Chinese Is The New Black

A court ruled that Chinese South Africans are black, according to the AFP.

Challenged by the Chinese Association of South Africa (CASA), Chinese South Africans (who are less than 10,000 of the country’s 47 million population) can now benefit—with people of black, Indian and mixed-race ancestry—from laws aimed at correcting injustice stemmed from the former apartheid regime.

ObamaNation: Black Repub May Choose Race Over Party

Conservative political commentator Armstrong Williams, who has never voted for a Democrat for president and was hailed as “one of the most recognizable conservative voices in America” by the Washington Post, may vote for Barack Obama—gasp! a democrat.

“For the first time in my life, history thrusts me to really seriously think about it,” Williams told the AP. “I can honestly say I have no idea who I’m going to pull that lever for in November. And to me, that’s incredible.”

ObamaNation: Obama Mama Drama

The right-bent Fox News Channel is under fire (yet, again) for referring to Michelle Obama as “Obama’s baby mama” in an on-air graphic.

In a statement, Senior VP of programming credits the misstep to a producer who “exercised poor judgment” during the infamous segment. However, the producer was not fired and no other disciplinary action was announced (go figure!), according to the AP.

This “poor judgement” isn’t surprising (remember, we’re talking about the same station that called the Obamas’ victory pound a “terrorist fist jab”). It’s disappointing because the network’s apology won’t reach enough of its core audience to correct the ignorance caused by undermining the accomplishments of the prospective First Lady of the free world.

Imagine Fox News calling John McCain’s wife his baby mama!
