What [Noam] Scheiber is basically saying is that if you want to unite whites and minority voters, you have to focus on the issues that are a priority to whites. That’s pretty much white supremacy in a nutshell. His big “tell” comes in what he leaves out of that last sentence. The reason racial groups view the issues he places at the bottom differently is because they affect racial groups differently. White people never had to be concerned about “stop-and-frisk” because it almost never happened to a white person. White mothers/fathers, wives, siblings don’t spend much time worrying that their son, husband, brother will be harassed/beaten/killed because some police officer jumped to the conclusion that he was a “dangerous black/brown man.” But that is exactly how police actions become a priority for voters of color. The fear of what can happen becomes a life-and-death issue for them - as we’ve seen lately.
Los Angeles based talk show host for KABC radio Larry Elder appeared on Piers Morgan’s show on July 17 to explain his remarks about Morgan’s interview with Rachel Jeantel two days earlier, which could be characterized by these tweets:
Morgan began by asking Elder about his harsh criticism, and from the very beginning, Elder launched into a kind of classic Gish Gallup, by loudly spewing talking points about black on black crime, black victimization, and other topics that had nothing to do with what Morgan was asking him:
Every time Morgan tried to steer him back to the original topic, Elder would continue to filibuster, and it veered into some bad bad craziness:
Morgan: Let’s get back to my interview with Rachel Jeantel…because you tweeted at one stage, would I like Rachel Jeantel to fly my plane? Why would you say that?
Elder: Piers, I’ll tell you why I said that. Because after you interviewed her, you condescendingly went on television the next morning and called her “one smart cookie.” Bull! Why don’t you hire her as a nanny and see how smart she is? It’s a condescending kind of -
Morgan: Is she stupid Larry?
Elder: - thing to black people. I think you’re stupid for saying that kind of thing to try and get-
Morgan: That wasn’t my question.
Elder: …racism is not a problem in America anymore. The number one problem facing blacl people is the large number of black people born outside of wedlock. 75%. In 1960, 5% of all people in this country were born outside of wedlock. Fast forward, Peirs. The number now is 43%. You look at that, the crime, the dropouts, all that stuff is connected…
And it veers even further off topic into familiar Larry Elder talking points if you’ve heard his show on even a semi-regular basis (the comment about blacks marching on Washington because of the economy if the President were white is one that would kill you in a Larry Elder Show drinking game). But Morgan tries to steer him back to his question:
Morgan: …Let me just get back to the question I asked you and see if you can actually answer the quesetion: Do you think that Rachel Jeantel is stupid?
Elder: I think I would rather have a George Zimmerman living in my neighborhood…if we had more George Zimmerman’s living in my neighborhood, we would have a few fewer Ariel Castro’s. I thought we wanted people to be pro-active -
Morgan: That wasn’t the question Larry (crosstalk)…George Zimmerman shot dead an unarmed teenager.
Elder: - He was a neighborwood watch guy. Don’t you want people to be pro-active? There was crime in that neighborhood Piers! I live in South Central (crosstalk)…the burglar bars aren’t on there because of George Zimmerman. They’re on there because of a minority of thugs in the community that’s messing up everybody’s image and reputation. This is why people profile. Instead of being angry at George Zimmerman, be angry at the minority of thugs committing these types of crimes.
Elder never did answer the question of whether or not he thought Rachel Jeantel is stupid. But he did answer this question:
Morgan: Just out of interest, how many languages do you speak?
Elder: I don’t speak ebonics as well as Rachel if that’s what you mean.
The interview goes on, and just as you expect, conservatives think Elder owned Piers Morgan.
Yeah, by dodging his questions and filibustering…and race baiting.
Yesterday the Daily Caller had a BLOCKBUSTER of an expose - Paula Deen, the Food Network TV chef who had admitted to using racial slurs and demeaning racial comments…supported Barack Obama…
…campaigned for him in 2008!!!
