GO Harry C. Alford!
Barbara Boxer says that the head of the NAACP would be "proud" to testify before her. Just as he would be "proud" of Alford being allowed to testify before her greatness. Alford calls her up on it and says that she's being condescending to him. Um, no kidding. Just look at the TONE this woman uses with him. Tell you what. I can disagree with you, but if you were to call me in to testify before you and tell me some other Irish-American group would be all "proud" that I was allowed to talk before you, I'd say something similar to what Alford says here. "I don't like it," he tells her. "It's racial. I don't like it. I take offense to it. As an African-American, and a veteran of this country, I take offense to it!" Yep. How about we talk about the merits (or lack thereof) of Alford's arguments instead of chatting about how proud he should be because she graciously allowed a black man in her presence? Offensive!
