You can get the back story for reasons of context here, but regardless of why Matthews said it, the only necessary info is that Tingles informed his two black guests that he’s “speaking now for all white people”:


“We got to continue this conversation, gentlemen, privately and on television,” he said. “I mean a lot of people out there – I’ll just tell you one thing. And I’m speaking now for all white people, but especially people who have had to try to change the last 50 or 60 years. A lot of them have really tried to change and I’m sorry for this stuff. That’s all I’m saying.”

Word is that Matthews has assumed he speaks for all white people ever since his nearly successful bid to become president of his Chevy Chase, Maryland neighbourhood association.

Allahpundit suggests this would make a great hourly newsbreak-type feature for MSNBC: “Chris Matthews apologizes on behalf of all white people for _______.” That idea is definitely a sponsorship opportunity for MSNBC.

And for anybody who doesn’t get it:
