All In "Good Fun".

Tea Party candidate Carl Paladino has been sending these images out via email.

“To me it’s just humor,” Paladino said. “I’m not racist and have never related Obama’s color to my political taste for him.”

“I’m not ethnic sensitive to ethnic humor,” he continued. “dago, spic, polack whatever we hear the humor every day.”

To portray the President of the United States as a pimp, rather than as the Harvard educated lawyer that he is, is racist. Whether Paladino thinks it is or not. There is nothing I can think of in Obama's policies which one could fairly say reminded one of a pimp. One is, therefore, left with his skin colour.

Why else would anyone make that comparison?
