Get your heart medication at hand. . . . Then please come CAPTION Fox darling Larry Elder!!



Larry ("Slavery was just a little misunderstanding in history." Elder is saying, "You're right, Bill, I don't think there's any racism in America today. . . . None! . . . And let me tell you why. . . . Studies show black people use the 'N' word approximately 12.8 times more often to refer to fellow black people often than whites use it. . . . Further, black people tend to act out and yell at the police and other authorizes all the time, like they're begging for a beating . . . In short, if black people would act more like white people, you'd see an end of racial strife in this country. . . The real racism can be seen in the war on white males!!!! . . . Why, let me tell you . . ."

*********************************************************

Above CAPTION loosely based on the following Media Matters story:

1. I needed a barf bag more than heart meds.

The sobriquet, "Uncle Tom", was the first impression I had. Elder's cringeworthy recitation of the same trite litany of rightwing talking points to smear the victim is the stale theme song that defines Fox news race baiting.

They did the same with Trayvon Martin, hauling out their contracted black contributors to help demonize that teenager in a media driven blitzkrieg to turn public opinion against him.

2. Makes sense

Black people are black; therefore they are the real racist just for being black. Think about it- if poor people were to act like rich people they'd be no poverty. If the Jews in the 30's and 40's had acted like the Nazis , there would have been no Holocaust. If the Native Americans had acted like --- well, you get the idea. The nerve of those "different" people .They just keep bringing it on themselves

4. Just to be clear, CAPTIONing at DU is traditionally a creative activity.

That is, Elder didn't really say that. But like other CAPTIONers, I tried to channel his essence. (By the wuality of your post, I think you already know that, but just in case . . .)

Your post by the way is delicious! I mean, in one sentence you showed how the War on Poverty can really be won!! congratulations!!! (If only LBJ had you in his cabinet.)

5. "I know, Bill, it simply doesn't make a lick of sense.

All black people are really politically conservative at heart. ,. . . In fact, black voters are for voter ID laws, the freedom to fly the Southern flag on state buildings, the freedom to refuse service to anyone the owner of the establishment wants, and stop-and-frisk policing policies, you name it. . . It's the Democrats who fool them into thinking that such issues are not in their benefit."
