These are two things that may have slipped under the collective radar. I even missed this first clip on some of my usual blogs. But granted I was out during the summer when my laptop decided to go on the fritz. So here it is and yes, he went there with it.
After watching that clip, I can’t help but further begin to question the underlying racialisation of said President Barack Obama’s healthcare plan and how perhaps what would have been normal protesting of policies have now taken on a racial quality that otherwise would not have been there. And naturally, emotions are raw when it comes to issues of race. Just as Older Woman commented on a previous blog that she’s been receiving emails that have alleged all types of falsities and mistruths that all cultural and racially tinged attacks on Obama’s person.
It’s this type of foolishness that makes it okay for people to send out awful emails or to walk around with protest signs that don’t just attack policies but attack race and culture. Perhaps in this particular day and age, this type of rhetoric allows for Watermelon Soda to be sold in a Target in Harlem. Check out the following clip:
Post racial my ass!
Just wanted to bring all of this to your attention.
Keep it uppity and keep it truthfully radical, JLL
