What would the lapdog palace guard media have done if a delegate at the Republican Convention in Tampa had worn a button on his hat that sported the words I wrote in the title to this post? Even if someone at the Republican Convention truly felt that way, they would not be so stupid as to wear a professionally made button expressing their sentiment.
Yet, it seems that someone at the Democrat Convention in Charlotte had no such qualms about broadcasting his racism for all to see. You can click this link to see the button, but for the record, it says:
Once you vote black, you never go back.
The double standards of racism have long since lost their ability to shock me, but not to disgust me.
I still remember around 1995 or 1996 when I was stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington where I saw a black soldier in the chow hall wearing a t-shirt that said:
The blacker the college, the sweeter the knowledge.
I'm sure that soldier probably thought he was just sporting a positive message, but all you have to do is substitute the word "black" with the word "white" and you get the idea of how appalling it is that so many people have no problem with garb like these buttons and t-shirts I just mentioned.
