Something Racist Someone Else Said

"Just from what little I’ve seen of her and Mr. Obama, Sen. Obama, they're a member of an elitist-class individual that thinks that they're uppity," Westmoreland said.

Asked to clarify that he used the word “uppity,” Westmoreland said, “Uppity, yeah.” -Lynn Westmoreland, Republican Representative from Georgia when asked to Compare Sarah Palin to Michelle Obama

I recently posted another of Westmoreland's greatest hits here.

Heard this on my morning show as well. The comment seemed pretty unfounded, but racist? Come on...

You've never heard the term "uppity negro"? It was very prevelent in the South for decades, and a man of Westmoreland's age had to have heard that phrase before. I'm not saying that he's an out and out racist but his recent denials that he had no idea what he was saying are full of shit.
