info@islandpacket.comFebruary 20, 2013 

Rep. Jim Clyburn's recent statement that he wants to help President Barack Obama show that a black man can lead the nation and demonstrate that "people of color can be good Congress people" is an insult to African-Americans and others.

It also misses the point that it's not Obama's race that makes him incompetent.
