Don’t Tell Me, ‘Cause It Hurts

The Honduran Foreign Minister apologized for calling Barack Obama “a little black man who doesn’t know where Tegucigalpa is located.”

The foreign relations minister in Honduras’ interim government says he has sent a letter to Barack Obama apologizing for a racial comment he made about the U.S. president.

Enrique Ortez says the letter expresses “his most profound apologies” for “an unfortunate comment.”

In a TV interview, Ortez said Obama “is a little black man who doesn’t know where Tegucigalpa is located.”

Ortez says the remark made before he was named to the post was not meant to offend anyone.

Emphasis mine. I still think Rusty DePass’s response to the outrage that greeted his “joke” likening Michelle Obama to a gorilla leaves Ortez in the dust.
