Stick with me here.
If he’s half black and half white, why do we call him “black” if he’s as white as he is black?
If we’re really post-racial, why does anyone care about his skin color? If he is really post-racial, why does he trade on it? Why does his wife? Why does the media?
“Look at him,” some may say, “Of course he’s Black!”
The (intolerant) Left, however, insists that race is a “Social construct,” not something real as evidenced by biology. Really.
Yet the intolerant Left is all the while insisting that corporations hold continuous “multicultural training” sessions to teach us that one’s primary characteristics (gender, race, height, weight, etc., etc.) are not only unimportant, they are irrelevant.
So we have Affirmative Action because…?
If race is a social construct, by definition then it has nothing to do with physical traits. And if Obama is half black and half white, we could as correctly refer to him as “white” as “black” or a “person of color”.
So – again, why don’t we ignore what he looks like, call him a “White” guy and listen to, and vote on, his ideas?
How about because he has nothing new to say?
McGovern ran on these concepts (one really can’t even refer to them as “ideas” they are so lacking in substance) and lost 48 states. Mondale ran on them in 1984 – and lost 49.
Obama is as naive as any public persona in living memory. Realistically an educated population would just ignore him. If he isn’t insulting us with his words, he is insulting us with his choice of “spiritual advisor” and letting his wife offend us with her words instead.
Let’s ignore race – and ask the candidate and his wife and the SF Democrats and the media to do so as well.
Let’s judge him on the content of his character, rather than the color of his skin.
And his character is… to raise his daughters in a racist, anti-American “church,” to propagandize anti-American racists such as Mr. Farrakhan, to tell voters they aren’t smart enough to understand their own voting patterns?
This is good character? This is what Dr. King had in mind?
Can we just begin ignoring him, his nihilistic wife, his racist pastors and racist spiritual advisor (Meeks)?
For the good of the country and our future – all of ours’?
