The Texas Democratic official who called Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., an "oreo" on Twitter last week has resigned from his position following a backlash.

Lamar County Democratic Party chair Gary O’Connor announced his resignation Tuesday in a statement, days after sparking a firestorm online by calling Scott an "oreo" in a since-deleted Facebook post.

O’Connor apologized for targeting Scott with the racial slur, which refers to a Black person who is perceived as acting White.

I must be a really bad racist. I thought an “Oreo” was a biracial person. Goes I need to up my racist vocabulary  ::)

I think I first heard the term as a young kit watching an episode of The Jeffersons. I think it was said by George, as an insult to someone.

According to the Bible, "know" means "yes."

What he said.  I'm pretty sure that's where I first heard it, and it was referencing someone who was mixed, which is how I've usually heard it used since, like Texacon said.

Texas Dem Party Leader Calls Tim Scott Racial Slur, Then Resigns. Texas Dems Won’t Accept His Resignation.

Quote
The Lamar County Democratic Party told The Texas Tribune that they had used the “last few days to reflect upon this incident,” adding, “Lamar County Democrats recommit ourselves to conduct our private conversations and our public social media discussions with anti-racist, pro-reconciling attitudes and language. We strongly condemn bigotry of any kind and will continue our historic efforts to work for justice and equality for all our fellow citizens.”

They condemn bigotry, but won't accept the bigot's resignation?  That is high level doublethink, there.  How do you not accept a resignation anyway?  Are they going to force the guy into work?

Well, apparently he offered his resignation. Didn't actually submit it. Howzat for weaseling through an absolutely stupid (but revealing) statement? Definitely put the "r" in "racist" on that one.

Where is the MSM 24/7 poutrage? Where are the "peaceful" protesters burning and looting....... OH, it was one of their guys.
