White America Has Lost Its Mind
About 12:01 on the afternoon of
January 20, 2009, the white American mind began to unravel.
Newsweek has found, nearly a quarter of Americans believe that Obama is
a Muslim, with
It had been a pretty good run up to that point. The brains of white
folks had been humming along
cogently for near on 400 years on this continent, with little sign that
any serious trouble was brewing.
White people, after all, had managed to invent a spiffy new form of
self-government so that all white
men (and, eventually, women) could have a say in how white people were
taxed and governed. White
minds had also nearly universally occupied just about every branch of
that government and, for more
than two centuries, had kept sole possession of the leadership of its
executive branch (whose parsonage,
after all, is called the White House).
But when that streak was broken—and, for the first time, a non-white
president accepted the oath
of office—white America rapidly began to lose its grip.
As with other forms of dementia, the signs weren't obvious at first.
After the 2008 election, when
Tom DeLay suggested that instead of a formal inauguration, Barack Obama
should "have a nice little
chicken dinner, and we'll save the $125 million," black folks didn't
miss the implication. References to
chicken, particularly of the fried variety, have long served as a kind
of code when white folks referred
to black people and their gustatory preferences—and weren't many of us
already accustomed to older
white politicians making such gaffes? But who among us sensed that it
was a harbinger that an entire
nation was plunging into madness?
barely 42 percent of the
nation accepting his claim that he's a Christian. CNN finds that a
Americans also believe that
Obama was "probably or definitely" born in another country.
Harris found in an online
poll that 14 percent of Americans believe in their hearts that Obama
is the antichrist, with
nearly a quarter of Republicans saying so.
Should people that stupid be allowed to vote?
Should we have a minimum IQ requirement, say around 60 or so?
Think how easy it would be to vote if only people with an IQ higher
than 60 could vote!
