Two “minority” members at my last job (one Chicano, one Black), are Obama supporters. They have convinced themselves any Caucasian who opposes Obama does so because he is “black”. Therefore, any failures on Obama’s part aren’t his fault because White racists are opposing everything he does.
Hear the same line from White Liberals. It must be comforting to have a scapegoat so you don’t need to look closely at your hero and his feet of clay. You can dismiss any criticism by labeling the critic a “racist” and avoid considering the argument
“Oh, poor Berry. Look at the mess he inherited.” It seems now he has inherited his own four year mess. Still, it is blame Bush, and blame White racists.
As an aside, anyone who thinks I ever supported Bush need only read some of my old postings.
Just who is the racist? A person of color, or a woman, in positions of authority can’t be criticized? Why, because they should be immune on grounds of political correctness; that they somehow need “special” dispensation? Why, are they less capable than a “white male” and need coddling?
Yes, I know, I’m pissing into the wind. What bothers me the most is the polarization of the people who do involve themselves, who are not sheeple, and the lack of simple courtesy. I’ve never seen such deep animosity, and I was in both the Army and college in the 60’s. I saw up close and personal, the antiwar and civil rights uproars.
