Gov. Chris Christie calls African-American man ‘boy’ during town hall meeting

The GOP racists are really coming out of the woodwork...........

He never could restrain himself...

I wonder why he didn't say "I hear you, sir, yeah, I hear ya" (with a smarmy smile) like politicians usually do?

"You're a racist for calling me a racist! Only racists think about racism! Why are you trying to make something of nothing? Only racists make something of nothing! Do you hear me, boy?"

I think it's a pretty cheap shot. I'm sure I've said "boy" in conversation to lots of peolpe, all white. There are lots of reasons to criticize Christie, but I don't think this is serious.

Typical racist right winger showing their true colors. I never jumped on the Dem's "we luv Christie" bandwagon.

Good thing, r7; the wheels on that thing are strained enough already.

While I'm certainly no fan of The Fat One - I'll be in that (I fear only) 40% who will vote for Barbara Buono come November - I'm not convinced he meant "boy" in that way, as a noun. I think he meant boy the way some people say "boy oh boy."

However . . .

What [italic]should[/should] be discussed is what he said to the press when he recently referred to Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver over her blocking an Assembly vote on a particular education issue, when he argued her position should be otherwise given she's an African American woman representing East Orange & Orange.

As Oliver later bristled, her positions are based on her beliefs, not on her race or gender.

BTW, both of Christie's battles - with the deacon in Paterson and with Oliver - are over the stupid issue of charter schools and vouchers, an issue revered by NJ Republicans.

BTW, at the link is a newsclip of the struggle The Fat One faced at the Paterson town hall meeting. (And BTW, I should add that Paterson's schools are run by the state.)

Oh, just call him a big fat fatty back.
