Why did Obama give a eulogy for former exalted cyclopes of the KKK Robert Byrd if he isn't a dirty Uncle Tom?

    Hillary regarded Byrd as her "friend and mentor".

    Maybe she put in a good word?

    Obama’s grandfather on his moms side was a registered member of the KKK that’s why Barry dislikes honky’s like us

    People change. Its pretty good he did before he died while the stain and stench of racism and hate lives and breathes inside the Republican Party. And because they want to keep their evil secrets hidden they are risking this nation to do so.

    Because Byrd repudiated the KKK, apologized for his actions, and spent the rest of his life working towards civil rights. Many black leaders praised him for his work.

    It must be so freeing to be a conservative, not worrying about knowing what the $#@! you're talking about most of the time.

      Lol, sure you will. As if Trump or his supporters ever apologize for anything.

      Show real regret like Byrd, and you get forgiven. Continue to act like a**holes, and you don't.

      Seems fair to me!

    because the guy spent 50 years repenting the mistake he made. What part of that don't you get?

      black people forgave him, why can't you? You must have forgiven trump for a multitude of sins in order to vote for hiim.
