Do you think Rush and Dick are racist? I believe if Obama came up with the cure for cancer Rush and Dick would still find fault with this man. they never respected him as president and they oppose everything he proposes even if they once agreed on that same thing previously.

Rush is a racist. You can't listen to his show without hearing his contempt and belittlement of people of color who voted for Obama. People who can't hear that with Rush are likely racists themselves.

Dick I'm not sure sure. I think with him, he's just trying to rewrite his own legacy and he has to put Obama down to build himself up.

I guess having a party who had the audacity to run a black man for president were showing "racist tendencies"? I guess all the white people who voted for Obama where showing their "racist tendencies"? Where do you come up with this bogus stuff?

Nativechief - your ignorance offends me.

When Rush uses the term "magic negro" he is satirizing an article by LA Times writer David Ehrenstein (who is black):

Quote:
Obama the 'Magic Negro'

The Magic Negro is a figure of postmodern folk culture... there to assuage white "guilt"...

The only mud that momentarily stuck was criticism (white and black alike) concerning Obama's alleged "inauthenticty," as compared to such sterling examples of "genuine" blackness as Al Sharpton and Snoop Dogg. Speaking as an African American whose last name has led to his racial "credentials" being challenged...

Like a comic-book superhero, Obama is there to help, out of the sheer goodness of a heart we need not know or understand. For as with all Magic Negroes, the less real he seems, the more desirable he becomes. If he were real, white America couldn't project all its fantasies of curative black benevolence on him.

Well gee, if ya really wanna start spouting baseless racist BS why not continue by saying the GOP exhibited its racism by having only whites in its primaries? The world saw that too!

They are against the (D) more than the race.
