Harry Reid's "no Negro dialect" apology

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid apologized for once describing Barack Obama as "light skinned" and as speaking without a "Negro dialect." The apology was released on January 9, 2010, in response to The Atlantic website's post of excerpts from Mark Halperin and John Heilemann's new book titled Game Change. Reid made the comments about the then-Senator Obama during his run for president in 2008.
