Congressman Doug Lamborn calls Obama a racial slur

I don't know what it is, oh wait yes I do, but it's like almost everyday now someone in congress is speaking in public calling the President of the US a racial slur.

Colorado Republican Congressman Doug Lamborn recently told a Denver radio show host, "I don't even want to have to be associated with [Obama]. It's like touching a 'tar baby.'"

Shouldn't this guy be fired from his job in congress? He has shown he is prejudice. So what if he apologized for that comment, it doesn't change the fact that he said it and that's how he is. He doesn't need to be in congress, there's already enough of that, we need to get rid of those kinds of people in congress.

Rapper 50 Cent had something to say on Twitter about Lamborn after he apologized for his dumb racist comment. I'm in total agreement with 50 Cent.
"Republican congressman Doug Lamborn should be re leaved of his duties after calling president Obama a tar baby," he wrote.

"Tar baby is a synonym for n*gger, except it is only used in bigoted manners, were as n*gga can be a sign of respect."

"The term comes from a children's story in witch they explain that slaves were "dark and dumb" due to the fact they were" baptized in TAR" #SK."

"I can't find a more disrespectful or ignorant way to describe the race or depiction of our president," he added.

Between so called educated white congressman Doug Lamborn and Mark
Halpern, making remakes and then to say, they didn't know it was a racist slur or derogatory term,. What schools did they go to and I won't send my children there>> Hate and racism is learned in the home. This is the reason some many people and many are my friends are leaving the united states for countries that at least respect there political peoples.

These two guys will probably be the first to tell you their best friends are colored and they are the ones who are white and baked in the sun. Fake. . . . . .

I agree with previous comment that racism is learned in the home.NO you can't blame the schools or kids on the playground it really does have it's origins on the living room sofa or over the kitchen table. For example when my young neighbor was in her sophomore year at a school in Iowa a white female student approached her with this question, Is it true that black people have tails? and then added later her parents told her when she was a little girl all black people had tails! This chick didn't learn this horrible racial myth at school her mom and dad instilled it in her. Yes,families can and are responsible for the never ending river of white racism.

I see no reason to be so disrespectful with reference to the President of the United States. How dare you allow such a display of disrespect to the person who runs the country. There is no words to dispell the reason we are in a depression, as our last president placed this country in, and yet no one discusses that. President Obama has displayed nothing but the utmost respect for this country, the middle and low class people, which is something I have seen very few presidents do. And, He has done so much for the country as a whole, he has bought some of the troops home, bin laden is no longer a threat, the health care is doing much better, and jobs are opening up. How dare this country allow people to be so disrespectful and you do nothing to show this Man the respect he deserves. How dare you, as people in leadership, allow this to go on. It makes you just as guilty as the people who said it. Shame on you all
