Forget that. Chris Christie should be apologizing to the poor soul that has to clean and wash his soiled underpants.

"Democratic Speaker Sheila Oliver later said she was "appalled" that Christie injected race into the discussion"

All Christie did was accurately and politely describe Ms. Oliver as an "African-American female speaker of the Assembly."

On the other hand, it might not be a bad idea for Christie to apologize just to keep what's left of Camden's business district from being burned to the ground during what weather experts are predicting to be ...

a long, hot summer.

Don't apologize Christie, if we keep doing that every time someone demands, this problem will never go away.

I'm getting real tired of magazines, news agencies, corporations, organizations all apologizing because someone says they were offended. STOP IT

Ignore the idiots, stop coddling them and maybe one day they will just shut up.

How they got this far in life without realizing it's okay to be offended at times, it's part of life. But you don't get to demand apologies and whine about it to the world. You are no more special than the rest of the people.

Guess she feels ashamed of her race if she got offend because Christie called her an "African American", but then again who wouldn't feel ashamed, they destroyed Detriot and are chimping out in Brooklyn.

I feel that Christie should apologize because his actions were unprofessional. Race and gender had nothing to do with the subject matter. Christie should have referred to Oliver as her legal name. Christie displayed pity and hate towards a Black Woman with power. Would Christie have done this towards a White Woman or Hispanic Woman???????? If Obama would have done something like this there would have been a higher volume of controversy.

As many times as we've heard "the first African-American woman" to do this or that...
It would be nice if we've reached the point where nobody needs to point that out. Have we reached that point? Is that what these complaints are saying? Nobody need notice a person's ethnicity any more?
If so, good, then racism has ended.
Gee, barros,

Didn't THINK so.

By the way, you missed a spot.
