So by now, you've probably heard about Senator Ted Cruz's comment stating that the obamacare website was created by Nigerian e-mail scam artist and you've probably also heard that he has now issued an apology also stating in part that his wife spent part of her life in Nigeria and so he couldn't have meant any harm....
Ok he didn't say so he couldn't have meant any harm but you get the gist. It's the good ole I have black friends so I'm not racist bit.
By the way, I'm Nigerian and I was not offended by what he said. I'm not a 419 criminal so it was pretty obvious to me that he was not talking about me when he made the comment. However, quite a few Nigerians were offended and the Senator has now apoligised.
