USA Today points out that as much as President Obama wants to avoid discussions of race during his presidency, events are forcing him to do just that.
Pfft. First, every presidency can be defined as a continuous string of unwanted events! In Barack Obamas case, he is effectively known for and being judged by nothing but unwanted events. If the USA Today article is right, he better learn to deal with it fast.
Second, let us look at the incidents that happened. Harry Reid. Joe Biden.* Jeremiah Wright. Skip Gates. Jimmy Carter. And Rob Blagojevich, who announced hes blacker than Obama. Evidently, the former Illinois governor meant legally, which is probably true.
Unspoken? Where are the GOP names. Remember? All the Republicans who were certain to have issues with a minority president? All the GOP affiliates whose unbridled racism would bring to light Americas shame? Why are all these people affiliated in and around the Presidents own circles? It should make people think…but it sadly wont.
* Is the Czar the only one confused as to when articulate became a racist word?
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
