Joe Scarborough: Obama Can’t be Angry Because He’s Black
October 21, 2010 Leave a comment
It’s always brand new, isn’t it. From the moment this President announced his candidacy the incessant racism has been explained away with a myriad of deflections (resulting from 200 years of denial), so it’s always a ‘shock’ that this country isn’t past the racism that it depends on as much as people need blood.
The easiest thing to do in a country that is denying its own racism is to deny your own racism. You’ll get a boat load of sympathetic individuals who are as equally in denial as you are. The fact this roundtable determines that “one of the reason’s he’s been successful is that he’s been a very measured person, and hasn’t been prone to fits of anger,” yet does not recognize the staggering racism of this ‘good house negro’ description, or the ‘Birth of a Nation’ assumption that Black people are angry and violent – just demonstrates the degree to which racism is engrained in every American White person’s reality… whether they are aware of it or not.
If you’re interested in facing this cornerstone of American reality, I’ve spent a great deal of time defining it. The following seven writings (in the order listed) detail the pivotal racial incidents that have gone ignored or forgotten since Barack Obama began threatening the image of “White Rule” in this country.
