Last week, on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC talk show, guest Pat Buchanan made the bonehead move of using the term “boy” in reference to President Obama. Admittedly, it was an inconceivably stupid thing to say. But the reference was far from what it was made out to be. At what point does offense become automatic, more a gut reaction with little to no context considered? And should we even be offended when something comes out of a staged circumstance like pitting two shameless opportunists like Sharpton and Buchanan on the air together?
