Your lying eyes and ears

From the Department of Unintended Irony, Marc Bean denies use of racial rhetoric through the use of racial rhetoric.

Just to be clear, don't believe your lying eyes and ears, none of the following terms were racial rhetoric:

  • "Uncle Tom's"
  • "House N**gers"
  • "They want to lock us all up"
  • "Back to the Plantation"
  • "We must hasten to employ measures which ensure that our people and our children know that a UBP vote is a vote back to the plantation. It is a vote that will return the shackles to our feet!"
  • "The Auditor General's behaviour indicates that he shares the all-too-common belief that people of African descent are illiterate and chained in darkness, and for them to have any type of success, they must be duly humble and suitably subservient," said Mr. Burgess.
  • "I wouldn't call the member a racist dog because I can see he's not a dog."

Clearly not racial rhetoric.
