Not racist, right?

If you weren't listening closely you would have missed it.

What it was was just one more piece of evidence that, as conservatives keep claiming, the hatred for President Obama has nothing to do with race.

Today it's a story on NPR's Morning Edition about the latest attack on women's rights by Congressional Republicans, and you need to listen very closely to the chant at the very end of the story.

If you don't want to wait for it, move the cursor ahead to about 4:09 of the 4:11 story, to where you hear a bunch of anti-abortion demonstrators. I had to listen a few times to be sure, but what they're chanting is “Hey, Obama, yo'mama chose life”. 

Yes, you heard right. It's a bunch of young white women chanting “Yo mama” at our black president.

Nothing racial about that, right?
