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.
