A commenter today said in response to my posting (below) that I should stop acting stupidly. He’s right – I must BE stupidly. It will carry a horrible and steep price though…
Well Don H., I hope you are happy.
**** Now, on with the post. ****
All whites are racist.
Or is it racist to say that?
Ex-President Carter, who is probably the most useful idiot of our times, now tells us that roadblocks to Obama’s healthcare proposal is motivated by racism, at least in part. An overwhelming part.
“I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he’s African-American,” Carter told “NBC Nightly News.” “I live in the South, and I’ve seen the South come a long way, and I’ve seen the rest of the country that shares the South’s attitude toward minority groups at that time, particularly African-Americans.”
“That racism inclination still exists, and I think it’s bubbled up to the surface because of belief among many white people — not just in the South but around the country — that African-Americans are not qualified to lead this great country. It’s an abominable circumstance, and it grieves me and concerns me very deeply,” Carter said.
What bothers me is that his accusation precludes me from having legitimate concerns. I disagree so by default the cause of my dissension is racism, which you can deny until you’re blue in the face but those so inclined will never look past the declaration of your bigotry.
Shall we then assume that resistance to national health care the first time around, virulent as it was then, was also related to race? Of course! Slick Willy… errrrr… Ex-President William Jefferson Clinton was our first black president, and any resistance to his proposal for a boondoggle of epic fail proportions was purely because of his race.
If resisting a proposal because it scares the living hell out of me is the definition of racist, regardless of skin color, then yes, I must be a racist.
We have reviewed ourselves and find ourselves to be juuuuust fine.
