Is Arizona filled with Racists?

Barbara Espinosa calls POTUS a MonkeyOut of Arizona, the state that refused to acknowledge the Martin Luther King Jr holiday that the other 49 states and territories honor, comes yet another racial attack. However, this does not come from those of non-color but from a hispanic woman named Barbara Espinosa. Oh her talk show in Arizona, Ms. Espinosa says she calls President Obama the “The First Monkey President.” Yeah you read it correctly, Monkey, the same racial slur used in all parts of this country decades ago to describe blacks (and apparently still used today).

Ms. Espinosa used this term to describe the POTUS on her Arizona talk show “Hair on Fire,” but when confronted she quoted the definition of monkey and stated how can she be racist with the last name espinosa. Easy, racist come in every color, every ethnicity, it is not just a white issue but everyone issue.

Barbara Espinosa had this to say about her use of the word monkey three times in under a minute on her show:

“To set the record straight I did use the word monkey and Obama in the same sentence. Yes I did say I voted for the white guy. Unless there has been a takeover of America and free speech is no longer allowed and I can be put to death for making a remark, I refuse to take the fifth.”

Ms. Espinosa’s statement has yet to really break into news shows like CNN, HLN, MSNBC but its only a matter of time before they pick up on the story. However several sites across the net have scrutinized, criticized and condemned Ms. Espinosa’s comments. In particular this piece done by addictinginfo.com, bravo on you sirs for your take on this news. If you have not read their story please do so, we borrowed their pictures for this post.
