Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid apologized today for his racist remarks about Barack Obama.
The Fix reported:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) apologized today for referring to President Barack Obama as “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect” in private conversations during the 2008 presidential campaign.

“I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words,” said Reid in a statement. “I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African Americans for my improper comments.”

The Senate Majority Leader was officially neutral in the primary fight between Obama and then Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.). Reid’s remarks about Obama were revealed in “Game Change“, a book detailing the 2008 race penned by Time’s Mark Halperin and New York magazine’s John Heilemann.

The details about Reid’s remarks were first reported by the Atlantic.

It’s not the first time Reid was accused of racism. In 2009 Harry Reid was forced to defend his support for African-American politicians in a testy exchange with David Gregory on “Meet the Press” after it was disclosed that he had opposed three other black potential replaces for President-elect Barack Obama.
