10. Ann Coulter says, “Our blacks are better than their’s”
When comparing Herman Cain to President Barack Obama, Coultier (pictured right) made a statement that could have been made by a slave owner.

9. Pat Buchanan says, “Blacks bought a lot of propaganda on the liberal plantation.”
Making a slavery reference to justify why African-Americans support Democrats, Buchanan used language also parroted by black republicans, Allen West and Herman Cain, comparing modern day African-Americans to slaves who weren’t allowed or empowered to make their own political decisions.
8. NYPD Officers call ”[West Indian carnival-goers are] savages, animals,” and says, ”[Someone should] drop a bomb and wipe them all out.”
