Tom Shillue on Janeane Garafalo:
Conservatives will even buy into this. They will say, “Well, I know that there is still a lot of racism out there, but…”
That’s the problem. People are unwilling to declare that it’s over. It’s done. The number of Americans who believe one race is inferior to another is so small that they are not worth discussing. They are silly people. And they have no power.
I like Morgan Freeman’s position. On “60 Minutes” a few years ago, he declared Black History Month “ridiculous,” prompting this question:
Mike Wallace: But how are we going to get rid of racism?
Morgan Freeman: Stop talking about it.
I like that. Let’s just stop talking about it. But in order to stop talking about it we are going to have to talk about it for a little while. To declare that it is over. It has gone away.
Oh, I know what my friends on Big Hollywood will say. “Racism is alive and well – on the left!” Yes, but even that is fake racism. There is an obsession with race, certainly, but only so it can be used as a weapon to intimidate. It’s a way to stop debate even before it begins.
Meanwhile, the Black Sphere writes:
As a black man, I love it when ignorant white women like Janeane Garofalo speak for all blacks (…)
The irony of Garofalo’s comments is that they point directly at her own racist party: the Democrats!
I am always amazed at how well Democrats argue the tenets of racism…against themselves. The party that founded the Ku Klux Klan has the nerve to proselytize to Republicans about racism.
Democrats have done nothing, repeat nothing for blacks, except to exploit blacks for Democrats’ own racist agendas…
