In case you haven’t heard, Cynthia McKinney is a Black woman. She made that fact clear last week in a quickie news conference to accuse the Capitol Police of discrimination. This woman has such a chip on her shoulder over her race that it’s a wonder she can stand up straight. It’s too bad she doesn’t see the good part of this experience, which is the fact that she was challenged in the first place. That policeman, like two who gave their lives a couple years ago, puts his life on the line on a daily basis to protect people like her. And the fact that she is reacting the way she is over this, is g-h-e-t-t-o.
Most ridiculous item of the day. McKinney is claiming she is a victim of racial profiling. She is Black. She is in Washington, D.C..
Here is more Ross:
Failing to even consider that the Capitol policeman just didn’t recognize her, and she was not wearing her special lapel pin that would have identified her as a member of Congress, Rep. McKinney does what comes natural, she goes to fisticuffs. You can take the woman out of the ghetto, but . . .
update 3/31/06: And after a couple days to think things over. She feels there is no apology due for her assault and battery on a policeman. Only she knows if the officer’s race has any bearing on her obstinate, immature behavior. Yup, can’t get the ghetto out of the woman.
Ross Calloway: Doesn’t like black people,. Loves the word ‘ghetto’.
The upside is he that didn’t say:
“She looks like a ghetto slut.”
“It looks like an explosion in a Brillo pad factory. Itâ€™s just hideous. To me, that hairstyle just shows contempt for â€” no, itâ€™s not an Afro. I mean, no, it just shows contempt for the position that she holds.”
“She looks like Tina Turner peeing on an electric fence.”
He left that for the professionals.
