Am I the only who feels that the presidency of Barack Obama has led to a national race baiting contest?
Just line up at the county fair like hog calling.

No one is safe from being a racist, not minorities, not your Persian cat, not even your own fetus as it slumbers in the womb. Sunday is a day that I feel the urge to run to the bookstore. Yesterday was a special treat because I had a coupon from Borders for $2 off a magazine of my choice. Great! I can get that September issue of Italian VOGUE I wanted without feeling so guilty about the US $15 price tag and 10.25% sales tax imposed upon me by the great Cook (crook ) County politicians. I need something stimulating to read while I am accidentally overdosing on aspirin before my pre-Blago court trial briefings (wink).
As I entered my local Borders, I was struck by a very amusing sight. It was not your usual bookstore scenes that make you go “ugh”. There was no metrosexual masturbating to The Advocate in the CD section or the abusive husband yelling at his wife for taking to long to get the money out of her pocketbook. This time it was an actual magazine cover, Newsweek in fact. Stopping dead in my tracks, I squinted to make sure that what I was seeing was indeed what I thought. It was and I sort of went “ugh”.
Abruptly, I laughed and walked away to the fashion magazine section. Seriously I did. Why? Because I am fed up with “race in my face”.
Sure it is better to have a dialogue about race than no dialogue at all but this is getting beyond ridiculous. I am every much against babies being implicated as racists and you should be too. Isn’t life difficult enough as it is without burdening our children with our social Obamabotic obsessions? In terms of conditioning, there is really no difference between creating a child that is hyper-uber politically and environmentally correct and anti-racists and the black family that indoctrinates their child into believing that the world is against him because of his skin color. Is free-will still being sold at a store near you?

Bad news, parents: YOUR BABY IS PROBABLY A RACIST, and that means that you’ve got a whoooole lot of explaining to do. According to a Newsweek cover story, studies show that children as young as six months old “judge people based on skin color.” And children as old as six years old will refuse to accept the possibility of a black Santa—but will eventually concede that “black Santa could fill in for White Santa if he was hurt.” White people: Why are your widdle babies so racist?
a) My kid isn’t racist: We watch Sesame Street, and there are some very, very diverse Muppets on that program.
b) SHHHH! Don’t say the R-A-C-E word around Jimmy! Everybody’s equal, Jimmy. I’ll explain that vague sentiment when you’re older.
c) Mall Santas.
d) As Sady of Tiger Beatdown and Amanda of the Sexist discussed in this week’s edition of Sexist Beatdown: Uhh, maybe Newsweek is kind of exaggerating about the whole racist baby thing, since the real problem appears to be progressive hippie parents scared shitless about even raising the issue of race with their children. Okay, also mall Santas.
AMANDA: hey, racist baby.
SADY: hey there!
AMANDA: are you ready to discuss how modern equality-minded parents have all taken to blaming their latent racism on their impressionable young children?
SADY: ha, yes. the babies, they are all RACISTS! sort of. first of all, i think the very RACIST BABY tagline is kind of hilariously off, in that the actual “children as young as 6 months old discriminate on the basis of skin color” thing is, apparently, literally wrong. what children as young as 6 months old do is look longer at photos of people who are not the same race as their parents, according to the article. but, you know, that is not SENSATIONAL. so let’s just imply with our headline that six-month-old white babies are already full of societally determined anger and hate.
AMANDA: bad but, importantly, it is also The Longer Gaze at People Who Are Not the Race of Their Parents That Shall Not Be Named. since the main parenting tactic unearthed in this story is: as long as I never mention race or racism, my child will come out unracist. to the point that some ostensibly nonracist parents DROPPED OUT OF THE STUDY when they found out they would be forced to discuss race with their children. “not under my roof.”
SADY: yeah, exactly. and the result, apparently, IS that the four and five-year-olds end up with pretty fucked-up ideas about race..
AMANDA: and also, hilariously, report that they think their parents are racists, too
