Since the Democrat primary and now the general, Barack Obama’s enemies have been trying to turn him into an angry black man. They haven’t been able to do it, and it confuses and frustrates them.
Toby Keith: ‘Black Society’ Thinks Obama ‘Talks, Acts and Carries Himself As A Caucasian’»
Even though the black society would pull for him, I still think that they think in the back of their mind that the only reason that he is in is because he talks, acts and carries himself as a Caucasian.
So Toby Keith is basically saying that Barack Obama is a Tom. To idiots like Keith, there is only white and black and nothing in between. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are black to guys like Keith, but Obama isn’t because… well, why isn’t he? To Keith, a “real black man” could never get “in” to the system like a white man Caucasian.
If people like Keith had any cultural education at all, other than knowing how to skin varmints and make stew out of road-kill, then he’d know that in the black communities across America, those of mixed background are considered… you got it… black. Asian and black. White and black. Hispanic and black. And on and on. They are all black people. Even if you don’t admit that you’re black, like say Tiger Woods or Maria Carey, black folks across America will still acknowledge you as… you got it… black. How do I know? Because like Barack Obama, I’m of mixed heritage, a black father and a white mother. I think Woopie explained it to Hasselbeck on the View not too long ago. I’m paraphrasing:
If the KKK will chase your ass… you’re black.
McCain’s latest attack ad has images of Obama mixed in with Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, an obvious attempt at portraying Obama as a black predator of white women. You know that Paris and Britney, America’s princes, need to be protected from guys like Obama, otherwise they won’t be able to make their sex tapes for the Internet, or shave their heads or make out with Madonna.
The day after Beck’s “colorless” remark, Rush Limbaugh said that Obama should “renounce” his race and just “become white.” Extreme conservative talker Melanie Morgan has called Obama a “halfrican” who “is not allowed to wear the African-American badge because his family are not the descendants of slaves.” Tucker Carlson wondered about Obama, “Is he black enough?”

In the conservatives failed attempt at turning Obama into Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton or Rev. Wright, a “real black man”, they now want to turn him into an Uncle Tom, a black man that kisses the white man’s ass to get ahead. Yet another transparent attack from the Wingers that simply won’t fly.
