My N-Word is NOVEMBER
H/T to Erick Erickson for the title of this post.
Looks like the Philadelphia Inquirer is indulging in race baiting or is this the journalistic standard of the Inq? The Sunday edition included a reprinted piece written in December 2009 for Aspenia, an Italian journal. Professor Carlos Dews, living in Italy has the scoop on alleged American racism.
I get that Carlos feels he needs to bash America in front of his Italian colleagues. He’s got to fit in, as an expat, he certainly is vulnerable. The following quote from the article tells me all I need to know about Carlos.
Unfortunately, racists in the United States have learned one valuable lesson since the 1960s: They cannot express their racism directly. In public, they must veil their racial hatred behind policy differences.
According to this logic, Carlos or the Inquirer should label the thousands of President Bush protesters as racists. Help me out here, I can’t find any article from either that discusses the racist nature of the anti-Bush protesters.
So let me sum up the message here: white people protesting the policies of a white president is okay. However, Americans protesting the policies of a bi-racial president are inherently racist. Anyone else see the blantant hypocrisy of his logic?
Carlos Dews is a racist of the worst sort – one that foments racial divisions for his own benefit. Translated into a “To Kill A Mockingbird’ theme – Carlos is Bob Ewell. A character who knowingly promoted a lie in order to maintain the status quo of racial prejudice within the community while protecting his sad affairs.
