EDIT: The article has been edited to reflect an attitude of curiosity rather than one of accusation. After re-listening to Christie we are not convinced he was being racist either. It should also be noted that we did not make this video. We urge you to watch and judge for yourself.
At a town hall meeting at a church this week in Paterson, NJ, Governor Christie may have called an African-American man a “boy.” This could spell serious trouble for the New Jersey Governor for a number of obvious reasons. In the past Christie has admitted that words are important saying:
“Language matters; language is a window into attitude.”
Watch the video and judge for yourself. Was he really being racist or using “boy” in the same way someone would say, “Boy, it sure is hot out here”? Let us know what you think in the comments below:
