Would he be shocked to find that, 40 years after the major events of
the Civil Rights Movement, our highest-paid media pundits accuse this
president of being a racist and of having a "deep seated hatred of white people?" Or call the President a "Halfrican American," "Magic Negro," the "affirmative action candidate," and suggest a return to the days of segregated buses?
The two top guys in the Neocon media - " that would be Glenn "Tears of a Clown" Beck and Rush "Oxymoron" Limbaugh -- have recently, and separately, justified slavery and advocated for a return to segregation.
Moving beyond Obama, Rush has suggested NFL games look like skirmishes between the Bloods and the Crips, suggested the NAACP should practice rioting by knocking over liquor stores, and characterized Civil Rights leader Jesse Jackson as looking like a composite photo of every wanted criminal.
So while we remember Martin Luther King, and the many
incredible accomplishments of his all-too-short leadership of the Civil
Rights Movement, we should also realize that in the year 2011 some of
our highest-paid and most respected members of society are blatantly,
We still have so far to go.
