Mrs. YoMama Controversy: Not Again. From theroot.com
One of the things that I personally look forward to in November, is the smug look that will be on the faces of many Obama detractors when they realize he will be in office for another term. Despite all of the overt racism masked as criticism, I believe he will prevail against the cauldron of idiots currently in line for the Republican nomination. After watching the Republican debate this morning, I sense a real divide in this pathetic group of politicians. They have resorted to racist rhetoric in the past and it will only increase in the coming months. Everything from the first lady’s body type(which a lot of men actually don’t mind) to the President’s birth certificate has proven over and over again that it’s not just about disagreeing with policy/ideology. The right wing thought they had the perfect elixir by pretending to parade the joke known as Herman Cain to the American public. This walking minstrel show was nothing more than an attempt to alienate the president and make him appear radical and out of touch. It was bad enough that many white people were using race as a weapon, but here you had another black man wearing a cowboy hat and cowboy boots questioning President Obama’s”blackness”- Racism, perhaps will never go away. The days of racists saying whatever they feel like…might not either. What WILL go away is blacks and other minorities putting up with the bullshit. There’s a new sheriff in town and his name is DIVERSITY. He’s here with a multi-colored uniform representing the concerns of the forgotten 2/3rd’s of the people of this planet and ready to arrest those who STILL insist on living in their racist world of arrested development.
