Kansas City's former mayor and current Congressman Emanuel Cleaver doesn't think that a Federal Judge's apology should excuse a racist e-mail taking aim at President Obama.
Here's some background on the story with the details of the e-mail that your racist uncle probably already sent you:
Cebull apologizes to Obama for racist email; critics demand resignation
Judge apologizes for forwarding a racist e-mail aimed at Obama
A federal judge’s e-mail spreads racist venom about Obama.
Last night . . .
Congressman Cleaver appeared on MSNBC's "The Ed Show" and reiterated his call for the resignation of the Federal Judge.
The Black, Asian Pacific and Hispanic caucuses have all denounced the e-mail from the judge.
Obviously, the comment section here @ TKC isn't really a place for enlightened discourse about race relations. In fact, I expect a few of you racist d-bags to prove my point about so much online hate that lingers. Still, I think it's worth noting that Congressman Cleaver is doing the right thing by working against the potential for racial bias in the judiciary.
