doesn't know the racist overtones of the word "uppity."
Here's a quote from Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-Georgia):
Just from what little I’ve seen of her [Michelle Obama - CB] and Mr. Obama, Sen. Obama, they're a member of an elitist-class individual that thinks that they're uppity.
Republicans have been flirting with the "uppity" image for a while, I just never thought that one of them would be brazen enough to actually use the word, use it on the record, and then clarify that yes, in fact he used it and meant to use it.
That's some racist shit.
Republicans to the Obamas: Get back in your place!
