Veiled racism? Well, maybe it's not that veiled at all.
Adam LaDuca, former executive director of the Pennsylvania Federation of College Republicans was recently forced to resign after posting on his facebook page that Obama has "a pair of lips so large he could float half of Cuba to the shores of Miami (and probably would.)"
In poor taste, certainly. But is it racism?
When you consider that this same man regarded MLK as a "fraud" and a "pariah", and that he also headed up a hotly condemned bake sale in protest of affirmative action that charged white people more for the baked goods, I'd be tempted to say that it's probably pretty racist. However, LaDuca defends himself, stating that his comment was no different than comments that targeted Bush's big ears and others based on the physical attributes of politicians.
It's not a bad point. So, what's your take? Is this kid racist, or are we looking at a double-standard?
