Digging a hole
Orange County Republican Party central committee member Marilyn Davenport let loose her ‘joke’ on Barac Obamas family where she had a picture of apes dressed up in ‘human’ clothing holding their child with the image of Barac Obamas head posted instead of the apes. She had sent the email to her fellow co-workers as a simple joke. News stories and people twitters accounts were going off the hook. People reading the information were gathering on twitter to voice their opinions. Davenport released one statement, “Everybody who knows me knows that I am not a racist. It was a joke. I have friends who are black,” – a bit socially incorrect don’t you think? Then released a more formal apology, “I am an imperfect Christian lady who tries her best to live a Christ-like honoring life. I would never do anything to intentionally harm or berate others regardless of ethnicity. Everyone who knows me knows that to be true.” Conservative Orange Country Republican activist Tim Whitacre didn’t help when he stated, “Marilyn believes that nobody knows where he was born and so this picture says a thousand words.” Good one team!
