This story will not die.
If you will recall, in my first entry regarding the whole Monique Davis/Rob Sherman debacle, I said that Mr. Sherman’s website made him look like a bit of a douche. Mr. Sherman reinforced this impression with this genius quote:
Now that Negroes like Representative Monique Davis have political power, it seems that they have no problem at all with discrimination, just as long as it isn’t them who are being discriminated against.
What the hell?!?
I pulled the quote from Friendly Atheist, as Mr. Sherman at least had the good sense to eventually take the quote down. For a more thorough recap of all the ridiculousness you might want to check them out.
The whole thing just sucks. Rep. Davis’ comments last week were ignorant. Mr. Sherman’s response was downright stupid. Nobody wins.
I’m really angry Sherman is the “atheist spokesman” because he’s always been an idiot. He’s very selfish. Atheists do better when represented by Humanists, not weird suburbanites who have warped White Christian Entitlement to fit into an atheist mold.
Negroes? Jesus Christ.
