“Hockey mom” is now code for an anti-black. “Joe Six Pack?” Get the rope and hood!
There is no decoder ring necessary when you read some of the overtly racist blog comments I received from Americans of African descent who support Barack Obama. Here’s one mild example:
“Hello you racist dog. You are officially dismissed from the African American Race. How discusting to see you on the television with your white racist friends McCain and Palin. To them you're just another Nigger. I hope you fry in hell for what you said about a decent person like Obama.”
It always surprises me how people can call me a hater as they spew hate. It’s so…
I stopped reading when my kids started to freak out. The death wishes really bothered them. They couldn’t understand why I was laughing and marveling at the level of vile vitriol. I mean it’s only political discourse, right?
“Daddy? Do people really hate you so much just because you’re voting for McCain?”
No. It seems they hate me because I’m a black conservative campaigning against the Chocolate Jesus. For me, it’s ideology. For them, it’s heresy.”
Seriously, I’ve received hundreds of e-mail messages and blog comments on my site from Americans of African descent, and 99% of them are drenched in racism.
Who’s “stepping and fetching” on the plantation, here?
I am an American of African descent with a conservative ideology being criticized for supporting that ideology, rather than supporting a candidate based solely on the color of his skin.
MLK, Jr. is rolling in his grave.
So, to all of you angry Obama supporters out there, I’m begging you, begging you…
Keep it coming!
