As I’ve been cruising around the Internet the past few days since the election, I’ve seen the following sentiment from conservative peckerwoods:
“Well there they go. A black man was elected to the highest office in the country. I’d better never hear a single black person whine or complain ever again.”
Excuse me, what? There have been forty-three white presidents, and white people whine and complain all the damn time.
Besides, I don’t see what Obama getting elected has to do with the average black person. It’s not like it’s going to make getting a cab any easier. Surely Obama getting elected is a good sign of the times — that racism is slowly and eventually vanishing from our country. However, to claim that the moment he won the election there was a metaphysical change in the country that made blacks less disadvantaged is ridiculous.
All of this reconfirms an age-old truth: there’s nothing worse than Republicans complaining about black people.
