"I think it's funny that I, a black man, would never have considered the possible racial implications of that gargoyle."

The Crack Emcee said.
Hell, I wouldn't have even cared - while two white folks are all concerned and ready to point the finger at,...who? What? History? Spare me.

I, too, am joining everyone else in voting for Jimmy Carter - not because I actually saw him, but because I live in the here and now, and not somebody else's past.

Give it a try.
(By the way, Crack has a great blog.)

Morgan Freeman may be a great guy but I really can't stand him, not because of what he may or may not be, because he has been turned into an icon: the noble (and therefore uncriticizable) black man incarnate. He's a pawn being used (willingly) to advance the communist agenda, and I'll have none of it.

Carter, not supported by anything but an appeal to his own authority as one of the good southerners, serves willingly as a useful, slanderous media-adminstration poodle.

Listen how at the end Williams quotes Carter to level the charge of racism yet again.

Aside, does it look like NBC News is using some form of soft-focus, "pigment correction" that fades in and out on Carter's face during the interview?

That's a really interesting exchange.

Morgan Freeman asks Wallace: "When is White History month?"

Wallace's reply. "Hey don't look at me, I'm Jewish."

In other words ... "I'm not white, I'm Jewish." As if he can't be some racist white guy because he, Mike Wallace, is Jewish.

Morgan Freeman is a lot closer to Martin Luther King than Wallace or any other black leader in America. When he looks at Mike Wallace ... Morgan Freeman doesn't see a white guy to be judged by the color of his skin.

He sees a man... to be judged by the content of his character.

Would that Barack Obama were thus.

Actually, my firt thought was: what's Art Buchwald doing on that building?

I really didn't see Jimmy Carter.

How come we wonder if a black gargoyle is racist when we don't wonder if the three white gargoyles are racist too?

The claim that a black gargoyle might be inherently racist is itself racist.

miller said... some point we will stop thinking "black people are to be treated like ordinary people."

Instead, we will think, "why would you think someone's color has anything to do with their character?"

Morgan Freeman seems entirely comfortable with who he is, and is also comfortable enough to tell Mike Wallace off.

For the saga of someone repetitively pwn3d by women, French people, NewAge thought, and homeopathy, "The Macho Response" seems a strange choice for a title.

traditionalguy said...

FLS...I believe that The Macho Response refers to Crack's willingness to confront the mainstreamed evil of cults that the rest of us really don't like to talk about so people will not think that we are weirdos. Crack feels that ignoring cults until they go away has been a terrible tactic.
