Ms Ferraro, who sits on Senator Clinton's finance committee and has spoken at her rallies, sparked the firestorm when she was quoted by a California newspaper as saying:
"If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position...He happens to be very lucky to be who he is."
Speaking on Fox News, she refused to apologise, accused the Senator Obama campaign of waging a hate campaign against her, and reiterated that the candidate's political success was "in large measure because he is black."
Preach it, sister! Someone had to speak up, and thank God Geraldine Ferraro had the fortitude to do so! Ever since the black man stole our ancestors from Europe and enslaved them in America, they've been trying to keep white folk down. The black man has had it too good in this country for too long! Truth to power, Ms. Ferraro, truth to power.
But they can't keep us down anymore! Some folks say America isn't ready for a white president, but I say have you seen the numbers for McCain and Clinton? The time is now! And come 2009, we may finally, finally, after walking the long hard road, see a white person in the White House!
