Despite Barack Obama pledging to unite the country and create a post-racial America, race friction appears to be more heated now than it has been in years. As more and more events are viewed through the prism of race, news reporting such as this may soon become commonplace:
WASHINGTON (Mainstream Media News Service) — Arizona Senator John McCain, a white man, today displayed his ugly racism by criticizing African-American President Barack Obama. McCain, you’ll recall, had tried to keep a black man out of the White House by opposing Mr. Obama in the 2008 presidential election, a race won by Mr. Obama when 69-million people voted for him and 60-million racists voted for McCain. The white-skinned senator said Mr. Obama is wrong to oppose Arizona’s new anti-illegal immigration law, a law aimed at brown-skinned people.
The white McCain cited examples of illegals from Mexico committing such acts of violence in Arizona as home invasions, kidnapping and murder, acts he never complained about when they were committed by whites. The Caucasian senator further unleasheded his bigotry by criticizing African-American U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder with the incendiary words, “His lawsuit against Arizona is ill-advised.”
McCain, known to have white sheets on his bed, was also critical of the black Holder for failing to bring charges of voter intimidation against members of the New Black Panther Party for standing in front of a Philadelphia polling place in 2008. However, there is no record of McCain ever criticizing white people who publicly displayed an interest in politics.
The lily-hued McCain has also been critical of the African-American president’s handling of the Gulf oil spill, criticism made all the more racist by the fact the oil is the same color as the president’s skin. Although he denies any racial bigotry, McCain was recently seen at a restaurant refusing to take his coffee black.
