A Mostly Center-Right Place For Those With Irritable Obama Syndrome and Diversity Fatigue

Diversity Fatigue Alert: Your RACE CARD HAS BEEN DECLINED November 20, 2009

Readers may have noticed that Afrocity has been on the hibernation tour. Burned out/fed up on all of the bullshit.

Obviously I need a pick me up. A shot in the arm from some conservative comrades.  Alas, I am in Chicago. There are none. Only murders, cover-ups, cold weather, exorbitant taxes and Obama heads.

Even-so in this topsy-turvy political world called Chicago, there was one highlight. Mike Huckabee was coming to a nearby suburban Borders book store.  I was craving a conservative fix and Fox News just not cutting it.  Ironically, Al Gore was appearing the very next day in Chicago. No 35 mile drive to the burbs.

In the end, I saw neither man.  Which one tempted me the most? Mike Huckabee of course. There is nothing worse than having to face your formerly liberal conscience  to say that you do not give a rat’s ass about seeing the “goracle”. A man that you once voted for because you thought he would have made a great president but now you find him to be truly stomach turning.  I can hear him screaming that I am not green therefore I am racist.

Replace “green” with “supporting the health care bill”  and according to the honorable Jesse Jackson that makes Afrocity a racist too.

Jesse Jackson: ‘You can’t vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man’

By Mike Soraghan - 11/18/09

The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Wednesday night criticized Rep. Artur Davis (D-Ala.) for voting against the Democrats’ signature healthcare bill.

“We even have blacks voting against the healthcare bill from Alabama,” Jackson said at a reception Wednesday night. “You can’t vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man.”

Rep. Artur Davis (D-Ala). According To Jesse Jackson, he cannot call himself a black man because he voted against the health care reform bill.

Not a black man because he voted against the health care reform bill.

The remark stirred a murmur at the reception, held by the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Foundation as part of a series of events revolving around the 25th anniversary of Jackson’s run for president. Several CBC members were in attendance, including Chairwoman Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), who’d introduced Jackson.

Davis, who is running for governor, is the only black member of Congress from Alabama.

He is also the only member of the CBC to have voted against the healthcare bill earlier this month.

Davis referred to Jackson’s 1988 run for president in a statement, issued through his office, that said he would not engage Jackson on his criticism.

“One of the reasons that I like and admire Rev. Jesse Jackson is that 21 years ago he inspired the idea that a black politician would not be judged simply as a black leader,” Davis’s statement said. “The best way to honor Rev. Jackson’s legacy is to decline to engage in an argument with him that begins and ends with race.”

Jackson said later that he “didn’t call anybody by name and I won’t.”

He added that he wasn’t saying that black lawmakers must vote a certain way. Instead, they should vote the interests of the people in their districts, and he said the healthcare bill would help Alabama because it’s one of the poorest states in the country.

“The poorest people need healthcare protection,” Jackson said. “They have the highest infant mortality and the lowest life expectancy. They’re dying from lack of access.”

Other members of the CBC found no fault in Jackson’s words. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) was in the audience. He called Jackson’s criticism of Davis “accurate,” but said he did not hear Jackson say “You can’t vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man.”

Now you know what Afrocity would say: Country before race, gender or party!!!

What gives Rev. Jesse Jackson the right to say who is and isn’t black? Look Jesse…Thank you for your contributions to African American history but you of all people, the man who stood by Martin Luther King Jr.’s side as he was assassinated should know that no man worth his salt will be intimated by the hateful words and deeds of others.

I suppose you voted for Obama while secretly wanting to cut off his nuts because ….he was black?

Jesse are you OK? Are we talking about the same man who fought for the civil rights of others? Now you have the audacity to take away someone’s “black card” (As if there should even be such an idiotic thing) because they voted against the health care bill?

Who died and made you the melanin fairy?

At precisely the point where we are in a so called “post racial America”, the weak Uncle Tom vs. the symbolic black Patriarchal Mandingo leadership meme once again attempts to strip power and virility from any person of color that dares to cut the cord with Democrats. Sounds like a plantation to me.

It is hard to imagine such idiocy but while we are speaking of race baiting morons, Chris Mathews was in rare form while describing a Sarah Palin book signing tour stop in Michigan:

I agree with Goldberg and while we are on the subject…Hey Chris Mathews how many black people live in your Upper Westside posh apartment complex in NYC?

    Ok, I thought that I figured you might have some very candid thoughts Afrocity, I was right. Great rhyme stopthepresses

    Anyone that knows why I can’t subscribe to comments anymore on WordPress blogs gets my eternal devotion. I had previously reserved it just for Ron Paul.

  3. I really like that Bernie Goldberg. He also wrote a great book on the media and the primaries.

    Amazing civil rights action.. Great post..

  5. Holly Says:

    Sometimes I feel like we should get paid for being more involved in our own government than our own representatives.

    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. fought and died for all men to be equal, as was designed by our Creator. Jesse Jackson used King’s death to promote his own career, which turned out to be a proclamation of hate over four decades.

    You should check out hillbuzz.org. I think you would like their blog. My two favorite blogs are based in Chicago and that’s all the Chicago I need.

  6. The only good thing to come out of Jackson’s remark is that it brought Afrocity out of hibernation. Great post!

    AC, the PUMA logo is down for everyone not just you.

    =)

    Anybody reading Palin’s book? It’s well written and captures your attention. Like her or not, just watching her puts a smile on my face. Success is the best revenge. It also makes me laugh, while pundits are busy debating whether or not she is competent enough to lead, she is out there leading.

    I agree with her on many things, don’t agree with her on others, but regardless, I sure do celebrate her fighting spirit.

    “Who died and made you the melanin fairy?”

    OMG! Afrocity. That is the funniest thing I have read all year!

    Thanks….

    SYD

  10. [...] Obama, who is the most pre-eminently mockable man ALIVE. Surprise! When the Left ridicules Obama, it’s not racist. Well, I’ll [...]

  11. Janis Says:

    You’re safe then, Afrocity. You’re not and never will be a black MAN. :-)

    Does it even OCCUR to Jackson to make a TOKEN admission that over half of the black people on this Earth aren’t black MEN?

    • I had two black coworkers say that there are no black people in Somalia, the conversation degenerated from there into “there are no black people in Africa” but it was put so suggestion that black people originated in either LA or Detroit.

      And that’s the point where I decided to leave the office for a smoke.

  12. aussie Says:

    Afrocity, you need to reach out to the guys at Hillbuzz. They are in Chicago too. You are not alone.

    Hmm…. gay guys and a young smart black woman…. :-)

    Another great post.

    Hey! I live in the Chicago area and I ain’t no murder or Obama head! But I’m more of a libertarian than conservative, so I don’t know about giving you a pick me up/shot in the arm.
