Charlie Rangel's "White Cracker" Conundrum

The New York congressman's use of a racial slur was really a "term of endearment," he says, after racist 
allegations re-surfaced about his 2013 comment calling Tea Party members "white crackers." Although 
he apologized, Rangel noted the hypocracy of "mean-spirited people that bomb and kill people, set 
dogs on them, lynch people, and still refuse to believe that we’re suffering the pain from this — they 
can say that guy makes a lot of sense but he had no business calling us a white cracker."
