I've always thought I was kind of funny though...

There is really nothing acceptable or defensible about what this guy did.

Re: "Barack the Magic Negro"

It should be noted that the phrase "The Magic Negro" originated in an opinion piece in the LA Times by David Ehrenstein back in March of 2007.

So it wasn't the Republicans who came up with the term. The guy who writes parodies for the Rush Limbaugh show simply took the term Ehrenstein came up with made a stupid song out of it.

I keep hearing this line of thought...we're just creating a parody based on presumably liberal not so racist L.A. Times writer. This fact alone makes the whole thing inoffensive. If anything we should all get together, have a sing-along and a laugh. People are putting too much stock in what the term "Magic Negro" means, the lyrics of the song, and Rush "Fountain of Wisdom" Limbaugh. We're getting too PC in this country and it's sad.
