    I saw your report on Van Jones and questioned why it is you left out the most controversial reason he was asked to leave, which was his racist remarks. Van Jones believes "whites are poisoning our black communities" among others comments including whites are the only race capable of Columbine shootings. Also, you report that Obama did not ask him to resign (but he did hire him). Obama is like the guy who hires a hitman. Doesn't want to get his hands dirty but wants the job done. Obama is as guilty as Van Jones of racism in the first degree. Both should pack their bags and go back to Africa.
