In case you missed it, last week on Washington Watch, Michael Steele made a rather colorful comment while being interviewed by Roland Martin on TV One.
After being questioned by Roland Martin about the apparent fear among Republicans of Black people, Steele responded: “You’re absolutely right. I’ve been in the room and they’ve been scared of me!”

What may have started as an off-hand comment in a casual interview turned into internet fodder and this video, which originated right here on NewsOne has gone viral. It even appeared on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart!!
