The newspaper, AJC, reports that the local elections fell along racial lines. We add, “sort of.” From the article: “Mary Norwood swept predominately white precincts of the city Tuesday, and also found support in key black precincts, while former state senator Kasim Reed dominated his base in southwest Atlanta and had a strong showing in predominately black areas of northwest and west Atlanta.”
Now – how is it that Mary Norwood, who is of lighter complexion, can “find support in key black (i.e., darker complexion) precints” and have the “election fall along racial lines?”
We here at O-t-c find ourselves so bored and so disgusted with breaking things down on race – or any other stupid hyphen.
Either something is good for the nation or it’s not. Either something is good for Atlanta – as a whole – or it’s not. Why does it have to always – always – be about race.
We are reminded how people of lighter complexion were said to be closet racists for not supporting Obama when 90%+ of people of darker complexion voted for the Socialist putz, but they weren’t deemed racist at all. Oh no. That was something else. What that something might be called by the mainstream fringe media, we still don’t know. (We call it racist poppycock.)
Again – it’s such a yawner and such a disappointment.
When will people of all complexions throw away their stupid hyphens. If there’s anything that makes a person a slave in modern American society, it’s your hyphen. Throw it away and declare yourself to be a free citizen. A free American. Throw away your hyphen and vote for pragmatism, for things that work, for things that enrich our lives instead of make us dependent on government. Put government into the small box it’s supposed to be in. That is what it means to be free.
That is what it means to be free! End of story.
Who’s brain is this?
“I don’t care about whether I’m liked, I’m doing the will of the American people who, for some reason, don’t like me. I can’t put two and two together, but then I was never any good at math. The American people care about this; I’m doing it for them, even though they say they don’t like me. I wonder why they don’t like me. Oh well. It doesn’t matter what the American people like or don’t like. What matters is that this is what the American people want. Hmm… does this make sense? I don’t know; I guess it does. The voices in my head are telling me that it’s a good thing to do what the American people like, even though they don’t like me. Why don’t they like me? I don’t understand! How can they not like me if I’m passing the legislation that they want. I know they want it. President Obama tells me they want it. I know they have wanted it for decades; but they vote against it because they are too stupid to see the insurance companies are messing with them. So I am doing this because they really want it. But why don’t they like me? I am so confused. No you’re not. Never say you are confused. Blame it on the CIA. Blame it on the Republicans. They’re always doing this. Twisting things around so that it looks like people don’t like me even though I’m on their side. I know I’m on their side and that Republicans are evil because I am doing what the American people want. That is why they don’t like me; because I’m doing what they want. Does this make sense. Yes – of course it does. Let me hold a press conference so that I can pass on what I have just discovered by the sheer power of my thinking processes. I am so smart. That is why the American people want health care reform; because I’m smart; and they’re not. That’s why I have to tell them what they want. But they don’t like me. I don’t see how that can be. I’m smart; I should be able to understand. I do – it’s the Republican’s fault that they don’t like me…”
We’re not naming names, but we bet you know who.
