Check out Ralph Nader

Mind your manners, Ralph.
Speaking Wednesday night at a Washington fund-raiser to retire the debt from his 2004 presidential campaign, Nader complained that Democratic Party powerbrokers had kept him off the ballot in such Southern states as Georgia and Virginia - which reminded him of the oppressive Jim Crow laws that denied African-Americans equal rights.

"I felt like a [n-word]," remarked the 70-year-old white multimillionaire graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School.

Why does Rev. Al Sharpton get to decide which white guys can get off with a "wrist slap" and which ones get a full-blown Sharpton-led protest? Anyone know?
