• Rangel: I’m Not Obsessed with Race, But Can We Please Talk About Guns?

    If you believe Congressman Charlie Rangel is a typical race-hustler, well…you’d be absolutely right. But that doesn’t mean this Harlem Democrat will cop to it.

    Rangel sat down with MSNBC this morning to discuss the police killings in New York, where he lamented that “some people” think he links everything to racism. To prove that it’s not the case, he decided to instead link the killings to…wait for it…gun control, of course!

    And then, the true irony. Only an hour and a half later, Rangel hopped over to a rival cable news network and surprised us all…by bringing up RACISM. That’s right; it was mere moments after he insisted that he’s not race-obsessed.

    You can’t make this stuff up. Check out the video above, where we’ve pasted together the highlights from both appearances.
