Progressive racism

Last nameless "Touré," a 9/11 Truther who, unbelievably is given credence network and print media, shows his racism towards Herman Cain in Time magazine this week:

This presidential election has not lacked for clowns, and in a circus Herman Cain fits right in. But as the Black clown, Cain's foot-in-mouth moments mostly involve insulting the Black community.

If this was a conservative saying this about Barack Obama, the MSM would be seeking to ostracize this individual forever from the scene for his "racism." But, alas, the last nameless Touré holds the "correct" views on race and race relations -- correct for for MSNBC, CNN, ABC, the New York Times, etc. For instance, he says,

Also, Big Daddy Cain recently said racism no longer "holds anyone back in a big way," which is a disgusting and dangerous statement because it gives leverage to those who want desperately to believe that lie. Racism is like the weather: we only talk about its extremes, but it’s always there. America has institutional inequities built into its structures that guarantee that millions of Blacks have no chance at success. Those systems operate powered by white privilege, which works automatically, no need to apply or activate it. And much of modern racism is subtle and hidden; there are fewer smoking guns now than ever.

Or, on the other hand, as common sensical people would put it, when there's not much left to complain about, make it "subtle" and "hidden" -- that way we don't actually have to show or prove anything.

Just keep in mind that this is the lunatic who once asked

  • How can we feel America hates us when a black man is elected president?
  • Can We Say 'Fuck Whitey' If the President Is Black?
  • Whom do we rail against if the guy in the Oval Office is one of us?

Lovely, eh?
