Harry Reid is running around apologizing to every black person he can find, after being quoted as saying, during the '08 campaign, that Barack Obama made a good candidate because he was a "light-skinned" African American "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."

This was not long after then-Senator Joe Biden called Obama "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy."

Perhaps you recall Chris Rock's bit on Colin Powell...

For some reason this reminds me of when Barbara Boxer was trying to get the head of the Chamber of Commerce, who happens to be African American, to agree with her on a policy. She cited to him quotes by the CEO of "100 Black Men of America" and by the NAACP, who supported the environmental policy they were discussing. And rightfully, the Chamber of Commerce guy called her out on her condescending Racism. He said essentially "why do you quote colored people? Why don't you quote an Asian? Do you think because I'm black that I'll agree with some black guy you're quoting?" Classic Liberal snobbery/racism.

Not surprising, given that the official Democratic Party position, and the view of mainstream Democrats, is that people should be judged not by the content of their character but by the color of their skin.
