See, this is what happens when you start thinking about the drivel of right-wing, "compassionate" conservatives.
From my blog...an entry on telling it like it is
"Racism today is no longer overt. While the occasional shouting of a racial slurs does happen in many parts the world, current society tells us that such things are unacceptable. Polite society does not allow for the use of ethnic slurs or obvious statements of racial superiority. Racism has evolved into a more discreet but nonetheless noxious form. It's when political ideologues muse about the abortion of young Black baby boys to reduce crime. It's when people compliment you on how well you speak your mother tongue and how well articulate your thoughts. It's when in the face of obvious injustices, such as the latest hurricane relief efforts, that they refuse to question or even entertain the idea that racism exists. It's just some thing of the 1960s. Slavery is over. Jim Crow is over. Move on....
There aren't enough glowing recommendations from professors,
or honors and accolades,
or straight As,
or strong work ethics,
or medals and plaques
or clean records or no prison histories,
no drugs in the urine tests,
or glowing words from other white employees
for people like O'Reilly, Coulter, Bennett, Hannity and all the other neocon-artists to see beyond the fact that they can't see past Blackness.
