Left wing White House reporter Helen Thomas was recently forced to issue an apology to African American citizens. She stated bluntly, in front of a live microphone, that blacks should “get the hell out of America.”

Thomas is a longtime White House correspondent who writes a column for Hearst newspapers. She made the comments on May 27th after a White House African American History event.

Thomas was asked by a black reporter if she had “any comments on African Americans.” She replied, “Tell them to get the hell out of America.”

Thomas went on to say that decent white Americans are burdened by the presence of blacks “and it’s the Caucasian-American’s land, not the African American’s.” She went on to say that black people should “go home to Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Uganda, and everywhere else they came from.”

In a written statement issued Friday, Thomas apologized, saying, “I deeply regret the comments I made last week regarding colored people.” She also said the comments do not reflect her “heart-felt belief that racial harmony will come to America when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance.”

“May that day come soon,” she later added.

Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia was asked for his reaction to Thomas’ controversial remarks. According to a reporter from Black Entertainment Television, the former Klansman said that Thomas’ remarks were “unfortunate.” He went on to say “There are a lot of whites in America who act black. They should also get the hell out of the country. It isn’t fair to focus solely on black Americans.”

The Reverend Al Sharpton, when reached for comment, called the comments “unforgivable.” A reporter for Jewish World then confronted Sharpton with a number of anti-Semitic statements attributed to him. Sharpton denied characterizing Jews as “kikes” and “blood suckers” saying that the statements were probably made by Louis Farrakhan or Jesse Jackson. He went on to say the following:

“I’ve said similar things in the past but I don’t think it really matters whether those statements were made by Lou, Jesse, or me. We are talking about blacks, here. The Jews control everything including the banks and the media. They can fend for themselves. Blacks don’t control anything, so what you call a ‘double standard’ is justified.”

He then characterized the Jewish reporter’s question as “cheap” and “underhanded.”
