Lohan refers to Obama as 'first colored president'

Published - Nov 12 2008 05:34PM EST | AP

Lindsay Lohan referred to President-elect Barack Obama as thecountry's "first colored president" in an interview on "AccessHollywood." Describing her experience on Election Day, Lohan said: "Itwas really exciting. It's an amazing feeling. It's our first coloredpresident."

A spokeswoman for Lohan didn't immediately return messages left Wednesday.

InterviewerMaria Menounos didn't question the 22-year-old actress on her use ofthe term. "Access Hollywood" also didn't cite her remark in its onlinestory, but did post an "extended interview" video on its Web site thatincluded the remark.

A spokesman for the syndicated entertainment news program said in astatement Wednesday: "We believe the word in question that Ms. Lohanused was unintelligible."

Lohan blogged about her support of Obama during the presidential campaign.

We haven't seen or heard anything yet but I'm still trying to figure out who is the colored person that she is talking about.

I'm shocked, being that she had another incident and referred to the young man involved as "black." So I wonder why she had amnesia when questioned about Barack Obama becoming President, whom she claimed to have supported.

I'm just asking..............

It's just another way of getting attention. She pulls these kind of stunts to stay in the news.

Nader is just a hater because he has very few supporters. Can you blame him. After all, look how many times he's been on the ballot to just take votes from someone who really matters.

girl don't even have height...I heard she disputed with ugly betty in the uggly betty show and that she is now been sued for it...
don't know if anybody is paying attention...She is like 22 years old, she is very short, she was caught with cocaine, she is now with a women claiming she is lesbian or bi or whatever, and she now calls the president "colored"...She is too young for all those kind of stuff...what's next? Join the KKK or shot someone...?

She's too young to be using that term. So I don't think it's bigotry. Just something weird, which wouldn't be surprising. I mean, where would she hear it? I think she's always liked Obama.

We're all some sort of color. I'm white with a pinkish tone with deep blue spider veins and brown age spots. So I guess that makes me multi-colored. :-)

Maybe Lindsey should get together with this couple. LOL

Actually it's hasn't been that long since I've heard someone refer to black people as "colored"

Lottomike used it right here on LP blog and he is in his 30s. Why don't we ask him. He said he lived next door to "colored" people.

Maybe he will tell us to why someone his age still uses it.

In some parts of the world i think they still used that...But don't get mad if you hear that term in India because over there people are colored or brownish like...I don't know maybe people in India refer to themselves as colored...Last time i heard that term in a conversation was like 12 years ago...I heard that term used by this famous black women who was making a show similar to Oprah [can't remember her name right now], and she reffer to a Spanish lady who had deep prejudices as women of color which to me sounds like saying colored...What i do not like is for other black people to call me brother or refer to someone else as "sista", the only brothers and sisters i know besides my family are the one from church and i want to keep it like that...Another term they use and i don't know why they use it is sugar daddy...I don't want no one calling me colored but if they do, i wouldn't take it too at heart because i know that humans are very precious and we are bacteria like in size compared to the Universe, and the Universe is huge and violent and we as a human race are riddled with diseases, we don't live that long, what more can i say, have you ever heard someone grasping for air? is not a pretty picture..That's why i forgive them and they are precious whether they are racist or not..

And do you notice that everyone is perked up when a white person call someone else colored, yet no one talks about when a black person whether involved in a gang or not kills a white person or a white women...Black people don't talk about it...And it doesn't have to be a white person it can be a black person...Which i don't know what's wrong with black folks because they are usually constantly killing someone...In most crime or killing there is always a black person not all the time but a lot of time...And what do you call killing another human been? Deep racism maybe? There is no such thing as the perfect race, anyone can become the devil...And who do you think has been making most of the invention that transform our lives? BLACKS? or whites?Exactly...I don't care how much you pay for a car, it has transform our lives tremendously and the person selling you the car is DOING YOU A FAVOR not the other way around...

But i am not going to lie to you, the kind of racism/prejudism that white people display is ALMOST, AND I SAID ALMOST as bad as killing someone...I am not lying to you...

There are people also who are not black they might be mixed or who knows what and have brown skin just like black people and i think they call these people, people of color which to me is the same as calling someone colored..I could be wrong...

And you will be more precious if you study science...You are precious because of your brain and your potential to think stuff up, constructs stuff, etc, because they all can be converted to study science and help push this world forward...
