Racist hate speech against "white suburban moms"?

Proving once again that any controversy will be intensified -- if not illuminated -- by random references to race, class, and gender, Education Secretary Arne Duncan has ignited a storm of protest by noting opposition from "white suburban moms" to one of his prized educational initiatives.

In a meeting with state education chiefs Friday, Duncan said some opposition to the Common Core State Standards -- a controversial effort to standardize education -- has come from parents displeased that test results have exposed local weaknesses. Duncan said he found it "fascinating" that opponents include "white suburban moms who -- all of a sudden -- (discovered that) their child isn't as bright as they thought they were, and their school isn't quite as good as they thought they were."

Duncan apologzied Monday afternoon for the remark.
Speaking to CNN, Duncan said: "My wording, my phrasing, was a little clumsy and I apologize for that."

Duncan is an ultra-Leftist of the first order, and a totally devoted Obamunist.

Of course it's not racist because THEY said it. The same way Cher calling Sarah Palin a c..t is not part of the war on women or Martin Bashir says someone should p..s and s..t in Sarah Palin's mouth isn't. Haven't heard anything from Barrack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reed, Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton,the leftist media or NOW denouncing their comments. But see what happened to Incognito for using the N word.

The last Pope and his underlings helped numerous pedos abuse even more numerous kids. What authority could condemn the Papacy or the RC Church, although it seems there's been an internal Vatican Palace coup.
