lindsay_lohan_breasts.jpgOn the election of Barack Obama:

“It’s an amazing feeling. It’s our first, you know, colored president,” the 22-year-old actress said in response to a question from Maria Menounos on “Access Hollywood” about her reaction to Obama’s win in the 2008 presidential race.


… Lindsay Lohan


Colored? What is this, 1959? That’s some old-school racial slurring. How did she even pick up that term? From her racist grandmother?

Off to racist rehab for her.

While some plead lenience on Daniel Craig for being a Brit, I think he at least merits the same level of public excoriation for his use of the same term: http://defamer.com/5082494/is-an-obama-world-ready-for-a-black-007-or-a-bootylicious-wonder-woman

Also, I'm sure you can find a better link for this story than Fox News. It's not like they're the most enlightened channel in the world when it comes to slurs: http://www.quizlaw.com/blog/baby_mama_defined.php

I really want to dislike her more, but I get the feeling that there wasn't any racial animus here; she just might be kinda dumb.

Also, and I feel I must say this, sweater puppies.

I think she was trying to be cool by saying "person of color" but all the tanning solution has fried her brain, that's right it was the spray tan not the blow that did it.

Sounds like somebody misses writing for WIMB!

i always take it with a grain of salt when people say "colored." usually i hear it from old people, like my french grandmother who's 84, love people of all color and sexual orientation, but lacks the current racial nomenclature. i agree with andre's post that lindsey lohan, while i'm never looking for a reason to defend her, is more stupid than flat out racist. did any of you read the salon story about racists for obama? when asked who they were voting for, some southerners replied "we're voting for the nigger." LL's slip is certainly not as bad, but it's similar in that some people are just developing their understanding of racial equality, but their vocabularies have yet to catch up.

To answer your question (How did she even pick up that term?) - maybe she got it from the NAACP, that is, the National Association for the Advancement of COLORED people.
