One would think that ushering in the first black President would put racism to bed in this country, right? Not so:
Even if you vote for Obama, you're still probably a racist, according to Harvard law professor Charles Ogletree, in his remarks at recent events like a panel discussion at my alma mater. Ogletree, Obama's top advisor on race issues, explains that since Obama is “biracial,” his election won't prove that racism has receded. White America won't vote for blacks, Ogletree argues, and Obama's election is possible only because he's partly white. The ABA Journal predicts that Ogletree, who has long advocated race-based reparations, will be the Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Civil Rights Division during the Obama administration.
We heard in the primaries that the only way Obama could possibly lose to Hillary was if those ignorant rubes in the American public (specifically, Democrats voting in the primary) were racist. Then, we were told that the only possible way Obama could lose against John McCain was if those ignorant rubes in the American public (specifically, everyone) were racist. Now, we're being told that even if we do elect Obama, we're still racist.
See? The race industry is alive and well, and will not go away just because Obama wins.
Don't accept the narrative that the liberal media has set up. If you don't vote for Obama, you're not a racist. Though the Left may not have the intellectual honesty to accept it, the fact is that people will refuse to vote for Obama for any number of reasons: he's a Democrat, he's a liberal, he's a socialist, he's got too many sketchy friends, etc. Race may have something to do with it for a tiny fraction of the public, but for every one of those I would imagine you'll find at least one who supports Obama purely because of race, too. It's a wash, and it's a ridiculous assertion that's more an intimidation tactic than something that has a basis in fact.
Nevertheless, we can expect some rioting after the election, and it's a safe assumption that it won't be the Quakers throwing the firebombs, if you know what I mean. The media and the Obama campaign have been setting this up as a racial contest for weeks, so the expectation has been set, and we'll probably get it regardless of who wins. Look at what happened when the Phillies won the World Series a couple days ago:
Philly fans engaged in their usual classy fashion, including robbing a bank to pay for new World Series championship gear. … Other fans went crazy. Still more Philly fans decided to trash the city; overturning cars, setting fires, rioting, and doing what Philly fans are best known for – acting like a bunch of unruly surly people.
Can you imagine what it will be like if Obama actually loses? Police forces are already preparing for the worst.
The big problem is that this race is very, very tight. Polls show it across the board (except for the die-hard Kool-Aid drinkers), McCain is now leading on the economy and taxes, and they are talking very confidently about a number of states that are supposedly in Obama's win column. Now, we find out that there's an under-the-radar movement in the House that would indicate a surprising lack of the landslide that the Dems are looking for. On a generic ballot, the GOP is looking better than they have in three years.
Why do I bring all this up? Because these race riots will be completely unfounded. They are based on a lie perpetrated by the liberal Left (both the media and the Obama campaign itself), who have been saying this election is over when it is, in reality, a very close call. Sure, Obama may still win. That's no excuse to riot. Even if he loses, it's no excuse to riot.
Either way, if we see violence, destruction, or death on November 5th, let the record show that it will be squarely on the shoulders of the liberal Left for creating and encouraging those conditions.
Viva la racism!
There's my two cents.
