Please, please, please excuse my French. But ABC News today ran a story that felt to me like they were saying: "N****r gets to ride in a free limousine."
Read it yourself. Tell me what you think. But first page back through your memory banks, and ask if you can recall the secured transportation, or their budget for entertaining heads of state--say, duries the presidencies of Bush, Reagan, or Bush; or even, for that matter, William Jefferson Clinton--described in the media as a "perk."
I detect a racial undertone, and some will find me oversensitive. Fine. Let's look at this ideologically. When Gov. Jerry Brown of California, cognizant of the political damage the conservatives' "limousine liberal" stereotype was doing, switched to a modest sedan...the conservatives just made fun of him for that. Liberals can't win. And ABC News insults us all.
Help us spread the word about these important stories...
