The Pot Calling The Kettle Black
Or are black pots now called African-Pot-Americans?

I must admit that I've been tardy on getting off my keester and getting this post knocked out, but hey... better late than never.

Anyhow, the fire storm of not all that long ago when The Empty Suit referred to his grandmother (on his mom's side) in the following manner;
"The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity, she doesn't. But she is a typical white person who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, there's a reaction that's been bred into our experiences that don't go away, and that sometimes comes out in the wrong way, and that's just the nature of race in our society."Interesting. I just can't help but wonder how many "typical White persons" there are it his rallies having their liberal Obagasms every time he speaks in his vague generalities way?

But what struck me right off the bat when this whole "typical White person" episode started was the similarities when Ross Perot spoke before the NAACP Convention way back when he was making his bid for The White House.

For those who have forgotten, here's a gentle reminder of the depths of hatred and hypocrisy engrained in most Black Democrats and their equally worthless and self-loathing White cohorts.

From the archives of the New York Times;
Talking about the nation's economic problems, Mr. Perot said: "Financially, at least, it's going to be a long, hot summer. I don't have to tell you who gets hurt first when this sort of thing happens, do I? You, your people do. Your people do. I know that and you know that."

One man called out objecting to the phrase. He called out again later when Mr. Perot said it was "your people" who suffer most from runaway crime.

Willie Clark, president of the N.A.A.C.P. branch in San Bernadino, Calif., said the overall tone of Mr. Perot's remarks and particularly his use of the phrase "your people" reflected how culturally out of touch he was with his audience.

"When he said 'you people' or 'your people,' it was like waving a red flag in front of a bull," he said. "It's something white folks have used when they don't want to call you nigger, but they don't want to treat you like an equal."
First off, never mind the fact that what Perot said was one of the most frank and (for lack of a better expression) pro-Black speeches ever made. But all that aside, this typical mixed-race White and Pacific Islander guy understands now.... if a Black makes a broad, sweeping racial generality, everything's just hunky-dory. But if a White guy does it, that's the same as referring to all Blacks as niggers.

OK, I get now.
