Fear of a Mulatto Planet

Burnishing his credentials as a Hall of Fame asshole, newly released tapes reveal President Richard Nixon would have preferred Barack Obama, Tiger Woods and Halle Berry - to name a few - never existed.

Nixon worried that greater access to abortions would foster “permissiveness,” and said that “it breaks the family.” But he also saw a need for abortion in some cases —like interracial pregnancies, he said.

“There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white,” he told an aide, before adding, “Or a rape.”

That's racism we can believe in.

Why am I not surprised?

Yeah. I mean, if I found out that he had planned to set up internment camps around the country for his list of "enemies," I really wouldn't be surprised at this point.

It says a lot about how far we've come as a country that this dude was able to make it into the White House.

But then again, Dubya won an election. At least once.

Wow - missed your responses on this one!

Lol at the "internment camps" around the country. Seriously though, those plans will be revealed in the next round of taped conversations that are released.
