  •  Ah, those lovely white folks (11+ / 0-)

    who watched a certain comedy routine of Chris Rock's, that he very explicitly said was not meant for them, over and over and over and over and over again until they had memorized every single word of it and could recite it at will.

    That photo reminds me of every smugly ignorant to  Rightwing to the point of a 21rst Century Know Nothing Party angry white person who I have ever met who took the time to memorize that stand-up routine verbatim like it was a lost book of the asshole bible.

    It captured something I noticed first back in high school when I was a kid.

    A certain kind of entitled white person is walking around just seething, really, really wanting to have the freedom to go screaming the N word at any African-American who gets on their nerves and have it be socially acceptable.

    Standing up for a murderer with a badge, beaming with pride and thuggishly browbeating anyone who dares to question them or their motivation, is their substitute for doing that.

        Just last night I was at a rural Vermont restaurant and there was a party of 5--two couples and a single guy--older white allegedly some were Ex-Military.  

        One guy had one of those "carrying"  voices which was fine up until somehow they got on the topic of OBAMA and how "He wants to put EVERYONE on welfare"  and how "Unemployment is the worst it has ever (!!!) been"  and then they wandered off to COLIN POWELL---

        And basically it was that HE was a Good N------;  and THIS GUY in the WHITE HOUSE was an UPPITY N-----.

        They didn't use those words but the INTENT was VERY clear.  Even the WAITRESS decided that ENOUGH WAS ENOUGH and went over with dessert menus etc and LOUDLY diverted the convo.

        Now Vermont is in some ways VERY progressive.  But--and you needed to KNOW this--these people might LIVE in Vermont but they were never FROM there--they were all from the leafy suburbs of Jersey!  How do I know this?  From those very same suburbs!

        I just never got that particular childhood disease.

        Sad that this pervasive hatred is showing up allll over the place.
