Media elites like Matthews are fond of calling everyone who disagrees with Obama a racist. But isn’t the true meaning of racism couching everything primarily based on the color of someone’s skin? Last night after Obama’s State of the Union Address, Chris Matthews blurted out that he as actually able to forget that obama was black for an hour. This means that for all other hours, he is completely aware of the color of the President’s skin.
From the HuffPo here:
Chris Matthews is definitely going to take some heat for exclaiming that he “forgot [Obama] was black tonight for an hour… I said wait a minute, he’s an African American guy in front of a bunch of other white people.” Matthews was analyzing President Obama’s first State of the Union speech when he made the remark.
Except, of course, when Matthews and Olbermann accuse everyone else of being racist for opposing Obama, or deciding that a pickup truck is “racist imagery.” I can certainly tell you how this would have been interpreted coming from the mouth of Sarah Palin, Scott Brown, or any conservative or Republican talking head on a news show. They would have been pilloried for suggesting that national leadership somehow doesn’t go with an African-American background, and labeled as latent racists.
Matthews is such a dumbass. Obama is only HALF black.
