50 Cent & Sherri Shepherd Of The View Go Off On Doug Lamborn For Calling President Obama A Tar Baby

 

Video After The Jump

As we previously reported, Rep. Doug Lamborn, (R-Colo.), has come under fire for using the term "tar baby" to describe President Obama during a radio interview.

Lamborn has since issued an apology, but for many that's not enough.

50 Cent weighed in on the situation today via Twitter, calling for Lamborn to either step down or be forced to resign.

"Republican congressman Doug Lamborn should be relieved of his duties after calling president Obama a tar baby," 50 tweeted to his nearly 5 million followers. "Tar baby is a synonym for n*gger, except it is only used in bigoted manners, whereas n*gga can be a sign of respect. The term comes from a children's story in which they explain that slaves were 'dark and dumb'due to the fact they were 'baptized in TAR' #SK."

 


Sherri Shepherd of The View was equally outraged. She vented on the show today, saying she is tired of people like Lamborn and Rush Limbaugh, uttering racially insensitive remarks about Obama and getting away with it without consequences.

"I'm tired of giving people a pass, and then they do an apology and say I didn't know," Shepherd said. "I've never heard a purist call Nixon, Clinton, Bush, Reagan, a tar baby. I don't care. ...Everybody's using these things for Barack Obama and I say, I think you know exactly what you're saying and it's so much in your heart, the racism, you can't even help it. It freaking comes out!"

When people come with that Tar Baby has more than one meaning b******* its a cover up. N***** also means lazy person but if you call me a N***** I will prove that definition wrong because I will be working on your a** until the police show up.

Race, pride and prejudice is all this world has come to. We need to change our ways and view each other as humans beings rather than point out our differences.

Sorry, but that's some simple minded horse s***. A "race" being inferior or superior is just an opinion.