Television chef Paula Deen, who lost her gig Friday with the Food Network after admitting and apologizing for having used racial epithets, including the “N-word,” is a supporter of President Barack Obama and campaigned on his behalf in 2008.
The Southern-bred television personality also invited Michelle Obama onto one of her television programs and praised the first lady’s healthy eating agenda.
Deen, who has previously faced criticism for using excessive quantities of fat and salt in her dishes, is under fire after it was revealed in a lawsuit that she admitted using the N-word and other racial slurs in front of her employees.
So once again, a wingnut meme is confirmed - the real racists are liberals/progressives/marxists/fascists/maoists/druids/etc…and the commenters ably respond to the dog whistle/air raid siren:
I don’t subscribe to any theory of racial superiority or inferiority based on the accident of genetics but using a perfectly acceptable word with a long history and Latin root as an indication of racism is just ridiculous when judged in the light of the history of the Left but especially the democrat party. The long association with the institution of Slavery, Jim Crow, The Racialist theories of the Progressive era, the Klan and the Confederacy that enjoy widespread Black support are all sourced from the Left and the democrat party.
It is a case of policies and institutions may enslave your bones but words will always hurt, degrade and insult you.
Seriously, who is responsible for the true degradation of the Black race?
So when will the ” African Americans” be held to the same standard?
” Have you ever used the term “cracker” in reference to White people?
Have you ever used the word ” whitey”? How about Honkey? ( yaa,, that one goes back a ways)
Or choose your favorite disparaging word towards white people.
Welcome to equality.
Is anyone really surprised she’s a democrat? They have always been the true racists.
Enough already. What she said is not that offensive. It’s just a word. What is offensive is the number of blacks shooting each other in American cities each weekend. What is offensive is the use of the same word in RAP and hip hip lyrics. Grow up.
I thought that no supporter of dear leader could ever be considered racist. She should have said nice things about the man who put a gun to her head and threatened her with death. Just because she was almost killed by that man of color doesn’t give her the right to say unpleasant things about him does it?
I hate admit it, but the n-word is actually a very productive if not inflammatory term. It succinctly encapsulates with righteous condemnation those philosophies that are destructive to both the individual and to society in general, and makes those it is directed at take notice. In my now limited social circles, it is not really considered a racial slur. It is instead a commonly used descriptor of an attitude of ‘you owe me, I am lawless and f-you to do something about it, and I can do in your face whatever I want’ and that attitude seems to come from both blacks and whites. We seem to easily discern those to whom the term is apt, and have no problems assigning it regardless of race. And my experience is it is used about 50/50. I suppose I am to be fired now.
Maybe we should have to fill out an application with the government to use the “N” word to make sure it’s used in only the most politically correct of circumstances.
obama supporter?!!! Hope she goes BROKE!!! Hope she goes to some small piece of land she owns and holes up and we never have to see or hear from her again, EVER!!!
Scumbag! As is anyone that is with that commie/marxist/socialist/gangster composite!!!
Radical leftist Obama ….Its his red socialist commie ideology that’s the problem, not his bi-racial skin color. Get it right Paula Deen.
The N-word is a racial slur and “kill whitey” isn’t? Tell me the left wing PC crowd aren’t hypocrites. Our country has gone nuts!!!!
Blacks are the most racist group in the US…no competition. Look at the Uniform Crime Statistics…what race rapes other races….100 white women raped by blacks EVERY DAY! Less than 100 black women raped by white guys ALL YEAR. Packs of black males “polar bear hunting”…which is a pack of cowardly blacks attacking a single white male…then taking videos of the attack and posting it to Facebook for their fellow blacks to enjoy their racism.
Sorry, in every criminal category, the attackers of one race against another is by far led by blacks against any other race. The true racists are black.
And it continues…deep into the soft, corpulent, underbelly of conservatism and the Republican Party…
There is really nothing to say about this infamous clip from Election Night, because it speaks volumes. “People want stuff,” Or…translated into racist wingnut, “Mo’ free shit!”
Such as Obama phones.
