From the comments at (where else?) Buffoon Juice:
I am white, and I am overwhelmed by the amount of subtle and not-so-subtle racism displayed by people on the left about Obama (I pretty much expected it from the right). The condescension, the disrespect, the sneering—it’s all so disheartening. Someone on a previous thread referred to Obama as a “deeply mediocre president.” I look at this man and all he has done, under such horrible circumstances, and I think that anyone who can call him “deeply mediocre” must be only able to look at him through some kind of demeaning racial lens. There’s no other explanation.
That paragraph encapsulates perfectly the cancerous effect that playing the race card has had upon our body politic.
First it was Bill and Hillary. Then it was Hillary’s supporters. Then it was the Republicans. Now it’s anybody who doesn’t think Obama is Teh Awesome.
