It seems Homeboy Paulie has had a taste of some Mmmm, Mmmm, brown sugar.
As reported on Twitter by CNN's Pete Hamby, Ryan said he has a black sister-in-law, but perhaps even more interesting, his "college sweetheart" was African American.
He didn't marry her though. Probably another white dude who wanted to know what it was like to get a black girl into bed. Truly, a Republican cliche...and when you think about it, a Democrat one as well.
So what does this prove? That the people making a big deal out of it are racist?
But was she black black?
Why the hell would it matter OP? Unless he has expressed racist sentiments, I cant see why anyone would care.
You werent suggesting that this is a reason not to vote for him were you? Because if you were then you are a complete imbecile. Theres plenty of reason not to vote for that ticket and an interracial relationship isnt one of them!
Nothing bad, it was good. Ryan had the best girl he could. But when he took her home to meet his mama and papa, Ryan knew just where he stood.
Dance with danger when you taste brown sugar...
R1 is correct.
He didn't marry a girl he dated in school, so that definitely proves he's a racist, and his family hates black people. Thanks for posting OP.
Works the PX90, drags his mom to functions, dated a black girl....
Hmm. Are we barking up the wrong tree?
I still wouldn't do him.
Ryan's probably a closet case. There are so many closeted ReThugs, it's mind boggling. I worked with a few.
The most obvious public closet case is Crazy-Eyed Michelle Bachmann's husband. ReThugs are bunch of freaks, liars and hypocrites.
I don't care who Paul Ryan dated, he could have dated an old moldy shoe for all I care, he's a weird, misogynistic, lying ReThuglican and that should be enough to turn any gay person off.
Blackest Berry Make the Sweetest Juice, my milkshake is good one thing my mom gave me...Black Girl
Shows intelligent people are NOT racist.
Like Michelle Obama, an uppity black woman who married a half white, light skinned black dude to increase her status.
This happens all the time
Once you've had black, it's hard to go back.
Fuck off r12. Go back to your cave.
Was she a legitimate black?

More about this, R8. Do you suspect Ryan? Who else that isn't typically mentioned or pingy do you suspect? BTW, I completely believe you.
Hmmmm - there goes any Democratic strategy of painting him as a racist. Makes him a kindred spirit with Obama - a fellow white man (half) nailing a black woman.
Have you seen his wife lately?
This is an interesting development, and it's trending #1 at Yahoo!
I honestly don't know what to make of it. On the one hand, it shows that he's open-minded and not your traditional Republican bigot.
On the other hand, he's still a Republican asshole who although he doesn't hate blacks, he does hate the elderly, the uninsured, and poor people.
So in essence, he's still a jerk.
50/50 chance he is gay.
Does she really exist? Let's meet her.
R21: I'd take 70/30.
I think a comment made to me on this subject years ago, by my INCREDIBLY racist and right-wing Republicunt step-grandmother, probably fits the sentiments of most of her fellow racist assholes: "It's fine to play around with one" (meaning a black girl - she said this to me when I was in college) " ... just don't bring her home." (As in "don't even THINK of marrying that negress!")
This was actually best summed up by Blair Warner on an episode of "Facts Of Life" many decades ago: "There are girls you marry and girls you...don't".

Are you suggesting the Ryan is intelligent?
Since he didn't marry her, the wingnuts will generously forgive him for dating outside the master race. And they'll use her as proof that they aren't racists.
I hope she speaks out against him.
Mark Fuhrman dated a black woman before the OJ trial. Wasn't this presented as evidence that he's not racist? He now lives in the Idaho panhandle.
Good question/point, R22. Seriously. I didn't think of that, maybe she doesn't. But they can always trot someone out if need be.
I'm disgusted by this man and his beliefs, but I don't give a damn who he's dated. Where is this belief that if a man dates outside of his race he must be closeted coming from? That's incredibly racist, as if only white women are "legitimate" partners. If a white man is married to a white woman, then comes out and starts to date outside of his race, what does that say about him? These backwards rules of yours seem arbitrary.
R31, it's a common belief in many gay circles of all races.
How about the crazy idea that someone can be a perfectly good person, with a normal dating history, but we jut disagree with his philosophy and do not want him to govern us?
doesn't he have an illegitimate kid that he has nothing to do with?

They're coming from a handful of wishful-thinkers. No rational person thinks Ryan is gay, and CERTAINLY not that dating a black woman is a sign of living in the closet (well, unless you're Big Gay Al Reynolds and marry Star Jones). I don't think anyone here gives a damn who he's dated, either, but that's not the point; his racist/redneck/uptight Republican base supporters very much DO give a damn who he's dated, and the fact that he dated a black woman lowers him in their pathetic view.
"doesn't he have an illegitimate kid that he has nothing to do with?"
No, that's Gov. Scott Walker. It enrages me that not only the mainstream media but the tabloids refuse to follow up on that. It's true. It happened. Every reporter at the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel knows it. But oh, they can't report on "personal matters." FUCK THEM.
R26 Ryan is smart as hell. People that believe he hates the elderly prove that the press does all the thinking for most people. Medicare is in trouble. Congress has been robbing Meficare for years. It can not last like it is. Just wait till you are 65 and try to find a doctor that will still take Medicare. Most won't take a new Medicare pt now. The Democrat answer is to ignore it and use the issue to scare people instead of fixing it.
Congress has been overfunding Medicare for years. Doctors are legally entitled only to about 80% of what they've been getting, and even that is too high because they've been allowed to raise prices 7% per year when inflation in the rest of the country has been flat.
It's not wishful thinking. Men whose families would not accept gays, but who would be offended but accepted interracial dating, are often presented with the black girlfriend as the first step on the road to accepting gaydom.

How about, for forty years we've been faced with a Republican party that will break any law, commit any violence, and throw out the Constitution in order to win. There is no opposition candidate they haven't defamed, libelled, and slandered in that time. They have attempted to select and identify even the young leaders on the left, so they could target them for personal character assassination, targeting them with fake performance reviews, fake neighbor complaints, fake liens on their credit, employment blacklists, you name it. They picked Bill Clinton for destruction because they feared him as a candidate fully ten years before he actually ran. And they are more sophisticated today. They are probably making lists of top College Democrats now, so they can conduct this kind of campaign. Remember, they are a PERMANENT MINORITY party who knows they can only achieve success by taking out the leadership class of the opposition as individuals.
Where is this fabricated girlfriend? This story was throw out for public consumption and no one cares.
