Harry Reid recently put his foot in his mouth regarding the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby decision. He stated:

“The one thing we are going to do during this work period, sooner rather than later, is to ensure that women’s lives are not determined by virtue of five white men.”
Now, people are taking to Twitter to voice their outrage over the racist comment with the hashtag #AmIBlackEnough.

Many people are also upset that Reid neglected to acknowledge the fact that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is a black man.
