This exchange took place in a Paterson, New Jersey church during a town hall meeting. Governor Chris Christie said this in response to an African American man who yelled out, “Fix the public schools!”
“You can yell all you want about ‘Fix the public schools.’ Yeah, I hear you, boy, I hear you.”
So was Christie calling the man “Boy,” or was he saying, “Boy, I hear you” as in, boy oh boy?
You tell me. My feeling is that, even if he didn’t mean to offend, he could have chosen his words more carefully to avoid any misunderstanding. What he did was insensitive and showed a need for more, erm, self-awareness, not exactly his forte.
HuffPo has more, including this:
At the same event, Christie referred to Democratic Speaker Sheila Oliver only by her race and gender, prompting the pastor at the church to demand an apology.
Meanwhile, please take another look at why Chris Christie really is, and never has been, the “moderate” people say he is: Enough about what a great Democrat Chris Christie would make, okay? and VIDEO: Chris Christie not conservative? Bull pucky. Check out his record and Think for yourself. Ask questions. Do your homework.
Boy oh boy, is he not Democrat material.
