In a recent VDARE column, I wrote
that, "When it comes to... criticism of Obama, even the most obviously non-racial disparagement of Obama has been seen as cloaked bigotry."
The two criticisms I brought up specifically were "radical"
However, it looks like I missed an even more outrageous "code word."
According to a Reuters article
References to his alleged â€?inexperienceâ€? as a one-term U.S. Senator...could also be seen as subtle racial digs, political commentators say.Inexperience might be a substitute for an idea with roots in the era of U.S. slavery that African Americans couldnâ€™t be trusted.[When it comes to race, U.S. politicians talk in code, By Matthew Bigg, Reuters, August 14, 2008]
Although ridiculous, I can see at least some sort of logical plausibility over how "elitist"
or "radical" c
ould be a "code word."
However, I am still scratching my head as to how these people think "inexperienced"
has anything to do with slavery.
