You know what really pisses me off? It looks like Barack Obama is going to throw his hat into the ring. He’s in the running to become our first Muslim president, if I understand it correctly.
When I talk to people about it I do a clever little test – I throw in a racist remark to see if they’re racist. Sometimes I say that it’s too bad there’s still so much racism in the USA. Sometimes I just say that he looks a little dusky to be a good candidate.
It’s interesting to see people’s reactions. Not once has anyone directly called me on my racism. Oh sure, they’ll look a bit uncomfortable and change the subject, or call me a fat-faced dilletante idiot, but I get that all the time. Sometimes they’ll even agree that racism still exists in this country! Acknowledging the possibility of other people’s racism – what I call “stealth racism” or “racism by anonymizing proxy”- is the worse kind of racism of all.
I’ve done this test on almost ten of my top blog-chums – and these are the people who are going to decide the next election! I hear that even the black guy has done a website for his campaign.
I’m sick of people not realising how racist I am. How about you?
