Let me try and take this slowly. Racism isn't my favorite subject, there are those who make their living keeping it alive, If it wasn't for race, David Duke and Al Sharpton would both make a lot less money having to work for a living instead of playing on peoples fears. I've got no intention of making race a primary topic and dropping to their level. People come in different colors. When I meet someone for the first time I notice what color they are. I also happen to notice gender, relative size, age and a bunch of other things, anyone who says they don't notice this stuff is a liar. It all gets filed somewhere in the brain, not forgotten, but not worth any thought...
If someone asks me later what the person was like... They'll get, "She was a nice, good personality, fairly smart". Outside of the he or she there's not much reason to get into the physical details.. unless there's something exceptional... "She was beautiful" or " He was green and had long antennas sticking out of his head."
Liberals on the other hand place a tremendous amount of empathise on race, while conservatives are more inclined to judge people on how they think and the relationship they have with the person. liberals pigeon hole people based on physical characteristics.
The first time I got called a racist over Barack Obama it caught me by surprise. It was early summer 2008, and I was having what I'd thought was a friendly conversation about the presidential candidates.
The question was simple, "What do you think about Obama?"
So was my reply, "He's promising too many things to, too many people.. it could get him in trouble, some of them are going to be very unhappy."
Reply, "So you're a F'ing racist, admit it."
As time, and Obama's campaign and the presidency progressed, it happened more and more. Someone finally explained it. You are an older white male, that makes you a product of a segregated school system and intolerant social environment when you were growing up.. Anything, anything at all you say that isn't apologetic or complimentary of a black person proves you're a closet racist.
The same logic makes it impossible for a male black to be racist. They are always the victim and must be treated accordingly.. Nothing can ever change the fact they are trampled and stomped into the ground by the white man's oppression, Even the President of the United States is still a victim... He's black, he'll aways be a victim
Which explains why it is perfectly accptable for the First Lady to invite a rapper to the White House who's The rapper’s 2007 rap,
“A Letter to the Law,” talks of Uzi submachine guns, “the black strap to make the cops run,” and includes a call to “burn a Bush
New Jersey police, are not happy about his support for a cop killer. "A Song for Assata" lyrics like "Your power and pride is beautiful. May God bless your soul." Shakur, formerly known as Joanne Chesimard, was convicted for the 1973 slaying of Trooper Werner Foerster on the New Jersey Turnpike. She escaped prison in 1979, and is living in asylum in Cuba
As Pajamas Media put it "Some of Common's poetry could also raise some eyebrows among those who might find cop-killing and racially-tinged or misogynist language beneath the Office of the Presidency."
If I started talking about burning Obama or Uzi's and shooting cops, I'm pretty sure I'd get an official invitation to appear somewhere, and it wouldn't be as an honored guest at the White House.
I can let you hear some of what they have to say for themselves..... they don't seem to fond of the police either.
WARNING...the F word is the only one they can say plainly
In 2003 then-first lady Laura Bush. planned a White House reading of classic 19th century poets dedicated to the works of Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman, . It was derailed by protests from left-wing poets who refused to attend.
