I see nothing has changed

…in “Post-Racial” America.

Last week in far-away Niger a military coup seized the country’s president.  The event was reported on many blogs and message boards, including that bastion of right-wing brain damage, Free Republic.  The Freepers took one look at the headline:

…and erupted into post-racial comments:


Hyuk!  Hyuk!  Good grief, what a bunch of racist bozoids.  I’m starting to have serious doubts about that country (and I don’t mean Niger.)

    Illiterate and racist, always a winning combination. I don’t want to think how some of them might pronounce it thinking it’s a proper name so it’s cool.

    You’re only just starting to have serious doubts about that country?

    They need their internet permissions revoked.

    But then they’d just take to the back rooms their ancestors grew up in.

    Bruce – Well, I am an optimist so it’s taken me awhile to reach the point everyone else probably reached some time ago.

    Angie – Back to their caves, you mean.

    Actually I’m glad there’s a place they feel comfortable spewing — better to know where they are than not to know, and have them just doing the same thing on the sly. At least this way we get to make fun of them!

    Good morrow, all!
    Why do white people hate anyone of color, red, black, brown, yellow? Hate is the grandchild of fear. So, why do white people FEAR anyone of color?
    Maybe it’s because, worldwide, white people are in the minority. The yellow Asians, the red North American natives, the black Africans, the brown South Asians and South Americans…people of color outnumber, and outbreed, the Nordic European folks considerably. Perhaps the white race is on its way out, like the Neanderthals after Cro-Magnon Man came on the scene.
    Hatred is a learned trait. It is harmful to the physical system, and can lead, like diabetes, to a shortened, miserable, unhealthy life. Hatred is the white sugar of human psychology.

    @Cornelius,

    Racism is hardly the exclusive domain of “the white-man”, it is a universally human past time, even though certain groups and people would like to use “caucasions” as the poster child for anti-racism opportunities.

    By the way, technically speaking, our race is human, and it is not defined by the colour of our skin.


Wait. What?
