Recently on C-Span’s show “Washington Journal,” a 90 year old called in to voice her opinion about African Americans.

“I’m 90 years old and I just wanted to ask the colored man, why don’t colored people instead of saying what we did to them, why don’t they say what we did for them? They talk about the slavery but since then they have been given welfare, free medicine, free everything.”

The host quickly cut her off with:

“Ma’am I think this is more of a conversation about the relationship between the administration and the people on Wall Street and not necessarily one that’s based on race.”

To which the caller responded with:

“Oh, okay. I’m not a racist. That was my comment. Thank you.”

Was this lady’s comments racist, or is she saying something that a lot of us have been thinking?
