RNC chairman Michael Steele told Roland Martin that some Republicans are afraid of him because he’s black. But Jon Stewart doesn’t think the color of his skin is the problem. “Michael Steele, I don’t think their afraid of you because you’re black. I think they’re afraid of you because of the stupid shit you say on television,” said Stewart.
