Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson, who told a Nation of Islam radio show that Clarence Thomas was an "Uncle Tom," Mitch McConnell was a "racist," and all  opposition to President Obama is based on the fact that he's black, refused to back down from those comments on CNN interview:

    But he offered no apologies for his comments to CNN and reaffirmed the views he expressed in the Sunday interview, especially his view that Thomas does not adequately represent black interests.

    “Well if you look at his decisions on the court, they have been adverse to the minority community, and the people I represent have a real issue with an African American not being sensible to those issues,” Thompson told CNN’s Dana Bash.

    When questioned whether that term was racially-charged, Thompson said it reflected the “truth.”

    When Bash further questioned Thompson on what the reaction would’ve been if he had been white, Thompson simply shot back, “But I’m black.”
Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.
