Um, no. You can't make that one "right".

Translation: I am sorry I got recorded saying how I actually feel so here's a half assed apology.

"Careless and unnecessary?" He's letting himself off easy.

Careless? Careless is leaving the iron on, or forgetting to lock the door. When the first thing your brain does is associate black people with Aborigines (used as a derogatory term) that isn't careless. That's you being a fucking jackass. That's you being the YOU you really are, and now you're pissed somebody heard it.

Fuck him and his apology. He'll just watch for recorders now when he goes off on his racist shit, but he's still the same prick.

This is a classic sorry I got caught apology. Really telling, and from what I've read the guy has a history of saying nasty shit about minorities.

Apology not accepted.

I suppose "unnecessary" refers to saying it out loud. I wonder what he does think is necessary?

I sorry, Senator. The words we were looking for were “wrongheaded and incorrect”, not that those would have really excused the original comments. Now then, please don't come back and try again!

The term "aborigine" referred to indigenous black people from Australia (i.e. the people there first, long before white settlers). So how in the world could you think it a fitting descriptor for American blacks, whose ancestors were wrenched from their native lands and brought here by force?

So not only were Scott Beason's words bigoted, but herp-derp-drooling ignorant as well. I award him no points, and may God have mercy on his soul o_O

I can't imagine why racial minorities don't find the GOP appealing.. //

They're stuck in the Dem plantation. *rolls eyes*. But yeah there's a good reason why the GOP by and large struggles with minority voters.

Aborigines? Well...that's a step up from the N-word. So he's evolving, that's good. Now we just have to prod him into the 20th century, then it's just a short hop to 2011. Soon he'll be a fully realized modern human being.

Exactly, "aboriginal" is literally indigenous to place--hence the "you mean Indians" reciprocal statement. This was not a flub, he was being racist, with a healing side of contempt for "primitive" people.

I think he needs some multicultural sensitivity training. In Arnhem Land.
