Yeah, he apologized cuz he got caught saying it. But again, pointing out the arrogance of such a statement and challenging the person who made it to defend it seems like a better way of dealing with it than just being offended and forcing a fake apology. What does that solve other than encouraging people to continue to complain about any little thing and force people to closet their actual feelings. People get offended about EVERYTHING anymore. It's just one person's opinion. Let them prove it then if they feel that way. Let him speak his mind. I WANT to know what he really thinks! Not just what he knows we want him to think. Give me reality even if it isn't pretty.
In any case, I find it sad that all poor people are being looked down upon as ignorant in these cases, and would like someone to further explain their rationale in coming to that conclusion. And then if you feel these poor, misguided people are so bad off, what are you all doing about it besides looking down on them? Those who are so fortunate to be so enlightened should share their vast wisdom with these poor, dumb folk no? Anyway, Obama should certainly know better than to stereotype an ENTIRE group of people! Arrogance is what it comes down to. But he's a very religious person himself, so now what? He isn't taking issue with any religion, he was taking issue with those people's religion. The white trash. That's the real issue. Yeah, surprising he survived that faux pa.
Anyway, plenty of ignorant middle and upper class too. Personally, I find the state of this country's intelligence pretty depressing lately. People are more interested in TMZ, gossip rags, and reality shows than in actually contributing to society and doing their part to improve this place. Who can be bothered when they've got their DVR filled up with dumb shows to watch. God, they'd be contributing just demanding entertainment that isn't so base and mean spirited. I mean, what are we becoming the Roman Empire? Next up, throwing celebrities to the lions! Or are they already doing that? How many people are waiting for one of the addicts on Celebrity Rehab to kick off? Sad to say, but people would be riveted. I find it disgusting. But let's rag on the poor and religious. Cuz it's easy.
Sorry, feeling a bit bummed tonight. Know I'm going overboard. :B
