Tim Wise over the results of the recent election. He wasn't too pleased, of course, otherwise there wouldn't have been a rant.
Wikipedia described Tim as an anti racist activist, which is all well and good, but so are Brother Jesse and Ididot Al Sharpton.
I grew up in the 60s and remember collecting quarters for the Fredom Riders that went into the deep south and registered black voters. I supported Dr. King and have always believed in giving everyone a fair shake.
The entire tone of the rant was childish, like a little kid that didn't want what he got for Christmas or something like that.
Truth is, the recent election results were about money and runaway spending and had nothing to do with race, yet it seems that the other side wanted to drag the race card into it every way you turned.
If you don't support Obamas policies you are a racist.
Frankly I'm getting sick and tired of every liberal do-gooder hiding behind the cloak of racism. I don't buy it, especially when I looked at a number of black conservatives that I would just love to see in public office.
In fact, Alan West, a black conservative was just elected to represent Florida's 22nd district. I was elated to hear he won.
A number of minority conservative candidates were elected.
There are now two Indian-American governors, a number of Hispanics and a number of blacks that rode the recent conservative wave.
It certainly wasn't their race that got them into office, it was their politics. In fact, it should be carefully noted that virtually all of the newly elected minoritiy office holders were elected in white majority areas.
One of the things I have seemed to notice about the Tim Wises, Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons is that they continually seem to foster racism and are always trying to create it even in places where it doesn't exist. I figure it is because if it completely goes away, they will be out on their asses looking for an honest job.
