There are few people on this earth that I love more than Abena Agyeman-Fisher, the Senior Editor at NewsOne.  A consummate professional and arguably the leading online journalist in the country, Abena is never someone I would accuse of being a liar.  But this morning, after rolling out of bed and sitting at my desk in my gym shorts, I really thought my colleague might have been hitting the crack pipe.

“Dr. Boyce, Rick Santorum has a video up in which he refers to President Obama as a n*gger,” she said to me.

“What did you say?” I said, as my face twisted up like a newborn baby eating a piece of broccoli.  Even I couldn’t believe what my editor was telling me, and I thought she’d lost her mind.

Then, I saw the video,

Yes, he said it.

I’m sure the Rick Santorum campaign team is strategizing faster than Homeland Security after a terrorist attack to find any BS excuse to convince us that we’re not actually hearing what we can clearly hear.  But the evidence shows that Rick Santorum, who reportedly spoke at the Armory at Janesville, Wisc., on March 27th, is running head first into the word “n*gger” as he describes the first Black president.

I’ve watched this video 14.5 times.  I’ve meditated on it, prayed over it, laid hands on it, and sent it to my mama.   I had to take a moment to thank God that Rick Santorum, in his conservative brilliance, has finally released videotaped evidence of the kind of smoking gun that many millions of us can use to prove that he is every bit as racist as we’ve always known him to be.

This is the same man who said that he would tell Black people to get off of food stamps, and he tends to perform well in states where the citizens don’t like Black people very much.  Santorum serves as yet another reason that millions of conservative African Americans would rather endure their discomfort with Obamacare, gay rights, and abortion than to vote for Republicans who seem to think that we should all be in prisons or on plantations.

If the Republican Party would let go of its commitment to protecting the rich and oppressing minorities, they could get quite a bit of support from the African American church.

“Rick Santorum was written off as a joke in the past, and has only risen again as a result of the resurgence of racism,” said Political Commentator Yvette Carnell.

I’m sure Santorum will have a good explanation for why half of the word “n*gger” slipped out of his mouth as he stumbled over his words to catch himself after his glaring mistake.   After realizing his obvious slip up, Santorum’s rhetoric was as sloppy as a drunken, uneducated rapper trying to explain Astrophysics to the United Nations.  He couldn’t even say the word “boo” without using four syllables, for I’m sure that even his warped little mind suddenly realized that his presidential campaign might be over.

Rick, my friend, you’ve been caught red-handed.   It was only through a random twist of chaotic, discriminatory, counter-productive fate and distorted political reality that someone like you could become a legitimate contender for President of the United States.  From every indication I’ve received,  you are no better than a white Herman Cain.  I look forward to watching your enemies eat you alive, for America has no room for leaders who feel compelled to refer to the President of the United States as a n*gger.
