Quincy Demands Apology for Racist Comment

Yesterday presidential candidate Barack Obama made a very racist comment implying that Caucasian-Americans cannot dance.

When asked if he thought Bill Clinton was America's "first black president," Mr. Obama answered: "I would have to investigate more Bill's dancing abilities and some of this other stuff before I accurately judged whether he was in fact a brother."

Some of us hoped that America had moved beyond this sort of racial stereotyping, but apparently not. In any case, the Quincy House blog is calling upon Barack Obama to apologize for his comments, which were deeply hurtful to members of the Caucasian-American community.
