Sotomayor is Latest Example of reverse racism

with 16 comments

mlk2When Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich called Sonia Sotomayor a reverse racist today, a bunch of lefties got their panties all in a bunch.   They had never known there was such a thing.   Racism is an irrational prejudice or dislike of another person because of their race.   For example, black people are lazy therefore I won’t hire you or Mexican people are all illegal immigrants so I don’t like you.   Racism of this type has been eradicated from this country I am happy to say.   Now some minorities will deny this because they are trying to get special privileges for being a minority.

Reverse racism is an irrational prejudice or dislike of another race for equally silly reasons like your ancestors owned my ancestors or your race wiped my people off the face of the map or you pay your white self storage employees more than the rest of us. I am sorry to say that reverse racism is thriving in today’s society. You can look at the career of Donovan McNabb or Lebron James who were elevated to superstar status simply because their respective sport wanted an African-American star. Why is it that white men supposedly have no rhythm? It is because reverse racist record producers insist on using African beats.

Now, Rush Limbaugh calls Obama the greatest reverse racist around, “Obama is the greatest living example of a reverse racist, and now he’s appointed one — you getting this, AP?” and he may well be. I say this not because he is especially vitriolic, but because he is from a mixed race family and at the same time he looks down on blacks for not being as white as him, he also looks down on whites for not being as black as him. What’s worse he won the election because whites saw him as one of their own and so did blacks. If you take off the white votes he got for being white and his black votes for being black and discount the Mexicans who are still made at the Republicans for immigration policy, McCain wins in a landslide.

I’m afraid as Limbaugh points out, “And the libs of course say that minorities cannot be racists because they don’t have the power to implement their racism. Well, those days are gone because reverse racists certainly do have the power to implement their power.” Sadly, that isn’t true anymore. Blacks are making over 70% what whites make now, if Sotomayor gets picked for the Supreme Court women will control 16.6% of the votes on the highest court in the land, and salsa outsells good old American ketchup in this country even when you add its sales to the sales for catsup. Welcome to a brave new world. I don’t think I care for it much.

I leave you with the words of that old white spiritual that eased the burdens of so many of our ancestors as they took the long drive to their office from the suburbs:

“There’s a summer place
Where it may rain or storm
Yet I’m safe and warm
For within that summer place
Your arms reach out to me
And my heart is free from all care

For it knows
There are no gloomy skies
When seen through the eyes
Of those who are blessed with love

And the sweet secret of
A summer place
Is that it’s anywhere
Where two people share
All their hopes
All their dreams
All their love”
Theme from a Summer Place, The Lettermen, 1965

  1. I think you’re taking the downfall of the white male better than most of your people. Good on you. Soldier on, little man!

  3. We shall not overcome. the white man is doomed in this country. I must go to Texas with my sons and be free. You must help us. You have a daughter, this won’t effect you so much, but your nephews are doomed without your help. We must go to Texas where a white man can still be a man!

  6. We need to start a reverse underground railroad. Just think: a train that rolls backwards all the way to Texas! I’ll do anything to keep from doing dishes! Or windows. or vaccuuming. Jeez! this place is a dump!

  7. I like the idea, but the actual underground railroad wasn’t actually a railroad. A woman named Harriet Tubman would meet the slaves in the South and walk with them to Canada.

  8. That’s so disappointing! History demands a train!

    Sotomayor is unqualified. This Sotomization of America needs to stop. Haven’t we been Sotomized enough?

  9. I believe Amtrak runs trains to Dallas and Houston from several major cities. We need to get away from the government of this vaginatocracy as quickly as possible. Once they stop getting the white man’s tax checks, then they notice.

  10. Wrecks–I think Obama is a Soto Jerk

  11. That’s right! Obama had to make things worse by not picking a Rush approved contestant…or at least he could have chosen a God approved contestant.

  12. I know this is late, but i have a question and I think only Nate can answer it. I notice that conservatives decry both racism and opposite racism, but that opposite racism seems to be worse in their book. Please discuss.

  13. Opposite racism is worse because it affects the very white males who have built this society.

  15. […] underrepresented in the Ivy League.  I heard this and I was floored.   Recently, my article on reverse racism drew a lot of comments about the decline of white males, but here it was confronting me in black […]

  16. Man, those JibJab guys crack me up.
