Addendum to Miley Cyrus V.M.A. post

We saw two days ago how the HuffPo and white rapper Macklemore absurdly injected race into the MTV VMAs; it's clear they have plenty of acolytes, too (via Ace):

As if we needed more proof that those who constantly clamor about others' racism are the real racists.

*Siiiiigh* What's next, folks? Is race and/or racism lurking behind everything these days? Here, I made a few tweets myself so I could be like the HuffPo, Macklemore, and Ms. Bogado:

But in all seriousness, folks -- this is where we are today. "Racism" is everywhere to an alarmingly increasing number of people. Such is the fallout from inanities of like comparing Trayvon Martin to Emmett Till, claiming that requiring an ID to vote is like Jim Crow laws, and stating that comparisons of Boss Obama to Tiger Woods aren't due to golf, but due to the worst stereotypes of black men.

It'd be hilarious if it wasn't so sad. And ultimately, dangerous.

I went to Aura's twitter feed. It wasn't pretty. I wonder if she checks for racists under her bed at night. She's pretty obsessed...

She probably does. She's yet another loon who sees racism where it doesn't exist. It's extremely dangerous, because constantly playing the race card trivializes real instances of racism. I have a MLK-like view of race relations: I view people as people, not as checkered boxes. Unfortunately in today's ultra-PC world, being colorblind is considered anathema.
