Barak the Magic Negro

Video on AlterNet

This is a head-shaker. Imus gets canned for calling some college women basketball players “nappy-headed hos” and yet Rush Limbaugh plays “Barack The Magic Negro” on his show and he is still on the air?

How is that even possible?

To hear the song yourself, watch video right….

It is a parody by Paul Shanklin impersonating Al Sharpton and based on the Peter, Paul, and Mary hit song “Puff, the Magic Dragon”. I am really at a loss of words. I heard it for the first time yesterday on the radio and was sickened.

RNC chairman candidate defends ‘Barack the Magic Negro’ song

A candidate for the Republican National Committee chairmanship said Friday the CD he sent committee members for Christmas — which included a song titled “Barack the Magic Negro” — was clearly intended as a joke.

“I think most people recognize political satire when they see it,” Tennessee Republican Chip Saltsman told CNN. “I think RNC members understand that.”

Really? You thought everyone would recognize that as humor? What century are we in?

  1. What’s really stupid is that this song is more than 6 months old. Limbaugh has been playing it for months. Then this idiot RNC wannabe makes a CD and sends it out to all RNC members. No one is shocked to learn it was on Limbaugh’s show, but the WHOLE RNC!!!???
