Racism/sexism quick roundup

1. MSNBC and CNBC personality Donny Deutsch called Republican Senate candidate Marco Rubio a "coconut." Mr. Deutsch claims:
I said "coconut" meaning simple, goofy, bananas...wasn't even aware it could be a racially charged word
"Coconut" is an anti-Latino/Pacific Islander/Filipino slur and Mr. Deutsch just happened to use the word when referring to a Latino?

2. On the sexism front, Sen. Reid has determined that:
Men, when they're out of work, tend to become abusive'
3. On Tuesday’s Countdown show, host Keith Olbermann accused both tea partiers and Fox News of racism. He said this despite the lack of racial diversity among primetime hosts at his network.

4. Last month, you may remember Chris Matthews commenting on Pres. Obama's State of the Union address: "I forgot he was black." John Hinderaker observes:
One of the differences between liberals and conservatives is that many liberals are obsessed by race, while conservatives, in general, rarely think about it.
5. Mass murderers, black conservatives: what's the difference? Not much, according to one of the Washington Post's blogs. Jim Hoft explains:
The Washington Post’s “The Root” blog posted a piece on “Black Folks We’d Like to Remove From Black History.” The list lumps noted mass murderers Idi Amin, Robert Mugabe and John Allen Muhammad along with Clarence Thomas, Alan Keyes and Michael Steele. They forgot about Condi.
