Is there a double standard for Democrats? Harry Reid Negro Dialect & Byrd uses N-word and they get forgiven?
REPUBLICAN Senate Majority leader Trent Lott said: I want to say this about my state. When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We’re proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn’t have had all these problems over all these years either. NOW at the time Thurmond ran on a racist platform and Trent Lott was pounded on by Democrats till he stepped down as majority leader. His intent was to make an old man on his 100th birthday feel good.
DEMOCRATS – Forgiveness has already been given for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for his comments about Obama being a “a good black candidate because he is light skinned and does not speak with a NEGRO dialect EXCEPT when he wants to”

There is not a shred of outcry by the Democrats at any level including Mr. offended Al Sharpton.
On March 4, 2001, an interview with FOX News Sunday host Tony Snow interviewed Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia. The man used the N-word repeatedly during the interview. Having been a former KKK member as well has not brought any condemnation or outrage from the Democrats.
SO Questions –
Should HARRY REID be asked to Step Down like TRENT LOTT?
Is this just more evidence that there is a double standard for Democrats vs Republican?
Is Harry Reid a racist and being given the usual Democrat pass like Robert Byrd’s?
Are the Republicans justified in calling for the same standard as used on Lott or being political and not justified in their calls for equal justice?
Are the Democrats by quickly forgiving proving the double standard?
So far proving my point – double standard excuses
