Fun With RacismAugust 28th, 2010 at 12:50 pm by Cranky
During the Obama/McCain campaign, I created this YouTube video to poke fun at the constant accusations of racism that were just then starting. Of course, I had no idea how bad it would get and how it would continue with every talking head explaining away one of Obama’s failures.
I’m reposting it not only because it is still relevant, but also because of the hundreds of comments I’ve received. Among the comments from the semi-literate (f**k Obama, McCain suxx, etc.) and the real racists from both ends, there are comments that fascinate me. People from all ends of the political spectrum are seeing what they want to see. Check it out. It’s only 37 seconds. I’ll wait for you.
Some conservatives think this is a blatant smear on McCain put there by liberals. Liberals often cry racism, no surprise there, even though the treatment is so absurd.
My favorite comment comes from a guy who said he is “baked as f**k” and still knows its a joke.
So, does anyone know if there is a psychological or cultural term for people who see something through their own biases? Maybe I can get a PhD in this.
