The Black Hole of Grievances

July 18, 2008

This insanity is one more reason why Barack Obama cannot be elected President of these United States.

The YouTube video shows  a commissioner in Dallas discussing traffic tickets that just seem to disappear into a “Black Hole.” However, there is more than one ignoramus on the Dallas commission who took offense at the phrase “Black Hole.” Apparently these dunces have never heard of outer space; all they can relate to are “Black Hoes” or “Black Hos” or however the term for black woman is spelled by Rappers. The dunces took immediate umbrage that a white man would dare to speak Rapper language, and became racially offended, demanding an apology. When The First Dunce is interviewed afterwards, he complained that it’s also hurtful that “angel food cakes” are white, and “devil’s food cakes” are black. Good Lord, some people can take offence so easily that their racist grievances could fill up that Black Hole in no time flat.

Now I never knew that “Devil’s Food Cake” was black. All that I’ve ever seen were “Chocolate.” However, in today’s United States, “Chocolate” is probably a racist slur too, although I’m not really sure. I just cannot keep abreast with all the changes in the language brought about by people who can barely speak our Shakespeare’s beloved English. All I know, Dallas, is that these are YOUR “elected” leaders!  Color should not matter. What should matter, is to elect grown-ups with brains, which you have failed to do.

This incident in Dallas has nothing to do with Presidential candidate Barack Obama, yet it has everything to do with him. If he cannot be treated like every other candidate who has run for President for fear of offending his “fragile” racial psyche, how can he be tempered by the fire of the campaign and have his mettle tested? Answer – he cannot in today’s atmosphere of demand for racist grievances. 

When citizens go to the polls to vote in November, no matter how attractive Barack Obama, voters will be remembering “Black Holes,” the screeds of Reverend Wright, Whoopie Goldberg’s language on morning television, and last but not least the “most reverend” Reverend Jesse Jackson, all of whom continually demand that the rest of us treat members of their race as delicate, immature children.
