Rush Limbaugh Offers a Helpful Antidote to Racism

Yesterday, on his radio show.

...but he's not black...He's Arab.
I had you all wrong, Rush. And all this time I had accused you of cheapening the national discourse.

(Note for context mavens - here's more context.)

LIMBAUGH: These polls on how one-third of blue-collar white Democrats won't vote for Obama because he's black, and -- but he's not black. Do you know he has not one shred of African-American blood? He doesn't have any African -- that's why when they asked whether he was authentic, whether he's down for the struggle. He's Arab. You know, he's from Africa. He's from Arab parts of Africa. He's not -- his father was -- he's not African-American. The last thing that he is is African-American. I guess that's splitting hairs, I don't -- it's just all these little things, everything seems upside-down today in this country.
Hat tip to Media Matters!
