Bloviating Zeppelin: Racism? I Submit: Yes

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Racism? I Submit: Yes


New Gallup poll numbers are out. An inordinate number of blacks love Mr Obama.

And they point to some clear racism in this country.

But not in the way you might expect. And, apparently, myself and Yid With Lid are on the same battle page:

In a recent interview with the German Magazine Der Spiegel Congressman John Lewis suggested that Obama's approval ratings are low because of the color of his skin.
In some quarters, it's true, people cannot get used to the idea that a person of color is president of the United States. People cannot get comfortable with the idea that so many people are coming from different parts of the world to America. In just a short time, America will be a minority majority, and that feeds some of the frustration.

Allow me to suggest that a look of the President's approval numbers may suggest the opposite, African Americans are 65% more likely to approve of President Obama than Hispanic Americans, twice as likely to support Obama than the general population and 2.6 times more likely to approve of the POTUS than Non-Hispanic Whites. That suggests that if there is Racism in Obama's approval numbers, it is coming from the African-Americans who support him, rather than the Caucasians who do not.


Boom. And there you have it.

91% of blacks approve Mr Obama. 36% of whites approve. This is clearly a racist determination.

Yet, nearly 50% of whites voted for Obama in the election. Have the remainder become immediate racists since their vote?

Or have blacks decided they'll play the Melanin Card insofar as they did in the O.J. Simpson decision? Jury nullification? Voter nullification?

Who are the racists here? Who apparently sides and votes predominantly via melanin?

Interesting take... :-) Too bad the truth is out there in the numbers that they can't deny!

Take a look at this, racism from the bench: Black judge: No plea deal for 'white boy' who fought cops

If a WHITE judge had made a statement to this effect, "a ridiculous plea that only goes to BLACK boys." the Black Panthers would be mobilizing, the NAACP would be in an uproar, Je$$ie Jack$on and Al $harpton would be all over MSNBC and CNN, calling for marches and investigations and making accusations of vile RACISM from the bench...

But since it's a BLACK judge making the statement, he'll get a FREE PASS, because everyone knows, only wicked white folks can be racists..

dm: I suppose you could say that. . .

NFO: the truth is a dastardly thing.

TF: I had no damn idea. You are completely correct.
