Steele Agrees: Obama a 'Magic Negro'

When Chip Saltsman, Michael Steele's old rival for the RNC chair, distributed a CD with the song "Barack the Magic Negro" on it, Steele lashed out in January. “It doesn’t help at all,” he said at the time. “Absolutely, it reinforces a negative stereotype of the party.” Now that Steele heads up the Republican Party, has he changed his tune? While hosting a radio show on Friday, Steele laughed along with a caller who called President Obama a "magic negro." The caller continued: "Even when things go wrong, he still manages to come out smelling like a rose." Steele said, "Well, yeah." And thus ends the most politically incorrect statement of the week.
