MSNBC’s Wagner: ‘Half-Black’ Obama Doubling Down on Using Thug (RealClearPolitics)
WAGNER, MSNBC: Brittney, you bring up this point in your writing today that it is as much a black-white issue as much as it's a black-black issue. I mean, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is a black woman. Barack Obama is half-black, half-white, but is identified as a black president and they're using the word thug. Now, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has since apologized, but the president seems, if we're to believe the White House press secretary, defiantly sort of doubling down on this is how I describe looters and people who perpetrate violence. So what is that conversation in the black community?
