I screwed up and did not do sufficient research. Does anyone know how you delete a YouTube from a thread?

I don't think he's either, I just think he misspoke.

This really is typical fodder for Fox News and their cable brethren: a perfectly innocent statement of unwavered support behind Obama, but because one word came out wrong, it's going to dominate headlines.

Can't. Wait.

Replace "this" with "a" and there's no problem.

No biggie. One needs to consider the intent.

Look I have just as much disdain for Fox as anyone, but Fox did not force the man to make this error. It is an egregious error and he should not get away with it just because he is a Democrat.

I just meant that he deserves the media negative exposure due to this error.

I saw the interview on PBS last night. He was effusive in his praise and talked a lot about growing up with black friends and seeing the horrible effects of racial inequality.

In the clip he's talking about how amazing it is that a black kid can grow up and become President. Nothing more, nothing less.

Since he was alluding to Obama's childhood, it shouldn't be the end of the world.

Is "boy" a loaded word? Of course. No argument. But it's not like Carter dropped the "boy" without any sort of logical context.

I agree. It's not like he said, "White n*gger" or anything.

A person at work sent this to me and I did not have the context. Still "this young black child" or "this young black male" would have avoided the potential for the misuse of the quote.

YouTube wasn't the one who forced you to make this thread without further investigating the interview and what was said by Carter.

Apparently, calling a black man a "boy" can be seen as derogatory. I've heard of this once - I think one athlete called another athlete "boy" and there was some tension.

Carter was not saying anything derogatory. His like and admiration for Obama is obvious.
