How apt:
Hickory congressman uses paint job to whitewash racially charged comments U.S. Rep. Cass Ballenger, anticipating fallout from a newspaper interview in which he said he had “segregationist feelings” after conflicts with a black colleague, decided to have his yard's black lawn jockey painted white Friday. “It was painted with the knowledge that he was attacked in the past for it, and it was likely to come up again,” said Dan Gurley, Ballenger's chief of staff. The 3 1/2-foot tall cast iron statue has been in Ballenger's family since the 1920s. It has stood on the Northwest Hickory property since the 1950s when Ballenger built a house there. The lawn jockey issue comes up every election, Gurley said.
It is not surprising that Ballenger thinks that painting a lawn jockey white is sufficient to make up for his comments. The Republican party thinks that all they have to do is get rid of Trent Lott and everyone will think they are repulsed by the idea of racism or appeals to racism. Sorry guys, that only works with the establishment media. The jockey may be painted white, but it is still black underneath. Lott may no longer be majority leader, but the GOP is still rolling around with cockroaches under the sheets.
