Modern-Day Slave Traders

When your only claim to fame flows from your bringing any discussion around to a talk about skin color, you're going to see skin color motives (wrap your brain around that concept) in any discussion.

Thus we have, according to our modern-day slave traders (those who earn a tidy living off the racism issue), "code words" abounding.   Racial code words - words or phrases that have absolutely nothing to do with race, but are all about race anyway, because they say so.

(Hey, it's how they earn a living; cut 'em some slack.)

Speaking of whom ...
Al Sharpton and Sheila Jackson Lee Translate Racial Code
By Jeannie DeAngelis

This whole "Differ with Barack Obama and You're a Racist" thing is getting old. Take for example Texas Democrat congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. Sheila has already made it known that disagreeing with the first black president instantly makes you a racist. Besides being at odds with Barack, more recently Jackson Lee has also declared racist any mention -- by a white candidate, that is -- of blue-collar work or, for that matter, any-color food stamps.

according to the congresswoman, Newt Gingrich daring to mention the words "food stamps" was inappropriate code whose intent was merely to "generate and signify race." Now, Sheila Jackson Lee's official racially offended male counterpart, Reverend Al Sharpton, has decided that, if it seems rude and involves Obama and a Republican, it should immediately be exposed for what it is -- racial antagonism.

The latest Republican to be installed in the Racist Hall of Shame is Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona. After meeting and greeting President Obama on the tarmac of Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and despite being sued by his administration, Governor Brewer invited him to have lunch and join her for a tour of the border.

Speaking directly into the camera, Al Sharpton passionately addressed Jan Brewer directly, saying, "Thin-skinned? You felt threatened? What does that mean, you felt threatened? By the president of the United States? This is yet another example of disrespect and delegitimatizing this president." [link]
It should be mentioned that the only reason Al Sharpton got his gig on MSNBC is his ability to hawk his slave trade so well. He's certainly not that bright. Nor telegenic. Nor articulate. But there he is.

As for these two aggrieved souls, more power to them. Everyone has to earn a living. And they are so good at what they do.

Now, as for all you racist bastards out there ...
