From News One: This year has come and gone, but unfortunately, racism is here to stay. Our black president has given racists a good target in the political realm, but we still see racism from teachers, police officers and even athletes. Here are the top 10 racist quotes of 2011.

 

10. Ann Coulter says, "Our blacks are better than their's"

 

When comparing Herman Cain to President Barack Obama, Coultier (pictured right) made a statement that could have been made by a slave owner. Does the Republican party own "blacks" and what exactly makes your "blacks" better than African-American Democrats? Her statement was both racist and condescending.

 

9. Pat Buchanan says, "Blacks bought a lot of propaganda on the liberal plantation."

 

Making a slavery reference to justify why African-Americans support Democrats, Buchanan used language also parroted by black republicans, Allen West and Herman Cain, comparing modern day African-Americans to slaves who weren't allowed or empowered to make their own political decisions.

 

8. NYPD Officers call "[West Indian carnival-goers are] savages, animals," and says, "[Someone should] drop a bomb and wipe them all out."

 

NYPD officers complained about West Indian Day carnival duty in Brooklyn on Facebook and then disparaged, belittled, and dehumanized them, despite the fact that the NYPD fired more shots on the day of the parade than any parade-goer.

1. Republican Says Blacks Are In Prison Because They Don’t Want To Study


Sally Kern, a Republican state senator from Oklahoma, said that the reason African-American males are in prison is because they don’t want to study in school:

We have a high percentage of blacks in prison, and that’s tragic, but are they in prison just because they are black or because they don’t want to study as hard in school? I’ve taught school, and I saw a lot of people of color who didn’t study hard because they said the government would take care of them.

Brent Bozell, the president of the Media Research Center, appeared on Fox News and said the President of the United States "looked like a skinny ghetto crackhead."

 

Bozell was talking with Mark Steyn -- filling in for Sean Hannity -- about MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, who said in March that GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich looks like a car bomber.

After Steyn joked that Gingrich just looked like a "big, ugly, slightly older Winnie the Pooh," Bozell wondered how long Hannity’s show would last “if four times in one sentence [Hannity] made a comment about, say, the President of the United States and said he looked like a skinny ghetto crackhead."

You know what?  My dad hated Jimmie Walker's character J.J. on "Good Times" because he was buffoonish as hell on the show.  And seeing him in that photo with Ann "The Tran" Coulter (and her huge adam's apple), makes me realize that, my dad was right!  He was ahead of his time.

I would say the blotches on his skin is from years of trying to wipe the "blackface" minstrel makeup off his face, for acting like a ghetto Stepin Fetchit, but I digress.

EUR Exclusive: Jimmie Walker on Relationship with Ann Coulter.

 

*In a recent interview, Jimmie Walker went on and on…and on about the love he has for his best friend Ann Coulter. Let’s take a moment to let that marinate.

 

“Ann is Ann,” the “Good Times” star told EUR’s Lee Bailey. “She’s a great woman, I have nothing but good things to say about her.”

 

Using words like “adorable” and “sweet” to describe the right wing talk show host, known for using racist rhetoric in discussing her conservative views, Walker brushes off her polarizing antics as part of her pundit persona.

 

“She does the Ann stuff,” Walker concedes. “But she’s just a beautiful person. I adore her. …She’s a very, very nice person and I’m lucky to know her.

 

“I have nothing but the highest respect for her, and I’m thoroughly impressed with everything she does – whether she’s writing Sarah Palin stuff or doing whatever,” he continued. “I’m thoroughly impressed with her.”

 

So does that mean Walker shares her political views?

 

 

“No, you know, Ann does what she does when she works for Fox, obviously. But she’s not just Fox,” he says. “She’s other things, too. She’s extremely bright, she’s beautiful and I’m honored to have anything to do with her.”

 

Walker lavished his repeated praise with a straight face and appeared to be serious about their relationship, as numerous photos of the two together at various events suggests.

 

His “Good Times” co-star Bern Nadette Stanis ("Thelma") was sitting next to him during the interview and co-signed his sentiments, even going so far to say she believes Jimmie and Coulter are actually dating.

 

“The best of friends, truly, they are close,” Stanis said, although sounding a bit tongue-in-cheek. She then whispered to Walker, “I was gonna say what you call her – but you can’t say it on TV.”
