CODE WORDS, PART II - YOU AIN'T SLICK
I caught this comment from my girl, Rikyrah, over at the Field Negro's Blog, regarding the Borg Queen and her husband's use of code words regarding Barack Obama's challenge to her getting POTUS:
Like so many in the media, until Donna Brazile and Rep. Clyburn brought it up, the MSM chose to ignore it.
There are plenty of us, on Black radio, Black talk radio, in the Black Blogosphere, who have been bringing this up.
We brought it up, after it became obvious that it was a PATTERN.
The disingenousness of the 'media' to connect the dots is what has disgusted some of us out here.
These are not 'Isolated Incidents'.
They are neither ISOLATED nor INCIDENTAL.
They begin with Sheehan.
Then his false apology; Clinton's fake apology - fake, why? Because PENN was on Hardball shuffling the same swill not an hour after the debate.
Then there were the THREE Iowa organizers that had to resign because of the Madrassa LIE.
Then came the Bob Kerrey endorsement of Clinton and his 'it's great Obama can relate to the Black Youth/Islamic Manchurian Candidate/Secular Madrassa' SMEAR...followed by oops, an apology.
Then came the Charlie Rose interview, which dripped with 'Who-Does-This-Negro-Think-He-Is?'
The MLK insult....which supposedly The Community ' Misunderstood'.
The Mandela insult....which supposedly The Community ' Misunderstood'.
Hillary - the Country going ' backwards' by electing Obama
Then, we have the comments by Donna Brazile:
For him to go after Obama using "fairy tale," calling him a "kid," as he did last week, it's an insult. And I tell you, as an African-American, I find his words and his tone to be very depressing.
BOTH Clyburn & Brazille are from the SOUTH - they know what KID means when referencing a Black Man...it's first cousin to BOY- and I assume, even with all the MSM's deliberate cluelessness, they get why THAT is offensive.
Then, we have the Cuomo ' Shuck and Jive' - yet another ' misinterpretation' of the English Language.
And finally, we have today's ' Isolated Incident' from The Guardian:
In the words of that Clinton adviser: "If you have a social need, you're with Hillary. If you want Obama to be your imaginary hip black friend and you're young and you have no social needs, then he's cool."
But, of course, I know....tomorrow, the Clintons will explain how THIS TOO, was ' misinterpreted'.
Funny how many times the ENGLISH LANGUAGE has to be ' reinterpreted' and 'explained' to folks for whom English IS THEIR FIRST LANGUAGE.
I will say it again:
When 'Isolated Incidents' are neither
They form a PATTERN.
Be smart and choose to accept what the PATTERN tells you and go on accordingly.
It's 'Dogwhistle' politics, and Black folk understand the call of that whistle better than anyone..
Because our SURVIVAL in America depends on it.
But, it's ok. I know. It's all in my ' imagination'.
Someone on another blog wrote this, and they weren't the first to write this:
the clintons are smart politicians. furthermore, they are smarter than most white politicians about racial politics. they and their surrogates are goading blacks (i'm korean-american) into reacting to these loaded words and narratives (that strike a nerve with blacks) to remind white voters that black voters are "overly sensitive" and supposedly will never accept white people's "innocent" comments. can't win my friends.
Thanks for the comments.
I think James Brown said it:
I'd rather die standing than live on my knees.
That is what this is about.
It's about being insulted by supposed ' friends'.
I said, in the beginning, if this was a Republican, it would be one thing. Because Republicans are SUPPOSED to do this sort of shit.
But, to accept this from a Democrat?
And, yeah, I know, 'innocent' comments that we ' imagine'.
I know the drill, but unlike 40 years ago, we can speak up now. THAT is one thing our forefathers and mothers obtained for us.
As my fellow blogger ABB says about the Clintons and their shills:
The Shit Ain't Subtle, and You Ain't Slick.
