Quite a tense video. Mr. Harry C. Alford of the Black Chamber of Commerce charges Senator Boxer (D-CA) with racism for quoting another black community leader, but, in doing so, he reveals his own prejudice in thinking that Boxer (and presumably any other white senator) would only have a black witness testify as a token for his or her race. Sergeant Race Card plays an ignoble act of false indignation and real desperation in his attempt to undermine criticism of his position and questionable expertise.
As much as the GOP is playing this up -- saying that Boxer was being condescending towards a black man -- Boxer came off pretty well. It's not like SGT. Race Card ma'am-ed her or anything...
