Here is one of the biggest examples of hypocrisy and double standards I've seen in some time. The head of a civil rights advocacy group wants John Kerry to apologize for saying he wouldn't be upset if he could be known as the second black president. Paula Diane Harris, founder of the Andrew Young National Center for Social Change, said "John Kerry is not a black man - he is a privileged white man who has no idea what it is in this country to be a poor white in this country, let alone a black man". The quote in question is from an interview Kerry gave to American Urban Radio Network in which he said, "President Clinton was often known as the first black president. I wouldn't be upset if I could earn the right to be the second". You know if any Republican, not just Bush, had said something like this the ACLU, NAACP and every black person in the country would be calling them insensitive, racist, bigot and would demand a public apology. Yet, I only happened across this story by dumb luck. Why isn't Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson all over the news calling for Kerry's head?
