OK, so it's a bit inartfully worded. No, racism isn't ended yet. But didn't you know what it meant, average person with half a brain? Says Althouse:
First, you have to be enough of a douchebag to act like you don't see that "ending racism" is a process and that a person might have a role in that process even though that role didn't go so far as to entirely complete the process.
And then you have to think, here on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, that it's worth exploiting Rosa Parks for one more opportunity to bray at Republicans. Over nothing!
Speaking of douchebaggery, lo and behold there was our 'ol pal Dan Slott, writer of Superior Spider-Man, jumping right in:
Quick. Guess the skin color of the person who tweeted this. RT @GOP Today we remember Rosa Parks’ bold stand and her role in ending racism.— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) December 1, 2013
Surprise, surprise, those. For the record, Slott did "thank" the GOP account for eventually amending the wording of their original tweet; however, there's certainly no doubt where Slott stands politically. He once got miffed (at yours truly) for pointing out this anti-Fox News tweet of his ... because I failed to mention he also retweeted similar posts critical of NPR and some other MSM outlets. (To him, I was supposed to monitor his tweets 24-7.) As if that was supposed to make him somehow politically "balanced." Right. Balanced like this? Or, like this? Or, like this?
Danny continues to live in his insulated "progressive" bubble, blissfully unaware that there are conservative/libertarian/Republican comicbook readers out there ... whom he continues to alienate with his LIV boilerplate. *Sigh*
UPDATE: [Lefty] comics legend Gerry Conway tweets:

You oughta talk to your colleague Dan Slott about "making issues" where there aren't any, Ger.Posted by Hube at December 2, 2013 03:56 PM | TrackBack
